I must be honest with myself. I JUST don’t believe that I can make as much money as I want to as a coach. I want to be financially free, I already make good money (multiple six figures in corporate), and I simply do not believe that I will be able to make as much money to feel financially free as a coach.
I’m terrified that I can’t do it. I have beliefs like I can only do that if I’m a business coach to other coaches, which I just don’t really want to do.
I have a lot of fear around quitting my well-paying corporate job to become a coach. I would really like to change this belief so that I can go all-in on my coaching practice, but I’m having a really hard time with it.
C Life coaching
T I just don’t believe I can make as much money as I’d like as a life coach
F Discouraged, defeated, trapped
A I guess I do nothing, really. I do a lot of thinking and rumination and hating on other people who are going for their dreams. I try to find others who are successful, but mostly just end of trying to guess how much money other people make and feel discouraged/confused/less than
R I don’t make as much money as I’d like as a life coach
So yeah, I really know I don’t like this model at all. I can also see that I am feeling this way because I am CHOOSING to believe the thought that I can’t make as much money as I’d like as a life coach.
I want to shift this belief, I really, really, really do. Part of me feels like by doing a thought ladder or whatever that I’m deluding myself into believing that I can do it, and then I’m going to quit and fall on my ass. I guess that’s another thought?
C Thought ladder to change belief about life coaching
T I’m deluding myself
A Spin around in frustration, take no action, ruminate, go on a research loop looking shit up on the internet trying to “find an answer”, which usually leads to me wondering what’s wrong with me.
R I delude myself by looking for answers out there somewhere
I just feel like I want a guarantee that this will work. But yeah, this thought also isn’t helpful.
I just don’t believe that I can make money as a life coach. That is a thought. I’m having the thought that I don’t believe I can make $200K+ as a life coach. I’m feeling defeated and trapped because I’m believing that thought. That thought is optional, even though right now I think it is a fact. I’m going to call into the beliefs call later this week, but I’d love if someone can help me start to challenge this belief.
