How Coaching Helps To Take My Business to New Heights

I value wise counseling.

Wise words in times of confusion enable me to stay grounded like the anchor on a ship. Instead of being swayed by every wind that comes my way, I seek the advice of educated, experienced people who genuinely care about me and my business.

Seeking wisdom keeps me from wandering in the vast ocean of opportunities. I listen to my trusted advisers and consider their advice very strongly. I use their ideas as a springboard for forming my own conclusions. Heeding the words of the wise prevent me from unnecessary pitfalls. Life is too short to learn every lesson from personal experiences. I save myself time and heartache when I learn from the experiences of others.

My circle of advisers comprises an eclectic, well respected group of individuals from a multi-million dollar business strategist to a fellow small business owner who is building an impressive empire.

When I am deeply involved in a situation and my emotions are high, it can be challenging to think objectively. That is why I ask for wise counsel from those around me that are equipped to provide me with sound advice.

As you seek to chart your course in life, I implore you to seek out not just an adequate but a fantastic advisory team.  Surround yourself with people who you not only trust but are also equipped with the knowledge to steer you in the right direction.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. When was the last time you sought expert advice?
2. Who can you turn to for wise counsel?
3. Why is it important to evaluate various points of view before making a final decision?

  2. I couldn’t agree more – “life is too short to learn every lesson from personal experiences”. While I believe our mishaps and challenges allow us to learn valuable lessons unique to our own individual journey, there are things we could avoid if we sought advice and feedback from mentors and coaches. And if the people around you are only telling you things you want to hear, they’re doing more harm than good. You gotta have honest and trustworthy folks in your corner.

    I can’t say enough about how jumping into having a coach helped my small business. To have another point of view from an experienced person is invaluable. Particularly for owner/operators, there is a dangerous tendency to end up in a cocoon of sorts and lose touch with the big picture.
