some people have asked why life coaching?

Ken Blanchard an icon on leadership and personal development said,  “I believe no matter how successful we are, we all need a coach to encourage us, to challenge us, to remind us to live up to our potential.”   

Our lives are busy and we try to extract value from every moment or at least that is what we are thinking.   We plow through the day, sometimes thoroughly exhausted, to face yet another day filled with things to do.   You might in a moment of reflection realize that all this busyness isn’t providing you with anything meaningful.   Life has just become a habit, a routine and endless sea of the same thing and at some point there is the realization that there should be something better.   What is that better thing?

Here’s some statistics about what coaching can do.

There seems to be a body of growing evidence that coaching is helping people discover themselves, their purpose, mission and value in life.  

Coaching provides great benefits for a low investment in time and money.  

Jim Rohn one of the great business thinkers and philosophers said of coaching, ” The few who DO are the envy of the many who only watch.”  

So why coaching?   Because it works, because it can powerfully transform ordinary living into meaningful living, purposeful living, and intentional living.

What is Life Coaching?

Are you marching in place lacking the desire and energy to have your life come alive? Have you reached a plateau in personal or career performance? Do you see yourself looking out at a world and thinking you don’t fit?

Have you set goal after goal only to see each one of them disappear from your memory after a few days or weeks? Are you just growing tired of the constant daily battles that seem to rob you of strength, ideas and joy?

If life is like eating a stale cracker then it is time for a change. If there is no reason to get out of bed in the morning it is time for a change.

If you are thinking that there is more to life than what you have today then you are ready to have someone help you move beyond the barriers, the walls, and the complacency.

A life coach can help you chart a new course so that life can become all that it is meant to be.

Coach with HEART is accomplished by being Humble, Encouraging, Acknowledging Relational and Trustworthy, HEART.

The goal is to raise your personal performance bar a few notches and maybe more than a few, many notches higher. Can you see yourself filled with more energy, taking more risks, succeeding more often and enjoying the fruits of your work? I hope you can.
