Wouldn’t you just love to awake each morning excited about the unlimited possibilities of the day ahead? Do you have a dream that you just can’t seem to bring to life? Do you want more money? time? fun? (fill in the blank____ ?) Do you have a yearning for something to be different and just do not know what it is or how to get there? A “Yes” answer to any of these questions is why you might choose to work with a professional life coach.
Life Coaching is all about YOU, creating your life from choice, from your deepest values and guiding principles. Life Coaching is a co-creative process between you and your coach- a relationship focused on supporting you to identify, achieve and celebrate living your grandest vision of your life.
Life Coaching is not therapy. Therapy fixes people; Life Coaching supports healthy people. Therapy deals with the past; Life Coaching deals with the present and the future. In therapy the therapist has the answer; in Life Coaching you have the answer. In therapy the progress can be slow and painful; in Life Coaching growth and progress generally are rapid and enjoyable.
Life Coaching is based upon the belief that you, the client, are whole and complete, resourceful and creative. Your coach is your partner who provides support, insight, tools and strategies to help you to access your inner wisdom. Coaching is forward-moving and action-oriented, designed to assist you to recognize what is holding you back and to move beyond it.
Coaches come in all shapes, sizes and specialties to fit your needs. Executive and corporate coaching, performance coaching, business coaching and career coaching are just some of the specialty areas. Life coaching niches include, among other areas, financial freedom, attention deficit disorder, health and fitness, spirituality, life vision and relationships. Regardless of the specialty, a life coach is committed to championing and challenging you to intentionally live your fullest potential.
How do you find a life coach for you? Personal referrals are a good source. The NW Coaches Association, at www.nwcoaches.org, and the International Coaches Federation, at www.coachfederation.org have listings of member coaches. The relationship between coach and client is what creates the magic to support the growth and forward movement of the client. Take the time to interview and select the coach that triggers in you a deep trust and confidence and sense of partnership. It will be worth it.
Are you ready to live your life passionately, joyfully and creatively, expressing your unlimited potential? Are you ready to use the power of intention to live your life in the realm of unlimited possibility? Are you ready to courageously BE all you can be, contributing your best to the world? If so, you are ready for a life coach. GO FOR IT!
