The Importance Of Having A Coach

It’s true: People at the top of their game rarely do it alone. They always have the best team pushing and challenging them to new heights.

Since the very beginning, successful people around the world in every field imaginable had coaches in their corner lead them to where they want to go. The truly smart ones know the benefit of keeping coaches around- even when they reach their final destination.

Because there’s ALWAYS more to learn, and there’s always room for improvement.

The right coach has the ability to pull out the best in people by asking the right questions, allowing you to discover the answers, and helping you to see yourself better than you are.

No matter what you do, or plan on doing: Never underestimate the importance of having a coach… the RIGHT coach behind you!

TEACHERS: Why A Little Encouragement Can Do Wonders

Shawn Byfield teaches the next generation of dancers.

Hey teachers, a little encouragement can go a long way!

Never underestimate the power of your words with your students. The words that come out of your mouth matter. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it… But some of it will *actually* stick!

Encouragement is always memorable. So try your best to make sure whatever you DO say, sticks for the right reasons.

Just Got Off Stage? Why Congratulations Are In Order

Shawn Byfield leading host speaker and coach

Super Congratulations! You Did It!

Ok… So what did you do exactly?

Here’s what you did: You showed up. You got on stage and shared your passion. You should be extremely proud of yourself! Why?

Because sometimes, those nerves suck.

But look- despite being nervous, you did it! You got up there despite feeling shaky, worried, palms & armpits sweating, thinking you might forget something. I get that. Totally normal.

 But Did You Know?

Did you know being on stage is a really big deal?

Did you know that many people are afraid to just speak in front of their best friends? Or afraid to make a toast? Or get up and talk in front of a group in general?

Meanwhile here YOU are, in front of a crowd of a FEW HUNDRED people you’ve never met, being vulnerable, DANCING, sharing something so personal that means the world to you.

I’m so proud! You got up there and showed the world your bravery.

Yes… YOU ARE BRAVE.

Don’t ever forget that. Remind yourself every day when you wake up and before going to bed. It will make a difference in your life, I guarantee it.

Now Here’s Where We Get Deep:

You have a gift. You absolutely, truly do.

And your gift can make a difference. Want some even better news? Everyone around you has a gift, too. I challenge you to use your gift to inspire others to get on the same stage as you.

Part of your purpose is to SHARE that gift with as many people as possible. Yes sometimes that’s scary…

…BUT! What if you could brighten someone else’s day by sharing what YOU love?

How Would That Make You Feel?

Sometimes, it takes Someone Special Like You to inspire a friend to share THEIR gifts. Because who knows…

…One day they may turn to you and say, “Because of you, I CAN. Because of you, I AM BRAVE. And because you YOU, I can’t wait to do more! Thank you for allowing me to be ME.”

Congrats to you. Keep being brave, because you’re making a difference.

Shawn Byfield =)
