EMERALD PHASE POST 11: Improve Yourself and Increase Your Income

“If you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” –Jim Rohn 


Most of us have been taught to pursue success by focusing on what we want to do, and our tendency is to go directly for those things and the money required to provide for them. What if I told you that this focus was the main reason why most people never reach those goals? Our greatest leverage to achieve our goals in life, and succeed as a Coach, is to focus on improving who we are and who we are becoming.


This is why personal development is a non-negotiable element of successful coaching. 


As world-renowned author Jim Rohn says, “I’ve found that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle.” 


Remember, the G.R.O.W. acronym to get the most out of your personal development by keeping these ideas front and center in your mind.

  • Goal: What are you trying to improve or achieve?

  • Reality: Where are you now? What’s working? What’s holding you back?

  • Opportunities: What are your areas of strength and how can you play to those strengths more?

  • Way forward: How are you going to handle challenges? What are your next steps

Make sure you’re making time for personal development each day! Watch the 8 Secrets of Success video and consider what it means for you as a Coach.
