Day in and day out my ads get bombarded with negative comments about coaching I get tired of people commenting negative things. how all coaches just want to make money etc Coaching is a scam etc Making money is not why I decided to become a coach.

Money is a by-product of being an amazing coach. Money is a by-product of being able to create amazing transformations with clients The truth is most coaches/consultants are just not that good at the skill of coaching
I struggled with the term spirituality for a long time. And I still do sometimes. Depending on who I talk to. If I perceive that the person is associating weird things and dogmatic concepts with this term, then I don't feel comfortable with calling myself spiritual. I actually would never just tell anyone that "I am a spiritual person". But if they ask me if I'd call myself spiritual, then I'd probably say yes and for sure elaborate on it. I would love to see some comments first before adding in my own answers tomorrow to keep the space open for anything that comes in from you :) EDIT: My statement Thank you for all your engagement - I am glad to see an interesting and stimulating exchange in the comments! DISCLAIMER: This is NOT the absolute truth - only my opinion/perception and I don't want anyone to think they have to believe me. Actually I'd love a challenge if sth does not make sense to you. And also I am sharing with you now some concepts/ideas that I am still researching on - so no guarantee. So about my own life, I have a few key-points what spirituality is for me/how I live it: 1. Lived spirituality is a very personal thing and it is very much connected to the way I feel about things/how present I am in the moment of doing/being. 2. The perception of the inner world is connected to the perception of the outer world. This can go from 'I am sad and anxious and I only see things that threaten me and make me sad" to 'I feel a positive emotion and at the same instance the sun is coming out from behind the clouds". 3. Thus: The events of my own life (thoughts, situations, perceptions, interpretations etc.) are directly correlating with my current state (current energetic frequency if you will). 4. The nervous system has a lot to do with my current frequency. Energy is higher, when the nervous system is activated more. The difference between life-affirming activation and destructive activation lies in the perceived level of safety within the situation. (this perception can be very distorted due to various reasons-> see 1.) Safe activation in motion = play/engagement. Unsafe activation in motion = fight/flight. Unsafe activation with no way out (thus not in motion) = freeze. (edit: this is put very black/white. In my view it's a spectrum between safety/unsafety.) 5. Everything is energy in various states of denseness and activity. Matter (I am still trying to really grasp this idea but am sure it is true), thoughts, emotions, sounds, movement. 6. Sound and Movement are energy in motion. 7. (I will continue later, I need a break, this is intense writing haha)
@Silja Mattmann I am a firm believer and, most importantly, a child of God. In my heart, I hold the conviction that the divine resides within me, guiding my steps and illuminating my path. Through the teachings and grace bestowed upon me, I've learned the profound art of trust—trust in God at all times, regardless of the circumstances that life unfolds. It's a lesson that extends beyond mere belief; it's a daily practice, a conscious choice to surrender to a higher power. This trust isn't a passive surrender; rather, it's an empowering acknowledgment that, even in the face of challenges, I am cradled in the arms of divine wisdom. It's a trust that propels me forward, infusing every aspect of my life with resilience, hope, and a sense of purpose. In my journey, I find solace and strength in prayer and reflection, allowing me to commune with the divine presence within. This spiritual connection is not confined to a specific time or place; it permeates every moment, offering guidance, comfort, and an unwavering assurance that I am never alone. As I navigate the complexities of life, my spirituality is not a separate entity—it is woven into the fabric of my being, shaping my perspectives, influencing my decisions, and fostering a sense of gratitude for the countless blessings that grace my path.
@Silja Mattmann So, when we talk about "communing with the divine presence within," it's like diving into a deep connection or spiritual interaction. It's about engaging with something bigger than ourselves, whether we see it as a higher, sacred force based on our personal beliefs. The "within" part? That means it's an internalized experience. We're saying that the divine presence isn't external; it's right there within each of us. It's all about tapping into that inner spiritual connection. Think about practices like meditation, prayer, or mindfulness – they're ways we seek a profound connection with our spiritual core or whatever higher power resonates with each of us individually. Hope this help…
How would you as a coach/coach-to-be coach a client through a negative mindset/thinking pattern? Being new here I obviously need likes, but I am genuinely curious as to different opinions on the different topics. I love learning
Here’s a thought that just occurred to me. Tony Robbins talks about the different human needs - one being the need for significance. While I know that most of us coaches become coaches because we want to serve but is there a level of significance that gets created for us in the process of helping others? 🤔🧐 What do you think?
@Elena Zanfei @Terri Wilson I've been mulling over our discussion on significance in the coaching journey, and I can't help but share my personal take on it. When I reflect on my own experiences, the true joy in coaching stems from witnessing the growth and success of those I work with. It's this shared journey towards milestones that seems to naturally bring about a sense of significance. It's like the significance is not something I actively seek for myself, but rather, it emerges as a byproduct of our collaborative efforts and the victories we achieve together. The magic happens in that space where coach and client come together, work through challenges, and celebrate successes – big or small. Now, I'm curious about your perspectives. How do you navigate the delicate balance between seeking and accepting significance in your coaching journey?
