(00:00):

Welcome to society. The shift to the movement say you do for truth

(00:09):

Live from Los Angeles. This is Dr. Aaron, Dr. Divinity. We come together each day to know the truth, live on spiritual principle and align with universal law. We also come together in community, in society. The number one spiritual coaching community. We are really committed to enlightenment, empowerment and entrepreneurship. We truly believe that when somebody awakens, they have a gift and message to bring to the world and we are committed with our mission to awaken a billion people globally. And so how we are doing that is we are developing spiritual leaders and coaches. So today I want to talk to you about the top reason spiritual coaches don't succeed. And I want to preface that with knowing there's no such thing as failure. The only way any spiritual coach can fail is if they give up. Okay. I truly believe if you persevere, anyone can succeed in anything if they truly believe it.

(01:00):

Okay. But today I wanna talk to you about the top reasons why I see people not thriving and not really succeeding as spiritual coaches. Okay. Also, before I begin, I just wanna remind people that throughout this podcast, there are many different series. Okay. Uh, there are series on subconscious reprogramming called, uh, live your truth, the truth triangle. There's another 40 series on my book awakening. There is another series I just started, which is universal law. And the 52 distinctions of universal law. This particular, uh, series is on spiritual coaching, the biz of spiritual coaching. So you'll find everything from how to do your social media to, um, to getting your mind right. And, um, working with clients. Okay. So today we are talking about the top reasons spiritual coaches don't succeed. So after working with, um, you know, hundreds of, of different coaches and leaders, uh, I've found some common denominators of things of why I feel people are not succeeding.

(01:57):

And I know for me personally, I have done each and every one of these over the years as well. And so I wanted to break it on down so that you can take a look at your own, you know, success and kind of look at, go and ask yourself, am I falling into some of these core categories? And can I potentially break through some of these things? Okay. Because if you're anything like me, I remember years back being really a disaster I had decided, and I knew that I wanted to rise in being a leader within the spiritual realm. I didn't know how, I didn't know why I didn't have mentors. I, you know, was all over the place. I tried to do everything. I had no framework. I still hadn't completed my own inner work and, and had the discipline of living on principle every single day.

(02:44):

I tried to do it all. <laugh> I had some business skills, but I really hadn't mastered the organization of it. I had issues around being coachable. I had a hard time paying for coaches because I still had money blocks. I didn't follow through you name it. I've done it. I've been there. Okay. So this is coming from a place of compassion, knowing that if I can do it, trust me, you can do it. Okay. So number one reason why spirituals coaches don't succeed is this is the primary reason for everything. Okay. We know in our teaching that everything comes from consciousness. Everything is at a soul level. Uh, whatever our limiting beliefs are, trauma, things like that. So the number one reason why spiritual coaches don't succeed is they haven't done their own inner work. Duh, obviously we know that if you haven't done your inner work, you will find a way to sabotage your work.

(03:36):

You'll find a way to see through the veil and find the excuses and justifications of why it won't work out. You will, you know, have limitations in, in all kinds of areas. So, first of all, if you wanna be a powerful spiritual coach and succeed, you gotta do your inner work. Okay. Period, in a story that doesn't mean taking a couple seminars and reading a couple books. Okay. That means diving deep into your soul in society. We do trauma work. We release the limiting beliefs. We rewrite the story. We take inventory taking back the power. We've handed it over. We really restore the consciousness. Okay. So you can tell if you've done your inner work, or if you haven't done your work, if you are still reactive in life, if you are still sad or feel like you're the effect of something in your past, if you fully don't know the truth of who you are.

(04:27):

Okay. Number two reason why I find spiritual coaches don't succeed is they don't have a powerful framework. Okay. Oftentimes I'll see people and they'll go out and they'll start kind of working with people, but they're kind of all over the place. And, um, quite frankly, they don't get a lot of referrals and, um, they also just don't get the results for their clients. So it's important to have a framework. And I know I've been there as well. You know, you just kind of like wing it with clients and you don't know if you should have three, you know, sessions with the client or you should have 12 or whatever, you're just kind of all over the board. And from a subconscious perspective, your clients are going to smell that, right? They're gonna know something is a little off. They don't feel safe. They don't realize what the process is that they're gonna go through.

(05:14):

If you wanna be a powerful spiritual coach, you've gotta have a framework. So what does that mean exactly? In society? We actually train with a very specific framework of 12 sessions for people that are taking one-on-ones. We also, um, do a framework around business training as well. And a lot of the spiritual coaches actually are able to coach in business as well, because I take 'em through the eight pillars of business and 12 weeks of mastermind. So the point is, is this is, do you have a framework? Because if you're gonna succeed, you've gotta have a plan. You've gotta realize what it is that you're taking your client through and how you're gonna do it. And that is why we teach for our spiritual coaches to first only teach one-on-one with clients and then have a gradient into, um, into developing courses and then membership or events.

