We need coaches to help us understand how to overcome obstacles. And we need them to help us to see hope where there’s none. They are a special fertilizer that can revive the old soil that we’re standing on, so we can plant some new ideas. They’re there for us to blossom while showering us with love, nurture and guidance.
A great coach understands the struggles of the world, and can lead you on the path with courage and compassion. He or she will encourage you to never give up. Great coaches are genuine and honest with what they know and don’t know. They’re acutely aware of their strengths and their limitations. They are consistent and dependable.
Authentic coaches think impact rather than fame and money. They understand that life is a journey in learning and evolving. Because they are not afraid of being themselves, they also give others permission to be themselves.
Coaches who mean well can create a blueprint for life that can help you thrive. In their company, a great coach can help you set up a vision, purpose and a strategy to achieve your biggest goals. A good coach will help you understand that being extraordinary happens not by luck, but by design. They will help you figure out your own limiting beliefs from your past, so you can reframe them as you move forward.
They will ask you questions, and listen to understand your priorities and your goals. Great coaches will challenge your beliefs and encourage you to set your dreams into action. They will hold you accountable for you’ve set yourself up to and also honor any feedback that comes their way.
In the company of a great coach you will feel like standing on the shoulder of giants that came before you. Because, he or she will allow you to believe in what’s possible. And not shy from stretching the limits of your endurance. A great coach will teach you the importance of consistency and diligence. He or she will help put your core values into action.
