5 Mistakes I’ve Made As A Health Coach And Successful Woman

"Kat Eden Australia's Female Fat Loss Queen"1. Trying to be, do and have it all

There’s no better way to hinder your body and life transformation than to get caught up in boring clutter and the (non?)-essentials of a busy life. In the book the Power of Less (my favourite productivity tome), author Leo Baubauta suggests clearing away the non-essentials of your life, and it’s a lesson I’ve taken to heart when it comes to what I expect of myself. I’ve found that I am at my happiest (and most productive!) when I focus on just one thing at a time. I don’t even mean day to day, but in general – i.e. work on just one big project in my business at once. I believe it’s a myth that we can really be, do and have it all, and really – who would want to? The fun is in finding the really really cool stuff to focus your energy on, and then getting rid of the rest.

2. Following the rules of nutrition and/or fat loss

I used to follow the ‘rules’ of nutrition and fat loss and I looked like this:

Now I eat like this:

"Paleo Plate"

And I look like this:

Actually, I look leaner than that 🙂 that was taken after 2 weeks over-eating in the US! (More photos next week; I’ve been slack there I know!)

3. Believing that just because something worked before that it will work again

This is one of the worst mistakes I’ve ever made on a personal level, but also professionally. The prime example here is thinking that the ‘old’ rules of fat loss will work. The reality is that 20 years ago it truly WAS easier to be in shape. There was less environmental and food toxicity, more eating at home, more everyday movement, less technology, less processed food, maybe even more sleep and less stress … the list goes on.

If there’s one thing we can rely on when it comes to living our best life and being truly fit and healthy, it’s CHANGE. Getting my head around this idea has allowed me to focus on results rather than day-dreams.

4. Assuming that something that works for me will work for my clients

This is another big no-no for any health coach, and something I was guilty of time and again in my first few years as a trainer. From 2000-2005 I pretty much trained all of my clients like bodybuilders (and – sorry if you were with me back then – put them on tuna and broccoli diets), because that’s what I was doing. And why was I doing it? Because that’s what my coach told me to do based on his eating and training habits! When it comes to health and fat loss, and definitely when it comes to what to eat, one size does not fit all.

These days I assess my clients thoroughly using Biosignature as my key tool, and I structure a personalised program based on that assessment. From there I tweak and tweak and tweak until we get the desired result – there is no assumption in success.

5. Doing what I should do rather than what I’m drawn to do

Ugh. This one gets me again and again. I hear what someone else is doing with their business, their blog, or even with their training and nutrition, and curiosity gets the better of me. I’m like a bird drawn to bright shiny objects … I just can’t keep away. This can definitely have its advantages, but all too often it end in frustration and resentfulness as I grind away at something I never wanted to be doing in the first place and that doesn’t even fit in with my values and my goals.

I’m getting better … these days I regularly journal about what’s important to me, and it helps keep me on track. I try to drown out the ‘noise’ of all the shoulds and coulds 🙂

What are some of the biggest mistakes you’ve made in your quest for a healthier and happier life?

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
