Have you ever heard the quote - “Bring your “A” game”?
In todays blog, I share the meaning behind the quote - “Bring your A Game” and how it relates to your confidence.
Bring your A game - a quote fondly used in the sporting arena. Sporting Coaches will often use it to encourage their team members to play at their best, be their best and give the game their all.
When we apply this to a professional environment, workplaces, offices, schools etc. It is often used to encourage people to step up, accept ownership and be the best they can be.
I can remember this one time when I acknowledged that I wanted to make some changes in my life. I was not getting the results I wanted. At the time I wanted to know more about my behaviours and if I could change them.
I explored the personal development space and I said “Yes” to a free seminar that encouraged you to be you, all of you…………this pricked my curiosity.
I committed to the seminar and I held myself accountable to getting all I could from the day.
This seminar and the actions I committed to on the day started my desire to help others explore who they are.
I was in the seminar for less than 2 hours and I had given myself permission to explore who I was in the moment. To acknowledge and accept why and how I did what I did. At the conclusion of the seminar I was committed to learning more about me. I was the only person responsible for changing me…if not me, who.
Shortly after this I had the opportunity to “Bring my A game” and say “yes” to my dream. Consequently I have been a full time coach for 6 years, now with over 10,000 coaching hours to support my learning and my clients.
Bringing my “A” game to my business was the first step to my success. I acknowledged who and where I had been and the many learnings I had experienced along the way. I quickly became aware that being a small business owner I was accountable for it all. The actions I took on a daily basis were responsible for the results I was achieving and would achieve in the future.
I quickly learnt I was accountable, to acknowledge what I knew and I did not know. The most important learning in these days was that I had to take action. I had to make it happen. I had to be confident in myself and what I was doing - The 3 “A’s” to my confidence.
I wonder how your life will change when your “Bring your “A” game”, to all that you do?
