But are these genuine reasons or … convenient excuses? I’m not saying that time, money or connections wouldn’t make things easier sometimes, but it is possible to make changes that take you towards your ideal even without these … if you have the desire and the support to help guide you on your way.
When you work with a life coach, you work with someone who will help you clarify what it is you want from your life, where your priorities actually lie, identify the steps that will start you on your journey towards your goals, and cheer you on as you work to achieve your dreams.
One of the first steps you will take when you work with a coach is to look at which areas of your life – for example, your family, career, fun, finances, or relationships – you are satisfied with … and which areas you feel maybe fall short of where you want them to be. This exercise can come as quite a surprise for some people, but it is an essential first step to direct your thinking about what important things in your life you truly want to change.
Next, your coach will ask you questions designed to encourage you to identify your goal priorities and those important first realistic steps that you can start taking towards your newly identified goals … and then ask you to commit to act on these steps - with dates by which you will have taken this action.
As you achieve these goals, your coach will be on hand to applaud your hard work and then work with you to help you realise your true, full potential.
