>> Hey there. What did you think of the awesome guest lectures from our visiting teacher Dave Buck? Coach Dave has been a player in the game of coaching for a long time. And he has so much great tried and true wisdom to share. We hope you enjoyed learning from him. In his lecture, on helping your client shift their environment, Coach Dave spoke about how to create a new environment that's aligned with the goals and visions your clients have for themselves. We don't live in a vacuum. We are all influenced by and exist as part of our environment. To overlook this is to overlook a really important part of a person's daily reality. This information doesn't just hold true for your clients, it's also a lesson you can apply to yourself as a coach. In this lecture, we're going to share with you a five-step plan for radically shifting your environment to support your success. What adjustments do you need to make in your environment so that you can be an influential change-maker? This can feel overwhelming at first. So to help guide you through this process, we've created a five-step plan for how to design and master your environment. Ready? Let's get right to it. Number one, select an environment outside of your comfort zone. As Coach Dave explained, your current environment represents your past. If you stick around in the same old environment around the same old people, you're not going to be very successful at creating a shift. So it wouldn't make sense that if you want to be a successful dynamic coach, you need to surround yourself a successful dynamic people. This means being in a place that inspires and encourages you to grow and challenge yourself. It's a place where you walk your talk. We like to refer to this as your optimal coaching environment. This environment will look different from one coach to the next, but for all of us, this place is found outside of our comfort zones. Your comfort zone is where your ego lives. And your ego doesn't want to change. Your ego loves its cozy home in the town of predictability because basically, we're wired for safety. And what's safe is what's predictable. But you're destined for bigger things. And those bigger things are out there in the unknown territory. So as you prepare for more success and enter this next phase of your coaching practice, it's time to start living boldly in your optimal coaching environment. So there are three important questions to be asked. What does your optimal coaching environment look like for you? What does your life look like currently? And what do you have to do to get from point A to point B? Important things to consider as you answer these questions are who are you spending your time with, what types of people would you benefit from spending your time with, where are they and what are they doing, and where are you and what are you doing. Remember, your environment is not just your physical space but also what's in that space. What needs to change to make it more productive, joyful, and inspiring? Sometimes it can be as simple as moving something out of your office that's been distracting you or adding something to it that will help, like a soothing water feature or an inspirational quote. Same thing with who is in your environment. Who are you interacting with on a regular basis? Are these people serving you? Are there certain people or types of people out there who you're not connecting with? How can you integrate them into your life? Pause the lecture here, and grab a pen and a piece of paper. Reflect on these questions and jot down your answers. How'd that go? Use these notes to guide you as you think about building your optimal coaching environment. Number two, connect with your true self. You have limitless potential. Wait, that's really important, so I'm going to repeat that. You have limitless potential. Your true self knows this. Your true self is you at your very core, the essence of who you are. It's that natural genuine you who was born into this world full of love as a blank slate. Your true self is totally capable, and loving, and rooted in goodness. Everyone has a true self that resides within them. The difference is some of us are more connected to it than others. Now you may be wondering why I'm talking about connecting with your true self, something that's internal, when we're talking about changing your environment, something that's external. Here's why, it goes back to that pesky ego. You see, there's your true self and then there's your ego, which is something you're not born with. Your true self is who you are without thought. It's who you were before someone told you who you were or who you should be. Your ego, on the other hand, is self-preserving. It developed over time starting in childhood. Your ego is the collection of stories, excuses, and memories you've picked up and stored away which have come to define how you see yourself, others, and the world around you. It's what gives you a sense of identity and allows you to be an individual. Your ego is self-preserving, so it tends to be over-protective. It sees things through labels and it likes to keep things that feel threatening at a distance. It's why people preserve their own lives whereas an ant would give its life for the colony without even thinking about it because ants have no sense of separation. Ego is resistance. It's negative self-talk, it's anchored in fear and what ifs like, "What if it doesn't work out?" In this course, we'll teach you all about how to identify and discard these messages. But even right now, you can start practicing mindfully paying attention to your thoughts, just by using your awareness and intuition. True self is expansive and moving forward, open to new possibilities. When you have negative thoughts or get a case of the what ifs, remind yourself that this is just your ego speaking. Your true self who wants to see you succeed, it's brave and loving. The more you connect with your true self, the easier it becomes to tell your ego to pipe down, and you'll start moving steadily towards your optimal coaching environment. Number three, don't settle for a mediocre reality. This goes back to that limitless potential of yours. If you're capable of doing anything you set your mind to, this means you're capable of creating any environment you want. So don't settle, dream big. When you start to think about designing your optimal coaching environment, we