Who Can Benefit from Life Coaching?
I found a great post about life coaching and its benefits by geek granny. I love how she describes what life coaching is and what it can do for you. Here are some interesting excerpts:
Life is a skill that can be acquired and often you need help to learn this skill. Like any skill you desire to learn or become more proficient there are many ways to do this. If you want to become a better golfer you can hire a golf pro. If you want to become a better singer you perhaps hire a voice tutor.
We think nothing of paying someone to teach us how to do what we want to do better. That includes everything from cooking, writing, or a professional trainer to help us sculpt our body.
This is good. Of course, we can attempt to teach ourselves through books, videos and lots of practice. But most of the time if we’re serous about furthering a need or talent we must seek professional assistance.
Learning how to live life is somehow viewed differently.
Great point. We pay for all sorts of trainers that are commonly accepted, but when it comes to life coaching or life training, its somehow different and perhaps even viewed as a deficiency if used. Why? We can all improve. We can all benefit.
True. Life coaching is not well understood and not well known.
Wow. This is so true and sometimes hard to face or even realize.
Making the decision is the huge first step we all have to make. It’s common to want to have a better life but taking steps to do something to achieve it is a different story. It’s hard. Fear of failure may deter us. Feelings of hopelessness, lack of skill or any number of excuses may stop us.
Living the life you desire can come with a high price tag. But, if you’re willing to pay the price in money, effort and dedication then it’s time to define your life on your own terms and take control. You understand you’ve reached the point in your life that you must feel happier and that life can be rich and dreams realized.
Money is the least of it. It takes effort. People are always willing to throw money at a problem thinking they are doing something to solve it. They’re not, they’re often fooling themselves. It takes dedication and determination to solve your problems and make a better life for yourself.
Therapy has its place and by all means if you feel like you need it, get it. But life coaching is not the same thing. Life coaching takes you beyond your current state to a higher and better place. Its not therapy. You should be ready to make things better and move forward with your life before seeking out a life coach. If you have deeper issues therapy may help. If you are looking to get out of a rut, better yourself, and achieve your goals, life coaching is something for you!
