5 Reasons Why You May Need a Coach
We All Need Help
One thing that keeps people from achieving unlimited success in their personal life and in their business is the fact that think they can "do it on their own." They realize they are stuck or that they are spinning their wheels and not gaining any traction but they resist investing in themselves. This is a good example of why you may need a life and business coach.
This is something that held me back for years. I have spun my wheels in my personal and business life because I didn't realize the value of life and business coaching; it has been invaluable to my current success!
Should I Get a Life or Business Coach?
Do you want to make a big change in your life? Do you feel like you are stuck? Do you want to reach a goal? Are you going through a life transition? There are a lot of reasons why people seek the help of a life or business coach.
Reasons Why You Might Want to Hire a Coach:
You are stuck or feel blocked somehow.
Maybe are unsure of your next step. If you are at a point in your life where you don't know where to go or what to do to achieve a goal or get to some point, a life or business coach may be perfect for you.
Perhaps you feel like you need to make a change in your life or business. Something is missing, you are seeking your purpose or you realize you need to overhaul some area of your life or business, a life or business coach might be a good idea.
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider seeking help from a life or business coach:
1. Coaching provides accountability.
I recently heard motivational speaker, Delatorro McNeal say, "People are like wheelbarrows; they only move when they are pushed." A life or business coach makes you accountable to following through or to stop procrastinating.
We all have limiting beliefs, thoughts and patterns which hold us back from reaching our full potential. Life and business coaches are about making you do what you know you need to and must do. The push you through the B.S. you've been telling yourself. When you are only accountable to yourself, you make up excuses and reasons why you haven't followed through. A coach won't allow you to do that. A coach is not going to force you to do things you really don't want to do or things that won't help you reach your goal.
2. Having a life or business coach saves you time and money.
Time is your greatest and scarcest resource. If you lose money, you can always get more money but if you waste time, you can't recover it. If you can admit to yourself that you have no idea what you are doing and how to move yourself along the path to achieving your goal or making the change you desire, then a life or business coach might be a good idea. You may already have a map or idea of the way you should go but there's great uncertainty.
3. A life or business coach will save you from stress, frustration and pain.
You do not have to reinvent the wheel. If you select a life or business coach who's gone through what you are going through and came out successful on the other side, you will definitely lessen or eliminate stress, frustration and pain. Why? Because your coach has already been where you are; they have walked in your shoes and they can help you avoid the pitfalls associated with the path you are traveling.
4. Coaches help you think of things you have never thought of.
A business coach helped me see that I needed to brand myself - my name and own who I am and what my business stands for. For many years, I thought I needed to have an organization name to draw my ideal client to me. My coach helped me see that I am the valuable commodity that my perfect client is seeking. Every time I have coached someone, without fail, they tell me, "Wow Carmin, I've never thought of that before!"
“The significant problems we face can not be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”Albert Einstein
5. A life or business coach will help give you the self-confidence you need and will increase your belief in yourself, your dreams and your abilities.
There have been so many times that I knew I wanted or needed to make a change, wanted desperately to achieve some long-held dream but held back due to low self-confidence and lack of belief in myself, my skills, my abilities and my purpose. There are many things which hold us back and limit our success. A life or business coach can help you become aware of your limiting beliefs and guide you through overcoming them.
There are so many challenges that I have overcome and so many goals I have reached and dreams I have achieved. My ability to serve you through life and business coaching is born out of actually having successfully overcome many obstacles which prevent women from living the life of their dreams on their own terms.
