We all have something that we’re known for. That we’re fairly good at. Coaching is what I do.

But years ago when my wife signed me up to coach my five year old son's flag football team, that was a completely different story.

So what do you do when you're thrown into unexpected waters? Now you're in Open water and the ocean and the waves are coming, do you still remember how to swim?

And even though you do, it’s still a choice in those moments. You can stop paddling. Stop fighting. Just let go and drown. Some voice in the back of your head is whispering to you, “hey, that would be the much easier option.”

You can doggy paddle or float, using just enough effort to stay above the surface. Or you can remind your body and your mind that you know exactly what to do. You lean in and you go. 

That was the decision I made eight years ago. First season was a disaster, but then shortly after I started to find my sea legs. I started to find my breaststroke. I started to figure some things out. I remembered I had the skills to make this happen. 

Today, not only am I still coaching, but now I coach other coaches on how to step onto the field with competence, how to brave those treacherous waters with confidence, not just floating through it. I empower these coaches to dive in, so they can impact not only those kids, and yes, their parents, but their entire community.

Sometimes we forget how capable we really are, just because you're thrown into a deeper pool of water, Doesn't mean you don't know how to swim and swim well.

So make the decision, make that choice to lean in, make the most, not only the situation, but the role that you're in, because you are exactly where you're meant to be.

Start kicking, start breathing, and you’ll be swimming like you never swam before.

We’ve all heard the quote “believe you can and you’re halfway there,” by Theodore Roosevelt. Napoleon Hill says, “you can do it if you believe you can.”

Believe in yourself, trust yourself, because you are more capable than you can imagine.

Remember, you have the power to shape your destiny, so go out there and make it happen.
