Top 10 Reasons for Having a Life Coach

Here are the Top 10 Reasons You Need a Life Coach!

1. Goals: You will set far better and more realistic goals that motivate you. Many people have never created a Goal Setting Strategy, which is why most people when asked `what do you want?’ they can only respond with “I know what I don’t want”. A coach is an expert in helping you to identify and set realistic and achievable goals that you really want. Choosing the right goals for you is an art; a coach will help you clarify your personal values, so that you have something really solid on which to develop your goals. Value-based goals are naturally motivating.

2. Accomplishments: Your goals, tasks and projects will be accomplished more quickly. Working with a coach can save time; you will learn how to be far more effective, efficient and productive in everything that you do in all aspects in your life. The Coach has the tools and techniques to share with their clients so that things get done in half the time.

3. Clarity: You’ll make fewer mistakes. Working with a Coach enables you to gain clarity on any situation, enabling you to make the right choice and decision for you to move forward in your life. A coach generally will not, unless asked, be directive. With your coach you will work on your ideal life, you will be encouraged to visualize your future so you are in no doubt which path to take that is right for you.

4. Focused: You’ll move forward in your professional and personal life. By working with a coach you will see where you are right now, work out where you want to be and create the necessary steps to grow to reach your goals. It is not always about getting to the top of your profession or moving up the ladder (although it can be) sometimes people just want to be happy and acknowledge that this is also ok. By working out what you do want, and not what you don’t want, you will be able to focus on the positive and enjoy the process.

5. Happiness: You will be able to reduce the number of problems in your life. Most people will agree that happiness plays a major part in their lives. To create happiness you need to reduce the number of problems you have and be able to handle any that you will encounter. Life is too short and problems are too expensive; working with a Coach, your happiness will increase and problems decrease.

6. Finances: You are more likely to make more money. Your coaches will help you to leverage your ability to make money, i.e., getting a raise, choosing a better career, starting a business, improving profitability, adding more value to your customers, proper pricing, productivity and other value adds. Sure, Coaching is personal, but it almost always includes a strong financial aspect.

7. Stress: You will have a lot less stress in your life. Coaches know how to help you to reduce stress, integrate all aspects of your life, simplify or downshift, and re-orientate around what makes you the happiest. What good is increased productivity and profitability if you are too stresses to enjoy it?

8. Effective: You will be much more effective and influential with everyone in your life. Communication makes life. A good Coach is an expert communicator and works with you on how to come across better, relate well with others, listen aggressively, influence, Coach, motivate and support others.

9. Wiser Decisions: Once you hire a good life coach you start learning to trust your inner wisdom and intuition. You will actually start to think differently! It is as if you retrain your brain to appreciate the good and find the positive in your life. This allows you to look for solutions not problems. You will learn new ways to think and perceive your life and relationships. You will gain a wider perspective. You will receive unbiased, non-judgmental support and guidance. You will learn to stop self-sabotage, self-doubt and overcome restrictive beliefs.

10. Life: You’ll have a better life, not just a better lifestyle. The term `Quality of Life’ has become overused in the past few years, but the trend of people seeking to create a much better life for themselves is accelerating. In fact, people are re-examining what they had assumed that a good life was (married, 2.3 kids, nice car, secure job, church on Sundays, 3 weeks of vacation a year) and are now creating their own life, often breaking the rules and flying in the face of conventional wisdom in the process. Coaches understand the designing your life process and have already made many of the design changes in their life, which you are just now beginning to make.
