As someone who’s been training for quite a while and accumulated tons of experience, you finally became a coach… And that was, actually, quite a while ago in and of itself; months and years passed, and you’ve poured your heart and soul into teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to everyone who’s been interested in it.
However, you are now feeling burned out. The motivation simply isn’t there anymore and the fire in your heart you’ve once felt for BJJ seems to have been extinguished.
Don’t worry – there’s a solution for this. Nick “Chewy” Albin shares his 2 tips for going through burn out as a coach.
2 THINGS TO DO WHEN FEELING BURNED OUT AS A COACH
The first thing you should do when you feel like not coaching is to actually move a bit. Even when you feel completely burned out, putting your body into motion will make you feel better – and, therefore, it’ll turn you into a much more motivated coach.
And secondly, you should try and remember why you’ve started doing this in the first place. And not just that… But you should also think about the people you’re benefiting with your job (or hobby). The numerous individuals whose lives you’re changing for the better through Arte Suave; who are healthier and feel so much better than the case would’ve been otherwise.
For, it’s not just you who’s important in the whole equation. You bear the responsibility of the people that train with you and who trust you – which isn’t to be taken lightly. And which, even though it seems like a heavy burden to carry, represents an opportunity to change the world for the better.
