When Personal Coaching Turns Weird

When Personal Coaching Turns Weird

The new year always brings renewed interest in bettering ourselves in a variety of ways from physical well being to improving our personal life and even upping our game in the business world. In the past decade there has been an explosion of tremendous proportions in the world of business, work and life coaching and motivation. It seems like every time I turn around I am confronted with a new Coach, Mentor or dare I say it...Guru? So many ways to better yourself with a NEW "proven" plan of action! Often included with many these programs is the ability to have your adviser also hold you to task and act as a 3rd Grade Teacher, no, scratch that...THE person who will hold you accountable for your actions. If need be, I assume that they will also call you on your BS if you do not stay on track and of course "coach" you on ways to get the job done as well as inspire, motivate or even go as far as "Amp You Up" about your occupation and goals whatever they may be!

Now let me say that I have no problem seeking assistance from legitimate, professional sources. When I first entered real estate, my broker employed a professional trainer to give me one on one instruction on a wide range of subjects that I still utilize 20 years later. When I ran my first marathons, I turned to people at my local running store here in Austin, RunTex to help me train for and actually finish the races with causing any permanent physical or mental harm to myself. With that in mind I try to maintain an open outlook toward any new ideas or programs that might help me improve my own business and/or personal life. I am pretty much open and will listen to any suggestions most of the time. The great thing about all this is that in this day and age, there is truly someone for every personality and lifestyle. Keeping that in mind, I recently came across this video by a real estate coach posted on YouTube for what I guess must be an ad for his services and as a motivational message to his followers. Presented here in its entireity and without comment.

Again, the video is presented without critique and I enjoyed the clip in my own particular way because as just about everyone knows, in Austin we like to keep it weird.
