Do I Really Need a Coach ?
Well, that is a tough question. Let me start by saying that everyone in the world is working at making something better in their lives. Each one of us has been stuck and somehow found a way out either through help from someone or we figured out the solution after several attempts. That situation and the journey out of it taught us something new, and now we know how to handle similar situations. What does that mean? It means that you can also help someone else who is struggling with similar challenges. So, are you coaching that friend as you help him or her? What do you understand by that process of helping someone else get unstuck?
Think about it, the best athletes, golfers, basket ballplayers, rugby players, wrestlers, boxing championships, etc. have a personal coach. That person has helped them along the journey since they started until they have now made a name for themselves in their respective craft. Do they really need a coach now that they have made a name for themselves? Why do they continue to work with a coach? Remember that a new higher level in life comes with different challenges and therefore you will need to consider a coach at certain times in your life journey.
Let us all agree that we need guidance in one way or another in order for us to move forward in what we do. You do not have to be stuck in order to look for someone to help you improve. All you need is to set very high goals for yourself and then look for someone to help you stay focused along the journey towards achieving those goals. Other times, you need someone to help you identify and set your personal and professional goals after which he or she will help you map out the steps towards the success journey. We all have some blind spots on our way towards excellence and that could be blocking your mind in that you are not able to move forward. You keep making the same mistakes over and over again and have lost time and money for many years. The good news is that there is someone with more experience or who has trained as a coach that can help you figure out the best way forward out of where you are stuck.
So, who is a coach? There are many types of coaches. They include but not limited to wealth coaches, health, career coaches, spiritual coaches, and so on. I will only touch on two types of coaches; life and business coaches. A life coach is a specialist, an expert on helping you develop all areas of your personal life. Unlike many consultants who propose a solution and leave you to implement it, the life coach stays with you to help you integrate the changes, new skills, and goals to make sure they really happen. Life coaching propels the action, helping clients increase self-awareness, clarify their goals, raise their confidence and commitment and identify suitable paths to their goals. Business coaching has a specific focus on business-related goals.
In conclusion, the right coach will help you get unstuck in your personal and business journey and provide the necessary support as you craft your new and unique journey towards achieving your goals, dreams, desires, etc. You need to identify the biggest need and seek out the services of a coach if you are keen to shift gears and build a better tomorrow for you and your family.
