You will never know just how energized working with a life coach can make you, how sharp and productive you can be, and how much fun you can have in the process until you have experienced it.
Think about it, has there ever been anything in your life you have made a realistic assessment of while standing on the outside, poking it with a stick?
How Do You Know If You Need A Life Coach?
If you are feeling stuck at figuring out what next step you should take, want to get the real results you're looking for or if you need a clearer path to get to where you want to be in life.
You need a life coach.
It’s impossible to make a rational assessment of anything unless you engage with it, explore it, or try it on for size. Just like our noses can't smell that we haven't brushed our teeth for three days even though it is right above our mouths. It is often hard for us to fully assess our situations because we are right in the middle of it.
Our emotions often get in the way and cloud our rational judgment. Often it takes an outside source that has no emotional investment to guide us to a clearer path. A life coach can add great value with experience and a clearer mind.
Even so, if you haven’t ever worked with a life coach, you may have some critical questions about the process.
Here are some of the more common questions:
How do I know Coaching will work for me? You don’t. No two coaches are the same, no two clients are the same, and no two issues that can be resolved with Coaching expertise will be the same.
-Even if your ten best friends rave about their life coach, you will never know for sure if it will work for you until you try it.
Can I afford a Coach? To answer this question, it’s essential to look at the difference a Coach can make in your life or business.
-For example, if your life coach was instrumental in pushing you to see your worth and value to leave a toxic situation that gave you peace of mind and you were able to expand your success in your personal life and career. Would cost even be an issue? Think about your clearer mindset, less stress, better relationships with yourself, family, etc.
This example is not a rarity in coaching. It happens every day all over the world. It happens to people in all walks of life, in all kinds of different circumstances. It can happen to you too, but you have to decide and take action to make it happen.
How can I find the right life coach for me? Precisely the same way you found the right house, the right car, and even the right spouse! You went looking! Nobody knocked on your door with the perfect vehicle, home or wife, did they? Nobody is going to come knocking with the excellent Coach either.
-To get started, determine your criteria for a life coach. Use your contacts to find some referrals.
-You’ll know the right Coach by how you feel about them AFTER you’ve had some interaction with them, not before.
Will a life coach be able to help me? To help you answer this question, find a life coach, and talk with them. Find out what their background is like, ask them how they like to work, find out if they are familiar with people in your kind of circumstances, and ask them what they could do to help you.
-Maybe the first life coach you talk to would be ideal for you. Perhaps it’s the fifth or sixth one you come across.
-You can be sure that there are many life coaches who can help you, and there are life coaches who have dealt with similar circumstances to yours many times. You need to find them!
The Bottom Line
Those who hire life coaches are strong-minded characters. They’re going places and getting things done. They might NOT always know exactly where they are going or exactly what they plan to do, but they have a sense of purpose and a commitment to themselves that can be amplified considerably by working with a life coach that can give them knowledge of experience.
That is why they hire a life coach to get more out of themselves than they ever thought possible by working on their own.
Ask anyone who has had a great life coach for any length of time if they could have done it on their own, without the help of a personal coach, and watch their face light up as they tell you it was the very best decision they ever made. Do your research, and you can find one like this too!
