Good Tuesday morning to you. Today we continue with our reasons why you should hire a life coach. I’ve been reflecting back to years ago when I was thinking about the life coaching field, and what it is we, as coaches, offer. Today we are going to cover the one thing that sets so many people apart in the learning process of life.
As a coach I offer practical life lessons to help you learn versus a textbook-style learning. So many people today have become used to our current education system. But I want to think about how many of our world’s success stories never obtained a college degree. How many of them never got to college? How many of them never finished high school?
This past year, I read the story of Steve Jobs and how he left college. It’s not so much the fact that he didn’t earn a college degree but the story of him taking courses that mattered to him that struck me. He continued to study, taking a class here and there of interest to him. One class he took was in Calligraphy; it interested him. Well, if you know that story it is because of that class that we have the different fonts on our computers today. Sometimes life has small pleasures that bring us far more learning.
Did you ever play a game and learn something about yourself based on the results of that game? When attending a life-enrichment seminar years ago, the concept was told of games and how you can learn so much about someone by the way they play a game. Then last year, I met Jenifer Luney and her great networking event B-Harmony. Her purpose is to get people to learn who they might want to do business with by having a fun time playing a game together. Games are a great way to learn more about yourself.
As a coach, I ask people to do exercises. Then we use the experience to help them realize how they do things. Imagine if you could learn something with an exercise or a task that makes it sink in? You can now find growth to get past something that may have puzzled you for years. We, as coaches, use the tools and experience of life to help you learn.
I have often used places and things as examples to show people the ways they have built up fear. Then I’m able to use an exercise and show them that the fear was something they built in their minds. I remember the time I was able to show a young lady that she really did trust by using a small exercise of getting her to walk on a wall that was around a lookout over a valley. In life we all need to learn more about ourselves. As coaches, we like to find those ways to get you past the things that keep you from success. Then we give you a small exercise and relate it to your life.
So why should you hire a life coach? Today’s reason is that we help you, through practical lessons, learn that you can be the successful person you have always wanted to be. And, through those same practical lessons and tasks, we help you get there. So what is keeping you from getting your free life coach session to find out how we could help you?
