A couple of weeks ago we published a blog post titled, “25 Things A Coach Would Never Say”, which was by far our most popular blog post of all time.
We asked our readers, like you, to reframe those 25 things into questions that a coach would ask, and statements that a coach would say, instead, and we received some great answers.
So what we’ve done today is taken some of your reframes and compiled them into a new list of 25 things a coach would say that would help a client facilitate change.
These are your words! Check it out…

  • What did you learn from the experience?
  • Try new things…the results will surprise you.
  • Self-confidence is the best outfit—own it!
  • What would make you feel empowered in this situation?
  • Let’s focus on the things that have gone well for you.
  • You are already making great decisions, what else can you do to keep pushing forward to the outcome you desire?
  • It’s ok…we all make mistakes—that’s the definition of “human”
  • Let’s take it one day at a time.
  • You can help yourself do this, and I will be right there with you.
  • In what way might I be able to support you at this time?
  • You are the only one in control of your own destiny.
  • What if you fail?…My Goodness what if you succeed?
  • Just because that’s the way it is, doesn’t mean that’s the way it has to be.
  • Anything and everything you want in this life is possible if you choose to believe it.
  • Impossible: I’m=possible!
  • Your choices matter. Let’s find those that make you feel great from the inside out.
  • What would need to happen for you to rise above this situation?
  • Tell me about a time that you were successful.
  • How can you turn that into a positive?
  • Kudos for trying your best.
  • What would happen if you don’t try?
  • You are in control of your destiny. “Destiny” comes from the Latin “Destinare,” which means to “make firm”, or “establish”. It’s a verb, not a noun. It implies action—your action—which you control.
  • You have worthwhile goals and dreams and they are worth striving for.
  • Let’s work together to find some possible solutions.
  • If you don’t try, you can’t fail. But if you don’t try, you can’t succeed. To steal from my local lottery dealer, “If you don’t play, you can’t win!”
