Have you ever felt like you’ve reached your limit? Like you can’t handle any more challenges or responsibilities?
It’s a common feeling, and one that can hold us back from reaching our full potential.
The truth is, our capacity grows by stretching it. We have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones and expand what we believe we are capable of.
It’s not easy. It’s often uncomfortable, even painful at times. And yes, sometimes we might even “fail.”
But every time we take that step forward, we grow. We become stronger, more resilient, and more capable.
It’s like exercising a muscle. The more we use it, the stronger it becomes. And just like with physical exercise, the gains come from pushing ourselves just beyond our current limits.
So, how do we stretch our capacity as coaches?
First, we need to believe in ourselves and our potential. We need to let go of any self-doubt or limiting beliefs that are holding us back.
Next, we need to take small steps outside of our comfort zones. It could be trying a new coaching technique or taking on a client with a unique challenge.
We need to be willing to make mistakes and learn from them. Every “failure” is an opportunity for growth and improvement.
But it’s not enough to simply try new things. We need to measure our progress, tracking what works and what doesn’t.
By doing so, we can optimize our efforts and maximize our growth. And as we continue to stretch our capacity, we’ll find that what once felt impossible is now within our reach.
Remember, it’s not about achieving perfection or never making mistakes. It’s about consistently pushing ourselves to grow and become the best coaches we can be.
So, let’s take that first step outside of our comfort zones and start stretching our capacity today. Who knows what amazing things we’ll be capable of tomorrow!
