Life is good and life can also be challenging and often gives us a multitude of questions or situations that we don’t know how to handle.
Even if you have a wide circle of friends and family who are willing to listen to your problems, they may not be equipped to give you good advice. If you want lots of happy talk, call Mom. She will love everything you do. Sure, venting to your best friend can relieve some of your stress, but does that friend give you action steps to follow so you can get out of the stressful situation? Is that same friend objective or are her comments adding to your stress?
If you want to grow, you will want someone who challenges you, someone who will tell you when they think you’re doing something great and how to make it succeed.
A good life coach is a unique combination of best friend, cheerleader and challenger. It might sound like a strange combination at first but when you’re having trouble in any aspect of your life you want someone who can listen carefully to your concerns, will offer a plan of action to relieve the stress and will also encourage you that you CAN make positive changes in your life.
Selecting the perfect coach to support, challenge and cheerlead you to your goals is so important.
You have to trust your coach and like their coaching style and feel at ease in sharing this amazing journey to your potential.
