Well, here we are at the end of that coaching call. However, not the end of my coaching; Remember, my coaching will never end. I will continue to get a coach and keep a coach as I grow in my skills and abilities. What have I learned? That no matter what at the end of the day your success depends on Y-O-U. The only person responsible for my success is Yourself. So over the weekend I have been working on me non-stop. Reading and writing to get to the core of what is going on with me. I’ve come up with a sheet of paper that I wrote that I say every morning to get in the habit of taking care of my business. One thing is for sure – If You want your business to pay you like a business you have to treat it like a business.
So I will continue to get coaching and more importantly continue to work on myself and take 100% responsibility for my success or failure.
Are you taking 100% responsibility for your Success or Failure?

Well, my coach sent me an email and I read it and I agreed with what he said. What did he say?
“Some people make it to their 1 on 1 call and others miss their time. Whether you made your call time or not isn’t really the issue. The best way to get your business on track is to change.”
And after I read that I said, “He is right”. It’s not about him keeping the schedule, it’s about me knowing that I need to make changes; create habits that will get me where I want to go. At the end of the day no matter what it’s on me to change – to create the habits that will build myself and build my business.
So there. That’s the end of that story. Now, am I making the changes? I can absolutely say yes I am. How did I accomplish that? Well, I did a few things. The first thing I did was go back to the beginning when I first worked with Kadena Tate of to help me learn about marketing – real marketing and more importantly to discover my top 5 strengths. She suggested that I purchase the book strengthsfinder 2.0 by Tom Rath discovered my top 5 strengths and re-read what it said about me and I was so surprised that it was dead on. My top 5 strengths are 1)Intellection 2)Input 3)Positivity 4)Learner 5)Adaptability which means that I love to think, I collect information, I stay Positive, I love to learn and I go with the flow. How awesome is that? When you begin your journey from a place of power and a great foundation such as knowing your 5 strengths, you cannot go wrong. I will continue to get coaching because without it you won’t reach your top. Remember, Tiger Woods has a coach so why wouldn’t you?
I’ll keep you posted on my progress and what habits I create.

Well, here’s what happened. I told you that I was told to do something that I didn’t do and I missed my call and then attempted to reconnect with my coach by sending him a message through the site that I paid for and I thought he would call or send me an email but I haven’t heard anything. I am still due two more coaching calls and I have not heard from my coach.
So the lesson here is before you pay your money for any type of coaching (I specifically wanted one-on-one) you should first cover the rules if any such as if you miss a scheduled call do you then lose access to the coach that you paid for and if no such rules were established before the start of the coaching should you then expect to be able to get in touch with your coach. Also, make sure you know how to get in touch with your coach if you have any questions. Is there a specific email address to use or a phone number you are to call.
Well, that’s what happened and I’m frustrated but 100% responsible for the outcome. Until next time.

Well to be perfectly honest it is not. I was told to do something by my coach and I had every enthusiastic intention of following through but it didn’t happen. What did happen? Well, that’s a good question. After I was given instruction I had a question, sent an email to my coach and didn’t get an answer back. Since I didn’t get a response, I didn’t know what to do so I didn’t do anything. Is that anybody’s fault? No. Is it my responsibility? Absolutely. No excuses here I’m just telling you what happened. Now I have to reconnect with my coach and I’ll keep you posted. This is a great learning experience because I’m learning even more about myself.
