I remember a day and age in my life where I was always trying to do everything all by myself.
I have always wanted to be the best at anything I that I took on...and even today, I catch myself competing for no reason other than to 'win.' That way of being works like quicksand when you are trying to create massive positive impact with others in the world.
I thought being the team captain meant leading from the front.
I thought leading meant doing everything alone and getting others to join you.
I thought being the smartest or best meant standing at the top of the mountain by yourself.
...It was a lonely road and I certainly felt alone.
In 2016, I met Corey. He was a young, ambitious go getter and a beautiful reflection of me and my belief that being a leader meant having it all together and having it handled on your own. He displayed power, passion, and stamina.
Coach Corey spoke of big dreams and as we worked through our 12 month coach training program Accomplishment Coaching, we both learned what leading truly meant: accepting the support of your team.
In our growth and development, we both learned our own lessons in what it looks like to ASK FOR AND RECEIVE support! Today, we are bring the last 2 years of growth in these lessons to you and your dreams!
Coach Corey Cortez is laying out multiple ways to reach your next level of success in today's Wisdom Wednesday! He is dropping tons of knowledge and truths about the ever so important aspect of being supported on your climb! From the company you keep, to the people you share with, to a accountability you create, you will reach your fullest life with a team, not all by yourself.
Corey, myself, and the Heart Unleashed Podcast is part of your support system! We are talking about what is actually looks like to get clear about your goals and surrounding yourself with people who will lift you up.
