Why I Coach!
Last month I had the unique opportunity of speaking at a local grade school for “Career Day”. What an awesome environment! Seeing young, impressionable minds eager to learn and quick to smile. It was a chance for me to reflect on why I chose my path, how it shaped me, how it made me the person I am today…. why I chose to Coach. My father was a Coach, both my brothers’ Coach, and I am proud to call myself “Coach”. This profession runs deep in our families’ DNA. Having the chance to self-reflect it was easy to see why I chose to Coach.
I Coach to be transformational, not transactional. I Coach to teach character, not lip sync it. I Coach to reach inner potential, not one rep maxes. I Coach for strength, not bicep circumference. I Coach for self-confidence, not ego boosting. I Coach for accountability, not rep counting. I Coach with intent, not blind faith. I Coach with my heart, not with intimidation. I Coach with every ounce of everything I have to offer! Every athletic career has an expiration date. I Coach to prolong this process. I Coach to embrace the grind, the path, the journey, the process! I Coach to change lives!
