People often ask me: “So what is it that you actually do?”
The simple answer is I am a life coach. Well, I studied Executive Coaching, but I prefer the life coach moniker.
“So, what exactly does a life coach do then?”
I guess each “life coach” will have their own idea as to exactly what they do. For me, it is not about what I do but rather why I do it.
You see, I do not do this as a job. This is my passion. This is who I am. My greatest joy comes from watching people transform as we move through our coaching journey together. I love seeing people stepping up and taking control of their lives. To me, this is my reward. It is who I have become, and it is the outplaying of my grandest dreams for myself.
Each of us has a deep well of vital life energy that, given the correct tools, we can draw from as and when we need. The unfortunate reality is that we are not taught how to access this part of ourselves. Yes, there are hundreds of self-help books out there, there are numerous programs, courses, and gurus who are willing to tell you exactly what to do. All of this is great, and it has become a massive industry, purely because each book, course or program plants a seed of potential that is hard to germinate when itis not planted in the correct environment.
We have a bookcase of self-help books at home, and they are all extremely valuable. However, many of those books I have had for years and read many times without seeing any real results in my life.
The key to transformation is in taking massive action. We need to create the ideal environment for those seeds to germinate. It is all good knowing how to lower the bucket down to draw water from the well, but unless we act and physically lower the bucket and bring up the life-giving water we will die of thirst. How often have you had a casual conversation with someone who seems to have all the answers to life great questions, yet they themselves are still stuck in a situation that they cannot escape. Ideas are easy. Everyone has great ideas. The implementation of them differentiates the successful people from the herd.
So, what is it exactly that I do?
Think of me as your cheerleader. The person in your life who believes in you and your ideas. The one who will encourage you to follow through on your dream and tell you how amazing you really are. I truly believe that each one of us is amazing in our own right. We are all unique and within that uniqueness lies beauty and amazing potential. I will help you discover that part of yourself.
I am a pusher. I push you to become the best version of yourself. I will get you to question your “why” and help you get a different perspective on life. It is my job to make you question what makes you continue to hold onto habits that no longer serve you, and help you get to a place where you can start making conscious choices in your life.
I am your loyal confidant. I will support you and I will always be there to listen to you. I am the person with whom you can share your mind, your hopes, dreams, and fears. Whatever you tell me remains between us; I am your safe space. You will have someone who listens without judgment. How badly do you need to have someone who will listen to you and hear what you have to say someone who will not judge you or try talk you out of your dreams and someone who is able to maintain confidentiality?
I am your accountability partner. You will not only find me holding you accountable to your commitments, but you will also find yourself feeling more energized. I have an infectious zest for life and you to will begin to experience this. I am optimistic, and I will encourage you to dream big. You will leave your coaching engagement feeling inspired, energized and ready to take back control of your destiny.
Do I guarantee that you will achieve all your dreams? No. That is up to you. What I can guarantee you is that your life will change to the degree that you commit and take action.
The books on my bookshelf are no longer good reads, they are guides to help me take the correct action in pursuit of the things that really matter to me. I made the shift when I engaged a coach for the first time. I have since used other coaches, and I regularly chat with other coaches to keep myself at the top of my game.
If you want to see radical shifts in your life, then give me a call. Right now, you are probably 80% of the way there, you most likely have the knowledge and the drive to live a more complete life. I can offer you the tools to put this knowledge into action and help you make the transformation you desire.
If you are ready to invest in yourself and take action to change your circumstances, then book a slot in my diary and let’s have a chat to see if coaching is the answer that you are looking for.
