Don't be afraid to ask for what you want

Apr 04, 2021

If you never ask, you might never get it.

I know it can be scary, uncomfortable, nerve wracking to talk to your coach and ask for what you want, but here’s the thing…

Your coach has all of your other teammates and things on their plate. Don’t take it personally, but you might not be top of mind all the time.

That’s why it’s so important to ask for what you want. Which usually is a conversation with your coach (or teacher or boss or etc.).

Think about the direction of your goals and dreams so you know what you want to ask for.

The other really important thing about asking for what you want is that you are speaking what you want into existence. Physically telling someone else. The reason this is important is because you’re not only thinking about it, but this is the first step of taking action towards what you want.

So, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone in order to really go for what you want.

I can clearly remember the times I had to get out of my comfort zone with my head coach at Northwestern, Kate Drohan (sometimes I even had the twin coaches together - double trouble with Caryl too).

One thing I loved about Kate as a coach, is she took time with each of us one on one. Once a quarter we met. To be honest, I was always super nervous about this and kind of dreaded it. I made it out to be way scarier than it ever was though. At the end of every one of those meetings, I felt better. I felt relieved. I felt heard. I felt like she knew where I was at. I felt like I knew what she wanted out of me.

It might be uncomfortable, but go into the conversation prepared. Write down what you want. What you want to share. And just do it because you won’t regret it!
