Be the best you can be
For a long, long time – I believed the lie of the self-made woman. The idea that the only person you need to be successful and happy is you. Number 1, the big cheese. But I would like to put forward a new way of thinking – in order for us to become our best selves, we need a quality support network to highlight our strengths, challenge us to perform at our peak, and give us perspectives we wouldn’t see ourselves.
Getting perspective on your situation from someone that it not emotionally invested in your success allows them to speak without bias, and show you what you’re missing. Two heads are always better than one.
Recently, I had a bit of a personal crisis. In this case, I had no idea what to do. It wasn’t until I spoke to my former mentor and coach that I discovered what was actually going on for me.
In my experience as a coach, I’ve learned my things from my clients. One of them is a cliché, but easily the greatest life lesson I can pass on – Everyone has the ability to do whatever they want, as long as they have passion, and the drive to get there. There is limitless potential in everyone, and on occasion you may not be able to see it for yourself until someone sees it in you.
Another great lesson is this – Why learn the hard way? Instead learn from someone who learned the hard way. My coach and mentor shared so many experiences with me from her own personal life and experiences.
At the end of the day, when all is said and done – you don’t need a coach. In just the same way as you don’t need a personal trainer to get fit, or an accountant to complete your tax return, or a lawyer to handle a unfair traffic bingle. But when you first arrive at a gym, the trainer will always ask you what your goals are. Just like life at the gym, many people either don’t know, are too vague, or lack the skillset to achieve the goal efficiently. A coach can teach you some of the best ways to build, achieve and surpass even the most seemingly insurmountable goal.
In the gym, the trainer pushed you to give them just one more rep. That one last rep can be the worst, but they know you can do it, even if you don’t. They know that that one lift is the most important, and can be the difference over the long term.
If you want to push yourself, and achieve anything you set your mind to – you need a spotter. Get a coach and see what you’re capable of!
