So, which coach training is right for you?
Pick one you can afford.
Pick one where you connect with the teacher.
Pick one that works for you geographically.
Pick one rooted in the application that you want to practice.
And having learned and practiced…let go!
Mastery is like driving a powerful sports car and taking the turn off the highway to an unknown mountain road, leaving the discipline of lanes and speed limits for the twisting, undulating road with a surprise around every corner. You no longer mutter “mirror, signal, maneuver.” Your senses observe and integrate sight, sound and feel—the shadow across the apex of the next curve, the feedback of tire grip through the wheel, the twitch of the chassis through your seat, the growl of the engine and gears as you instinctively allow your body to do the right thing without consciously thinking about it as your entire being is focused on progressing forward as quickly as possible.
When you have this experience you wish the road would never end.
You can’t learn to handle the mountain road while you stay on the highway.
Take the turn. Try the mountain road. You won’t get every corner, every gear change, every line perfect; but the road never ends.
