Statement

 

 I can be relied upon to be on time for calls and appointments.

 

 This is the right time for me to accept coaching.

 

 I am really willing to do the work and let the coach do the coaching.

 

 I will do the things I say I'll do. If something is difficult for me I will discuss it with my coach so we can figure out how to make it work.

 

 I will give the coach the benefit of the doubt and “try on” new concepts or different ways of doing things.

 

 I will always speak the truth with the coach.

 

 If I feel that I am not getting what I want or need from the coach I will bring this up with the coach as soon as I sense it and demand that I get what I want and need from the relationship.

 

 I am willing to stop or change the self-defeating behaviours which get in the way of my success.

 

 I have adequate funds to pay for the coaching and will not suffer or regret about the fee. I see coaching as a worthwhile investment in my life.

 

 I am someone who can share the credit for my success with the coach.
