THE COACHING EXPERIENCE
"Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours." - Vera Nazarian
I often get asked why do I coach?
When I was 15, I knew I wanted to be a physical therapist. I started volunteering and looking at colleges at an early age. I was not the NORM. But, I knew I wanted to help people. I was interested in making them feel better…but didn’t want blood to be involved. So physical therapy seemed like the perfect choice. Until the rules and regulations got stricter, the reimbursement got lower, and the red tape got longer. The paperwork got bigger and patient contact got smaller. Now my job was just to get patients covered by their insurance…which meant hours of justification for their needs. I had way less time to actually help. I became a paper pusher.
Enter the coaching world…
For the first time in a long time, I get to help people with no strings attached. I get to start at the root of the problem and work my way towards healing. I get to take my time. I get to create relationship and connection. I’m not bound by insurance or paperwork, I get to choose how often or how much care is needed. I’m involved in real life change, because there are no walls….just individuals on the same quest to feel their best. I get to be my own boss.
For the first time in a long time, I get to DO WHAT I LOVE and get paid. Isn’t that the American dream? To never work a day in your life because you LOVE what you do? To take what you’re passionate about and turn it into your career, where you call the shots and you decide your future? I say, YES!
One thing I know, you don’t need to be a physical therapist to coach…or a personal trainer. You don’t even have to know what you’re doing…you just have to be willing to learn. You have to care. And you have to be willing to put yourself out there in order to create change. It’s not easy but no one said it would be. It just needs to be worth it.️
