Have you ever wondered what role your parents played when they taught you to walk or taught you your alphabet?
How about at school? Did you have a really great teacher who made a difference in your life by giving you a little more of their time and some extra attention?
Do you see any similarities? I bet you do…
Each one of these scenarios involved someone who gave you the time, attention and handholding you needed at certain critical points in your life, especially at the time when you needed to grow and learn.
Now let me ask you this next question …
Have you ever seen any athlete make it to any kind of a championship without a coach?
Oh, and did you know that the world’s top leaders (including presidents of countries) and CEOs have coaches?
Again, the similarity is that both athletes and CEOs need a coach to get them to perform at their highest levels through personalized and specialized support – exactly what they need.
Therefore, it’s essential to understand that we all need a coach at some point in our lives. If we want to grow to the next level, it’s essential for someone who knows what they’re doing to guide us on our path to success.
A coach with proven track results and experience has the ability to help you get to your goals, no matter how big or small they are! Of course, the type of goals will determine the type of coach. There are performance coaches, mindset coaches, visualization coaches, wealth, health, nutrition, fitness coaches – you name the specialization and there’s someone who specializes in it.
If you know you deserve better and want to do better than you’re doing right now, it’s important for you to get that help. Sometimes we think we need a certain “thing” that will solve all our problems. But mostly we’re off the mark by either a little or a lot. That’s because the “thing” we lack is clarity.
A good coach can help you get so clear it’s like you can reach out and touch your goals! Your vision can come to life sooner than you think when you have a coach guiding you through it all.
While it’s good to get started with all the free information available all over the internet, it’s only good for a few months. You should get a coach sooner than later to help get you the information that’s right for you.
For instance, you have a headache. You get an aspirin and feel better but it returns. So now you need to see a doctor to find out what’s wrong.
The doctor finds you were suffering with high blood pressure that was giving you the headache and prescribes a different medication.
You’d never have known if you hadn’t seen an expert. The readily available over-the counter painkiller might have treated the symptom but you could have had more serious issues had you ignored the headache and not seen a doc.
I hope you’re getting where I’m going with this.
No matter how smart or experienced you may be, remember a coach will always have the objectivity and a perspective that might save you a headache. Sometimes we don’t see everything when we’re in a situation, which a coach will pick up on right away.
Remember, when you have a coach help you with something, your progress sets you ahead by three years! Now, how’s that for getting help when you need it?
A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.
