Several years ago, I was going through some really tough stuff in my life with my health and personal life and had been seeing a traditional counselor to assist me though the processing of what was happening to me. While counseling is good and helpful, I was so tired of looking backward, talking about my family and all my past relationships. Don't get me wrong, there is a time and a place for all of that. I just got to the point where I was so desperate to look forward and and move past the pain I was feeling in my heart. But I didn't know where to begin.
Enter life coaching. The concept is simple. A "coach" by the Merriam Webster definition is a : private tutor hired a coach to help her daughter prepare for the test b : one who instructs or trains an acting coach a birth coach; especially : one who instructs players in the fundamentals of a sport and directs team strategy a football coach a pitching coach a gymnastics coach.
See there are coaches for just about everything. Passing tests, having babies, getting better at sports. So why not have a coach assist you get better at living a more beautiful life? We do not have all the answers, we have blind spots, we have limiting beliefs, we get stuck. You get the point here. The most successful people in the world all have coaches and you know why? Because they know that their coach will hold them accountable for their progress. They will call them on their bullshit excuses and they will question the very stories they tell themselves to keep them stuck. All these little mind tricks are what holds you back from achieving all that you were put on this earth to do!
There are many different approaches to life coaching. I highly recommend that you find the right coach for you to help you with what you are wanting to achieve. There are business coaches, coaches who focus on relationships, life transitions, health and wellness and much more. But no matter what, if you want a more beautiful life, get a coach period! They will assist you in setting a plan into motion of how to get where you want to go, get you unstuck from your limiting belief systems, hold your feet to the fire to do your homework (yes there is homework). Life coaches make you workout your emotional muscles, create new ways of looking at an issue and if you are OPEN and HONEST, you will grow like you could never imagine. But you gotta do the work. There is no pixy dust and unicorns here. It is hard, emotional work that will net you your ultimate life results.
As Tony Robbins says, "This is your life, make it a masterpiece." Tony Robbins is a master coach and amazing and a hugely successful human being and even Tony has a coach. I challenge you this week to stop making excuses and get a coach. I mean, this is your life we are talking about, you only go around once so go get it girl!
