Be Coachable

Throughout the years I always knew I was destined to do more than just work a 9-5 day in and day out. I knew my talents and ideas weren’t being used to their full potential in the office working on someone else’s dream. I knew I was suppose to change the world, one life at a time. I just never understood how I would do it!

Have you ever felt stuck?

I have.

So where was I to start? I started following people who were changing lives on social media. I searched Facebook like pages, Twitter pages and motivational pages from Instagram.

I wanted to know:

What they were doing?
Who was in their circle?
What were their daily habits?
How did they invest their money?

I found that most of them had things that I didn’t have… I don’t mean materialistic… I mean the one thing that really made a difference… The one thing that I could have that wouldn’t cost a thing… A Mentor!

What is a Mentor?

Per the Business Dictionary… A mentor is:

An Employee training system under which a senior or more experienced individual (the mentor) is assigned to act as an advisor, counselor, or guide to a junior or trainee. The mentor is responsible for providing support to, and feedback on, the individual in his or her charge.

Also known as a Coach

Finding a person who is touching lives the way you want to isn’t hard. You can study their daily habits, you can watch what they do on social media. How do they reach out to their audience? But even more importantly… How do they hold themselves accountable to reach the goals that they create for themselves?

What is accountability?

Accountability is: The obligation of an individual or organization to account for its activities, accept responsibility for them, and to disclose the results in a transparent manner. It also includes the responsibility for money or other entrusted property.

More than likely, every successful person has a person (or group of people) in their corner to hold them accountable for the tasks that they need to complete to reach their goals.

So what happens when you find a mentor… who holds you accountable… What’s next?

What does that mean?

What is the coachable definition?

Being coachable means putting that trust in that mentor or group of mentors to take yourself to the next level! It means putting feelings aside and getting the job done! It means being transparent with yourself and truthful about your progress towards your goals.

From Coach PJ Piggott, co-founder and executive board member of the non-profit organization Real People Educating Others (RPEO)

“Being coachable means taking advice from a leader or someone that’s putting you in the best situation, and you accepting and trusting their judgement on decisions they are making for you. When being coachable, it’s about humbling yourself to get to the next level.”
