As a Strength Coach you MUST have a commitment to your students / athletes. Your commitment to helping others succeed will lead to your commitment to seeking greater knowledge. You will always want to better yourself. Bettering yourself leads to bettering others.
Your commitment to your students will help you rise above when you're feeling tired, having a bad day, your girlfriend or boyfriend dumped you, etc. That's what commitment is - putting someone else at a priority level that trumps all else.
If you're tired, no one should know. Problems with a loved one? Oh well, hide it, swallow it, be strong & solve it. It's not anyone's problem but your own. It's time to GIVE to your students.... give em' ALL you got... then give some more.
By the way, have you ever heard of a "quality problem"? They are problems disguised as gifts, they make you a better person, stronger, more character and more appreciative of what you have or don't have. You see them as problems, a smarter, stronger person sees them as challenges. Challenges are presented to us to test our character, ultimately making us a better person.

I recently spoke to a group of CrossFit Coaches and I told them that on a scale of 1 - 10, you gotta be a 20. Sometimes, you just gotta get crazy. That's OK. Normal doesn't cut it, your passion should be exploding out of you.
Of course, in order to have passion you MUST walk the talk and Live The Code. Do you LIVE what you tell your students to do or are you ALL talk?
Check out training footage from some of the Best Underground Strength Coaches I know.... they LIVE the code, you can hear the passion in their voice and see the passion through their training.

Be passionate and bring some intensity to what you do. Did you FEEL the passion & intensity from the above video?
I sure as heck did. I don't have to ask them what they do, they PROVE it and I can feel it thousands of miles away.
Intensity will push you through the tough times when most people quit. Commitment is on your shoulders. In the end, it is up to you to walk the talk and live the code.
