Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.” — Anonymous
What Is Coaching?
Coaching is about establishing a trusting partnership between the coach and client. It starts with a stirring from within because you want things to be different. Whatever the issue that’s holding you back — feeling stressed, stuck, disconnected, confused, unmotivated, it’s not neatly isolated. It’s interwoven within all levels: heart, body, mind, and spirit. Coaching is about actively partnering to assist clients in taking action steps that will put you on a path to success. The coach’s job is to be curious, explore the client’s world with them, and ask the right questions. Powerful questions provide a client with introspection for possible solutions and lead to greater insight.
Who Seeks Coaching?
Anyone who desires to transform their life and break free of old habits that weigh you down, or limiting beliefs that keep you smaller than who you truly are. Maybe you want more from life — more peace of mind or more inner fulfillment. Maybe you want less —less stress or less confusion. Change is often within your grasp but not always easy. A feeling of being stuck, the busyness of life, or fear of the unknown, can stop you from stepping into a new chapter in your life. The overall goal is to help you navigate change and support your forward movement in a healthier way. Coaching can be the catalyst to help you live authentically. Learn to shift your thinking beyond your limiting beliefs and gain the confidence to live the life you desire.
How Does Life Coaching Differ from Therapy?
Although life coaching and therapy can complement each other, life coaching is not therapy. Therapy assists clients to resolve past-based issues or traumas. Life coaching does not diagnose or treat, but focuses on the present and is intended to help clients with change and achieve both personal and professional goals for the future.
