STOP AND THINK – Coaches help others do what they don’t want to do in order to achieve what they want to achieve. (Tom Nebel, leadership trainer)

Whether it’s in athletics, the arts, or almost any other profession—strenuous exercise and practice in the endeavor are required for success. Very often, it takes a mentor or coach to enforce the training regimen. The coach lays out the plan and holds the student accountable for carrying it out. Without such encouragement, success might not be achieved.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training (1 Corinthians 9:25). Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things (1 Timothy 4:8).
