Sometimes in our personal or professional lives we need help. Champions count on coaches and mentors to enhance their success and we should do the same thing. However, when the help your getting isn’t helpful, don’t put up with it. Change it.
My girlfriend and her husband struggled in their marriage for years. They finally decided to get help but their first experience with a marriage counselor wasn’t helpful. They tried someone else…still not helpful. They tried a third time and finally found someone without an agenda who actually listened to them. They’re doing much better these days. I wonder what would’ve happened if they stuck with the first person.
When it comes to the coaches/mentors in your life, don’t settle for ‘good enough’. Have the courage to keep looking until the help you’re getting is great.
Bottom line: If your help isn’t helpful, get different help!
