I promised about a week ago that I’d do a short post on what Life Coaching actually is. As you can appreciate I’ve been a little busy with work and Anabelle (just can’t keep away from that little cutie ;o) but I’ve found some time tonight while Sam watches So You Think You Can Dance and I’ve had just about enough of channel 7’s bias towards showing the Olympic Swimming events over anything else… I mean c’mon there is more to the OLYMPIC GAMES than swimming people!
Anyway I digress…
Life Coaching is all about helping people to achieve something they want. It’s about helping people think about what it is they really want out of life and helping them to realise their Vision and then helping them to set realistic goals that will lead them to achieving that Vision. It can be as little or as large as you like, the key of a Life Coach is to provide ‘coaching’ and support as you make your way towards your goals.
Why would I need a Life Coach?… That is an excellent question! Have you ever tried to make a change in your life, have it go great for 3-6 weeks and then the old habits come back and you dump the whole thing? This is where a Life Coach does their thing… we come along side you to encourage you and keep you acountable for reaching your goals. We can also help you to redefine your goals as your situation changes, life rarely goes to plan we all need to be flexible.
Ever had that feeling that something is just not right, but can never figure out what you need to do to fix it? That’s where a Life Coach can help you to identify the area(s) that’s bugging you and help you to grow as a person. Life is what we make of it! Sure we can sit around and let life happen to us or we can get out there and do what we want in life, achieve what we desire and get the most out of life that we can. A Life Coach’s job is to help you live a kick butt life, a life that you can be proud of!
Life Coaches are here to help you get that promotion, better that relationship, be a better person, lose those extra kilos or figure out what you want to do with your life. Life Coaches are here to support and encourage, our job is to help you SUCCEED!
As I mentioned in an eariler post, i’m working towards my own Life Coaching business. I’d love to hear from anyone who is a Life Coach or would like more info on being coached or just wants to have their 2 cents ;o) Fire away!
