You Are Your Own Best Testimonial: A Powerful Tip for New & Aspiring Spiritual Life Coaches

Your spiritual philosophy can be as solid and valuable as a golden goose egg, but without credibility and authority, you’re the only person who benefits from that knowledge.

Before my client testimonials, I demonstrated my “street cred” by letting my lifestyle speak for itself. The tangible results of consistent practice supported my spiritual philosophy’s validity. Through my blog, videos, and face-to-face interactions, people got a sense that I knew what I was talking about and that I believed in what I was doing because I was the living evidence.

For some, discussing philosophical ideas is less challenging than talking about how Badass they are. If this is your experience, move towards that discomfort! Engage in Shadow Work to discover and heal the parts of yourself that shirk away from boasting. Then, add that to your Treasury of Boasts! You have SO much to offer, but how will anyone know if you don’t tell them?

Here are a few practices to get you started:

  • Treasury of Boasts Exercise: write down literally EVERYTHING you can do that is of value, from rocket science or parenting to reading or typing really quickly.
  • Document Your Journey: write a memoir about yourself, FOR yourself. Practice recounting your story of transformation until it feels natural.
  • Treasury of Triumph Over Trauma Exercise: list all the challenges that you’ve overcome, how you coped with or healed from them, and the results of your actions.

I find it helpful to set a timer for 10 minutes at a time, revisiting the exercises as needed.

In conclusion, having a strong spiritual philosophy is important, but it can only benefit you if you have credibility and authority to back it up.

Demonstrating the tangible results of your consistent spiritual practice and engaging in self-reflection exercises can help you build credibility and confidence. By sharing your experiences and knowledge with others, you can inspire and positively impact the world.
