I have a friend who is an instructor for the Navy Seals. He takes people through BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training). BUDS is a grueling eight week training course meant to test you to your absolute limits. They are trying to break you down, to see what you are made of inside. Each week, he and the other instructors make bets on who will make it, and who will not. What he told me might surprise you. You could have one person who is a perfect physical specimen but he is the first one to drop out. Meanwhile, you have another person that no one paid any attention to, and she has the most success! Why? Because you never know what is inside of a person, inside their heart, how bad they truly want it just by looking at them! The ones that are the true soldiers, the true warriors, they are the ones that make it all the way through – but you can’t tell by simply interviewing them.
Beachbody Coaching is the same way. I can’t predict who will be successful in this business. We have literally had celebrities sign up as coaches and never put their heart into it. Then, we have people who never in a million years thought they would command a six figure salary, and that is exactly what they have done. These are the people who really want it.
The 4 Qualities that Every Successful Beachbody Coach has
If you can answer yes to all four of these attributes, and you follow through, you will have huge success in this Beachbody business!
- Inspiration or motivation
You must have either inspiration or motivation to become a successful Beachbody coach. Let me define the two terms as it applies here. Motivation is your ability to get yourself to do something when no one else is watching. You are in business alone. Yes, you may have people around you to motivate you, inspire you, and lift you up, but when it really comes down to it, you must be willing to do work when no one is watching. This is not a job where you report to a supervisor, you have to be self-motivated. Everyone who is successful in this business is either self-motivated or they have some sort of inspiration that leads them forward. They are inspired to change their lives, and there is something deep inside that keeps on pushing ahead. In the process, they are inspiring and helping others succeed. Here is the deal with this business – you don’t have to be the person with the highest IQ, the graduate from Harvard with a PhD, you need to be the person whom others look up to. No matter where you are in your life, there are people who will be touched by what you do, and that is simply by living an inspirational life. Beachbody coaches inspire people.
- Extreme self-confidence
Many people think they have to have this confidence right away. Absolutely not. Self-confidence comes from doing the things that make you uncomfortable and afraid. You reach success in this business when you pursue something outside of your comfort zone and you persevere through it. Gradually you experience less and less uneasiness as you repeat the process. Your self-confidence begins to grow and your self-esteem improves; through practice, this eventually this leads to an incredible amount of self-esteem and self-confidence!
- A can do attitude
This is real simple. A successful Beachbody coach has a can do attitude. Maybe your goal is to lose 10 pounds. Are you saying to yourself, “I am going to lose 10 pounds” or are you saying “I don’t think I could ever lose 10 pounds?” Do you see the glass as half full or half empty? The successful Beachbody coach utilizes positive words and affirmations.
- Have a transformation
This attributes carries a lot less weight but is still important. Most Beachbody coaches, but not all, have experienced a transformation. They have gone through our products, drank Shakeology every day, and have had noticeable results. These coaches share their results with a before and after picture. This one piece right here gives you credibility. Your transformation does not have to be final, you can be anywhere along your journey. Your transformation is a work in progress!
If you want to be successful in this business the “how to” will reveal itself as you continue to push ahead and keep doing the work!
You are inspirational.
You have motivation, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
You have a good attitude.
You are somewhere along your transformation journey.
You are going to have amazing results in this business!