(06:08):

Oftentimes I see people that try and do events and it's fine. They might have some success and people come to the events, but this is the deal. People that go to the events are kind of like, yeah, that was cool, but it wasn't quite powerful enough. Okay. And the reason why is cuz you haven't mastered the work, you want to have a powerful framework and how do you develop a powerful framework? You take one on ones and you have a framework and you develop your framework and you master your framework, you embody the session work. And that is the most important thing. So whether you get up on a stage in the future, whether you do a podcast, whether you do a course, whether you do events, you are able to be very powerful and very efficient when you are doing that. Okay. And I know, you know, it's kind of sad because I witnessed people doing it too fast and going out to the other thing and not having it really powerful framework and they can have some success, but it's not gonna be the same level.

(06:59):

Okay. That's just my experience, not the truth, but my experience. Okay. Next is basically people try and do too many things and don't master something. Okay. So they call it being the Jack of everything, the master of none. Right. So it's non gradient. So I did this too. Okay. When I first started, I was, you know, finishing my doctorate. I was working with a few one-on-one big celebrity clients just because I happened to be lucky. It didn't mean I was taking them through a great, um, program. Okay. And, um, and I was doing everything. I, I started my podcast. I was writing my book. I was doing everything and it was a disaster. I mean, I luckily it all came together over time, but I would've been much more efficient and much more successful. If I had taken on one thing gradient done one-on-ones and really mastered that framework.

(07:47):

Then I mastered moving up into the next thing. Then I ended up doing courses. Then I ended up doing membership. Then I ended up doing events. Then I ended up doing podcasts. Okay. The issue is that when I was doing everything, it, nothing was efficient. Nothing actually was really powerful. Okay. So to have success as a spiritual coach, you can do everything. If there's something that you truly feel like doing speaking gigs, and this is something that you, you just have to do, do it, but I don't recommend it. Okay. And I tell my girls that all the time, I don't recommend going too fast. I don't recommend being the Jack of everything and the master of none. I recommend doing a gradient, taking your one on ones, mastering your inner work, mastering the framework, and then rising. What I see also when people try and do too much is burnout.

(08:35):

I see them taking on too big of a team too fast and potentially having financial disaster out of it. So be cautious, know you're in this for the long run. You're not here just for, to become a seven figure coach overnight, like reality is that you need to master. That's the way the gradient teaches us. When we're babies, we don't learn, learn to run first. We learn how to crawl and then we, you know, stand up and then we walk and then we, whatever, okay. There is a reason for this. It's the way that we are. It's the way we learn. And if you wanna have success, it's better. It's like learning, you know, math you started with with addition, subtraction, and then you moved up to the next thing. If you all of a sudden moved up to, you know, decimal points and um, and high equations in math, you'd be completely confused.

(09:23):

Okay. You've gotta go back down to the basics, learn the basic principles and then move up. Same thing. Okay. Next is the next reason why I witness spiritual coaches not succeeding is they basically try and figure out their niche too early. This is very common. You guys, well, I don't know what I should do. Should I just teach business? Should I just work with people around, you know, soul-based businesses and, and do branding, should I, you know, do one-on-ones and deal with, um, subconscious work? Well, I dealt with co-dependency. Should I do some addiction work too? This is the deal. You don't have to figure out your niche. Okay. It is. It's another self sabotage that the, the way that it works is giving of service fully giving value to whoever's in front of you. And then as you learn what works and flows, then you begin to niche it down.

(10:15):

It's kind of like, I use the metaphor of dating. Okay. Yes. You can get very clear of who you, you know, want to be with. I guess it's a possibility, but the reality is that most people need to date around. They need to figure out what do they like, what don't they like? You know, if you know exactly what you want, great. But majority people don't, you need to date around and figure out what do I like? What don't I like, what works for me? You know, do I like somebody that is a morning person? Do I, you know, does it work for me to have somebody that works, you know, and is a works all the time, their mission base, do I like somebody that is, um, has what principles you need to start figuring out all of it and just trying out the different clients and giving your service everywhere.

(10:56):

The universe will reflect back to you what your niche is. For example, I did used to work with huge celebrities and CEOs and all kinds of different people. Okay. Single moms, everything. And what I found over time is that what mattered to me and what my core values are, is I wanted to only work with people that were doing their inner work, with the motivation, to be able to eventually give back and make a difference in the world and take this work out themselves. So over time, I wasn't as interested in working with this celebrity addict. Okay. Because primarily not all of them, but some were really just doing it because they were trying to get out of issues with the law, get outta issues with our partners or spouses, their managers. And they were just trying to fix themselves so that they could, you know, not lose everything to their life.

