How to Get Help
Physician Heal Thyself?
As health coaches, we often think we can “fix” ourselves and we can’t. We often need to go outside of ourselves to be followers instead of feeling the need to be the example setter.
Whether it’s weight loss, stress, money, aging, energy, illness, overwhelm, well, you see where I’m going. We all have a lot to bear and no one is alone in this. It’s hard to be perfect at everything and sometimes you just have to give up the notion of perfect and accept the notion of “progress”. Slow, gradual, steady, progress.
Kora (13) went to a leadership camp last week. She was so excited upon her return. Everyone got to be themselves, without judgment and without fear. They grew and learned because no one was trying to teach the other or outdo the other. They acknowledged that they didn’t have to be 100% together and accepted help from each other.
If you’re used to being the healer, you feel the need to set an example and often, aren’t very open for fear they see you aren’t quite as perfect as you present yourself to be. It’s hard to be in that position and it helps to have someone who can help you. We are better together.

- Health Coaches – I know, I’m biased, but health coaches can be life savers, even for health coaches. If you can have a coach who inspires you to get off the sugar, caffeine or dairy it can be instrumental in your weight, gut or energy. If you have a coach who points out the things you did right and keeps you in the mindset to continue on with your fitness regimen, your meditation, or your daily visits to the gym, it can truly alter your life. It can keep you off the prescription medicines, save you medical bills, inspire your family and friends and it can literally add time to your life.

People love to help. Just think. Don’t you love it when someone asks you for help? It makes you feel wanted, needed and valued. So don’t be afraid to ask when it’s time.
One of the health coaches in the Inner Circle told the group that she had a small group going through the 12 Day Detox and she didn’t want her person to be alone. It was so heartwarming to see the health coaches offer to jump into her group to participate and then to hear what a difference it made in the group. All she had to do was ask.
Many coaches feel unworthy or shy about coaching and a little practice will go a long way. Get in your groups and trade services. You get help and you give help too – it’s win, win, win.
We all have different gifts and so, so much to share. Share with each other and don’t ever be afraid to ask for help.