My fulfillment comes from witnessing growth and success. It's not about seeking significance but embracing it as a natural outcome of our efforts. How do you navigate this balance? Share your thoughts!
If you have something that you feel like you need to remind yourself of everyday, then what is it and what do you do to remind yourself about it? For example ''I feel good enough'', ''I am a great coach'', ''I know I am on the right path'', ''I am loved by my partner'' what do you do?
I reminded myself each day with. " I can do all things through christ that strengthens me. and since I join COA I added 'Everyday and in every way am developing incredibly coping skills" with have helped immensely .Thanks for that question Soren….

I HAD A HUGE VICTORY TODAY! I was paticipating in a workshop for coaches here in Denmark, and it got recorded, and there was around 100-120 paticipating and besides that it's going to be send out to over 2000+ coaches! AND I SHARED MY KNOWLEGDE AS A ROOKIE, and people loved it, the hosts loved the knowlegde and the things I contributed with, SO MUCH that I have a meeting with them on Monday 10:30 my time, to eventually get to be a part of their team behind there success, and that gives me access to all the tools that they provide so that I can scale my business! I needed to share this, because I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF🔥
@Søren Stausholm Absolutely amazing, congratulations on your incredible achievement! Sharing your knowledge as a rookie and receiving such a positive response is a testament to your expertise and the impact you're making. Being invited for a meeting to potentially join their team is a tremendous recognition of your talents. You have every reason to be immensely proud of yourself! 🎉✨ I'm curious, how does it feel to have this opportunity to speak on stage and share your insights with such a wide audience? Your journey is truly inspiring! 🌟
@Søren Stausholm absolutely ! I’ve witnessed a remarkable transformation in you over the past weeks, Your courage and determination shine through, and it's truly inspiring. Embracing opportunities and stepping out of your comfort zone have clearly brought out the best in you. Keep shining!
I resonate with this deeply because I'm going through a similar experience right now. It's a challenging journey, but my conviction in pursuing what feels like my true calling is unwavering, even if it means navigating it without the person I care about. It's tough when someone close isn't on the same page, but prioritizing our own growth and purpose is crucial. I'm learning that sometimes people can't join us on this path, and that's okay. I'm focusing on my vision and sending support to each one of you dealing with a similar situation. Here's to our individual journeys and growth, no matter the obstacles.
I love @Ed J C Smith’s distinction of “The Sacred 4”- that our lives are comprised of these simple 4 accounts (Being, Energy, Love, and Impact) and our task as human beings is to simply continuously work on these 4 accounts so that we progress, not regress. Simple, but not easy- which is why EVERYONE can benefit from coaching- to help us uncover the blindspots that may be unconsciously holding us back from the life of joy, purpose and fulfillment we all desire. 🙏💜
@Joe Lander I resonate deeply with the idea that our task is to continually nurture these sacred accounts. My question to you is 1: what areas of your life do you feel coaching could provide valuable insights or uncover blind spots? 2: How might investing in coaching contribute to your progress in Being, Love, Energy, and Impact? 3:How do you currently nurture and invest in your own sense of being?
What is the one thing that if you get it from this investment will make this the best investment in your future? If I learn and develop the skill to change my mindset and break from the emotional trauma's limiting my life, it will not only change my life completely but I know then that I'll be able to help my client's transform their lives. That gift that I can share not only with clients but with friends and family would make this the best investment ever.
@Marie Miranda I resonate deeply with your perspective. The transformative power of developing the skill to change our mindset and break free from emotional traumas is profound. It's not just an investment in ourselves; it's a gift we can share with clients, friends, and family, creating a positive ripple effect. Here's to the journey of personal growth that extends far beyond ourselves. Looking forward to the collective growth ahead!
My one regret that washed over me when I started learning this course is that I wish I would have known this BEFORE being a parent and before my husband left. Raising 4 young kids alone who rapidly became teenagers without this training or anything similar was tough. I could have helped my kids a lot more overcome négative émotions. Has anyone thought of developing a course for parents of tween/teens? I wonder how much healthier kids would be if they were raised by parents who were equipped with tools to question their teens... and help them effectively deal with their negative emotions. Of course, you would need to run everything by Ed JC Smith before proceeding.... What do you think? @Ed JC Smith
@Karen Christine Sengupta , your thoughts really struck a chord with me. Parenting is no doubt a tough journey, and your idea of providing parents with tools to navigate their teens' emotions is truly impactful. Your experiences are a testament to your strength, and they can be a valuable part of your program—your personal testimony adds authenticity and depth. It's inspiring how you're turning your journey into a powerful resource for others.
