What a Coach Does

An inspiring coach brings out the best on our human nature.

One of our sweet family members recently shared this powerful poem that his grandfather used to motivate him during tough times:

When the world says, “Give up,”

Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

Faith whispers, “You can do it, ignore all those who doubt”

Commitment whispers, “Never give up”

Success SCREAMS ” I TOLD YOU SO!!!”

Now, reread this poem and replace the words Hope, Faith, Commitment and Success with the word Coach.

It still holds true because excellent coaches inspire hope, faith, commitment and success.

May this poem and your coaching inspire those who are ready to give up.
