Coaching Encouragements: #5

Good morning! Here is something I believe to be vital to becoming more effective and better at helping others. It is to be humble. One definition of humility that I heard is, to remain teachable. If I try to follow this definition then I am placed in a position to learn and thus become better in whatever I am doing. Not having all the answers is okay. At first it was hard for me to admit I did not have all the answers. I thought it was a sign of weakness. Ultimately, this brought a lot of pain in my life. Taking the position that it's okay to not have all the answers and ask for advice has had awesome results. I am much more effective and able to have a positive mindset. I love learning from other coaches as well as students. I thought that to be humble was a result of humiliation. Thankfully, I was totally wrong. I now think that to be humble is a strength and absolutely necessary to happiness. I hope that you have a day filled with happiness!