(11:51):

Right. So for me, it took a while to figure out what exactly and maybe, you know, exactly, and that's fine. But what I have found again is majority of people, like if, if you know what you want and you know, the client and it flows awesome, but most people are, they try and figure out their niche and they're like, it's actually an excuse for them moving forward. Okay. Do you get that distinction? I've tried to niche it too fast is having you stopped blocked and not flowing. Then get over it. Don't try and figure out your niche right now, flow and giving of service flow and giving of value, get the testimonials and, um, and develop your ability to actually have an impactful transformation for people. Okay. If you, you know, if you know, great. Okay. So next is what I noticed for people. Why they're not having success is that they have no business or entrepreneur skills.

(12:46):

You guys do know that the difference between a hobby, cuz some people like to do spiritual coaching and they just wanna do a hobby, do it as a hobby. You can read people's Oracle cards and give them readings and do all that stuff. Okay. But if you wanna be a professional, you have to understand that there is, you know, professional actually charges money. Okay. So professional has to understand business and entrepreneurial skills. And there are, we teach eight pillars of business. It's very specific. We teach 12 weeks of mastermind. Business skills are business skills. It doesn't matter if you are a solo entrepreneur or a big startup company, the basics of business are the same. Okay? So you've gotta master those things. And a lot of people I've noticed that one, they either just don't wanna do into the business stuff and they, they, you know, just wanna do the coaching.

(13:38):

That's great. But with the coaching, if you wanna make money at it, you've gotta understand marketing. You've gotta understand sales. You've gotta understand organization. You've gotta understand your finances. You've gotta understand all the stuff. Okay. And it's a lot. This is the truth. Okay. This is not the truth, but entrepreneurship is, is very complex. Okay. I'm not gonna say it's hard because it's only as hard as you perceive it to be, but it is complex. Okay. There's a lot of moving parts in entrepreneurship and business skills and it may not be for everyone. So this is my recommendation for spiritual coaches who wanna succeed. You either need to get real and understand that it's very complex and you're willing to take that all on or, and you are willing to get the right partners to rise together. Okay. To, to be able to do all of the complexities of your business and entrepreneurship.

(14:28):

You know, oftentimes we got very organized in society and there is check sheets exactly. Of, you know, what everyone needs to do per week. You know what accountability, what their two, you know, um, check in and all the, all the different stuff. There's an actual like protocol for the eight pillars of business. Okay. But what will often happens is people will go, well, I need to know exactly what the next step is. Well in entrepreneurship, there's not, it's not like elementary school where you go to elementary school and that night they say, this is your exact homework. And then you gotta come back and turn in this homework. Okay. Entrepreneurship is a lot of innovation. You have to flow with it. There's not, I mean, there's a generality of different answers. Like for example, lead generation, you know, there's different ways of lead generation. Is it gonna be through your social media?

(15:21):

Is it gonna be because you're going out to networking, is it gonna be because you're, you know, powerfully having conversations everywhere you go, are you gonna pay ads? Are you gonna do speaking gigs? There's many different ways of lead generation, but people want exactly the formula for it. Well, you gotta see what works for you. You gotta see what flows and what's natural for your authentic flow around lead generation. If I just gave you a cook cookie cutter around all of it, then you're gonna try and be something that is inauthentic for you. Okay. So entrepreneurial skills, one of the top reasons spiritual coaches don't succeed is because they do not have business or entrepreneurial skills. And it is really a mindset and a skill set within that. Okay. Next, the next reason why people, um, are not having success as a spiritual coach is they try and do it all alone.

(16:09):

Okay. You guys need to realize like, who are the big coaches out there that you like, maybe there's Tony Robbins or Chopra or J Sheddy or I don't know. There's so many spiritual coaches. Okay. You need to understand that they have huge teams. Okay. If you wanna have success, you've got to team up. You've gotta delegate. You've gotta learn that you've either gotta have partners or delegate. Okay. There's a saying that if you wanna go fast, do it alone. If you wanna go far do it together. So if you wanna do it together and that's part of like getting a coaching community, if you want to, um, you can do it alone, but, and you're gonna go fast. It's gonna feel fast, but actually you're gonna go slower. It's crazy because you're gonna, it's take you 10 times learn what you can Google versus finding someone that actually has gone through the process.

(16:56):

There is kind of common denominators and a formula online because people have been doing it now. And we've all been coaching together and in each other's communities and we see what works and doesn't work and, and there's common denominators in that. So if you want to do it alone, you can just know it's gonna be super lonely and it's gonna be way more frustrating. And you're gonna have to eventually, you know, come into other communities. And generally in the coaching world, how you come into other communities is you actually generally pay to be in that coaching community. And in that coaching community opens up 10 more communities and collaborations and whatever. That's the secret. If there's a secret behind the secret of coaching online, it's that people paid for other coaches. It's just part of, part of the reality of our world. Okay. Um, number seven's money.

