You are helping
At the same time, you may not be feeling the love yourself. “Am I really making a difference?” you wonder. That is a common place people land when they are in one of the helping professions. Teachers, parents, pastors… all of them sometimes wonder about the lasting impact of what they are doing. Even as they pour time and energy into those efforts, the results may not always be clear.
And coaching is definitely a helping profession. Even if you don’t hear it enough, what you do matters. Your role is the consummate behind-the-scenes part–and that part is crucial. You are the encouragement, the motivation, the problem-solving, the strategic planning that goes into the big visions your clients are executing. Even though you won’t see the spotlight, you can be assured that you are a difference-maker.
Your service matters
We know that what we do as coaches and the contributions we make are not for show but in service to the God we worship:
“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:2-4)
We see you. We know that what you are doing as a coach matters, and we are thankful
