What is Life Coaching

Life Coaching is a highly effective therapy to eliminate obstacles that prevent healthy changes in life to occur and create an environment which is conducive for positive actions or activities. It is completely different from counselling or consulting, as it helps you meet and exceed goals in both your personal and professional lives. Life Coaching enables you to set clear goals in your life, empower you to confront the challenges by reinstalling faltering confidence, and select an appropriate course to overcome all obstacles to achieve set goals.

Our approaches towards our goals are various; anyway, such approaches can be classified into five different categories:

  • I do not know what I want
  • I know what I want, but do not know how to get it
  • I know what I want and how to get it, but something keeps holding me back
  • I know what I want, how to get it and I am motivated and on track
  • I know what I want and I have already achieved it
 

Life Coaching is most helpful for people falling in the first three categories. It enables them to identify their goals and chart out an appropriate approach to achieve them, while eliminating all the obstacles in between.

Statistics suggests that a majority of people turn to their spouses, parents, friends or family members to help them make key decisions or to unburden their problems.

However, family and friends may not always be able to give advice or have solutions to these problems. This is where Life Coaching can come in as it helps people perceive their life from a different perspective.

The three basic essentials of Life Coaching are Guidance, Empowerment and Improvement. It works on the principle that you know best about your own desires or goals, although you may not always be aware of it at a conscious level. An efficient Life Coaching can guide you to access your inner knowledge to establish what you really want in a particular situation. The employed coaching techniques vary from one person to another.

Once the life goals have been identified, Life Coaching assists in charting out a concrete course for you to go ahead and works towards increasing your resourcefulness to achieve desired goals. Moreover, Life Coaching helps you recognize your internal potentials, empowers you to acquire external resources as well as gives instructions about things that are out of your control.

The most challenging stage in the process of achieving your dreams is to always uphold a positive outlook and high self-esteem. This may not always be possible as sometimes things do not go on as planned. There also several occasions when it becomes extremely impossible to find a breakthrough to a problem. In such circumstances, Life Coaching can keep you focused on your goal by reinforcing its importance and helping you find a way to achieve it. He will boost your resourcefulness and keep you motivated to effectively deal with the challenges that you may encounter.
