The learning process is an expansion of the mind that ensures that growth inspires professional betterment. Not memorizing and copying others...but really understanding and retaining newfound elements that add to your growth, personally and professionally.
Becoming a professional means engaging others to follow you--not simply telling them to follow you. Leaders command attention and raise expectations. Others are attracted to that and will heed.
Finding a trainer that tries and tests every type of exercise modality first on him/herself is key in the real-world training environment. Do it, show it, coach it!
Like crabs in a barrel, there are those that try to pull each other down for their own gain. In any professional, when you help anyone around you, you help the everyone in the profession itself.
The last true piece to the puzzle...becoming a leader that can coach with authority, empathy, and temperament.They will listen because they know you truly care and respect them---nothing to do with your education.