don't mean list out what's practical and satisfactory. We want you to design and manifest the most thriving, satisfying vision of reality that you can dream up for yourself, and then go out there and get it because you can. So go back to that piece of paper you were just using earlier to write down your thoughts and reread what you wrote. Did you design an optimal coaching environment that really captures you living your fullest, happiest, most successful life? Your list shouldn't come from the attitude of, "It would be nice if..." Rather it should capture the attitude of, "I'm committed to creating this so I can create awesome things in this world." If you didn't reflect and write from this space, pause for a moment and revise your notes to reflect a bigger bolder dream. You're a coach. This means you support people as they go after their dreams. So part of walking your talk is going after your dreams too, whether that means finding an amazing close in the tribe, obtaining total financial freedom, becoming an influential figure in the wellness industry, whatever it is, give yourself permission to fully embrace your vision so you can start to manifest it as a reality through your optimal coaching environment. It can be helpful to ask yourself, "Who do I have to be and how do I have to be in order to get what I want?" If you want to be a successful coach, how do you have to behave in order to attract clients? You have to be confident, prepared, and self-assured, just to name a few qualities. Number four, take a leap of faith. There's a critical component to all of this that you need to get you from your current to your optimal environment. Without it, you won't get very far at all. Do you know what it is? Faith. Now this doesn't need to meet a religion, though it can be if that's how you express your faith, but what this really means at the root of any practice is fostering a connection between your true self and the universe. Are you familiar with the law of attraction? This is the basic concept of like attracts like. In order to find or obtain what you want in this life, you need to manifest it. We're all vibrational beings emanating frequencies. The things we want in life are out there too also vibrating at their own frequency. So shifting your environment is really about getting on the vibrational level of what you want. You're tuning into the frequency of your optimal environment just like adjusting the dial on an old radio. The key to doing this is that you have to really believe it. You're not wishing and hoping for things to come true. It's not magic. You resolute in your faith that the universe is good and abundant and that it will deliver the things you want in life if you attune yourself to them. Now this involves putting in the elbow grease and doing the work, doing whatever it takes to get you these things and the faith of knowing that when you work really hard and visualize the outcome that you will get there. What does your faith look like? Do you have a religious or spiritual practice? Do you talk to God or the universe? Do you feel a connection to nature? There are so many ways to foster this connection between self and the collective universe. We encourage you to take some time to reflect on what resonates with you and what feels right. It doesn't matter how you do it, just find your faith. If this is new or strange to you, it may start as a quiet shaky whisper. Over time, if you make connecting to your faith a daily practice, it will grow, and you'll be amazed to see how life and your perspective start to shift. Before you know it, your environment will start to shift too as you open yourself up to these gifts. Number five, wave goodbye to the haters. As you start to shift your environment and trade in your old one for a bigger, bolder life, many of the people around you may start to express disapproval or judgment. Why does this happen? Simply put, it's because they've built an entire life around their story for why they can't live a life of their dreams. So when your friends and family start getting critical, it's not that they don't want the best for you or that they secretly dislike you, it's that what you're doing is challenging the very foundation of their lives. When you start rocking the boat, it makes people feel uncomfortable and fearful, and so they'll react accordingly. And this often comes disguised as concern or caring advice. Now we're definitely not telling you to sever ties with your loved ones, but if someone or something is bringing bad energy into your life and you can avoid it, try limiting it. Do what you need to do to respectfully put yourself first and cut yourself off from the bad vibes that people throw at your way to bring you back down to size. Other people's fear is toxic. Instead of spending your time trying to change their minds or prove things to them, which will only drain you and kill your bias, focus on changing your environment instead. Surround yourself with positivity. Preoccupy yourself with people who are constantly growing, challenging themselves, and thinking positively. That way, you can get a healthy dose of positivity to shield yourself from the negative vibrations of any toxic people in your life who you can't avoid. Remember, part of making these environmental changes means being willing and ready to let go off the things that aren't serving you. This may include distancing yourself from those who don't support your highest vision for yourself. So to recap, if you want to design the optimal environment to support yourself as a dynamic coach, we suggest you select an environment outside of your comfort zone, connect with your true self, refuse to settle for a mediocre reality, take a leap of faith, and wave goodbye to the haters. By learning to align yourself with the frequency of that which you desire in life and that which is thriving and abundant, you'll find that your current environment no longer serves you and you'll be drawn to bigger and bolder people, places, things, and practices. If you do this for yourself, you'll start making bolder moves in your coaching business, attract more clients, and be better able to help them do this for themselves in their own lives. You have so much potential and we can't wait to see it unfold for you. What stood out for you most in this lecture? Head on over to the Facebook group to join the discussion and let us know.
