Here are the top 3 objections to taking on transformation I get to hear as a coach:

I can’t afford it.

This is probably my favorite objection and the one I hear most often. When I discuss the investment required to start with a potential client this is very often the first thing they put in the way of their transformation…and it’s ok. Totally. I don’t need the money but as a coach, I do get curious. It might actually be a different conversation to have. For example, if it was your dream to own a Bentley and there was one outside, in front of your house, with an $800 price tag, would you find a way to create the $800? Probably! We are too quick to dismiss investing in ourselves.

Choose, Invest, Trust, Transform.

I don’t have the time.

Coming up second is the business of busyness. Life is too full! How could someone possibly take on another thing? Between work, the kids, my partner, therapy, trying to get to the gym, how in the hell is someone supposed to take one more thing on? The answer here is pretty similar to the money objection. Do I value spending my time on it? Most people can carve out an hour a week to focus 100% on themselves. Again, it’s a choice, putting themselves first, before everything else AND it can be uncomfortable.

Choose, Love, Make Time, Transform.

My life is good enough.

Only you can answer that question but consider good enough isn’t good enough. Yes! Yes! A thousand time yes… Yes, you are the expert in your life. If you are 100% satisfied in all areas of your life, I celebrate you! Heck yes! You’re doing it. Let’s get together and revel in your greatness! However, if there’s the slightest thought that there could possibly be more of anything consider that you can have it and there’s something in the way. You’re likely then to be in one of three “in my way” camps. 1. You have convinced yourself that you have achieved everything that you want to in life (ask your heart). 2. Just give up on having what you want. 3. Have the “I should just be grateful for what I have” mindset going on?

Choose, Trust, Dream, Transform.

Whatever the experience of life you are living or want to be living it’s all OK. Embrace it, empower it, and be the best you there is to be. However, if there is something you want but are not experiencing, don’t let yourself get in the way of that experience here too. Life is precious and urgent and you can have it all. All the love, abundance, and success you can imagine.
