Most people think of a coach as someone who tells you what to do when you don’t know what to do. Maybe that is one definition. But I define coaching as the art of helping someone get from where they are to where they want to be.
This definition might sound simple enough, but I assure you that coaching is anything BUT simple. Because when it comes to personal success, we have a strange dynamic going on inside of us. We are simultaneously our own biggest advocate AND our own worst enemy.
How is this even possible? Well, obviously we want to be successful. So we work to make that happen. And we think we are doing the right things to make it happen. But unfortunately, over 95% of our actions are automatic in nature. And what we do in this automatic realm of action and thought is completely unknown to us. We hardly ever see it, even after the fact. So we can actually end up undermining our own success without even knowing it. And the worst part is that we are doing this to ourselves.
The solution? You need a coach.
Well, let me rewind a minute. You already have a coach. You actually have several coaches. More than you can count in fact. Because we are coached by anything and everyone that we surround ourselves with. Anything that could potentially generate a thought in our head is a coach. Family, friends, coworkers, TV, movies, books, social media, and of course, ourselves. All of these act as coaches in our lives.
So it’s not that you need a coach. You already have one. You just need to be intentional about it. You need someone who can help you see what’s in that automatic response system, and how it might negatively be effecting your results, performance, and outcomes. This is why you hire a coach. Because a good coach can help you see what’s holding you back.
So I don’t care if it’s me or someone else. If you want to maximize your chances of success, you need a coach. And if you want to learn more about what that looks like, please reach out and schedule a time to talk.