(17:44):

We just talked about that. So it's funny cuz if you think about it, universal law states that whatever, whatever we put out has to be reflected back, right? It's the law of correlation, the law of cause and effect and money is, is funny because if you don't, you know, if you're having a hard time paying for a coaching program, then guess what? You're probably gonna have it. It's probably gonna a hard time getting people to co to pay for your coaching program. That's just, you know, that's just 1 0 1 of universal law. So if you are wanting to have a breakthrough in the realm of actually becoming a spiritual coach that gets paid instead of having to just be a hobby, you've gotta think about the flow of money. You've gotta think about that. It's designed this way. Your current state of mind is only it's in its it's in its box.

(18:28):

Okay? So to get it out of its box, you've gotta take a quantum leap. And oftentimes that quantum leap can be scary. You've gotta move past, you know, your past programming and so money, you know, what do you, what if you're having a hard time having success, it does come down to money. You've got to oftentimes pay to learn the next, you know, aspect of coaching to learn the next marketing skill, to learn the next whatever. And if you're not willing to pay for other people's coaching programs, then you probably will have a hard time justifying in your mind. Cuz people will say, well, what should I, you know, charge for my products? What should I charge to, to coach people? Well, there is a formula and we go through that, the three different levels of what you primarily should charge. But the reality is that what I tell people is that you should charge what you believe you would pay for it.

(19:17):

Because if you don't believe in your product, then you're not gonna be able to sell your product. Okay? So it's important to understand that. So money, if you don't believe that it's valuable to have a coach, then you probably will have a hard time getting people that pay for you to be a coach. It's just a reality of it. Okay. Next is. I think this is super important is top reasons. I find that people don't succeed as a spiritual coach is that they're not coachable. They're not coachable. I mean, literally I can tell people do this and that. And it's fine. I don't, I don't say you have to do this or you're wrong or bad or you won't have success, but I'm telling them formulas that are proven, like I've witnessed people and this is what and they go, no, no, no, I'm just gonna do it this other way.

(19:58):

Go for it. And then they're frustrated. Well, cuz you're not coachable. Like, are you coachable? That means are you willing to really open your eyes and see what's worked for other people and then you can still do it your way. But you're not even trying some of the formulas that have worked for many masters in, in the coaching world. Okay. You've gotta be coachable. You've gotta open up your heart, open your mind, think of what you're doing. And, and if it's not working, then you gotta think of, you know, taking advice from other people. The greatest of the greatest have mentors and coaches. You think Tony Robbins doesn't constantly learn and learn from other people and masters. You think that, you know any of these people out there coaching majority of all of them, the greatest athletes, um, they all have mentors. They all have coaches.

(20:42):

If you wanted to become a gold medalist as a Olympic champion, you think that happens alone? Hell no. They have coaches. They know people that have taken other people and trained other people as Olympic medalist. Right. So why would you try and do this alone? I mean seriously, if money was of no object, would you have a coach? Probably. Yes. So that means you're handing your power over to money. It's really simple. This is a mental game. If you are wanting to truly be a powerful coach, you've gotta realize the game that you're playing. Okay. And then next is follow through. A lot of people just don't follow through. And it's important that look, you can never fail at something if you, if, as long as you keep going. So no, whatever failures, if you've done a lot of these things, which I know I have, it's always never, it's never too late.

(21:32):

It's never too late. Okay. You can keep following through. You can keep learning. You can keep growing, you can keep succeeding and you can get better. That's the bottom line. So on that note, I recognize that being a spiritual coach is an honor. It really is. And I truly believe that everybody either needs spiritual coaching or they need to implement the principles of being a spiritual coach for themselves and surrounding themselves with the community that lives on spiritual principle that focuses on their greatness and helps support them in that I recognize right here, right now that you have a gift in calling and whether that's somebody that wants to just implement the spiritual principles into their personal professional lives that you deserve to be the CEO of your life. And this is the deal you are successful. There's nothing but success. The truth of who you are is a miracle in existence.

(22:24):

Okay? But if you're feeling frustrated, if you're feeling overwhelmed, if you're feeling like, you know, all these things you're trying to do too much, but you're not actually having, you know, efficiency, you've gotta take a breath step back and get real with yourself. Okay. This is your life. This is your message. This is your legacy. This is what is gonna make the biggest impact in your life and everyone around. And so please take a moment to think, what is it that you're really willing to do? What you're willing to sacrifice? What are you willing to commit to, to fulfill upon your dreams? It's just a matter of procrastination and that's it. I know that you are successful, that you have the ability to be a world renowned, spiritual coach and leader. I know that for certain, anybody can, if they apply the principles, if they, you know, get a great teaching, we teach universal law, new thought.
