I Have A Trust Fund
Very few coaches go into the field in order to make big bucks. Our motivation comes from our love of supporting people in their path to success. Unfortunately, not only do many coaches not make big bucks, many quit the business entirely after awhile. Fortunately for me, I have a trust fund.
There are sometimes judgments about people with trust funds. Don’t go there, because my trust fund is not inherited, it’s not even financial! My trust fund is my TRUST that my life is working. It’s a spiritual or philosophical (whatever word works for you) view of life that tells me that I am OK and I will always be OK, no matter what. I recall the phrase from one of my favorite movies, “Being There“: “All is well, and all will be well in the garden.”
One of the good things about middle age is that I can now see, after 25 years on my own, that all is well in my garden; things do work out, even the relationships, jobs or businesses, the choices, the friendships that didn’t work out the way I had hoped. I survive, I learn and I keep progressing.
So I encourage you to set up your own “trust fund.” Because you need your energy for better things than worrying. The more you trust your life, the better you can handle your failures and your successes.
