We are bad at noticing our blind spots, or acknowledging how we could be standing in our own ways.
Our friends & family may give us measured feedback so as not to displease us, or even if they’re direct at giving feedback, it may not be impartial.
YouTube videos, articles, or books give great strategies, but they’re generic, none of them are specific to you.
Just as people have employed personal trainers to help them get fit and lose weight, achieving goals can be accelerated by using a coach to apply similar success principles in life.
The bottom line is we improve when we get feedback.
If you reach out for support, that means you’re not broken, in fact, you’re taking ownership over your success and are being more open to life’s possibilities.
