Good question! Really, we’re all here living Life. It should come naturally, you’d think. In truth much of life does come naturally or instinctively. We breathe without thinking, eat when we’re hungry, rest when we’re tired. We dance or laugh when we’re happy, cry and console when we’re sad, express ourselves creatively, solve puzzles and problems.
So what’s the deal here anyway? Why do people seek out the services of a Life Coach? We think of coaches as those teachers who have some expertise to share usually in sports but we also have teachers for the arts and sciences and more now we’re seeing financial, business, weight loss, nutrition and healthy living coaches.
What IS a Life Coach? What kind of expertise does a Life Coach have to offer anyone? Are they experts at living Life? What constitutes an expertise in that? And what motivates someone to become a Life Coach? Are they successful at living Life and what would that success look like?
In the living of Life we encounter challenges. These challenges range from minor and insignificant to major and traumatic or dramatic (like a flat tire or an earthquake). How do you cope with these challenges? How do you perceive and react to them?
A Life coach has in the experiences of his or her challenges come to a deeper understanding of herself and how to respond effectively and positively to them thereby living Life with more ease, contentment and joy no matter what Life brings. This knowledge doesn’t come easily. A Life coach has also worked on the deeper issues within that have affected her life. She has come to know herself on a deeper level and through continuing to explore and work on herself reach new levels of understanding. She has also been Coached or Guided to the point where her own inner guidance becomes sharper and clearer and not only can she read herself she can read others.
Many of us reach a point in our lives when we sense that life could be different or better for us. And we decide to ask for help or guidance. What we’re asking for is assistance in:
- steering a new course
- to make positive changes
- to know ourselves better
- to begin to make your dreams come true.
A Life coach or guide has the means to point the direction
- for you to develop your own inner knowledge
- to help you see the things you perpetuate that block you from leading the Life you wish to live.
A Life Coach holds a light by which you begin to see yourself in truth whereby you can make the changes you want to make.
Love and Light,
Certified Golden Flow ™ Coach
