Here is another awesome excerpt from my latest book, I seek to help you see and understand why you need a coach in your life. I cannot understand how people go through life without a coach. But let me know spoil things read this article and be inspired to move your life to the next level.
Break out of ordinary
I beleive that we were all created to solve problems. In order to break ot of ordnary living you will need help from someone who has the ability to bring the best out of you. I want to help you get out of average living into Significant Living. This whole book was written with this in mind. My goal in life is to equip people to live significant lives full of Gods goodness. So I wear an Apostolic hat and a coaching hat. As an Apostle I equip the saints for works of ministry and as a coach I develop people to live what I call “Maxed out lives” I am a success coach and I beleive I am one of the greatest success coaches
in Africa. Now you should be asking “What is success coaching all about? Do I need a success coach? Well glad you asked those question below is an answer that will help you. I personally beleive that for people to become great they need a coach. Some have argued this and I ask “Which great person do you know that did not have a coach?
From sports personalities, to business tycoons, from iventors to great polotitians, they all had a person that mentored or coached them to greatness eith directly or indierectly. It seems God in His wisdom designed it that we all need someone else to lift us up to our next level. I hear people say things like “Well when I am successful I will get a coach”. This is far from accurate, we need a coach in order to become great. A Lionel Messi does not wait to sign up a million pound contract in order to get a coach, he knows that he needs a coach to help him achieve the goal of being one of the greatest soccar players of his time. Why do we think it is different when it comes to destiny. In fact Messi is living out his god-given destiny as he plays on the feild. In order to succeed at living out your destiny you need a success coach who will go the journey with you. Great soccar players do not need a councellor they need a coach. With good coaching they live their careers to the full.
What Is Success Coaching?
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.” –Henry David Thoreau
Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s
personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. I call this process moving from current reality to desired reality.
For many of you your pastor is your life/success coach anointed by God to help you through life so it would do you good to go to your pastor and say can you please coach me to my next level. From a soccer perspective look at Sir Alex Ferguson who has coached Manchester United for over 20 years and has led them into many victories, championships and trophies. He is a legend when it comes to greatness in the sporting world. Like him, hate him the coach of your favorite team probably has high respect for him, in fact he was probably coached by Ferguson in his sporting days.
But the question is “why a coach” before we can say “why a success coach?”
- A coach studies the sport so that he is an expert at winning
- A coach ensure that you are in the best possible shape to achieve the desired victory
- A coach ensures you have the necessary training and skills to make you win
- A coach studies your opponents so that you have the 411 when you get on the field to play
- A coach puts together a winning strategy that if followed will get awesome results
- A coach puts together the necessary team and ensures that the bench is strong
- A coach knows your strengths and weaknesses and knows how to best put them to use
- A coach brings the best out of the team
- A coach knows when you need a time out
- A coach ensures that the team maintains a winning paradigm
A coach knows how to balance the training program so that you get the best out of it
- A coach keeps the players engaged and interested in the core issues
Pep Guardiola is rated as one of the best coaches in the world because Barcelona has risen to be the best team ever. What makes this interesting is the fact that Guardiola managed to
bring in some of the best players in the world and make a great team. The great team became great because the coach was able to bring out the best out of the best in the world. It is possible to have the best and not bring out the best out of them. A good coach will bring the best out of you. I discovered that having a success coach could transform your life and bring the best out of you. My coach in the earlier days was my senior pastor; who I would spend time with when he visited South Africa and we would have what we called our “Mugg and Bean” moments where we would sit and
eat as he shared wisdom about life and ministry. These moments brought the best out of me and helped me become the champion that I am. I was coached by the best. Later on this role was carried by my spiritual father Apostle Nicky van der Westhuizen.
Every moment I invest in his presence I am growing because he is my coach.
So having a success Coach will allow you to be the best that you can be. A coach will push you
beyond the limits of average performance into greatness. If you had a life coach he would check if you had a winning strategy, he would study your opponents for you and tell you their weaknesses and strengths and you will be better equipped to win. Do you have a success coach? Are you winning in life or just existing? Are you a champion or just a statistic? Get yourself onto a coaching program and join the 5% of the population that live life by destiny and not by accident. A success coach is someone who will help you live your life to the max. They are a catalyst of change and innovation in your life that make you live an extraordinary life. Joseph was coached by his father, then by Potiphar, then the prison warden came on the scene and prepared him for the final lap of the big race to greatness. If you study closely what happened when Joseph was made Viceroy Pharoah declared that the nation was to “bow the knee” to Joseph. Properly translated from the original word “avrech” this means father, mentor, or cach to the King. Joseph was promoted to coach the King on how to administer the economy of Egypt. (Have to leave you hanging on this point. But the rest is in the book)
Go get yourself a coach. It will be the greatest favor you do yourself
