You’ve probably heard of life coaching (it’s a FAST-growing industry), but what even is it? How does one coach someone on life? That seems like a lot.
The term life coaching is a bit of a mislead. But it’s a good umbrella term. There are tons of different varieties of life coaching that fit under this umbrella. You’ve got self-care coaching (that’s what I focus on!), job coaching, business coaching, mindset coaching, relationship coaching, parenting coaching, leadership coaching, etc… You get the idea.
So how can life coaching help you?
Gain self knowledge
Talking to someone looking at you from the outside-in might spark some discoveries. Coaches will ask questions about your habits, your beliefs, your behaviours and these will all provide clues that can help you figure out how to make your goals come to fruition.
Find comfort in having someone on your side
Your coach’s primary job is to help you reach your next level of awesomeness. They are in your corner, they are cheering you on, they want to see you succeed! Knowing that you have someone on your side will make you feel like a million bucks!
Figure out your deepest desires
Sometimes we think we want one thing, but really need another. Coaches can help you figure all of that out. This happens through a lot of question-asking and facilitating your journey through self-discovery. But coaches will try to get into deep, nitty-gritty work so that you can figure out what your biggest, most impactful dreams are.
Make progress on your goals
Coaches can facilitate your goal-setting and goal-attaining by acting as an accountability partner. They can help you figure out strategies for dealing with potential obstacles, create action plans for getting stuff done, and be there to celebrate your successes along the way! They’re also there to remind you of the scary big goals you wanted to reach and turn them into smaller, more accessible baby steps that will help you get closer to that big win!
Life coaching is about having someone on your side who’s trying to set you up for success in whatever your endeavour is. That looks like providing support and accountability, facilitating self-discovery, and giving you a little kick in the butt or pep talk when you need it.
