Hope we had a great week last week. Did you follow through & have a think about your personal standards?
Something that has come up a few times recently is with regards to coaching, and by this i mean all types of coaching. Most prevalent are sports coaches, if you look at any top athletes, they all have coaches, usually some one that has been there and done it, but has the technical know how to get the best out of the athlete in their chosen sport.
Whats been interesting recently in talking to a few people that are looking at setting a new challenge in running, swimming, triathlon etc is that quite a few people, choose a coach, pay good money for a program, but then go and question the program. Is it tough enough? Is this what I should be doing? Should I be doing things differently. Unfortunately everyone has different opinions as to how to get the results and in this day and age of easy accessibility to knowledge with the internet it muddies the water even more.
I have been thinking about this quite a bit over the last week and how coaching relates to all facets of life, whether its coaching in sports, life, career, relationship, finances etc, you need to trust the process. If you have found a good coach that has had great results, trust the process, they have been there & done it, they have coached others & been coached themselves. The worst thing you can do is go sharing the program around, getting others to critique it, this will get you know where apart from loosing faith in the program you have.
Work with your coach, follow the process and review your progress down the track. If you have been committed and followed the process 100% and not seen any results, then reevaluate. Otherwise commit to it, give 100% follow the process and see what amazing results you can achieve….
