on in the piece, maybe about:

that'd be a really important question to ask when you win. You're looking for a coach, if you ever do is like what, what are they actually helping me with. Because if they're steering you in a direction, that doesn't feel quite right, well, then they're not the right person, and they're probably not the right coach for anyone, it's being able to have a safe space for you to navigate and for you to find what the right way is, and to identify what might be getting on the road so that you can get those obstacles out of the way and be able to move forward to what it is that you want to know that you're supported to know that you are validated that you are taking the right steps. So you can have that ability to back yourself. So you can realize that you have everything that you need within you. And so you no longer have those, that feeling of inadequacy of not being good enough to do certain things, you won't have that feeling again, you'll have all of the confidence in yourself to going after what it is that you want to be able to live life on your terms to have that freedom of your future, was one of the massive motivators for me when I got started, is like I'm in this job. And I'm restricted on what I can do, how I spend my hours each day, how much income I can have, how much freedom I can have in so many different levels. Now, I'm not saying that you have to leave your job and go find a go start a business because not about but it's like living life on your terms, it means that you can find the job that's right for you, you can change what's going on in your current job to make it fit for you. It can change in all areas of your life, to make it fit for you, just for you. And that doesn't mean at the expense of others, it can be both, you can have what you want. And also allow the other people in your life to get what they want as well. They're not mutually exclusive. And it's one of the big challenges. People think, Oh, if I go and do this, this, this and this, it's going to be selfish, and then maybe my partner is going to miss out maybe my kids are going to miss out now everyone's gonna get more of what they want. When you take the right steps, and you're doing it with the right intention. And that's what's possible for you in your life. It's one of the greatest joys I get in helping people is to help them see that what they want is possible and it will actually strengthen their all of their relationships, and everything that they do. So if you're like Roger Federer, and you want to be better and you want to continue to win in whatever area of your life that you want to win it and find yourself a coach, find yourself a mentor, find yourself a confidant is going to help you without the emotional attachment help you get to exactly where you want to get by empowering you to be able to actually back yourself and do it yourself.
