Let’s say you decide to plant a vegetable garden. You have to decide what vegetables you want to plant and where your garden will be located. You have to till the soil, plant the seeds, make sure it has enough water and sunlight, pull the weeds that get in the way of growth, and harvest your crop when it’s ready. Without your help, your garden will not flourish and produce the best vegetables. The same can be true with people. Some of us need a little support and guidance to become the best person we can and want to be. We need help to plan our path, nurture the journey, overcome obstacles, and live our best life. That’s where life coaching comes in.
Life Coaching 101
Life coaching is a process built on an ongoing partnership between you and your life coach. It is designed to help you achieve all that you desire in your life. It takes into consideration all aspects of your life, including relationships, career, health, finances, personal growth, and of course, fun.
Your life coach will assist you in creating your vision, setting goals, planning your path, taking action, and tracking your progress on your way to realizing your best life.
Just like a soccer coach or a football coach, your life coach is there to guide you, motivate you, inspire you, hold you accountable, and support you on your journey to becoming the best you that you can be and living the life you’ve always wanted.
Who Can Benefit From Life Coaching
The answer to this is simple . . .anyone and everyone!
The beauty of life coaching is that it is a completely personalized process, meant to help each individual grow, change, and attain all that they desire. Some people know they want more out of life but don’t know exactly what they want or where to start. Others know what they want but don’t know how to get there. And still others know what they want and the path they need to take to get there, but they just need some support along the way.
Everyone’s starting place is different. What matters is getting your self to the starting line and taking that first step. Your life coach will be there for you every step of the way.
Getting Off The Starting Block
In order to get anywhere, you need to know where you’re starting and where you want to go.
Your life coach will help you reflect on the life you are currently living. Together you’ll explore and identify what is most meaningful and important to you. You’ll gain clarity on what you want to accomplish, and what you envision for yourself to live your best life.
Forging Your Path
We were not born with GPS installed in our bodies. When we know where we want to go, it’s not always easy to figure out how to get there.
You will work with your life coach to set measurable and achievable goals. Your life coach will help you build these in manageable pieces with specific actions steps and timelines to keep you focused, while also pushing you to think outside of your comfort zone about the possibilities and what it takes to get there.
What About The Hurdles
It would be amazing if we could all travel down this path of life without a care in the world! But in life there are obstacles that get in our way. Sometimes they are little hills that we need to move strategically across, and sometimes they are giant mountains requiring us to rethink and regroup in order to move forward.
When this happens, your life coach will be there to support and encourage you, help you navigate the challenges, and keep you focused on your goals.
How Am I Doing?
Sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking we are being someone or doing something we are not. (We think we do, but do we really?) Sometimes we have trouble seeing our own successes and being proud of our accomplishments.
Your life coach will help you reflect honestly on your progress. You’ll evaluate what is working and what isn’t, and then make the necessary revisions to get you back on track. You’ll celebrate the little successes along the way while remaining focused on your goals and what it takes to reach them.
Your life coach is here to help you get what you want out of life. You’ll get support, encouragement, accountability, and guidance while you travel along your path.
If you come into life coaching with an open mind, a desire and drive to make a change, and a dedication to put in the work to take the necessary steps, you will reach the goals you set for yourself. You will live the life you’ve always wanted, and maybe even achieve things you never thought were possible.
Let's Talk Investment
Life coaching is an investment in you! It requires hard work and dedication and does not happen overnight. We recommend a minimum of 4-6 months, with sessions occurring weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on your individual needs and desires. The cost of coaching will depend on the length and frequency of your sessions.
