Coachable Mindset

June 26, 2017

Hey, everybody, it is day 34. I have Tony Scotty with me today. We are getting ready for some promo videos that we’re doing. Anyway, today, we’re talking about coaching and mentoring. That is one of the steps to success in creating a life. Whether you want to have a better business, better relationships, a better skill set, you know, more vitality, more health. Coaching is a major key.

Very few successful people get anywhere without a coach, guidance, or perspective. Tony is one of my coaches right here in the real estate world. He’s been blowing it up these last few years, and I’ve been taking notes. I’m one of the most coachable people because I show up and I take notes. What are coaching and coachability? Why is it so important for someone to have a successful outcome?

Well, I think coaching is very important. One aspect is a lot of times you need to fine-tune something. My son is a great example, he’s been playing baseball for about five years, and he’s struggling a little bit on the swing side. It happens as they go through and you get older. So we got him a hitting coach, and all of a sudden, in about two weeks of focusing, his coach got him there.

Well, just like in real estate, you can do real estate coaching, where you have someone who’s already done it already and been through some of the steps that you’re going to go through. If you hear it from them, that mentoring or coaching is going to get you there. That is what I’ve seen happen by having someone there. We’re always looking for coaches, even me too.

Yeah, it’s a big deal. I mean, if you don’t have a coach right now, who’s giving you the new perspective, who’s helping you see something clearly that you might not have considered? I know we have coaches to help give us a competitive advantage like he was talking about with his son. To be able to hit the ball versus crush the ball. Right?

So coaching, who are you getting coached by on something that you want to get better? If you’re not, it’s time to look, it’s time to get a coach, and a lot of people will get hung up in the back. Wow, they cost money, right? Coaches cost money but don’t look at it as an expense, look at it as an investment. It will pay off, it will have dividends, it will have returns, and you will see a better difference.

I think the return on investment you’re going to get from it is much greater than the expense because you’re going to sidestep some of the mistakes. I’m sitting here learning myself to get a couple of tips. It’s coaching. You know, I paid for my trip. I paid for everything to come here. Of course, it’s a business expense, but I’m getting coaching right now. It is this mindset.

So many people show up in the world with a fixed mindset, but the achievers have this coachability mindset. You have to ask yourself when you’re sitting in a room because it’s not always easy with the experience you get. Sometimes, you sit in a room, and you have to remind yourself to be coachable and ask yourself, what is my teachability index?

Am I willing to learn? Am I willing to try new things? Because if not, then a coach will not help you. Here’s one thing I do know, and I appreciate about my coaches, is accountability. When they ask me to do something, I feel that extra effort and energy to go and do what they were saying. That coachability, that accountability is worth more than what I pay for the coaching.

So it works. That accountability is a major key. We’re just wrapping up the day. We spent a ton of the day at the studio. Some New Yorkers were goofing around over there. Appreciate you guys for being here. Aloha. See you guys
