A Life Coach’s job is to help the client distil their dreams and aspirations assisting them in being able to see and articulate their goals. An ideal client is someone who wants to change and who wants to work towards their goals.
A Coach transports you from where you are now to where you want to be. Separates you from your saboteur – these thoughts and voices that hold you back and put road blocks up that prevent you from working towards your goals.
A Life Coach is someone who helps you to see that there are CHOICES – achievable choices – doors of opportunities.
One of the foundations of Coaching is that there is nothing “wrong” with someone. We are all creative, resourceful and whole. A Coach helps one to illuminate their goals, where they might be otherwise hidden.
You may ask yourself, Why do I need a Life Coach ?
If you have had a thought for years and have never acted on it, things like :
- Starting your own business
- Being confident
- Having a healthy weight
- Taking up a new challenge, like golf, or learning to drive etc
- Writing a book
- Having a wonderful relationship
- Having balance within your life
We are all Manifestors – we all do this everyday. One can manifest what we want or what we don’t want. Goals are thoughts we have about the future. Some of these we do unstructured everyday without knowing it – like breathing. Some goals overwhelm us preventing us from moving towards them. We may feel they are impossible to achieve.
Fulfilment is a life of meaning, purpose and satisfaction. It is doing what is important with passion and commitment. It may feel like everything is vibrating in total alignment, whether it be dramatic and exciting or tranquil and serene. A Coach helps clients to discover and clarify what their values are, what is truly essential in one’s life. Making choices based on your values leads to the fulfilling life that we desire.
Balance looks like many different things to different people. Balance is to be viewed over a period of time, is what you are doing or the choices you make pointing towards the balance to desire or away from that goal. How can we shift the balance so that is is going towards your goals? A Life Coach asks questions that lead to discovery.
A coach listens:
- Without judgement
- With compassion
- With your goals in mind
Fulfilment is something that happens every day.
