#CTEDUPowerofCoaching with Mark Albert Morton

May 31, 2020 by Ashley Scott

We love sharing our graduates and lifting them up throughout their coaching journey. Recently on the CTEDU Facebook Page, we had a few graduates share how coaching changed and impacted their lives for the better. Below is a quote from Mark Albert Morton, a CTEDU Graduate and fellow coach. His journey is inspiring, and we hope it encourages you to continue to pursue your passion, and #DoYourLifesWork.

“In August of last year, I started my journey with Coach Training EDU. As I started the Health and Wellness course my life was in disarray from caring for my mom in another state and working in a totally different state. Each week as we learned tools and practiced coaching, I began to personally transform from the coaching sessions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The week we were covering nutrition, John had to fill in for our trainer. I was the model for the session and he personally coached me that night. I’ll never forget how we discussed my addiction to Snickers Ice-cream bars and how I was using it to deal with the stress of maneuvering 3 different states.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To make a long story short, you can see from the picture the transformation. Since that day…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1. I have not had a snickers bar⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. Lost a total of 40 lbs as of today⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3. Ran and Successfully completed my 1st 5k⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

4. Etc, etc, etc⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The work we do is so important to changing lives.” – Mark Albert Morton⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
