The Benefits of Hiring a Life Coach and Why You’re Worth It
By Lynn Schroeder, Business and Life Coach
Life coaching is gaining in popularity everyday — that’s because it works! Coaching is NOT about fixing something that’s broken! A coach simply serves as a guide to help you overcome your limiting beliefs, enabling you to succeed.
As we approach the New Year, perhaps you feel in need of some outside direction and guidance.
Here are a few benefits of coaching:
Coaches help you make the right decisions.
As you learn more and more about yourself, a coach will help you learn to trust your own instincts and decisions. This will help you achieve success and let you walk in freedom.
Coaches teach personal accountability.
A personal coach teaches a client to hold themselves accountable and not rely on others to hold their feet to the
fire to accomplish goals. This also helps you overcome your fears and assume more responsibility for your personal and professional growth.
Coaches are trained listeners.
Coaches are trained to listen beyond what is shared, can help work through limiting beliefs, and recognize stumbling blocks that continue to get in a client’s way. A coach can help a client begin to think in different ways and create new solutions.
Coaches help you find a new way of thinking.
You’ve most probably heard the saying “nothing changes unless something changes.” A coach is not limited by the
same beliefs and thinking that the client may be stuck in. Coaches will assess your obstacles and eliminate them with a step-by-step action plan.
Coaches ask questions.
Asking questions can promote a new awareness for the client. Offering different perspectives can also compel a client to grow outside the issues that created the problem in the first place.
Coaches are neutral.
This ensures that the client’s day-today life will get unbiased coaching. The coach operates from an outside position to engage the client in powerful coaching conversations by asking the right questions. This enables breakthroughs that will cause a shift in your life. Coaches are in no way supposed to be authoritative and they are definitely not there to tell you what to do.
Coaches are trained visionaries.
They encourage you to realize your true, unique self and discover your potential and inner strength to live your life to the fullest.
