What Can Life Coaching Do For Me?


Washington MonumentA Life Coach provides the support, encouragement, and extra push required to stretch you beyond your comfort zone.  She helps you prioritize, manage time, and maintain clarity needed for continued and new successes. Weekly check-ins keep you accountable to the goals you set.  You and your Coach celebrate victories and troubleshoot challenges.   Problems are faced head-on to develop strategies and solutions that work for you.

You and your Coach will notice the things that are going well!  After all, when was the last time you gave yourself credit for your accomplishments?  There are hundreds of tasks we complete everyday that we take for granted. Notice them, own them, and celebrate them!

It’s true that we all have a wealth of wisdom.  We have vibrant ideas about how we want things to be different in our lives, and perhaps the world. We know we want things to change but we don’t know how or where to start.  Many people have ideas about what to do to make change happen but, it just is not happening yet!

“What can a Life Coach do for me that I can’t do for myself?”.  First, you will spend 45 minutes per week focusing on YOU with your Life Coach.    You will complete an inventory of what gives you energy and determine ways to maximize the things in your life that motivate and inspire you.  You will identify what drains your energy and determine ways to minimize or eliminate the energy drainers that block your path to success.  You will tap into your imagination to envision the future you want.  Experiencing that future place and noticing what’s around you can give you clues to developing the next steps to get there, a.k.a. goals. Establishing weekly, monthly, and quarterly goals with your Coach will keep you motivated, focused, and moving forward.
 

Now go ahead, get comfortable, imagine yourself in your future place.  Tell me what you see, hear, smell, feel, and taste.  What do you notice?  Who is there?  What is there?  How did you get there?  …Now let’s get to work!  Your dreams can come true!

How would your life be different if you had the focus, vision, and energy necessary to define and achieve your goals?

What if you had the reinforcement to strengthen and fortify your intentions to push harder and reach further?

What if you had the support of someone whose sole purpose is to make your dreams a reality?

Life Coaching is exactly that.    It is a partnership in which you and your Coach explore your ambitions, ideas, and vision for your future.   It is an acceleration of clearly defined steps to achieving your personal and/or professional goals.  It bolsters your commitment to be your best!   It actively “de-clutters” your current life to clear the pathway to success.

Through Coaching, you will identify what you really want out of life.  With the support of your Life Coach, you will develop a plan to get it.  Your Coach will hold you accountable to following through on each step while encouraging you to succeed. You will eliminate challenges.  You will celebrate victories.  You will be your best self.
