If you were part of a 4 x 100 relay team which leg would you run?
I’d be first out of the gates. I love the start.
When running a relay it’s common sense to not look back or you risk getting passed up.
But how often do we look back on our lives and dwell on mistakes, misfortunes and plain ol’ bad luck?
At a certain point, asking “why” something happened is the wrong question to ask.
Instead turn the page and focus on what’s in front of you.
One of the reasons I chose coaching as a career was because I hired one earlier in life. I loved how my coach worked on my agenda, goals and pace. Experiencing that from the client’s seat made me want to switch chairs so I eventually did.
Coaching is about the future, finding solutions and asking “how.”

Don’t waste your time looking back when you can be moving forward.
Starting a new chapter in life is about attitude. It’s what you can control 100%.
