Overcoming Resistance and Embracing Growth

performance coaching

Have you ever found yourself hiring a fitness coach, a business coach, or a clutter coach, only to resist the work and struggle to make progress?

If you've experienced this frustration, then this blog is for you. It's also relevant if you have difficulty asking for help.

Six months ago, I hired someone to help me with my podcast, but it took me a year to make that decision. The catalyst for my podcasting journey was my interview with Mo Goshiklo Knowska, a Polish business coach based in Ireland, whom I met on Instagram. We instantly clicked, became friends, and she supported me greatly in this endeavor.

As a fitness professional, I understand the challenges we face with time spent scrolling on social media. Sitting hunched over a computer or a desk can take a toll on our well-being. That's why I believe podcasts are an ideal platform for intimate conversations. Through this medium, I can connect with you during your walks, as you prepare for the day, or even while you're cooking or commuting.

In each episode, I aim to share valuable insights and practical tips without overwhelming you. My promise is to spend no more than 30 minutes per week with you, so you can easily incorporate these episodes into your schedule. I want to leave you with something to reflect on, a story to ponder, and a lesson to learn.

When I initially hired someone to assist me with my podcast, I became overwhelmed with the checklist of tasks. Despite loving the conversations and coaching clients in various areas, I resisted the technical aspects. It became clear that I needed additional support.

After sharing my frustrations with friends and reconnecting with Gosha, who I had been interviewed by in January, she generously offered to guide me in creating my podcast. We spent three hours on Zoom, putting my ideas on paper, and setting up the platform. With her assistance, I was able to deliver what I had envisioned.

My goal in this, is not to provide you with all the answers or overwhelm you with information. Instead, I want to empower you to reflect on your actions, to question whether they are beneficial, and to make necessary adjustments. Knowledge alone does not always lead to transformation; it's the application and reflection that make the difference.

I invite you to join me on this journey of reflection and personal growth. There will be no editing in the episodes, allowing you to hear me authentically. I aim to connect with you sincerely, delivering insights with a loving, no-nonsense approach. Your success is important to me, but I'm also aware that we are all continuously learning.

For six months, I struggled with self-blame and resistance. However, I realized that it wasn't about making myself or the person I hired wrong; it was about acknowledging that I needed additional help. By seeking support from Gosha, I found the guidance and accountability I needed to move forward.

I encourage you to email me at [email protected] with any questions or concerns you may have. Let's engage in conversations that matter and impact the lives of more women. Together, we can inspire and empower one another, creating a ripple effect of positive
