Feel free to pick and choose from these journaling prompts to explore and reflect upon various aspects of growing your coaching business.

They listened attentively to every word,
Creating a safe space where dreams were heard.
With compassion as their guiding light,
They nurtured spirits, shining so bright,
They held hands through struggles and fears,
Offering guidance to wipe away tears.
The coach who cared, with empathy's embrace,
Helped others find their own special place,
They saw potential where others could not,
Unleashing greatness with every thought.
In their presence, doubts began to fade,
