Committing to coaching, under the right coach, has the potential to help you incredibly soar to new heights. Although this list isn’t all inclusive, it highlights important core aspects of what coaching is and how it effects your life.
Opportunities for Growth
Work with a life coach is not to be taken lightly for it can help reveal great insight, creating more opportunities for growth within your personal and or professional life. It fosters internal development fueled by your desire to make a change. As life coaches, we are your partners, ushering you into a realm of self-discovery. It is not we who decide for you, you make the moves that pave the way for greatness to occur. The milestones conquered and goals reached are as a result of your effort. We stand with you, as encouraging companions, to help you facilitate and order the steps. Ultimately, you will make the decisions that lead to the changes you want to see within yourself, and your life as a whole.
Recognize and Build Trusting Relationships
Sharing our most intimate wishes with those we are familiar can, at times, be challenging, let alone sharing with a coach. To reach the highest potential, coach and client both must be willing to share our honest thoughts and opinions. That act requires a strong relationship built upon a foundation of trust. This ideal is supported by the International Coach Federation per their ethical standards necessitating client confidentiality. Knowing that what you speak about in your sessions will be kept confidential creates an environment where your grandest ideas are up for discussion; regardless if they meet another’s standard of sensibility. Too often our friends, out of doubt, and guardians, out of fear, dismiss our vision and schemes due to their own limitations. Nonetheless, coaches understand and actually encourages clients to be forth coming and uninhibited with what they want to achieve in life. Recognizing the actions of a trustworthy coach helps you to identify similar characteristics in other you encounter daily. This invaluable insight supports healthy interactions, with the important people in your life, on an even more meaningful level.
As you set your plan of action and start checking boxes off the list, your self-confidence builds. There is satisfaction in knowing that, not only did you design a road map to reach your desired goal, but you also put forth the effort to make it a reality. Whether intangible or measurable, a milestone reached, is a milestone reached. It counts and believe me, they do add up. Occasionally, our goals may seem far out of reach. Coaches assist in helping us realize that it isn’t far off and smaller steps should be implemented between now and goal deadline to generate ease of success.
Helps You to Focus on Your Strengths
Coaching is done in the positive. Have you ever noticed how easy it is for us to focus on what we aren’t doing well? We can quickly tell someone what we do not have, the qualities we lack. It is understandable. Truly, how can you fix when you do not know what is “wrong”? Why assume that a particular characteristic is inherently bad. Our character traits help to build the entire beings that we are. If we consider that every being is unique, and plays a certain part to help keep this world turning, then we should celebrate our individuality. Coaches will help you identify your strengths, as well as, uncover ways in which you use those strengths to support you in areas you may feel are lacking desired qualities.
Positively Effects Other Areas of Your Life
Whether young or mature, just as many individuals are seeking the assistance of a coach for educational purposes as those seeking support in the area of their career. Fulfilling a scholarly ambition is huge triumph. Earning a diploma, GED or college degree has the potential to open many doors and fosters countless opportunities. It is evident that working with a coach and reaching those goals increases your self-confidence and self-worth. When embarking on a journey to begin your career or improve your social life, confidence is highly favored. Being confident in your abilities and displaying that self-assuredness to others positively solidifies you in the ‘light of good graces’.
