Like many of you, I enjoy watching figure skating in the Olympics. As someone who never felt at home on an ice rink, I’m amazed by what world class skaters can accomplish. In thinking about this, consider how important it is for these skaters to have coaches to help and guide them. In fact, it’s often having the right coach that can make a figure skater’s career. But these coaches aren’t helpful because they have more ice skating skills, or more ice skating experience. In fact, every Olympic figure skater is coached by someone who is less skilled than they are.
The real value of coaches isn’t that they have all the answers to your questions, or that they’ve already solved all your problems. The most helpful coaches are the ones who can help you better understand YOURSELF, your abilities, your weaknesses, your blind spots, and your opportunities. As your Body Groove coach, that’s what I want to do for you.
Of course, I don’t have all the answers for you, I’m just here as a guide to help you figure things out for yourself. The Discover Your Groove Challenge isn’t about copying all MY answers, or copying MY life. Instead, it’s about coming up with the answers that are best for you and your life.
ASSIGNMENT FOR DAY 2:
Look at your list from yesterday (or think about it if you didn’t write anything down) and pick one thing that you’d like to focus on. Now, think about how YOU can come up with some answers or solutions to what area you picked. Really take some time to ponder how things can be better or different. Use that big, beautiful brain you have figure out the things that will help you have the life you deserve. The answers are inside of you and will mean so much more when you discover them.
Pick something from yesterday’s list that you’d like to focus on making better. What can you do to make an impact in this area of your life?
