In another article I discussed "The Power of a Coach" – and how people who…
A typical run-of-the-mill loan officer just quotes interest rates and fees.
Your obvious choice is the power you get with a Real Mortgage Consultant.
Your Real Mortgage Consultant is a teacher – educating you on mortgages, how they work, and helping you do what is best for you.
Your Real Mortgage Consultant is a guide – a guide showing you the best, easiest way through the mortgage loan process.
And your Real Mortgage Consultant is a coach – a coach dedicated to your success.
The power of coaching – do you need a coach?
Instinctively, you might say ‘no’ – but think about it.
Successful people have coaches
Anyone who is successful at anything has a coach – or many coaches.
Professional sports teams have coaches. Even though the professional players are infinitely better than you and I are at what they do, they still have coaches to enhance their performance. And it was coaches who helped them get there in the first place.
Take football for example. They have offensive coaches, defensive coaches, linebacker coaches, quarterback coaches, wide receiver coaches, strength coaches . . . Typical professional football teams have as many as 24 coaches.
Not only at the professional level, but at every level the athlete passed through – youth leagues, high school, college . . . At every level, coaches helped the player improve, much more than the player could have done alone.
Professional golfers have coaches. So do tennis players. Hockey teams, baseball teams . . .
Outside of sports, you have business coaches, speaking coaches, executive coaches, performance coaches, career coaches, personal trainers, nutrition coaches, financial coaches, relationship coaches, communication coaches . . .
Today, there are even life coaches . . . coaches to help you have a better life . . .
As you can see, coaches are everywhere.
Successful people have coaches. People who fail probably do not have a coach – they just make it up as they go along.
Why is it so important to have a coach?
What coaches do for you
Let’s think of it in terms of a sports coach, let’s say a quarterback coach in football . . .
A coach will watch the quarterback drop back from the offensive line, throw the ball, and follow through. The coach will notice every little detail and make suggestions. Then watch the player do it again, more suggestions. And repeat it, over and over again. Constant vigilance, observing, suggesting, watching, more suggestions.
And with this feedback and repetition, the player improves.
Without the coach, the player has no idea what he is doing right and what he is doing wrong.
He has no direction.
He doesn’t know what to work on.
He doesn’t know what he did right so he can reinforce it.
He may have goals, maybe not. Even if he has goals, does he really have a direct path to get there? Probably not. The coach will help give the player direction, a target to shoot at, and the fastest way to get there.
The coach’s experience helps him know what to look for and how to help the best way.
With the coach, the path to success is a straight line. Without a coach, it’s trial and error, and success may never come.
It’s no different in other areas of coaching.
Let’s say, for example, a personal trainer.
I’ve used the services of a personal trainer. In my case, I knew that I needed the expertise of someone who has studied exercise for years. I knew that I could benefit from that trainer’s knowledge and experience.
I had my goals, I knew where I wanted to go.
But I didn’t know the shortest route to get there. I watched videos and websites online, I looked at books, but there was so much information. Which would apply to me? Which exercises, which routine, would help me get to my goals in the fastest way possible? What would be the shortest straight line to my goals? I didn’t have the time or the knowledge to figure it out. And I was frustrated trying to figure it out on my own.
That is when I decided I needed the help of a coach – a personal trainer.
With his knowledge and years of experience he could show me what to do. That alone would help motivate me. I had been feeling less motivated because I didn’t know if I was even doing the right exercises.
My personal trainer coach provided motivation by giving me assurance that I was doing the most effective exercises.
It would also give me accountability – I knew that I needed to make progress between every visit because my coach would be watching and tracking my progress.
Then during my training sessions, he would watch me do it and make suggestions that would help me improve even faster.
Instead of the winding path that wasn’t really getting me anywhere, now I had a straight line toward my goals.
This is the power of a coach.
This is the difference between the typical run-of-the-mill loan officer who only quotes interest rates and fees but doesn’t really help you . . .
And your Real Mortgage Consultant who will be your coach through the whole process, and after.
For your mortgage . . .
For your personal financial plan . . .
And to coach you on how you can become completely free of all loan payments, typically in about 6-10 years on your current income, including your mortgage.
