Hello friends 👋
Thank you for clicking and opening this email. The fact you've done that tells me something about you.
After all, this is a coaching newsletter. By definition it is about change, improvement and growth.
All of those things are great. But where does growth happen?
Is growth contained within these words? Is it sent to you from your coach? Is there a font of wisdom from which you can drink?
The truth is that all I can give or say to you are the seeds of ideas. But seeds can't germinate in infertile ground. And ideas are useless unless you are ready to hear them.
Because all growth comes from (and happens in) you.
Have confidence that you are the source of the improvement you seek. You are the agent of the change you want. You already have everything you need, except for the tiniest seed of an idea.
And so, don't believe anyone who says you can follow these three steps to change your life, or anything of the sort. Don't believe gurus. Don't think that coaches have the answers to anything.
Because, in truth, the one thing that good coaches do have is good questions. Questions that help you to find your own truth, your own growth and your own improvement.
For example, on my website you can find a bold claim. You can download "Ten Questions That Will Change Your Life".
Should you believe that? Well, let me tell you a secret, it's not the questions, but the answers that will change your life.
And the answers are inside you.
If you appreciate The Coach's Couch, the best way to show that is to share it with someone. If you do that this week, I have a special offer for you.
All you have to do is forward this email to someone and copy email@example.com.
Or, share it on twitter and copy @realstephenlock.
Or, share it on LinkedIn and copy me Stephen-Mortimer-Lock.
If you do that, I'll send you free access to a recorded coaching session that you can use at anytime.
Have a great week, Stephen
