I was reflecting on this question for myself, “are you coachable?”
I know I wasn’t always able to receive guidance from coaches.
One time in particular comes to mind when I was playing soccer in college.
I was in a new setting with others I didn’t yet trust and receiving a new way of doing things had me unsure about my capabilities.
I took the feedback of how I can make changes as a personal failure rather than an opportunity to grow and expand.
Now, I see how being coachable isn’t just for sports, but for anything one is stepping into that is new and pushes one comfort zone into new heights.
Learning and growing is lifelong for us, if you’re open for change.
I hear from others who feel the fear of growing show up as,
“this isn’t going to work”,
“I can’t do that”,
“I’ve tried changing and doing things differently before, but it never worked”,
“I have to do this all myself because my family and friends won’t help and they won’t change.”
These lies you tell yourself, can really hold you back from the things you want to achieve in your life.
It sidelines you from even dreaming about what is possible.
Being coachable is a muscle you can flex and strengthen, it just takes practice in your intention of wanting something different for yourself.
Lighting your own fire in what you want most.
Being coachable is about taking action even when you feel the fear bubbling up while allowing yourself to sit in stillness and explore what these feelings are trying to tell you.
Your vulnerability will open your heart to deepening your awareness of what is possible.
As you take action, your confidence will ignite.
You’ll start recognizing that when things don’t go perfectly, you are empowered to try again.
You no longer see the “thing” not working not as a personal fault, but just information of what else you can do.
When you’re flexing your coachable muscles, you express your willingness to stretch your comfort zone and realize your own potential.
You empower yourself in coming up with solutions and deepening the relationship with yourself and those around you.
Making change happen isn’t easy or fast or effortless or removed from you.
Any change you seek, starts with you.
When you’re coachable, you can receive support and guidance on your journey and don’t have to face it all alone.
