05/17/2015 is 25 years since my parents brought my family to the U.S. Even amidst the obstacles, challenges and many sacrifices, my parents were devoted to provide opportunities for my two older brothers and myself that they didn’t have. We also received support and mentorship along the way.
Growing up, you have mentors, teachers and coaches who support and believe in you. All they wanted to see was you succeed.
This is my big why, my motivation and my purpose. This is the reason I get up every morning. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to live a better life, to pursue my dreams and live my purpose of being a coach.
However, as adults you tend to shy away from reaching out for additional support in achieving your big goals and dreams.
I love and believe in coaching and the possibilities so much that I hired two coaches to help me achieve my big scary goal. Shout out to Farnoosh and Charly! #teamREVOLUTION #teamROCK4everXinfinity
Whether you are going through a transition and need help getting unstuck out of a rut, have a big scary goal that you are working towards or just want to infuse more passion and excitement into your life, here are my three reasons for investing in your personal coach.
1. Look out for your blind spots Because they have sat in your seat and have been where you are now, they can show you shortcuts and mistakes to avoid. One of those mistakes is having tunnel vision.
They can give you a fresh and objective perspective. Or they can give you completely new perspective by showing you new doors and opportunities that you might have missed.
2. Cushion any falls You are going to face struggles, challenges, setbacks along the way. Coaches give you tools to increase your speed of recover by minimizing the length of time you spend in the valleys (your lows) and increase the time you spend on the rise (your peaks). A coach will believe in you at times when you don’t believe in yourself.
They help you keep your head in the game especially in the moments when the only thing you want to do is throw in the towel. They will provide the encouragement and feedback to get back on your feet and do better next time.
3. Challenge you to keep growing A coach will challenge your excuses and to face whatever holds you back. They won’t tell you what you want to hear and instead will courageously tell you what you need to hear.
They have your back by holding you accountable. A coach will stretch you beyond limits even you thought were possible. They will push you to live outside your comfort zone and into your full potential.
As a coach, it’s unfortunate to see a person hold themselves back because of their limiting beliefs rather than living into their full potential by amplifying their strengths.
Somewhere deep inside you lies a dream that is waiting to come alive. Believing in yourself and taking action is the only way you will achieve the success and rewards that come from living into your best Self.
