Do you pride yourself on being very independent?
You set goals, you figure it out, and that’s the way that you’ve got to the place you are today, and you’ve probably had some success that way.
Let me introduce you to a new way of operating that can be much more productive, much more effective, and accelerate your results.
When we were kids, we naturally had many mentors, teachers, and coaches in our life. And throughout that period of our life we’re constantly being mentored, we’re constantly having those course corrections, we’re learning from other people’s experiences and knowledge and wisdom as a result of that. We learn so much during that time of our life – I look at my kids from the beginning of the school year to the end of the school year, their growth is really exponential! This carries on for the first 18 years of our life, and maybe if you go into post-secondary, we have those structures around us.
A funny thing happens we finish post-secondary education. We go out into the work world, and all of a sudden it’s like something switches in our brain and we go “I’m an adult now, I’m supposed to have all the answers. We’re looking at our peers and other people and we assume they have it all figured out. But really, we’re all in the same place. What can then happen is we isolate ourselves, and we go about life in this lone ranger syndrome. We become fiercely independent. All of a sudden, asking for help is a sign of weakness, instead of doing what got us to where we are in life, which is seeking help, guidance, having mentors, coaches, or consultants around us, so we can accelerate our learning.
Lean on people who’ve gone before you, lean on people who’ve tried some things, learn from people who have accomplished things that you want to accomplish. When we lean into those types of support structures, if it’s a coach, a mentor, or simply a peer who’s achieved some things, it decreases our learning curve and we have this exponential growth.
Consider for a moment, where have you been operating in that lone ranger syndrome, where you feel like you have to isolate? Where have you been left to figure it out on your own, where it hasn’t maybe even dawned on you that you could ask for help?
And what if you did find that right support structure for you? What could that mean for you?
Imagine how much further and faster you could go with the help of a coach. In mentoring entrepreneurs and individuals for the last 20 years, what I have found is in that coaching relationship, it can often decrease the learning curve by three to five years, compared to what we can do on our own.
Is it time for you to lean in and allow yourself to be supported, to ask for help, to have inspiration, motivation, and accountability? If now is your time and you’re ready to accelerate your growth by finding a mentor, and if you’re curious if my coaching programs are a fit for you, let’s have that conversation. In between my coaching and my speaking calendar, I carve out times for complimentary strategy sessions where we can have a conversation to see where you are, where you want to go, and if we’d be a right fit to work together.
I like to say that professional sports players don’t get to that level of success and fire their coaches. They actually increase the level of support and coaches they have in their life.
We can’t see our own subconscious blocks. We can’t see what’s holding us back. It’s way easier to see that for other people.
You’ve reached a level of success – are you ready to take it to the next level? And if you are, leaning on coaching mentorship will certainly accelerate your results.
Here is to you living a life you love,
