Being a coach or mentor
is like being a creative artist.
you have a clear vision
of where you want to take your students
of what they are really capable of.
you've paved a similar path
you understand how their challenges feel like
maybe even taste like.
while being in awe of their perseverance
and commitment and openness
in their pursuit to excel.
you admire in patience
because you know and trust
that with consistent practice
and diligent commitment to the training process
in time and place
their dreams will come to life.
it already manifests in
small moments of the training process.
if there is enough awareness
they will already feel it too.
it will propel them forward
make their connection bigger
help them understand more about themselves
and the way they interact with life.
and the moment this all happens
there is an exchange of
pure powerful effortless energy
that doesn't belong to anyone or anything.
or higher power
being in the moment,
whatever you want to name it.
just like what happens between an artist and their creation.
it's all an exchange.
and the teacher becomes
the student becomes
is one of the greatest fulfillments in life.
Hope my little poem inspires you to never give up on your dreams!
