I was a little hesitant to write about something so subjective to each person and their experience with their coach. However, I’ve witnessed magical transformations occur in that muscle that lives between my clients’ ears, so I decided to outline some of the mindsets I’ve seen.

The first mindset shift looks something like this:

  1. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing and it probably shouldn’t be 

A new client signs up and they are ecstatic to get started. I don’t blame them. They finally take the plunge, spend a decent amount of money, and are standing at attention ready for their marching orders. Although the willingness to comply is a treat, they are always taken aback when I start the first week off changing just one thing.
