Behind a successful person is someone who helped them get to where they are. Everyone has their driving force that takes them to great heights in their life. In sports a great coach can move you towards success and a great drive for more. In life a better half can share with you, listen and stand behind you in your life to reach ultimate success. Can others really push us to where we really need to be or should we find our strength within?

Coaches will always push you to your limit before you can relax, and they also never let you relax. Their main goal is success for you and for the team, and of course the recognition is something for them to be proud of too. Itís a great drive to have a trainer who has experience to take us to new heights and new levels. Of course pushing yourself to your limit sometimes doesnít sound as good as relaxing and eating ice cream, which my coach will be glad to read.

Another half can take away the pressures of dealing with stresses on your own which can lead to a drive for success. Real success comes from commitment and becoming the best you can be. Being able to share your thoughts with someone helps to evaluate where you need to be and how you can be better. What is success in life?

Success is knowing who you really are and knowing that you can stand on your own. Success is being who you want to be with no regrets and putting yourself out there sometimes pushing past all barriers. Learning to be your own person is knowing that sometimes you are the best at what you do, even if it doesnít fit everyone elseís standards.

Whether itís in sports, life, understanding is what takes us to our goals. Your life can be whatever you want it to be, and sometimes choices make it hard because there are so many. We all know the driving force behind all choices is our heart. Since the heart is so complicated, success may be a mystery. In the end all it takes to be everything you need to be are the driving forces behind your goals and a semi-understanding of the heart.
