3 Benefits of Hiring a Life Coach - the Gift You Give Yourself
Hiring a life coach six years ago was the greatest gift I could ever give myself. By hiring my coach, I gave myself the time and space to really think about what I wanted in my life. What was working and not working. I gave myself permission to dream of a radically different career. One which looked entirely different to the life I was living. And I gave myself a coach, cheerleader and role model for what living an authentic life looked like.
This Christmas you can give yourself this gift too. Here are the top 3 benefits of hiring a life coach for yourself this year:
1. Create CLARITY on “What YOU really WANT in your life”
The first session with all my clients is always focused on what they want in their life. Often, people are stuck knowing what they DON’T want in their life but struggle to have a clear picture of what they DO want. It’s so valuable to carve out the time to really think deeply about:
What’s most important to you in life?
What’s most important to you in your career?
What’s most important to you in your relationships?
What are you tolerating in your life?
What do you want MORE of?
What do you want LESS of?
2. Creating the Steps for Change and Maintaining Focus:
Once you have a clear vision for where you want to go, you need to map out how to get there. For some changes this may be quick and easy and for others it may take years. I first had my vision to become a life coach and massage therapist six years before I finally made the change. But being able to hold the vision and move towards it at m own pace, made the journey right for me. I’m not someone who jumps into the cold water, I like to ease myself in slowly and gently.
Creating on an effective “plan of action” is half the battle. Moving consistently toward the desired target is the other key. When people get CLEAR about what they want, often times, they quickly forget. Not because their goals and objectives are no longer important, but because they get caught up in life, get busy, and present moment challenges zap their attention. My role as a coach is to HOLD this focus, and keep your vision alive.
3. Having A Life Coach Makes You More Accountable.
My role as a coach is to keep you on track and moving towards your vision. We all know what happens when with our best intentions, life gets busy and we put off making changes. By hiring a life coach and having regular sessions about your plan, you can keep yourself on track and even make faster progress. No more putting things off until tomorrow, you signal to yourself your commitment to achieving your dreams. And there's someone there to call you on it if you start to slip.
