You don’t need a life coach.

No one needs a life coach.  They really don’t.  Most people just need better friends or relationships.  It’s simple, it’s science and it’s proven.  Who you are and who you become depends highly disproportional toward the company you keep.  Period.
Jim Rohn is usually credited with saying, “we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.”  He’s referring to the law of averages and studies have even been done that support this theory.  It was shown to be true of health, wealth, happiness and other categories as well.

I’m not disparaging coaches in general and I’m grateful to the many mentors (some paid) I keep around me.  Good coaches can help create genuine results in the lives of already highly motivated individuals. But paying a success coach to mentor you then continuing to spend your time around people who don’t raise your standards is like paying a personal trainer to work you out then leaving to go binge on cake and junk food. It’s what they call a zero sum game.

Upgrading your relationships isn’t just the first thing you can and should do to create positive change in your life, it’s absolutely pivotal.  And one of the first people you should cut from your life is someone who’d charge you for this advice.
