There's numerous high level strength and conditioning coaches/trainers I admire and have the utmost respect for and Dan John would have to be at the TOP of that list.
With this being said I would like to share with my readers a quote from Dan
John that is worth etching into your brain:
"THE KEY TO BEING A GREAT COACH IS TO NEVER THINK YOU'RE TOO GOOD TO LEARN AND CHANGE"
Not only does this apply to being a great coach it just as easily applies to athletes as well. There's certain individuals out there today who believe that the buck stops with them and that everyone else is wrong and deluded. The sad truth is these individuals will never reach their goals much less help anyone else achieve theirs. They spend so much time trying impress others with their knowledge that they miss out
on many opportunities to learn from others including their own clients.
There's much I could say here but I believe my point is made. Try and have a growth mind set (what can I learn from this) and avoid the fixed mind set ( I already know everything). If you're willing to learn by listening and sharing knowledge your whole
outlook and progress will dramatically increase towards your strength and fitness goals.
One last thing, if anyone claims to have ALL the answers and try and teach you that only they have the best system out there and everyone else is wrong, AVOID this type of individual and their thinking. It will drag you down and keep your goals in a negative bubble unable to escape.
Hope this quote from a GREAT coach helps you move towards your goals.
Stay STRONG and may your mind grow along with your body!!!
