A Quote from a Great Coach Got Me a' Thinkin'

Who saw me at my best โ€“ even if I didnโ€™t know I wasnโ€™t yet there (note the double negative). These coaches and teachers โ€“ I like to say โ€“ held me up to my highest possibility.ย They didnโ€™t let me reside in my circumstance or comfort, and they encouraged or motivated me to step up to a better version of me.


Mrs Marshall โ€“ 4th grade

Mr Nazario โ€“ High School


They were not always easy. They were memorable. They helped me be better, stronger, more impacting. Ironically, I also look back at the experiences with these coaches as some of my most energized and fulfilled times.


These are the types of teachers, coaches and leaders that help us flex new and useful muscles; the muscles we use to build new habits that drive success.


Today I strive to be THAT coach.


Who are some of the teacher and coaches who have challenged you to be better than you thought possible?
