3 Ways Hiring a Coach Can Help You Succeed
We’re going to take a short trip down memory lane…
Remember when you were on the sports team and there was that one coach who was always a hard***?
You know, the one who made you run extra laps, perform extra drills when you were late, and often kept you for conditioning past regular hours?
Oh yeah, that coach.
Chances are, in the moment, he was probably your least favorite. However, if you reflect on it now, it was that ‘tough love’ that made you much better when it came to the game.
The same principle applies to many of our past teachers and leaders. It was the tough ones who, in the moment, may have been our least favorite. Yet in the end, they taught us the most.
They challenged us, to do better. To be better. They believed in us, and that belief gave us the power to see what we were truly capable of.
Fast forward to our life today; the world of most adults looks vastly different.
Generally, there isn’t someone challenging you to do extra ‘conditioning’ so you perform at your best. Nor is there someone cheering you on when you scale up in your business and achieve the next level you’ve been working towards.
Yet, as statistics state, you’re 85% more likely to achieve your goals when you have an accountability partner on the other end.
Let’s face it. We all know what we “should” be doing in order to consistently achieve our goals.
Choosing healthier food options
Waking up early
Getting more sleep
Making more time for SELF
The list goes on…
Why then, don’t we do it?
The reason is because we don't have a big enough WHY.
Our why for what it is we want isn't strong enough, clear enough and doesn't have enough weight in order to outweigh the habits that keep us from taking action in accomplishing our goals.
It's our why that makes the difference between knowing what we need to do and actually having the energy and drive to do it.
Getting in touch with your big why harnessing the power deep within isn't always as easy as one may think. It takes a lot of diving deep and uncovering old stories patterns and habits, and this is where a coach comes in.
3 reasons hiring a coach can help you achieve your goals in your business and your life
#1 Increase Your Bottom Line
An article in Forbes Magazine recently quoted a study that stated “60% of respondents from organizations with strong coaching cultures report their revenue to be above average.”
Yep, that’s right.
Hiring a coach is an investment… and hiring a good coach is an investment that has the opportunity to pay off in more ways than one.
Not only can hiring a coach help you increase your bottom line, but when it comes to achieving goals in various area's of your life, statistics state that you are 85% more likely to achieve your goals when you have a buddy holding you accountable, and 90% more likely when you have a coach leading the way.
#2 Coaches Can See What You Can't
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own story that we lose the ability to see the answers that are right in front of us. We become so involved in the success of what we are trying to achieve that we become blind to the truth that may be staring us in the face.
We love the work we do, and naturally have attachments to the outcome.
As an article in entrepreneur states: “A good coach can help you see what you’re missing and identify your blind spots.”
This means making fewer mistakes and rebounding much more quickly from the ones you do make.
#3 Coaches Recognize Your Highest Potential
It’s true, at the end of the day, we are our own toughest critic. As entrepreneurs, this can be crippling to our business since we are often overworked, under paid and underappreciated.
This is where your coach steps in. They acknowledge how far you’ve come and provide you with the tools to continue moving towards what both of you understand to be your fullest potential.
They push you when you need to be pushed and call you on your b.s. when you are giving less than your best. Most importantly, they lift you up when you are feeling unmotivated and defeated.
Your coach is your biggest fan and your greatest ally.
A coach creates the space for you to be seen, heard and enables your to truly see what you are capable of. At the end of the day we are capable of far more than we can imagine. Hiring a coach in any arena of your life can help you achieve new heights and succeed in ways like never before.
