"It's not just how good you are now, it's how good you're going to be that really matters. You are never done, everybody needs a coach. Everyone. The greatest in the world needs a coach."
One of my friend has challenged me the other day: "Lucy, you mention Tony Robbins on your website... That he says that the best of the best have a coach... Yeah... he only says it, so that you think you cannot manage without him to make you buy his services..."
Does he really? I’m forever grateful to my coach who invited me to fully consider the consequences of my situation... Had I not taken action back then, I wouldn’t be where I am now! It's okay to ask for help. Especially if you want to say 'yes' to life!
You are never done, everybody needs a coach. Everyone. The greatest in the world needs a coach.
Atul Gawande in his TED Talk "Want to get great at something? Get a coach" puts it so well...
"I don't come to you today as an expert. I come to you as someone who has been really interested in how I get better at what I do and how we all do. I think it's not just how good you are now, I think it's how good you're going to be that really matters. (...)
Turns out there are numerous problems in making it on your own. You don't recognize the issues that are standing in your way or if you do, you don't necessarily know how to fix them. And the result is that somewhere along the way, you stop improving. What great coaches do is they are your external eyes and ears, providing a more accurate picture of your reality.They're recognizing the fundamentals. They're breaking your actions down and then helping you build them back up again.
After two months of coaching, I felt myself getting better again. And after a year, I saw my complications drop down even further. It was painful. I didn't like being observed, and at times I didn't want to have to work on things. I also felt there were periods where I would get worse before I got better. But it made me realize that the coaches were onto something profoundly important."
What an inspirational talk! Make sure to watch!
