Are you asking yourself, “Do I need a life coach?” Here are some ways to identify if you need a coach.
ARE YOU STUCK?
You’ve achieved a lot so far, but you need help gettingg to the next level. When you face major decisions about life changes, from taking a new job to getting married or divorced, a Life Coach can offer you sound, unbiased guidance.
While friends and family can provide advice and listen to you vent, a life coach will help you determine what really matters to you in an honest way and deconstruct the “what ifs” and other inner voices you’re experiencing as you consider your options.
DO YOU WANT TO BE MORE DECISIVE, TAKE ACTION OR GET HELP CREATING A VISION
Why do you need a life coach? If your confidence isn’t where it should be or you are having trouble charting a course because you’re too close to your problems to see the next steps, a Life Coach can help you find clarity and guide you to a more proactive path. The many “shoulds” that you encounter every day can cloud your judgment, and it’s the job of a life coach to make it easier to understand what you really want and to help you figure out how to get it. He or she can also help you shrewdly assess risks and assert yourself wisely, which boosts your confidence as you practice such important life skills.
ARE YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS HOLDING YOU BACK?
We all have battle scars, but some of us have trouble letting go of past experiences that limit and prevent us from moving forward in life and toward our goals. Holding on to terrible memories and feelings is both exhausting and counterproductive, and a Life Coach can help you process your old beliefs and ideas in ways that allow you to work past counterproductive patterns, get more done and move forward – instead of dwelling on the past.
ARE YOU FOCUSED ON YOUR OUTCOME?
Maybe you have a goal, like starting a business, but you lack a clear vision that will help you make that vision a reality. A Life Coach is an expert who can help you clarify your goals. Through comprehensive goal-setting and examining your current operations, a life coach will help you hone in on what you truly want.
YOU HAVE A VISION BUT LACK A PLAN?
If formulating a clear vision isn’t your issue but creating an actionable plan to execute is, a Life Coach is still your go-to resource. Don’t let your idea fall by the wayside due to lack of organization!
HAVE YOU LOST MOMENTUM?
Are you still searching for your career path 10 years out of school? Feeling unfulfilled at work or in your relationship? Just unsure about what you wish you were doing, even though you know it’s not what you’re doing right now? You’re not alone. If you’re thinking, “I need help with life,” it’s probably time to find a Life Coach who can help you clarify your values so you can set meaningful goals for yourself and create an actionable plan.
YOU NEED TO BE EFFICIENT TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
If you don’t have any time or resources to waste as you strive toward your goals, a life coach can help you achieve more with less by finding solutions to plateaus or challenges you’re facing, helping you stay motivated to get to your end game faster.
YOUR ACTIONS AREN'T SUPPORTING YOUR IDEAS
If you know what you want but are having trouble acting in ways that get you there, a life coach can help you make better decisions and cut out self-destructive habits. If you’re ready to break out of old patterns, a great life coach can help you overcome setbacks and achieve new growth.
YOU CAN’T GET EVERYTHING DONE THAT YOU NEED TO IN THE TIME YOU HAVE
You already know that putting off until tomorrow what you need to do today isn’t going to get you anywhere, but sometimes you need help staying on task and breaking through counterproductive patterns established in the past. A Life Coach is perfect for helping you learn to do just that.
YOU WANT TO GET THE EDGE AND TAKE YOUR LIFE TO THE NEXT LEVEL
If you’re ready to make the leap to a new job or profession, a Life Coach can give you the confidence to do so. If more money is on your mind and you’re not sure how to get it, a life coach can help you find ways to earn more by identifying your strengths that you can leverage.
YOU’RE FACING A MAJOR TRANSITION
If you’re about to change jobs, move to a new city or get out of a relationship, it’s a great time to work with a Life Coach. You don’t want to burn out your family and friends with discussions about your upcoming life changes, and you want to make your transition as easy as you can. You also want to begin new chapters in your life on your own terms, but if you don’t know what those are, you’ll need help clarifying them.
YOU'RE READY TO STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Do you find that you’ve stopped progressing and are merely existing in your current state? If you’re getting a little too comfortable with your routine, it may be time to step out of your comfort zone. A Life Coach can help you challenge yourself to learn, grow, have fun and take action in exciting new ways.
YOU’RE READY TO FACE SOME INTIMIDATING CHALLENGES
Everyone is intimidated from time to time by challenges in their lives. If fear is ever holding you back, take action and learn how to use your beliefs as a force for success. A Life Coach can help you name your fears and do everything you want and need to do in spite of them. A coach can also help you transform the way you think about your fears today and shift your perspective so that your focus is on emphasizing your positive traits, instead of focusing on limiting beliefs.
