➕One day, though, I finally got it. I’m a coach I thought. To me, a coach is a person who is your friend, someone who Really cares about you. A coach is committed to helping you be the best that you can be. A coach will challenge you, not let you off the hook. Coaches have knowledge and experience because they’ve been there before. They aren’t any better than the people they are coaching (this took away my need to have to be perfect for the people I was “teaching”). In fact, the people they coach may have natural abilities superior to their own. But because coaches have concentrated their power in a particular area for years, they can teach you one or two distinctions that can immediately transform your performance in a matter of moments....sometimes coaches can teach you new information, new strategies and skills; they show you how to get measurable results. Sometimes a coach doesn’t even teach you something new, but they remind you of what you need to do at just the right moment, and they push you to do it. I thought, “what I truly am is a success coach. I help coach people on how to achieve what they really want more quickly and easily.” And everyone needs a coach, whether it’s a top level executive, a graduate student, a homemaker, a homeless person, or the president of the United States! As soon as I started using this metaphor it immediately changed the way I felt about myself. I felt less stressed, more relaxed; I felt closer to people. I didn’t have to be “perfect” or “better.” I began to have more fun, and my impact on people multiplied manyfold.➕ -Tony Robbins ....this is why I love being a coach✨ and this was the greatest explanation of what a coach is that I’ve ever read. It hit a special place in my heart + I needed to share.
