Are you where you want to be? Are you making the progress you had hoped to?
Progress is hard.
On today’s episode of THE UNSTOPPABLE LIFE I bring on a very special co-host, Micah Shaw, to help break down some of the reasons as to why you may not be experiencing the change you want to see. Micah is a head collegiate track and field coach in Georgia. He also happens to be my younger (slower and shorter) brother!
We take a closer look at what brings about true success and achievement as we look through the lens of the world of athletics. The parallels to the personal, profession, and even spiritual worlds are striking!
So what are some of the reasons you may not be where you want to be? After first addressing a common myth that many believe about not only sports in general but also more broadly themselves, we bring out three primary reasons.
- Overwork: Athletes who train too hard and fail to get proper rest don’t excel. In fact it often ends up being counter productive.
- Underwork: It kind of goes without saying but you may not be putting into it what it really takes to see the results you desire.
- No Clearly Defined Goal: A common theme on this show, Goal Setting is the starting point, but it’s “clearly defined” and progressive goals that are the ones that bring about the most change.
Those points must be evaluated well, and often, for true success. In the context of sports this is done by coaches. They are essential to helping their teams and athletes meet their goals and accomplish far more than they thought possible. Think about it…how successful would a team be with no coaches leading the way and drawing the best out of their players?
We understand that principle in sports but why do we fail to apply it to our everyday lives? Through coaching and accountability I have seen far more results than without! Just like in sports, it’s a no brainer!
I encourage you to take a step in that direction today. For more information on coaching opportunities with me click here.
Enjoy today’s episode and discover what you might be holding you back from the results you desire.
Go and live an UNSTOPPABLE LIFE!
