DAY 9: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

KICKSTART DAY 9: Personal Development {Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable}

 

Quote of the Day: “The important question to ask yourself isn’t ‘What am I getting?’ The important question is ‘What am I becoming?’” ––Jim Rohn

 

As an owner of a Team Beachbody coaching business, you’ll quickly discover the importance of personal development. As you improve yourself, your ability to improve your business also increases.

 

Getting comfortable being uncomfortable will help you be more successful as a Coach. Anytime you learn something new, like the skills of becoming a successful Coach, you’ll often find yourself feeling uncomfortable. That’s okay, it means you’re pushing yourself to try new things!

 

Personal development helps you focus on the things in your life you CAN CONTROL to make a difference in your life and in your business. This small change in how you view the world can make a HUGE difference. It will help you have the belief and confidence to set courageous goals and have a big vision for yourself and what you can achieve.

 

⚠️⚠️Remember, when you do things others aren’t willing to do, you get the results that others can’t have. So, don’t skip your personal development ⚠️⚠️

 

With time and experience you’ll become more proficient at coaching AND be more comfortable, but for now, give yourself permission to be uncomfortable and be learning through Personal Development and the application of what you're learning.

 

If you’re struggling to get outside your comfort zone, here are some suggestions...

 

  • Be accountable to someone: When you know someone else is going to be checking in on you, it's harder to retreat to your comfort zone. Give someone permission to hold you accountable.

 

  • Play to your strengths: Don’t focus on your weaknesses, instead identify the things you do well and structure your actions to leverage those strengths. When you play to your strengths, it’s easier to do new things because you’re more confident.

 

  • Make your goal matter to you: You have to know that the actions that are outside your comfort zone have a purpose and will help you get to where you’re trying to go.

 

  • Increase your conviction: When you believe in something, when it matters to you, it is easier to go outside your comfort zone. Make it purposeful to you and you’ll make it easier to do.

 

  • Practice and role-play: There is a reason professional athletes practice more than they play—it builds confidence and skills. If you’re struggling to get outside your comfort zone, get with another Coach and role-play situations and practice over and again and it will make it much more natural for you when “game timeˮ comes!

 

  • Right now, focus on disciplining yourself to do your daily coaching disciplines so they become habits for you. That is the goal! Watch a Coach Success Story video to see how other successful Coaches step out of their comfort zones and achieved their goals.

 

  • Spend at least 10 minutes a day on personal development.

 

{ I personally like to listen to mine as audio books with the hard copy nearby to take notes in and dog ear. It's the first thing I turn on when I head into the bathroom to brush my teeth and get ready. I also listen cooking, doing dishes, folding laundry, driving, or being stuck in traffic. You'd be surprised how much time in your day you can listen to something that can actually HELP you grow. }
