A coach is to a personal trainer as a therapist is to a doctor. So just as a doctor takes a sick person and makes them well, so does a therapist. A personal trainer takes a healthy person and helps them perform at their peak. A coach does the same, but with the added benefit of not only performance, but of creating their right life - the life they've been dreaming of.
Often an individual will come to coaching with one specific problem in their life they're "stuck" on, but through the work, find that many aspects of their lives improve as a result. This is because a human consciousness cannot create things in a vacuum. As the old adage goes, "How you do anything is how you do everything". So showing up differently in one area of your life will trigger you showing up differently in other areas as well.
It's all about you
We all have blind spots and patterns that keep us from our best lives. A coach will not give you answers, but rather ask profound questions you may have never been asked before, helping you identify those blind spots and find the answer inside yourself.
Many of us are really clear on what we don't want, but not nearly as clear on what we do want. Coaching helps you get clarity not only on what you want, but about what your right life looks like. Then, coaching helps create that life, step by step.
How coaching can improve your life
The result of coaching is unique but also universal. Commitment in the coaching process leads to improved, deeper relationships, greater satisfaction and success professionally, greater abundance financially and across all areas of your life, improved health, a heightened spiritual connection, increased confidence and creativity, a deeper connection to purpose, and increased vitality, verve and power.
How to get the most out of coaching
To get the maximum benefit, you need to show up and be willing to look at yourself in a new way. You need to be open to the truth, and the possibility of change. Being present is key, and commitment to the process is vital. You need to bring an intention to the process - it's hard to get where you want to go if you have no direction.
