The other week I ventured out of the same relatively small radius of locations I’ve been to over the last 15 months.

I had a day in Newcastle and a day in Liverpool.

Coincidentally sequential days for two coaching programmes that I’m part of.

One for all areas of life, one specific to running a fitness business.

People are sometimes surprised that I’m in such programmes.

But, as I’ve said before, beware the coach who doesn’t haven’t a coach.


A – Every single aspect of their life is consistently perfect, or

B – They don’t believe in coaching as much as they tell you. They’re happy to take your money to coach you on something you’d like to get better results at, but aren’t willing to do the same themselves.

I’ll give you a clue – it’s B.

Anyway, I’ve got some insights for you from being in the programmes I’m in.

(Another advantage for me – the coach who has no experience of being in a coached programme surely has less understanding of their client experience?)

7 insights actually.

Enough, happily, for one each day of this week.

So, here’s the first:

*** It’s easier to go all quiet and lone wolf ***

I’ve been there.

I get it.

We tell ourselves “I know what I need to do, I just need to do it”.

And then don’t.

At least not enough.

We disengage from the group somewhat.

Stop setting goals and intentions (RISE Plan innit?).

Stop doing just the basics (booking in for sessions).

Stop interacting and engaging in the group.

Tell ourselves that we’ll “get back to it next week”.

It’s easier that way.

I know from experience.

I also know I regret it every single time I do it.

I know the lone wolf always starves.

I know when I stay engaged everything else comes more easily.

I know that coaching is a two way process.

I can’t just sit at home and expect someone to come and save me.

I have to ask for help where it’s needed / would be beneficial.

Swallow my pride.

For the benefit it will bring.

To me and all those around me.

Knowing that and not asking for help because I’m too proud is actually selfish.

Doing less well at the things that are important to me because my ego gets a little bruised by reaching out.

I get it.

I’ve done it many times.

We all do.

The quicker we can realise and re-engage though, the better for everyone.

Much love,
