Everyone Needs a Coach
Tiger Woods is arguably one of the best golfers of all time. One of the greatest observations that stand out for me is that no matter what level of success he has achieved, he has always used a coach, from the early days with his dad to the coach he has today. The names may change from time to time, but he always has one. Ponder this: Tiger Woods is taking constructive feedback from a golfer who is less skilled than he is. Imagine for a moment what it would be like if you were one of the best in the world at what you do for a living. Would you be humble enough to admit that you can improve?
Hiring a financial “coach” (planner, advisor, etc.) allows an unbiased individual to point out mistakes that you may never see and help you potentially improve upon your results. As technology, research, and the financial world become more complex, the need for a professional advisor increases. There are so many options in modern life that is it can seem utterly bewildering. Do we invest in http://www.bullionvault.com/; or should we be looking to the ‘emerging markets’? A coach can help us work our way through this thicket of choices and help break down the situation into comprehensible units.
Wherever you are in your financial life (success or failure or in between), you can always do better than where you are today. If you are committed to integrating your personal faith into your financial plan and are in it for the long haul, you should get a personal coach. You need feedback on your progress toward getting better. Successful people and those who want to be are usually the type of people who hire a financial planner.
