In the world of coaching, a one size fits all mentality is not always correct. Every player or student has perhaps a unique way to be coached that is not common to everyone else. Seeing yourself as a resource for other people’s success, is part of the strategical purpose of coaching. It’s helping others to come into their own.
The legendary Bruins coach John Wooden, was known for reciting a seven-point creed for life, he said he received from his father:
- Be true to yourself; 2. Make each day your masterpiece; 3. Help others; 4. Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible; 5. Make friendship a fine art; 6. Build a shelter against rainy days; 7. Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.
If you work with people, you’ve probably come to realize that not all people are the same. Because their not, you coach to bring out the best in that person as someone unique. Remember this, “Greatness starts somewhere but it doesn’t start great.”
My coaching business is designed to bring the best you to the path of your destiny. The power for life change is not found in the coach, but in the person who desires to take control of their life and to be accountable. This life transforming power comes from the individual who wants a life change, which is an inside job.
The word “coach” derives from the horse drawn coaches that were developed in the town of Kocs during the 15th century. The vehicles were originally used to transport royalty, but in time they also carried valuables, mail, and common passengers.
A Coach remains something or someone, who carries a valued person from where they are to where they want to be.
Here’s my tips: 1. We’re better together; 2. “Nobody is a whole chain, each one is a link.” 3. Nobody is a whole team; 4. Nobody is a whole Orchestra.
To help people win is a great mission in life. Zig Ziglar inspired us to remember, “We can have anything in life we want, if we’ll help enough people get what they want.” My Coach and Mentor, John C. Maxwell, instilled in us all, “We’re people of value, who value people.”
You have within you the power to win!
So, Keep standing on the Rock and winning!
