Many of us have formed emotional and physical habits that hold us back from living an enriched life. It takes an outside force to help reframe actions, mindset, and behavior to break these negative patterns.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A LIFE COACH?
An ICF-certified life coach is a qualified professional who can help you envision your best life and empower you with the right tools and roadmap to achieve your unique ambitions and desires. In essence, a life coach helps you build a bridge from who and where you are now to who and where you want to be.
When you work with a life coach, you will gain clarity and motivation to realizing your full potential by leveraging your strengths and overcoming your limitations.
DO YOU NEED A LIFE COACH?
Working with a certified life coach is one of the best investments you can purchase for yourself, so to help you figure out if you need one, here are six questions to ask yourself. If you answer yes to any of these, you could benefit from working with a life coach:
- Are you going through a transition?
- Are you feeling stuck?
- Do you want more out of life?
- Do you want to know your purpose in life?
- Do you have poor time management?
- Do you let fear hold you back?
ARE YOU GOING THROUGH A TRANSITION?
Change and transition are a way of life. Sometimes you experience multiple events at the same time or a singular major life event. Since transitions force you to make a decision, many overwhelming emotions can take over and make the transition process feel painful and overpowering. A life coach helps you build an actionable roadmap, so you can think clearly, with laser-focus action, and replace the negative self-talk with positive and encouraging thoughts.
ARE YOU FEELING STUCK?
You can feel stuck in your personal and professional life, where you’re unable to figure out your next move or stuck in analysis-paralysis preventing momentum. A life coach provides you with the tools and actionable steps you need to take to get unstuck and move your life in the right direction.
DO YOU WANT MORE OUT OF LIFE?
You may be self-sabotaging your success, preventing you from reaching your peak performance and full potential. A life coach helps you determine what you want from life and how to achieve it. By determining what’s preventing you from your ultimate success, you’ll be able to see opportunities and feel motivated and empowered to live life to your fullest.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE?
It’s easy to get lost in daily routines and doing things for the sake of doing them without much thought or passion. A life coach helps you find your unique purpose in life, the essence of what ignites passion within you and what energizes and excites your existence. You can think of your purpose as finding your inner compass. It will guide you through decisions and challenges.
DO YOU HAVE POOR TIME MANAGEMENT?
Unable to properly manage your time can lead to anxiety, stress, and challenges in your professional and personal life. Living under such turmoil is not sustainable and can lead to negative thought patterns and behaviors. A life coach helps you prioritize tasks, improve your time management, and discover the reasons behind your behavior so you can combat them with a positive and proactive mindset.
DO YOU LET FEAR HOLD YOU BACK?
Whether it’s fear of commitment, success, failure, loneliness, rejection, being judged, etc., these fears, if left out of check, can hold you back in life and prevent you from living a happy and fulfilled life. Many of these fears manifest from previous life experiences and appear as saboteurs telling you justification lies, interfering with your thoughts, feelings, and their negative impact on yourself and others. A life coach helps you overcome your fear by using tools that will identify the cause and effect of your thoughts and behavior and change the way you behave in challenging and uncertain times positively and productively.
HOW TO TAKE ACTION
Whether you’ve answered yes to one of these questions or several, a life coach helps you conquer each barrier preventing you from accomplishing what it is you want in life.
I founded E3LIFECOACH because I was stuck in my own life and used a life coach to help me figure things out and place my life on a better track. After witnessing the benefits of using a life coach, I decided to become a life coach through an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Accredited training program to give people like you access to the same roadmap and skills I used to reach my ultimate potential.
I would love to hear how I can help you overcome your life challenges. I can’t wait to help you live your best life!
