If you are looking for competence in business… Have you ever wondered if you’re resistant to being coached?
I was asked this question for the first time in over 30-years early last year, and I’ve got news for you… If you’re not being coached right now, you might be resistant to it. AND… If you’re resistant, your competence over time will suffer.
Athletes, actors, almost any professional that you can think of. And not just one coach, either. All sorts of them, from health coaches to mindset coaches to wealth coaches and everything in between.
Why is that? Keep reading…
Because you can only know so much. With life being so busy, you need someone who will hold you accountable – and that’s what a good coach does. A good coach doesn’t necessarily give you information. Instead, they help you seek it out for yourself… Which leads to you having greater competence in business.
If all of this sounds great, you might still be wondering why you’re resistant to being coached. Let’s think about that.
What’s going on inside your head? Does your inexperience prevent you from seeking a coach? Or, perhaps you’ve reached a point where you believe you don’t need one?

Let me be honest with you… If the latter is your reason: You don’t want to be held accountable, and you know a coach will ask that of you.
Being resistant to coaching is synonymous with being resistant to success and competence in business. That’s the hard truth.
Look, we get it…
Not being successful is easy. You don’t have to work hard, and you can be lazy. Nobody’s going to bother you.
So if that’s what you want… I’m not sure what you’re doing here. It takes effort to read, and you already know where you stand. A lot of pressure comes with success, so it’s clear why it’s easier to admit defeat, and confine yourself to the comfort of conformity.
But here’s the thing…
Much like carbon turning into a diamond, great things can happen under pressure. If you’re in the right environment and stick with it, you will evolve. You will shine. You will thrive.
By being resistant to coaching, you’re giving priority to the trivial distractions of your life more important than your dream – and that dream is who you are. It’s what you stand for. It’s what you were put on this earth to do.
If the past couple years have taught me anything, it’s that no one can get through this life alone. You can try to get competence in business on your own, and… Most people do not succeed. Most people need coaches – you need a coach, and I do, too.
Be willing to step up, stop making excuses, and force yourself to be accountable. Find good people and face the music. Don’t run from it!
Let others help you get there, and you will be great.
