The Benefits Of Life Coaching
Why Have A Life Coach?
What are the benefits of life coaching?
Remember when you were a child and everything was possible?
One of the benefits of life coaching is that it helps you to rediscover the possibilities.
Do you set goals and wonder why you don’t achieve them?
The probability of achieving a goal if
You have an idea 10%
- You decide when you'll do it 40%
- You plan how you'll do it 50%
- You make a commitment to someone that you'll do it 65%
- You make an appointment to report back to the person
you made the commitment with 95%
You're much more likely to succeed when you have someone to report back to on your progress.
Now, imagine having someone to cheer you on and hold you accountable to be and do your best …
"Throw off everything that hinders and the sin that easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus … so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." Heb 12:1-3
You can't win the race if you don’t know where you're going!
Christian life coaching helps you to train for the race of life. It helps you to clarify your goals and remember where you’re headed and why.
Some Of The Many Benefits Of Life Coaching
The main benefit of life coaching is that it gives you a listening ear and sounding board in a a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment - somewhere to explore your ideas and get constructive feedback.
When you encounter major changes in your life - a new job, a house move, the death of a loved one, or retirement - you face uncertainty and the need to readjust. Friends, family and churches give support and encouragement. A life coach helps you to reassess your life, find new career options, change your lifestyle, get appropriate training, re-evaluate your finances, and find information that enables you to make wise decisions.
Life coaching helps you to
- take your dreams off the shelf
- anticipate what you could become
- overcome self-defeating habits and insecurities
- manage relationships
- develop new competencies
- develop effective ways to keep on improving.
It helps you to rediscover your true passions so you can line up your life with what's important to you.
When you work with a life coach you'll benefit in many ways. You'll
- develop greater awareness
- discover what you really want from life
- decide what's most important to you
- set priorities and keep your focus on what matters most
- make better, more informed decisions
- explore and evaluate all the possibilities so that you can be sure the path you choose is the best one for you.
Coaching will benefit you by helping you to set goals you really want to achieve by distinguishing between what you could do, should do, ought to do and really want to do. When you create an ideal goal - something you really want - you're more likely to take action to achieve it.
A life coach works with you to create a step by step plan – a dynamic, workable plan enabling you to achieve your dreams.
And gently nudges and encourages you to deal with realities that need to be faced and addressed.
Another benefit of having a life coach is that you'll find it easier to identify obstacles and explore strategies to overcome them. Once you've identified the obstacles and developed strategies you'll find it easier to plough through them and achieve your goals.
You'll be able to reach for more and maintain a balanced life while doing it. You'll have more time for people and things you value, so you'll feel more fulfilled.
A life coach helps you to see what’s working in your life. You'll learn to do more of what’s working so you can have more success and feel more fulfilled. Finding solutions for what isn’t working will help you to press on and enjoy success.
You'll be able to identify and overcome limiting beliefs. Coaching helps you to uncover patterns that have kept you from making changes so that you can break free from self defeating habits, successfully pursue your dream and go beyond previous limitations.
Life coaching paves the way for lasting change. You'll be able to stick with things until they get done because you have support and encouragement.
A coach encourage you to find the courage to give yourself permission to do what you really want to do – it's easier when you have someone alongside helping you to believe in your God given abilities, and cheering you on.
