3 Reasons Why You Should Get a Coach
Updated: Oct 16, 2019
Reason 1: Because it is very hard to get perspective by ourselves on what is happening in our brain.
How many times have you tried to make a plan and then decided to leave it for later? It is so hard to do it for ourselves… so, get a coach! Coaching helps you take control of your decisions and understand that you alone are the reason why something is not moving forward. Sometimes it’s the way we think about quitting or failing. It is ok to worry, and feel the way we feel. The question is: how do we choose to respond? Is something paralysing us? Do we feel like there is no meaning to our journey? Sometimes we need perspective in our lives. Coaching gives you just that.
Reason 2: Because you need to know what is cluttering your mind and help to find solutions for it.
It is not just knowing what is on your mind, it is analysing those thoughts and understanding what needs to go or stay! This happens at work but in our personal lives as well. What is it that you want to have less of and more of? How do you want to focus your time? How often have you been stuck, and not sure how or where to start? Coaching can unlock those blockages by pushing you outside your comfort zone.
Reason 3: Because you can learn tools to help yourself for the rest of your life.
A great thing is that coaching is not a static experience. You get fantastic tools /exercises that you can use again and again - in other times or situations. A coach’s goal is to help you to help yourself. Understanding the reaction and what happens. Once you get better self-awareness with the help of a coach, you can just move on. You can get back in control of your own experiences, sometimes after doing just a few sessions, or sometimes with follow-up sessions every 6 months to a year, if needed. Coaching is not reliving your past, but reliving the peak moments of your life that gave you meaning or purpose.
Ps: Coaches usually offer a first free session. They like to call it a “Chemistry session”. Make the most of it! To find out more about my Chemistry sessions, please see my next blog post.
