Does anyone count their blessings anymore? I sure do. But I also know that it is hard on a bad day, but even on the worst day, there are many things to be thankful for. One of the blessings that I don’t have is a coach to give me ideas. The reason that I haven’t sent out a newsletter in a few weeks is because I am not blessed like most if not all of the rest of you are to have a job other than being a Beachbody Coach. I went from having a business and being a coach to just being a coach and I have to hustle every day to succeed in this business.
I am constantly seeking out advice to be the best coach that I can be so that you can be the best coach that you can be. Your success has been entrusted to me and that is a huge responsibility. When Carl Daikeler had the audacious idea of entrusting the success of his company to the people who were benefitting from buying and using his products, it was an incredible leap of faith. His reputation and the reputation of the company has been placed in our hands because Beachbody is giving us their customers to guide, motivate and inspire.
Carl and Kevin and Pete, to name just a very few, inspire me and I need you to hear and feel my passion and enthusiasm. But I can’t just give you ideas and “rah rah” about this business. I also need some time to implement my ideas and the ideas that I have been able to glean from Kevin or Doug and test them and accept or reject them before I blindly pass them on to you. You certainly don’t need to waste your time on the trial and error that I have to use.
And so it is that I was lucky enough to get an idea from Brian, via Monica, about using MeetUps.com to schedule home presentations. He told me in an email that I read early last Sunday morning and within hours, I had signed up and scheduled a presentation which happened this past Sunday evening – http://weightloss.meetup.com/830/.
Now before you start thinking that I want you to spend $12.00 a month to join MeetUps.com, that is not the point. The point is that I have now experienced the power of home presentations and realize why all of the top coaches use them so successfully. Those top coaches grasped very early on how lucky they were to be a part of Beachbody and what the responsibilities and rewards are for being entrusted with helping other people. Carl and Kevin and the rest of the Beachbody management team are helping us to help other people to succeed. Once you fully grasp that, you can start looking people in the eye and telling them about what we do and telling them how you count being a Beachbody Coach as one of your many blessings.
