Hold on to your hats, because this conversation is a doozy.  It’s a concept that took me many years to learn, and honestly, I still have to remind myself from time to time of it. 

Have you ever spent time stressing over clients who don’t get results or don’t progress?  

Or have you invested a time of time, energy and effort in trying to get someone to change?

If so, this episode is for you. 

As awesome as you are, you can’t make someone do something they don’t want to do.  You can’t make a client change – they have to want it for themselves.

Meaning, you are not responsible for whether they achieve their results or not. 

Your responsibility is to them – that is, your responsibility is to support, guide, teach, provide appropriate information and create space for them to change.  You’re responsible for coaching, questioning and nudging them in the right direction.

That’s it.

It’s then up to them to take all of that and apply it.

This is what personal responsibility is, and something you want to teach your client.

If this all sounds scary, or you’re unsure as to how you go about it, then get this into your earholes stat.
