Life Coaching: What to Expect From a Life Coach

When you think of life coaching, what comes to mind? Do you think about working with a life coach to achieve your goals? Or do you think about hiring a life coach to help you through a difficult time? If you’re not sure what to expect from a life coach, don’t worry! In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of working with a life coach and why people go to them for help.

What is life coaching and what do coaches do?

Life coaching is a process where people work with a coach to achieve specific goals. The coach helps the client identify their goals, create a plan to achieve those goals, and provides support along the way.

People seek out life coaches for different reasons. Some people want help setting and achieving personal or professional goals. Others may be going through a difficult time and need guidance and support. Life coaches can help people make significant changes in their lives, or simply provide motivation and accountability.

There are many different types of life coaches, so it’s important to find one that fits your needs. Some coaches specialize in specific areas such as career coaching, relationship coaching, or health and wellness coaching. Other coaches take a more general approach and can help with any area of your life.

The benefits of working with a life coach

There are many benefits to working with a life coach, including gaining clarity on your goals, developing actionable steps to achieve those goals, and increasing accountability.

A life coach can help you to identify the areas of your life that you would like to improve and set realistic goals for doing so. They will also work with you to develop a plan of action and help you to stay on track. Accountability is another key benefit of working with a life coach – they will hold you accountable for taking action and making progress towards your goals.

If you are feeling stuck in any area of your life, or simply want to make some positive changes, then working with a life coach could be the perfect solution for you.

How to find the right life coach for you

Now that you know what you should be looking for in a life coach, it’s time to start your search. Here are a few places to look:

– Personal recommendations: Ask your friends, family, and colleagues if they know anyone who could help you.

– Professional networks: If you belong to any professional organizations or have any industry contacts, reach out to them for recommendations.

– Online directories: There are several online directories that list life coaches, such as the International Coach Federation and the Association for Coaching.

Once you’ve compiled a list of potential coaches, it’s time to start reaching out and scheduling consultations. During these consultations, pay attention to how well the coach understands your needs and whether you feel comfortable communicating with them. Be sure to ask plenty of questions so that you can get a sense of their coaching style and approach.

The most important thing is to find a coach who you feel comfortable working with and who you believe can help you achieve your goals. Don’t be afraid to shop around until you find the right fit. And remember, even the best coaches won’t be able to help you if you’re not committed to doing the work yourself. So if you’re ready to make some changes in your life, a life coach could be just what you need to help you get started.

Creation versus Survival – Be the Source

“Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, You are withholding from the world”

I read this quote a few days ago and it has been on my mind ever since.
It reminded me of something I learnt a long time ago, but clearly forgot for a while.🤦‍♀️
Don’t you love how you can learn something pretty life-changing,
Even use and apply it in your life and see the results and yet, somehow, life happens.

Living in Survival keeps us stuck in revolution versus evolution

We get challenged and at times when we need it the most, all that wisdom goes flying out the window and we are back in survival mode?!!‼️
It reminded me of one simple principle:

✨Whatever you want more of, become the source of that. ✨

You want more love, start loving others more.
You want more money, start giving generously to others.
You want more connection, start connecting with others more.
You want to grow your business, help others grow theirs.
I thought I knew this stuff, even lived this stuff, and most often I do.
But I realised that sometimes, I get stubborn. I want it to come to me.😳
I get stuck In my head and that’s where it all falls apart.

“Get stuck in your head and you’re dead”❌

When we get stuck in our heads, Overthinking, over-analyzing & completely stressed out,
Our hearts close down. It’s a form of protection.

And when our hearts are closed, we enter a spiral of stress, fear & limitation:

1. We have very limited thinking
(We can only see limited options & are blinded to the infinite potentials that could exist)
2. We have black and white thinking
(It’s either life or death & nothing in between)
3. We become pretty self-obsessed
(it’s a survival thing but we get blinded to what’s happening with others as we are so stuck in our own drama)
4. We are in survival versus creation
(We keep thinking the same thing, stuck in the same story, wishing for a different result)
5. We block access to intelligent thinking
(We get stuck in the amygdala, the animal part of the brain and close down the intelligent executive center of the brain)
This means that when we get stressed out. We forget to be the source.❣️

We forget that we are the creators of our own reality.💯

We forget that in connecting with others, Giving to others in any form…
(It doesn’t have to be money. It could just be a smile)
We feel more connected. We feel a little better about ourselves. & our heart starts to open a little more.❤️
Which breaks the spiral & moves us into a different state.
One where we can think & feel slightly differently, open up to new possibilities & maybe even give a little more.
And that’s where the magic happens!!🎁

What do you wish you had more of right now?

More joy?
Then be the source of joy for others.
More stillness?
Then help others find their peace within.
More certainty?
Maybe let go of your need for control.
The one thing I know for sure is that we are creators.
And if we want something different to appear in our lives, we need BE different within ourselves.

The outer world is always a reflection of our inner being.

All of this is a big reminder to myself (and you if it resonates):

Be the source.
