14 Habits of World-Class Champions – 5. World-class champions always have mentor(s) and coach

“Without seeking help from any teachers, I… found myself a finalist in the 1994 World Championships. That August, I gave all I had to give. When the contest was finally over, I had not won a trophy. I was disappointed. But my seven-year-old son, Joel, was devastated. ‘Son, it’s okay,’ I told him.  ‘I did my best. There’s always next year.’ At that moment, David Brooks, the 1990 World Champion, literally walked into my life. He gently reached out to me, told me I’d done a fine job, and encouraged me to call him. So I did, the very next day. I realized that if I were going to be a champion I needed a teacher. One who had been where I wanted to be. That phone call changed my life.” -Mark Brown 1995 World Champion of Public Speaking

World-class champions owe their success to the mentors- coach who coached and taught them till they became champions. World-class champions have always known that secret:  if you want to maximize your potential in anything, hire a coach. Coaching is to performance what leadership is to an organization.  A mentor-coach is someone whose judgment you respect always when he says “You can do this!” it strengthens your resolve. A good mentor-coach offers guidance, another viewpoint that helps you reach your goals. A mentor-coach helps you believe in yourself. Make a decision today to seek out some mentors and coaches to work with and become a world-class champion. photo credit http://www.quotehd.com & http://www.lifehack.org
