Have you ever heard this question, “If you woke up tomorrow and knew that you could choose whatever you wanted to do for the rest of your life and you could not fail, what would you do?”
Do you know?
Some people think this is an easy question to answer. They say things like, “I would buy a mansion”, or ” I would buy a house on the beach and spend my days playing golf, travel around the world, or buy an island and just hang.” Don’t get me wrong, those things sound inviting, but there has to be more to life than just things and having fun.
How would you add value to the world? How would you add value to your world?
A funny thing happened on my way to becoming a life coach. I discovered things about me that I really didn’t know. That’s the beauty of having a life coach.
“What is a life coach and how does it differ from counseling?” people often ask. That’s a very good question. Counselors are like archaeologists, they dig around in the past and unearth things to look at and learn about. Life Coaches are more like architects, they build something for the future.
Do you see the difference?
Here are a few reasons why people resist enlisting the help of a life coach.
1. I’ve been around the self-help, positive attitude way of living for many, many years and it hasn’t worked yet. The teacher (life coach) shows up when the student is ready.
2. If I changed, truly changed,what would happen to my old life? Maybe it would be better. Maybe not, but what if it were…
Change is hard. Change for better, change for worse. What if your life could be different? What then?
A few very important things I discovered through life coaching are my values and purpose in life. Once you discover what they are, making decisions becomes a whole lot easier. I can’t believe I’ve lived my entire life just going along letting things happen to me, allowing life to take me wherever it wanted. I didn’t know these things before. I was spending all my energy trying to change the past…
That can’t be done.
Does knowing these things make life any easier? Nah, nothing worth having is rarely easy. But if you want to have a say in what happens in your life, it is worth every scary, uncertain step of the way. Once you are firmly on this path, life becomes more enjoyable no matter what comes your way.
There are no guarantees in life. Why not take a risk and see what happens? Contact me to see if having a life coach is right for you.
