It can be quite confusing trying to explain to someone that my new career is coaching, and no not for a sports team, but coaching people in their everyday lives.
Coaching is on the newer side of things when it comes to helping professions, but is a truly great approach that has changed many lives including my own.
Similar to coaching as we hear of it often, my job is to challenge, to support and to be my client’s biggest fan.
As a coach, I see potential even at my client’s lowest points. I am here to be a voice of reason, a safe zone and a push in the right direction.
The difference in coaching and other forms of help is that the number one focus is moving forward in action toward your goals and a better life. Where are you now? Where do you want to be and how committed are you to getting there?
I’m here as your coach to combat your excuses and really fight for the life you want. I’m here to help you brainstorm, self reflect and see new perspectives.
It’s about transformation as a whole. It’s about you making the decision that you’re ready for the next step. You’re ready to change. You’re ready to live.
Another difference between coaching and forms of therapy or counseling is that coaching is for people who are ready to take their already decent life and explode it to the next level. So many of us have been engrained with the idea that it’s just fine to live an okay life. That it’s okay to settle into the comfortable.
But, what I’m here to do is open a door to a life you’ve dreamed of. I’m here to show you that it’s really not that far out of your reach. I’m here to partner with you on your journey of success.
I’ll leave you tonight with one of my favorite quotes
“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” -Nelson Mandela
