I can be relied upon to be on time for all appointments.

This is the right time for me to accept coaching.

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

I keep my word without struggle or sabotage.

I’ll give the coach the benefit of the doubt and try new concepts or different ways of doing things.

I will tell the whole truth to the coach.

If I feel I’m not getting what I need or expect, I will share this as soon as I sense it, so that I take responsibility for getting my needs met.

I am willing to alter self-defeating behaviors that limit my success.

I have adequate funds to pay for coaching and will neither regret nor suffer about the fee. I see coaching as an investment in my life.

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