Unlocking Your Full Potential: 5 Reasons to Hire a Life Coach

At this point, many of us have heard about Life Coaches, but I bet you really have no idea how Life Coaching can help you.  As a matter of fact, many of you feel that Life Coaching can’t help you at all. But that’s where you are mistaken. A Life Coach is the “un-niched” generalist of the coaching world. Much like a Family Doctor, we coach on a very broad level, in multiple areas of your life experience. I happen to think we should be the first point of contact before venturing into the specialties of coaching. Just as you don’t head directly to a surgeon for the ache in your side, a Life Coach can help you diagnose exactly who and what you need to ease the pain…and if a specialist is in order, they can help you find the right one for you.

But why coach?

Perhaps you’ve been thinking about it but really can’t seem to come up with a reason to invest. Well, I want to help you with that. Coaching can be a valuable and life-changing tool and I would hate for you to miss out on the opportunity because you didn’t fully understand the benefits. So, keep reading and learn the top five reasons people coach.

No. 1: Urgency

People choose Life Coaching when their current reality is overbearing.  The water is up to their nose and they need immediate relief. Many of us have been in this same space. The pain and frustration of lack, loneliness, failure, disruptions, disappointment, and discouragement simply become too much. You’ve tried to do more, be more, or have more but your efforts have been fruitless and you can take another minute of living in this situation. Research says that humans don’t change until they have to. In my experience, I find it to be a heartbreaking reality. However, in this instance, coaching is the solution that you want. A seasoned and professional coach can help you get the pain under control, and help you to strategize your way to recovery.

No. 2: Stuck in Place

Who of us has not felt stuck in place, at some point or another?  You just simply don’t know what your next move should be and so you stay “stuck” in a career you despise, a relationship that has reached its expiry date, and that financial crisis that has plagued you for years. Your brain tells you, “You’ve tried everything and there’s nothing more to do.” However, that’s you in the middle of the forest, unable to see your way out. It doesn’t mean that there’s no way out. A good Life Coach can help you quiet the naysayers in your head and identify the number of options available to you, as well as forge a new path towards your vision of choice. Before you know it, you’ve escaped the quicksand that tried to pull you under and are headed toward your dreams.

No. 3: Expedite Success

In our fast-paced world, everyone is in a hurry to achieve their goals and dreams. People are seeking ways to expedite their journey to success. Life Coaching can help you do that!  You see figuring things out on your own, also known as The School of Hard Knocks, has its own drawbacks. Wasted time, money, and energy. Not to mention the lumps, bumps, and broken hearts.  Ambitious people have no time for learning that way.  They hire experts to help them achieve their goals with expediency.  They want wealth today. They want excellence today.  They want the lover, six pack, and peace of mind…TODAY. So, they hire a Life Coach to help them accelerate their personal and professional growth, enabling them to achieve results more quickly and efficiently.

No. 4: Proven Path

Life Coaches are like seasoned trail guides. Let me ask you this. If you wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail, would you hire a guide who has walked the trail many times and knows the ins and outs of successfully making it out alive or would you hire the guide who read about it and tells you how you’ll “discover” the trail together? I don’t know about you but my life is important and I want the expert. One reason you want the expert is because he walked the trial many times. He knows where to go, what to do, and what not to do. You’re basically putting your life in his hands. Life Coaching is a professional career and we are trained tested and certified to do what we do. Additionally, we do this every…single…day. We are trained to guide you towards your destination without rolling an ankle.

No. 5: Accountability

The most self-aware clients choose Life Coaching for the accountability piece.  They already know that their focus will sway and all it takes is a furry little squirrel to get them off the beaten path. Accountability is a key factor in coaching because no process, strategy, or technique matters if you don’t show up for the game. Life coaches keep their clients accountable, helping them maintain focus and momentum while staying committed to their goals. Change isn’t easy. Our minds are set up for Netflix and chill, not hard work, grind, or hustle. It’s a constant battle of wills. However, it helps more than you can ever imagine to have someone in your corner, motivating you towards the finish line.

Hopefully, you can now identify at least one clear reason why you too should hire a Life Coach. Look…struggling is highly overrated. I can tell you from my personal experience.  There is nothing cute and sexy about doing it alone. So why would you? Just as you would sit and suffer through the aches and pains in your body, there is no need to suffer in a life that doesn’t suit you. Life Coaching is the balm you’ve been looking for.
