What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is a professional similar to someone who helps you fulfill your potential by paying attention to the smallest detail in your everyday life and achieving any personal goal. Unlike other counseling, therapy, mentoring, consulting or advising, life coaching is a two way communication that allows you to realize your own potential and make changes in your life to accommodate successes and other essential milestones.
Life coaching mainly addresses goals and ambitions related to your personality. While these goals can be professional or personal in nature, a life coach can help bring about personal changes to influence these successes. By changing your personality or outlook on certain matters, you can create the best version of yourself and achieve your goals of changing your career, acing that interview, finding a life partner or even solving an ever-present problem.
What does life coaching entail?
Life coaching can include helping clients with a wide spectrum of issues. Whether they are facing difficulties at a new workplace or struggling to maintain a good relationship, regular life coaching can help you keep your life in perspective.
Life coaches deal with situations like:
- Stress management and finding a balance
- Spiritual as well as personal growth
- Maintaining intimacy and relationships
- Planning and development of career
- Development of entrepreneurial spirit
- Time management and motivation
- Balancing family life and parenting
- Harnessing creativity for professionals
- Managing budgeting and finances
- Managing health and fitness
- Keeping a healthy lifestyle and aging gracefully
- Accepting and respecting yourself
A life coach believes that the power to transform lives lies with the person themselves. However, in most cases, they do not realize their potential or simply feel too complacent to make changes. With life coaching, you can determine your goals, desires, strengths and weaknesses to find out exactly how you can use different skills and strengths to achieve your goal. A life coach simply helps you understand the potential rather than provide quick shortcuts or solutions.
Signs that you may need a life coach
While there are no formal procedures or medical diagnoses to determine whether or not you need a life coach, you can follow a number of telling signs. Ultimately, the final decision on whether or not you should hire a life coach depends on you. A professional and experienced life coach can help you with a number of challenges like:
- Your need for more happiness
- Eliminating low self esteem
- Feeling overwhelmed with everyday tasks
- Loss of purpose or meaning in life
- Lack of support in personal or professional sphere
- Lack of motivation to improve health
- Lack of direction in career or love life
- Need for support during trying times
- Coping with deadlines and multitasking
If you feel discontent or unhappy in one or more aspects of your life and actively want to change it, a little professional help can go a long way.
Connecting with your life coach
A little preparation before you visit a life coach can also prove helpful. Before you panic about your future and rush through different professionals, it is important to introspect. Figure out exactly what you need out of your life coach. Write down your current challenges and concerns and the goals you want to achieve.
When your life coach analyses your state of mind as well as your plans for the future, they may offer valuable advice and sometimes constructive criticism to help you cope with different aspects of your professional or personal life. By keeping an open mind about your shortcomings and remaining willing to change for the better, you can transform your life with life coaching.
