One of my favorite rides at amusement parks are the roller coasters. However it wasn’t always like that before I got on the ride. The ups and downs, twists and turns, are not only exhilarating, but sometimes scary! When you’re up, you are feeling the excitement of being on top of the world. When you’re at the bottom, you know you’ll be going back up again and you are anxious for that moment. The twists and turns have your stomach doing the same. Scary, but exiting at the same time.
Much is the same for business. We love the highs, however we know that the lows are also part of the ride. The twists and turns just keep us on our game. It’s for these exact moments that a coach will sit beside you and make sure you enjoy the ride. To realize that it’s a natural part of the journey of growth.
- A Coach will be your motivator and cheerleader when he needs to. When you get a little nervous at the low periods, he will remind you of when you were at the top and that you can get there again. It’s just a bump in the ride.
- He will get you to push harder when you want to quit. He won’t let you take the easy way out, but instead push on.
- He will help you put systems in place that will free up your time to help you work on the business instead of being consumed by it.
- A Coach will make you run more laps while making each round easier and more efficient.
The best part of having a Coach is he’s also been on the ride himself, however he’s trained to manage the highs, lows, twists and turns in a more mastering way. With a Coach by your side, not only will you endure the ride, but you’ll learn to appreciate it, open your eyes, and throw your arms in the air. When you’re feeling a little down and ready to get out of the line, talk to your Coach. He’s on this ride with you!
