How to Take a Cue Coaching cues help you learn to lift and build trust with your coach. Sometimes you’ll expect yourself to fail and you’ll visualize what that will look like and how you’ll have to tell your coach about it. You’ll act on that visualization instead of the cue and you will prove yourself right, as someone who fails at this lift. Other times you’ll expect yourself to nail the lift (not the cue). So instead of letting the cue be loud, your ego gets loud, and you fail to use the tool at hand. And this really stings if you miss the lift. Now you’ve missed the lift and the opportunity to practice the cue.
