“YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!”
(if you don’t know what I’m referencing, you can watch a clip HERE)
Anyway, this famous movie line has been on my mind recently because, if I’m honest, I’ve felt like saying it a few times myself lately!!
I’ve recently had a few experiences with some coaching clients that have ended up with me sharing the truth, and then not hearing back from them….
Nothing. No reply. Crickets.
These conversations both happened via text, and perhaps they would’ve been better had via phone or in person….but it had been the method of communication all along, and it was what we had to work with.
When it came time for me to call each of these folks out, share the truth & give them a bit of a fire under their A$$ to get outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves, they went silent.
As a Coach, my clients choose to work with me because they want to feel better, and be happier with their body and overall life.
It is my job to provide my clients with support, feedback, perspective, and most importantly, the truth.
So I feel a great responsibility to tell them what they need to hear….
After all, if I were hiring a coach to help me level up and reach my goals, I wouldn’t want them to feed me some bull$#it that made me feel better but didn’t challenge me to change.
That just seems to me like a waste of everyone’s time, money, and energy.
Perhaps some coaches operate like that, but I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night knowing that I wasn’t truly doing everything I could to help someone.
Even if that includes the tough stuff.
So I wonder what was going on for each of those people that went radio silent after I shared the truth with each of them?
Perhaps they didn’t want to hear it.
Perhaps they thought Coaching would be a different experience.
Perhaps they couldn’t handle the truth.
Whatever the case may be, I plan on staying fully committed to both of them.
Because I know that facing the truth - as hard as it is - and working through it is always the key to transformation.
