When I first met Sam, he was on the verge of giving up and taking a job. He had been struggling for months trying to set up his coaching business. In the past 5 months, Sam had attended a staggering 75 network meetings, written a blog 3 times a week and invested in both online and offline programs for startup coaches. He had followed up on leads, spent money on advertising and engaged his own coach.
Still, Sam hadn’t signed up one coaching client, except for a few friends and they were freebies. His resources were slowly being eaten up and he was starting to get really worried.
Should he start being realistic and quit? Was it time to take a real job? These questions kept him awake at night. But he was passionate about coaching and he knew that if he could just get a few clients to begin with then he would be on his way. But it just wasn’t happening. Sam had spent in excess of $10,000 at this stage and he was pretty reluctant to part with more money when nothing much else had worked.
Sam’s problem is not isolated. Every industry has its share of quitters because they either run out of money or motivation.
In Sam’s case, he was desperately running out of motivation and he felt so discouraged that it was becoming harder to carry on in the vain hope that everything would work out.
Sam’s coach had worked with him on his motivation and mindset for a number of months, but unfortunately Sam still wasn’t able to keep motivated and positive. He actually felt like a loser and although he was ‘doing’ all the right things, he was feeling like it was never going to work.
As most of us know the Law of Attraction is always working. The vibration that Sam was giving out actually repelled potential clients and kept him from achieving the success he tried so hard to find.
Working cognitively is not always very effective when we have blocks to our success because some of them run quite deep and have strong emotional charges on them. Sam had read one of my posts or blogs about Tapping and how it cuts through blocks with little resistance and decided to give it a try.
After one session in which Sam was taught how to apply Energy Psychology to his feelings of failure and the idea of giving up, he started to have a turn around, first in his thinking and second in having a client book his service for a 3 month package. By the end of the 3rd session, Sam was well and truly confident of his business success. He did not of course, have a fully booked program but he radiated the type of confidence necessary to generate the business he needed. He knew that success was around the corner for him. Quitting was not an option. And he continued to upgrade his results with Tapping.
Thank God Sam did not give up 5 minutes before the miracle. My message is to never give up, despite how rough the going might get.
You don’t have to have sessions with a coach to be able to apply Tapping to your life and create better outcomes. My free ebook on this site, The Five Minute Miracle is a good place to start learning about it.
