Unhappy, unfulfilled or just unsure – do these words describe how you feel?
Your goal as an individual should be to live life to the fullest, to the best of your potential and at the very least, be happy doing what you’re doing.
If this seems like an impossible feat, then clearly something is amiss, or being overlooked. This is where the power of life coaching comes in.
Whichever aspect of your life you feel lost in, a life coach can provide you with a sense of meaning by using motivational techniques, scientific reasoning, psychology and a lot of other useful coaching techniques.
We understand that a lot of people may think life coaching might not be worth all the hype, or think it’s overrated, or that it might only be for celebrities and public figures.
And while these concerns are certainly understandable, they’re not necessarily true. Unfortunately, there are also lots of misconceptions about life coaching and some people also consider it a taboo, much like talking to psychiatrist or seeking therapy. In response to that, we’d like to tell you that life coaching is for anyone who's looking for a way to reach their goals. Whatever those goals may be, of course well within reason.
A life coach will work with you, according to your convenience and at your pace to reach the finish line. Let’s look at some interesting tactics and exercises they might use to help you reach your goals, and not burn yourself out in the process:
· Understanding you
For a life coach, it’s all about YOU. Any life coach worth their salt will always put you, your needs, your concerns and your growth first. Once you’ve built a good rapport with each other, recognising problem areas and finding appropriate solutions will follow.
· Designing a customised plan
No two people are the same and no two people deal with a setback in the same way. A life coach knows this and will design a regimen that’s specific only to you.
· Breaking barriers
A life coach can help you break mental and emotional barriers that keep you from reaching your full potential.
· Less talk, more action
A life coach believes in results over big talk. They can enable you to change for the better and reach your goals in the most constructive way possible.
· Instilling confidence
Often, the reason why we’re unable to follow through on our goals is because of our lack of confidence which may arise from being around certain people, going through difficult circumstances or having failed in the past. A life coach will help you look past these issues and embrace change and help you improve in the areas you want to.
· Achieving goals
Perhaps the most important aspect of life coaching is to help set, divide and accomplish your goals. Apart from guiding you towards reaching your goal, your life coach will also work towards honing other related aspects such as time management, getting adequate rest, balancing work and social life, among many other things.
Along with helping you achieve your goals, a life coach will give you a clear cut strategy on how to approach these goals and what steps need to be taken at what point in time. Without a strong strategy, everything is at risk of falling apart.
· Creating accountability
We’ve highlighted this point in our previous blogs as well. It is in a life coach’s professional capacity to hold you accountable for the tasks accomplished as well as those that haven’t been. With someone looking out for you on every turn, it’s almost impossible to not reach the finish line.
Whatever we’ve mentioned above doesn’t stay limited to just any one aspect of your life. In fact, life coaching can prove highly impactful in every aspect of your life.
Some one might need it to cope with their day-to-day life; others might need help finding a romantic partner. Some might need to reach their career goals, while others might require spiritual guidance. To accomplish all this and a lot more, life coaching can immensely benefit you if you have goals you want to achieve for yourself.
If you stay too afraid, unsure of how to reach your goals, your scope for progress becomes non-existent. Just like you would go to a doctor for a physical or mental condition, a life coach can help you with how to reach your goals.
