The 3 Reasons EVERYONE needs a Coach!
Hello my friends and welcome!
I’m stopping by to chat with you today about not just the power of coaching, and the effectiveness of coaching – but honestly why my belief is every body needs coaching. If you’re here right now my guess is you have an interest in making your life better.
Here are my TOP THREE reasons why everyone needs a coach:
Number 1: Because you’re HUMAN
Number 2: This challenge called CHOICES
Number 3: To get PERSPECTIVE
Now you might say “Scott I know I need a coach it’s just I don’t know where to find one” and that might be a topic of conversation for another day, because certainly there’s things you want to look for in a coach, there’s things you want to make sure that the coach’s got, and can do, and there’s certainly things you want to avoid as well. We can chat about that if you like – in fact if you maybe ask some questions here on the page and we can have a conversation about what does that look like, and how do I find a great coach, and how do I start, where do I get one, we’re certainly happy to have those conversations
Until then thank you for being here – if you liked this post please like the video, like the page, share the page and post it to your family and friends – and for now I appreciate you, live very deliberately.
Bye for now,

Hello my friends and welcome it’s Scott Harris the founder of Ultimate Coach stopping by to chat with you today about not just the power of coaching, and the effectiveness of coaching – but honestly why my belief is every body needs coaching.
Now you may say “Scott well you’re a coach of course you think that everybody needs coaching” but hear me if you will. You know if you’re watching this video right now my guess is you have an interest in making your life better, if you’re watching this or we’ve met or maybe we’re meeting right now Hi I’m Scott, maybe there’s something in your life you want to improve maybe there’s something you’re looking to move forward on, you’re looking to maybe lose a few pounds or kilograms, maybe you’re looking to maybe make some extra dollars, maybe you’re looking to move towards creating your dream life, your dream business – whatever that happens to be. Maybe there’s something you’re looking to move away from, some pain in your life, or some distraction, or something that’s not quite serving you. Whatever it is that movement forward is gonna require some things, and here’s why I think coaching is so critically important for all of us. So I want to give you my three top reasons – my top three reasons why I think every single person on the planet needs coaching – on the assumption that they want their life to be better. So if want your life to be better you are in the right place! Now if you know anything about my work there’s gonna be some rules to this game and the rules are pretty simple, if you’ve watched video content from me before – and that is you’ve got to take some notes! I’m gonna take some notes – you should too.
So the first of my three reasons why I think every single person needs coaching is because: number one if you’re watching this you’re a human! Now let me explain what that means. My experience of traveling around the world for the last – gosh 25 years teaching, coaching, and speaking has been the following. It kind of looks
like this – I meet people who would do what I call the dance, and here’s what the dance really is. The dance is when you start something but don’t follow through,the dance is when you commit to something but find yourself getting distracted, the dance is when you say you really want to make something happen and
you get off track. And I’m telling you why this dance happens – it happens to all people and here’s what happens. It’s because there’s this conflict going on between your body – and I’m gonna use the word spirit – you can use the word soul, you can use the word essence, you can use the words the child within you, whatever you represent as being that part of you that talks to you. Now here is the dance that goes on my friends, all human beings have a physical body and your physical body is not designed for a success. Now you may say “this is not a very good motivational talk” it’s not meant to be. Your human body, your physical body is designed to survive, and it’ll do whatever it can to get by, and it’s a remarkable instrument! We should be excited about it! I mean think about what you’ve fed it, think about how poorly you’ve treated it, and it still shows up every day! So this dance between your body – which really just wants to be safe and comfortable and certain – and your spirit, which really wants for greatness, it’s your human spirit that wants things to be bigger, and cleverer, and smarter, and kinder. It’s the human spirit that allows the world to get better, faster, and
quicker and this dance between the body and the spirit, this dance between these two things here – I think is the number one reason that everybody needs coaching. If you ignore the need to get coaching what can very often happen is your life can be driven by and ruled by the desires and wants of your body and you start to make safe choices, comfortable choices, easy choices, choices that are actually bad and you know you’re making them, but you still make them! So that’s my first reason why I think everybody needs coaching.
