In the premiere of Season 2, David discusses the importance of finding a coach and the three ways you can find a coach.
- Finding a coach is essential to reaching your goals because he or she holds you accountable and makes you better.
- The three types of coaching are one-on-one, groups, and media.
- No matter what you learn through coaching, not taking action will cause you fail.
During his role as a group of health coaches out to change the world one by building one healthy habit at a time, David was introduced to Micheal Burt “Everybody Needs a Coach in Life”.
It showed him the value of having someone who can make you better at all of the various phases in your life.
A coach is that someone. He or she holds you accountable and has tough conversations with you. When reaching for your goals, having a coach is invaluable.
But where do you find coaches? What types of coaching is available?
Below are three ways you can be coached and the values of each:
- One-on-one: An example of this type of coaching is a personal trainer. This is a person you respect who can speak into your life. He or she can hold you accountable, challenge, and encourage you. This type of coach believes in you so much that you want to please him or her.
- Accountability Group: An example of this is a mastermind. This type of coaching consists of a group that comes together over a common goal. The benefit of this is that when you have a group of people who make it a priority to meet, there is built in accountability. Having action steps between meetings makes you want to avoid being the person who shows up without having done your “homework”.
- Media: An example of this coaching is books or podcasts. This type of coaching takes the most effort because you have to take the initiative on your own. The benefit is that you can access lessons in an intimate way at your leisure, such as during a commute. The downside is that in order for the book or podcast to be applied, it takes action. So, if you opt for this type of coaching, make the commitment to be involved in the process.
Whatever option you, take Dave notes that action is essential.
He explained that once we get away from that coaching is when life happens — we get into our routines and that motivation we came away with begins to fade. So, if you’re not going to take action and apply what you’ve learned, then you have wasted your time.
Taking action with what you’ve learned separates success from failure, it separates the person who is overcoming from the person being overtaken.
