Day 10: Life Coaching
Today I want to spend a little bit of time sharing what exactly a Life Coach is and why you may want to work with one.
There are times in life when we can all use some outside perspective.
Times when things aren’t quite going as planned, or aren’t quite as clear as we want them to be.
When this happens, a Life Coach can be there to help you create forward motion.
The focus is not on your past, but rather on your present and future.
As a Coach, I am there to ask you powerful questions so that you’re better equipped to make powerful decisions for yourself.
It’s not my job to tell you what to do. It’s my job to help uncover what you’d like to do and why.
I’ve noticed 3 specific times when it can be extremely helpful to work with a Life Coach. Those times are:
1) When you have a specific goal in mind that you’ve been unable to achieve.
2) When you are feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of which direction your life is headed. You look up one day and realize life is passing you by.
3) You’re in a period of transition and wanting clarity around how to navigate the changes.
Let’s take an even closer look at each of these areas, and some specific examples for each.
You have a specific goal in mind that you’ve been unable to achieve.
You own your own business, but it’s more of a ‘jobby’ then a job. Meaning, you work hard, but have been unable to generate the income that you had hoped to generate.
You’ve been striving for work/life balance for the past 10+ years and have yet to achieve it. It feels like your days are defined by work and basic daily necessities (laundry, grocery shopping, kids and bill paying). You want more but are unsure of how to find the time.
You are feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of which direction your life is headed. You look up one day and realize life is passing you by.
You started out with hopes and dreams of what you wanted to be when you grew up. Now here you are grown, with children headed off to college, and uncertain about where your relationship stands, what your purpose is and what’s next.
Your house is a mess and you feel completely unorganized within your space. You can’t find what you need when you need it. Because of the chaos you miss deadlines, are often running late and feeling unprepared.
You’re in a period of transition and wanting clarity around how to navigate the changes.
You’re in a relationship and unhappy. You feel frustrated and hopeless because you don’t see the other person changing any time soon.
You’ve struggled with prioritizing, punctuality, and planning for most of your life. You’ve joked that you’re “so adhd” to friends and family. The problem is that it doesn’t feel very funny. You wonder sometimes if there’s something to it? or maybe you’ve just recently been diagnosed with adhd and you’re not sure what it means. Now what?
I can help. I’ve been there and have navigated those waters myself along with the help of my coach. It’s really changed the way I approach things and how I feel on a daily basis.
As a Life Coach I meet with my clients weekly for 45 minutes.
Our calls are done over Zoom (video conference), are private and can be done from the comfort of your own home. (If you prefer, calls can be done audio only so as not to distract you)
I offer a free 45-minute consultation to help you get started. Taking that first step is the hardest. After that, it’s so nice to have someone that you talk to weekly to clear out your brain, (and course correct if needed) so that you are living life on your terms, the way that you want to.
The 45-minute consultation is my gift to you. If you’re considering coaching, and are ready to invest the time and money to make the changes in life that you’re wanting to make, perfect! Book a call below.
We’ll use the time as a way to determine what you feel the problem is, how I can help and if we’d be a good fit. If you decide to move forward with coaching, we can get started right away and in 3 months you will feel so much better and more in control.
If you decide not to move forward with coaching at this time, no problem. You will have gained some clarity around what it is that you want. You will know what to expect if you decide to work together in the future.
The one thing that’s certain is if you keep going the way you’re going you’ll end up with the same results. The only way to have a different outcome is to try something different.
I’m invested in helping you make a decision for yourself one way or the other, and help you make sure that you like your reason. That in and of itself can be helpful. Coaching works when a person is ready.
