There is a lot of hype about life coaching and you might be wondering why? There may be several reasons why you need a life coach to help with different areas of your life. We’ve summarized the top 3 reasons why individuals seek the help of a professional life coach. If you could use help in any of these areas, you need a life coach!
Here are 3 reasons why you need a life coach in your life:
1. It helps us get the most out of all areas of our lives.
Life coaching is about looking at where you are now and where you want to be in each area of your life. You need a life coach to help you explore and set goals in these areas as well as help you achieve them. An added benefit of setting goals with this holistic approach is that it helps you to achieve balance because you are recognizing areas that might be neglected or that might be getting a disproportionate amount of your attention. Treat your life the same way you would buying a new car. Use the same time, money and research that goes into this choice. When car shopping you determine your unique needs, compare cars and car features. But when it comes to our lives we walk around blindly hoping we will get it right. A coach will help you actively create all parts of your life.
Areas life coaching explores:
- Romantic Relationships
- The area you live in (home, work, country, city, neighbourhood, etc.)
- Fun and recreation
- Personal growth
2. There are reasons why it is so hard to follow-through on your new years resolutions and a life coach can help.
Life coaches are experts in follow-through. We understand human behaviour and why it is so hard. We know how exactly how to help you work through it. Getting started on goals, staying motivated, dealing with outer and inner challenges such as fear of failure that get in the way of you reaching your goals are where we help most. These are common times when most people get stuck, especially during new years resolutions. When things get tough most people don’t have the tools to work through it, learn from it and keep moving forward. Most people give up. Life coaching will teach you how to get into an action-learning growth cycle where you will reflect and learn from your experiences and actions. You need a life coach to fill your tool belt with the tools that will allow you to learn to support and do it yourself next time.
3. It will make you feel great!
Life coaching improves confidence and self-esteem, increases life satisfaction and happiness levels, lowers stress levels and helps you have a more peaceful mind. This, in turn, increases energy, productivity, brings passion and focus to all of your future endeavors and relationships.
