A coach will help you clarify your goals and dreams.
You don’t hire a coach to tell you what to do. You have your mom for that. You hire a coach to help you identify your goals and re-think your hesitations. Coaches push you to work hard to reach a goal, when on your own, you would still be sitting on the couch googling the possibilities.
A coach holds you accountable.
Coaches can help you talk through the options, but only you know which will work best for you. Once you have zero’d in on your goal, a coach is there to help you set and keep deadlines, to help keep you focused.
A coach will increase your time management skills.
Having someone hold you accountable to your goals and deadlines will help you focus on them throughout the week. This means you will spend much less time wondering what to do and more time working on the items the two of us have decided are your priorities.
A coach will challenge you to change and grow.
Change and growth are scary, even when you know they are needed. Staying where you are, doing the things you know is comforting. Even when you know in your heart of hearts that those things aren’t good for you. A coach will help you find and explore your passions and change bad habits. A coach will help and encourage your to learn and grow into the person you were meant to be.
A coach will help you through transitions and out of ruts.
People hire coaches when they feel like they they aren’t living the life they are meant to live or when they have transitions in their life that they aren’t sure how to handle. Having a neutral person to talk things through with can be invaluable.
A coach will help you strengthen your personal foundation.
This occurs in many ways, but most notably they will help you;
- discover your real needs and how to meet them
- find your limits and learn to express them.
- raise your standards so you can stop settling and starting working towards what you deserve.
- establish boundaries and stop tolerating day to day intrusions.
Coaches can offer support and guidance, but they are not a psychologist nor a replacement for therapy.
Do you need to pay someone for this? Absolutely not. You hold your own best answers. A coach will simply help you find those answers faster then you will on your own by asking powerful questions that will help you examine your situation from all sides. Then having someone to hold you accountable will help you keep on track.
