What if the goal of your sessions was to get your clients to a point where they could continue their health and wellness journey alone?
What if you accepted from the first time someone trained with you that they would one day no longer be training with you?
How would you use your time together? How would you set them up for success in the years to come?
It’s the nature of things to continually change.
I’m sure you’ve read before, this moment will never happen again. And this moment. And this moment.
When a client stops training with you, maybe because they left to go to a competitor, or wanted to try another style of training, or maybe they just moved towns, it can catch you off guard and feel quite hurtful.
This is where changing your goal from keeping your client forever and ever to setting them up for success is so powerful.
What actually matters is the time that they spent with you and how you helped them during that time along their journey.
Accepting that no client will stay forever empowers you to focus on giving them the best possible experience. They’ll remember you and treasure their time with you long after they are no longer training with you.
So I’ll ask again: What if the goal was to never see your clients again?
What would you start doing differently today?
