Ask any baseball player how difficult it is to hit a baseball moving at 95mph and he’ll tell you it’s the hardest feat in sports. That’s why teams have hitting coaches. Ask a football wide receiver how difficult it is to catch a pass over the middle and he’ll tell you that it is mentally and physically challenging. That’s why football teams have wide receiver coaches.
Coaches give players:
Objective feedback on performance
Tips on how to improve
Reality checks on performance and egos
I sold, managed and trained for 30 years and never had a coach. That was a mistake. For the last several years another consultant and I have been each others alter egos. We talk straight with each other-no holds barred! Honesty comes first. The experience is cleansing, informative and keeps both of us on the path we have charted for ourselves. Our discussions are not always fun but they are truthful. Ultimately they are good for the mind and soul.
If you don’t have a coach find one-now! It will cost you money but you will recoup the money you invest in the coach. And invest is the key word. You will get a return on that investment.
If you think that I have the right stuff to do that then respond to this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call me at 612-309-7101.
The Final Thought: Failure is only postponed success as long as courage “coaches” ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory. Herbert Kaufman
