What is a Life Coach?
Life Coaching 101
I’ve had people ask me, “what is a personal life coach?” It’s a great question and one that I thoroughly enjoy answering. Think of a life coach as your own personal tour guide, walking along side you on your journey of self-discovery as you set and achieve goals. These goals could be anything from taking care of yourself better, i.e, developing healthier eating habits or exercising more often to changing careers or improving job skills. A life coach is your accountability partner, helping you stay focused and on track by assisting you in navigating the pathway that leads to the results you want.
A Life Coach will guide you through the process by asking the right questions which will prompt you to ponder and unpack, what it is that you need or want to change. Once you have identified your goals, a life coach will help navigate you through the process of designing an action plan that is specific and attainable. Once the plan is put into place, it’s up to you to begin the work but instead of doing it alone, you now have someone to provide encouragement while helping you stay motivated.
While friends and family can be a wonderful source of strength and support for someone who desires change in their life, having a personal life coach can be a fantastic additional resource. Life Coaches carry a wealth of expertise and experiences which they incorporate into the services they offer. Since this is their living, they are focused on you and your success and can provide you with honest feedback as to your progress.
We all have purpose and desire to be the best version of ourselves. And sometimes it takes authentic conversation with a Life Coach to help you realize your potential. Life is too short to simply just be; complacent with what’s comfortable. I encourage you to reflect on the life you are living, is there something you’ve always wanted to do? Do you have career goals not yet realized? Do you want to commit to a better way of living, physically, mentally and spiritually?
Then, what are you waiting for?