The second reason is because we live in the 21st century and right now the second reason I think we need coaching is because of this challenge called choices. And I say challenge because of this: when I was a kid growing up if you went for ice cream (we didn’t go very often) but if we did there was three flavours – and you know what they are: chocolate, strawberry and…. that’s right Vanilla. But today you may say “Scott I’ve already mastered the dance, I’ve already got my body under control and I’m now making great choices about my spirit, my mission, my purpose, my desire – well that may be true but I’m telling you right now there’s so many choices that you and I have. If you’re watching this right now on a phone, or an iPad, or a computer, or your watch – or some other device – you’ve got lots of choices. You’ve got choices about what to do with your relationships – and that means spouse, children, customers, siblings, chosen family. You’ve got choices about what to do in your business, multiple businesses, one business, online business, traditional business, partnership business, joint venture businesses, your own business – there’s multiple choices around that. You got lots and lots of choices to make around your health. About this program, or that title, this system. You’ve got choices to make around your contribution and how do you want to give back and serve, and what vehicle is that gonna be, you got a contribution, or excuse me you have choices to make around your fun and your adventure, in your travel. Look I’ve never met anybody that doesn’t want to travel more. And so the second reason why I think everybody needs coaching is because of the power of choice, and all choices carry consequences. Even not choosing has a consequence, and so sometimes your coach is gonna be able to help you crystallize, clarify, cut through all the things that are going on for you to say “Great here’s what we need to do, here’s when we need to do it” and then most importantly “Here’s how we’re gonna go do it”. So if you’re looking for that what, and that when, and that how -absolutely that’s gonna be one of the choices your coach is gonna be able to help make you get done now.
Now there are three reasons… I’ve actually got about 20 but I’m giving you my top three today.
And the third reason is because the number one thing that I value in my life – I’m fifty years young and I’m excited about the next 10 years, and the next 20, and 30, and 40 beyond that. The number one thing that you want to be engaging a coach for – the number one thing that you want them to be able to share with you, would give you, is a thing called perspective – and that simply means this. I don’t care how great you are… I don’t care if you’re the world’s best golfer, I don’t care if you’re the world’s best business person, I don’t care if you’re the world’s best mum – whatever you’re doing trust me you cannot see everything that you’re doing, you cannot hear everything you’re doing, you cannot notice everything you’re doing. And the job of your great coach is to see what you don’t see, it’s to hear what you don’t hear, it’s to notice what you don’t notice. So you want to get great coaching my friends because you might be working 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 hours a week on your mission, on your vehicle. You might be putting 40 hours into your business, and 30 hours in your family, and 10 into your Body – I get it you’re proactive, you’re making things happen. But if you have not yet got a coach to help you sort out your choices about what are we doing, when are we doing it, how we doing it. And if you’ve not yet got a coach to help you with perspective – to maybe give you some feedback – maybe just reflect back to you, what they’re hearing, and your belief patterns, your language patterns, what they’re noticing about your behaviour, and your timings and your schedules, what they’re seeing that you’re doing – and also another thing, what you’re not doing. Perspective all day every day! At 50 years of age trust me that’s what you wanna be paying for. Now why do I share this with you? Because of this: Sometimes I hear people say “Well I don’t need coaching I’m already motivated” Listen – the coach’s job is not to motivate you other people might say “Well I don’t need coaching because isn’t that for someone who’s got problems or needs fixing?” Trust me that’s not what coaching is about…. that’s like therapy and counselling. Both of which are useful things if you’re someone that wants a better quality life. If you’re driven by a commitment to improving all facets of your life, your health, your relationships, your business, your contribution, your sense of fun and travel, your mission – I’m letting you know that my experience of having had coaches in my life since I was literally 15 years old – that’s 35 years now is that that’s what you need in your life to help you with the dance between body and spirit, that dance between comfort and what needs to get done.. Or the dance with – gosh of all the things I’ve got to get done what do I get done now the dance of choice, and then thirdly I’m looking for some perspective.
Now you might say “Scott I did all that and I know I need a coach just I don’t know where to find one” and that might be a topic of conversation for another day, because certainly there’s things you want to look for in a coach, there’s things you want to make sure that the coach’s got, and can do, and there’s certainly things you want to avoid as well. We can chat about that if you like – in fact if you maybe ask some questions here on the page and we can have a conversation about what does that look like, and how do I find a great coach, and how do I start, where do I get one, we’re certainly happy to have those conversations but for now it’s the Scott Harris your Ultimate Coach three very, very powerful reasons why you must, must, must have somebody now – this is not your spouse that’s a recipe for disaster, this is not your best friend, this is not your buddy, this is not your colleague from work, they’re all great people to have in your life they’re called peers and peers are amazing things to have. This is not that – this is an expert, someone who’s trained, and skilled – who can literally continually propel you towards the life you desire, it’s Something you want to have. I would suggest you go get yourself a coach.
