The winning edge

Most people never reach their full potential and they may not know why. You can have the drive, the desire, the passion and the qualities to perform beyond your dreams but it doesn’t happen.

Look at the professional golfers and you’ll see something they have in common. They have someone who helps them reach the winning edge. They have a coach that helps them go beyond their own mental and physical boundaries.

Coaching though isn’t about teaching, mentoring or counseling. Coaching is about helping the client find their true self so they can achieve maximal success.

What does it take go get to the winning edge? It takes a person who wants to do the work that it takes to make the necessary changes that will allow the full range of talents to be released. Coaching is for people who know that self-improvement rarely works and are willing to invest in coaching so that they can continually improve their performance.

You are coachable when:

You allow others to help you.

You have a teachable spirit and a willingness to learn.

You are willing to let go of today to reach for tomorrow.

You are willing to be held accountable.

You are willing to look at yourself in the mirror.

Inside of us there is something waiting to be released, it is the full power of our self. Are you ready to take the first step? What is your plan? Take the first step.


Take just a moment and practice – SMILING

Oh, yeah — are you down –come on – smile, just a little smile, you can make it a bit bigger, oh, stretch those lips, you are getting there, now one last big move – all the way now — SMILE — SMILE, you can do it and I knew you could.   Let your day be a bit brighter and bit more lively and let yourself smile inside and out.

I hope you are feeling a bit better. I hope you have a bounce in your step and a smile that is contagious on your face. It’s OK – you can do it.
