𝑫𝒂𝒅𝒔: 𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝑪𝒂𝒏𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝑩𝒆 𝑻𝒐𝒐 𝑷𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝑨𝒔𝒌 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝑯𝒆𝒍𝒑 𝑻𝒉𝒆
Another moment of clarity from last weekend’s climb.
The man pictured with me is Dyllan, he was one of our guides, the one that stayed with Steve and I.
Sometimes, in life, it’s easy to take for granted that which you have done for so long.
For example, it can be hard to remember what it was like the first time I set foot in a gym some twenty plus years ago. At the time, I was insecure and had no clue what I was doing.
One of the things I realized when I started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 3 years ago was how I felt like a fish out of water for the first 3 months. ‘Man, this must be what our new clients feel like sometimes,’ I thought.
It's a good thing to be humble and to be humbled.
Whelp, on the Mount Washington climb, I was chuckling as you can see in some of the photos on the steeps, every time I thought of Dyllan and his role as my Coach.
I am not sure I could have made it through the 3 ‘steeps’ without his guidance. He was my Coach and I leaned on that pretty hard.
A Coach is someone that can guide you from point A to point B, a point that you cannot get to on your own.
Dyllan knew I was struggling mentally and he was calm and patient, making me feel confidence with each step.
As a dad, there is much you don’t know and it’s okay to admit that.
I have a list of areas I am weak in, things I should know how to do.
I have always hired my own personal Coach because I know that I don’t know it all.
But sometimes as a Dad, that means asking other dads that have certain skills if they can show you or help you to figure out handyman work, building stuff, etc.
Suga Shane and I have a good friend, Richie, who’s been mentoring us in being better outdoorsmen.
Just as Newell Strength helps dads learn their own fitness and learn how to fast and learn more about mindset, there Coaches and mentors that can help you learn what you need to learn.
Dyllan helped me go one step at a time, he helped to reassure me and he didn’t judge, all qualities a great Coach must have.
Remember, all skills can be learned.
It’s up to you to ask for help.
