The Power of a Coach

There is amazing power in being a part of a like-minded Community. It will help you stay on track toward your personal goals of weight loss and ultimate health. 

And it’s a support! But if you truly want to get through those goal posts you’ve set in the distance, you’ll need… a fantastic Coach

Professional and elite athletes, the world’s foremost thought leaders, and even every single super successful entrepreneur I’ve ever met or heard about had one thing in common… a coach who pushed them past (their perceived!) limits and beyond. 

If you’ve decided that NOW is the time for you to take back your health, once and for all, I applaud you! But if you want to see remarkable results in the SHORTEST amount of time possible, you need a coach. 

So why a coach? 


As well as you know yourself and your limits, your desires and goals, if you want them to come to you sooner than later, you need someone from the outside looking in and removing the obstacles you don’t even realize you might be putting in your way. 

The right coach can help you bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be in less time than you might think possible. A coach can not only see you as you are, a coach can see your true potential and get you all the way to your goals and even beyond what you ever imagined. 

A great coach is trained to adapt to YOU as a person, to inherently know what
you need, and when you need it for optimal results. 

Some days you might need a softer approach, and some days you need a swift kick in the butt to really optimize your progress, and a great coach will know how to manage you to help you get the results you need through the shortest possible route. 


The ancient saying “all roads lead to Rome” is true in this case. There are a lot of pathways to your personal goals of health and well-being, but the straightest most true road of them all is allowing someone who’s already mastered the journey lead you on yours. 

Choosing the right coach. 


Being coached toward your goals is the absolute best way to experience massive success in the shortest amount of time. But the KEY to your success is finding a coach that knows exactly the path you’re on, and has a level of expertise and mastery to bring directly to you. 

The right coach will help you bridge the gap, fill in the blanks and guide you to success. They’ll hold you accountable and give you the ugly truth sometimes, even if it hurts, but they’ll also be there to celebrate your biggest wins and keep that wind in your sails! 


Great coaches have incredible communication and connection skills coupled with the mastery and ability to tell you the things you need to hear and the things you might not have ever considered as you’re trying to reach your ultimate goals.

 
In fact, you might experience some frustration when you take the information from a coach and try to implement it. But that space of frustration is the best place to be because that means you’re changing your behavior and your patterns in order to achieve success. When you experience this, it can be ugly at first, a little messy in the middle, but so beautiful once you make it through to the other side and see what you are capable of.


If you’ve started down the path to improving your health, or you’re looking to feel better, have more energy, or lose weight …or maybe it’s that you’re dealing with the negative effects of disease, or you’re looking to prevent health-related or hereditary-related issues down the road. Then, I urge you to accept coaching into your life.


How to find the perfect coach that matches your success goals: 


Find a master. Unless they’ve walked the walk, you’re going to want to walk away. There are tons of “Coaches” out there who’ve never actually DONE the work themselves and still somehow believe they’re qualified to tell you how to reach your goals. Find someone who’s been in the exact same trenches and “knows the shortcut to Rome” from their own experiences.


Find a coach with empathy. This is actually pretty important when it comes to coaches. Coaches are observers, problem solvers and connectors. Find a coach who is understanding and in touch not only with their own emotions, but sensitive and caring about yours. Your health is a personal progression and journey… empathy matters. 


Find a good communicator might be the most important aspect of a successful coaching relationship. It’s about suggestion the right thing at the right time to stretch you to the point where you are constantly in a growth pattern. Knowing what to say and when to say it is the mark of a great coach. 

And there’s one last thing, I call it… 

The X-Factor.  A coach should size up your goals and your potential and have a unique ability to “see you as you will be” not just as you are now. They hold the space for you to become that person you’re striving to be until you can hold that space for yourself. They’ll push you right to the edge of what’s possible and eke out the very best of your potential! 


If you are ready to supercharge your race to your ultimate personal goals in health, weight loss, and even life… adding a coach can make all the difference!
