Do I have to take the stairs?

Updated: Oct 22, 2022

Zig Ziglar once said “There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.” That is what I am trying to teach my students. No shortcuts to success. This came home to me the other day when I was talking to another career coach who mentioned that she was aware that one of my students wanted another coach because he felt I wouldn’t be able to connect him with the right people who would help him become a professional baseball player. I guess he was hoping to find an elevator. My student and I got through that dream and I am still his coach. But how many other students want a short cut.
