Top Coaches like Tony Robbins, Grand Cardone, Saurabh Kaushik, and Jhon Mattone says that you already have everything you need in order to succeed We often feel like we need more education, another certification, or a specific number of years of experience before we succeed. More often, all you need is to just believe and take action.
“Everyone needs a coach. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a basketball player, a tennis player, a gymnast or a bridge player. We all need people who will give us feedback. That’s how we improve.” — Bill Gates in his 2013 TED talk
Here are seven key learnings that entrepreneurs from across the world have learned from their coaching journey:
Best Clarity comes from the execution
Planning is important, and execution, even more so. If you aren’t sure which direction to take, you will remain stuck until you choose. Only once you’ve put your foot forward will you know if it’s the right path for you.
Failure is a blessing to be the best in the world
When you look back, you won’t be able to decipher what gave you your biggest learnings, the little successes or the painful failures. You may not relate failure with success but the world’s best embrace failure for what it truly is; a vehicle for learning.
You choose what you don’t change
Even when you’re not doing anything, you choosing something. If you don’t like your work or what you earn, or the house you live in, and you’re not doing anything to change it, you’re still choosing those things.
You don’t have to do it alone
All leaders have gaps. It is fundamental to recognise where your weaknesses are, and actively find people to fill those gaps for an effective team. Look at highly successful companies such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google. These companies were all driven by top teams with vastly different skill sets that worked together in brilliant ways.
The best one is - to give more to get more
To receive much, you should give much. The same works in nature, and in business. Offer better experiences, build better customer relationships, add real value to the lives of others.
There are qualities that uniquely make you the person you are. These are most likely your strengths. Over the years, you may concentrate all your efforts focusing on improving your weaknesses. Improving weaknesses and covering for your “blind spots” are important, but the strengths are your strengths for a reason.
