"Why did you hire a coach when you were doing well in your career?"
A question someone asked me in a recent interaction when I was sharing stories around how having a coach helped me.
The answer simply comes from the mode you wish to choose for yourself—the choice between ordinary and extraordinary.
The Maintenance Mode:
Work on things only when they seem to break or are not when they are doing well.
This happens when one believes that he/she is already the best version of self and nothing can be any better.
The Growth Mode:
The belief that the everyday goal is to become a better version of self.
One challenges the person of today for a better version tomorrow.
One believes that there is always room for becoming better.
This is the reason why most international sportsperson or teams continue to have a coach even when they are at the top of their game.
They focus on becoming a better version of themselves.
Ask this to yourself today; what is your most preferred mode.
