What is a Life Coach?

A life coach is a wellness professional whose goal it is to help you make changes, break through limiting beliefs and generate lasting success in your life. They help you improve your relationships, provide clarity on your career trajectory and goals, and lead a more fulfilling life overall.

They provide you with strategies to transform your life, strategies to help you let go of limiting beliefs and create with you an action plan for lasting change.

When should you see a life coach?

If you are looking to break a negative habit loop, uncertain of the next step to take in your life, are experiencing high levels of stress, can sense blockages from breaking through to the next phase, or are facing self doubt and self sabotage.

Life coaches are trained to help you eliminate long held limiting beliefs, open creativity and flow in your life, build a strong sense of trust in yourself, improve your communication with others and create stronger relationships. They provide more clarity on the direction of your life and therefore more satisfaction in day-to-day life.

Benefits of seeing a life coach

A lot of personal development coaches voice that success is 80% mindest and 20% aligned action. A life coach allows you to gain new insight and experience breakthroughs on what is holding you back from having the life you truly desire. They teach you effective strategies to take you from where you are to where you want to go, and provide clarity on aligned actions steps to take you there faster.

Having someone to hold you accountable is an invaluable resource for success and improvement, as well investing in yourself shows commitment to loving yourself, living completely into your dream life, and your commitment to the changes you are looking for in your life.

As well, having the advantage of an outside perspective whose goal is to help you achieve whatever it is you want to desire, leads to the ability to see places where someone is stuck but might be unaware of this stuckness, this typically leads to clients being able to achieve their goals faster.

Types of life coaches

Life coaches can focus on:

  1. Business
  2. Mindset
  3. Life skills
  4. Finances
  5. Family life
  6. Sports
  7. Dating and relationships
  8. Diet and fitness

Life coaches are different from therapists in a number of ways, first off in their type of training. Therapists are able to diagnose and assist with mental health medical conditions and are trained to provide an introspective approach to your well being. Life coaches on the other hand can be more easily compared to a sports coach. They create strategies and plans for the athlete or athletes to implement and achieve success.

The objective of a life coach is to help create a stronger channel to your inner wisdom, it’s different then receiving advice or an opinion of what you should do but instead teaching you tools so you can figure out where you want to be and then working together to create an actionable road map to get you there.

Most of us never received a course in our formal education or workplace on how to extend our happiness, achieve our goals, create lasting success or break through limiting beliefs and blockages, and that is where a life coach can help you now.
