WORDS OF WISDOM

The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their perseverance under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit.

Mark Twain

Our chief want in life is somebody who will make us do what we can.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.

Edmond Burke

THE FOUR ROLES OF A COACH
WHO IS YOUR COACH?

When you think about it, you realize every great athlete has a coach. But why? They are already great at what they do, so what do they need a coach for? It’s because they know that even very successful people find profit in the guidance of a mentor or coach. In fact, great achievers consistently point to someone in their lives who coached them along the way.

Simply put, a great coach adds value to your game, whether your game is sports-related, academic, business-oriented, or sales. A coach gets you on the right track, keeps you on track, and speeds your progress along the track. Your coach inspires you, helps build your confidence, mentors you, challenges you, and suggests positive changes to help you get even better than you already are. Your coach watches and analyzes your game, looking for the right combination of ideas and techniques to improve your performance, and allowing you to spend more time in your game.

A coach is someone you rely on:

  • To confide in
  • To strategize with
  • To complain to
  • To partner up with
  • To bounce ideas off of
  • To review your performance without negative consequences
  • To help you look to the future
  • To learn from
  • To help you develop a personal action plan
  • To guide you without criticism or condemnation

Do you have a coach? Perhaps you do. Maybe your coach is the internet, or a program on television. Maybe you get your advice from a neighbor next door, a family member, a book on your shelf, or the latest magazine article. The most important question is, are you getting where you want to go? If not, contact me. We should talk. You owe it to yourself to be the best you can be. And I can help.
