- You need to look after YOURSELF first and actually adhere to all those HEALTH, FITNESS and SCIENCE principles before looking after anyone else. That does not only make you a better leader, but also simply a balanced and authentic human being.
- Speaking of AUTHENTICITY – it is TOUGH to listen to a coach or trainer of any sort if they are e.g. slightly overweight and not that fit themselves, or a psychologist if they keep losing control of their emotions all the time. The more you adhere to your OWN PRINCIPLES, the more TRUST you will gain from your athletes.
- There is literally ZERO reason for anyone to trust you if you just get to know them. Neither a love interest, a potential business partner, nor any player or team that you just get to see for 2 days. REMEMBER that at all times when coaching, mentoring or training people!
