The Life Coaching Process
Life Coaching is a process and partnership created to assist you in personal growth, empowerment, achievement, and transformation. A Life Coaching session is a time that you set aside to focus specifically on you and your priorities. Each session will help you to improve your understanding of who you are and how best to communicate that to others. It will help you clarify what is essential and most meaningful to you. The Life Coaching process will reveal your capabilities, strengths, and give you the tools you need to be more focused, responsive, and improve your ability to connect. Lastly, with the help of your coach, you will disrupt and replace outdated and unhealthy habits, face your fears and become more actionable and accountable.
Making The Most of Your Life
I can’t think of anyone who, deep inside, doesn’t want to be their best version of themselves. Can you? Sadly, many of us get derailed from pursuing our best selves somewhere along life’s path. It is in these times that we can quickly disconnect from our authentic selves, health, happiness, and our dreams. When we find ourselves in this situation we have a good sense of what we needed to do but lack the understanding of how to make the necessary changes and corrections. That’s when finding the right help and guidance makes all the difference.
The Challenges of Change
Learning how to navigate the changes, novelties, and uncertainties of life without a guide and map is akin to setting sail alone on the open sea without any experience or destination. It doesn’t take long before you become lost, scared, and are just drifting by. This is not really living – it is surviving. Fortunately, no one is destined to be stuck on survival mode. Each and every one of us has untapped resources within us to learn, grow, change, and transform ourselves and our relationships. We can thrive.
Change can be overwhelming, especially alone. Part of what makes change and transformation difficult is our complexity. We are both multidimensional and dynamic. And, if that weren’t enough, not only are we learning, remembering, and evolving, we are also discovering how to relate to everything and everyone. That’s a lot to try to understand and work with, especially if you don’t have healthy role models and experiences to rely upon. It is important to note that a state of confusion caused by escalating tension and pressure significantly changes your perception. When confusion is unresolved, a gridlock can occur. Often this presents as chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. These intense and persistent emotions can quickly highjack your vision and sense of self. As a result, a person can become defensive, withdraw, isolate and feel numb. When this happens, it’s helpful and often necessary to get an outside perspective to assist.
Today it’s easy to be bombarded with information. This makes it difficult to decipher truth from fiction. If that weren’t challenging enough, often, we feel pressure to perform to other people’s standards. Our family, culture and past experiences can cause us to betray our true nature. When you add these realities to the different challenges of daily life, it is easy to lose sight of who you are and what’s truly meaningful and fulfilling.
Our dreams don’t die easily. We are naturally filled with desire, it is a necessary and vital part of life. The challenge we face, however, is when we set our sights on the big picture without having a full understanding of what it takes, we, more often than not, end up going down a lot of rabbit holes. Those rabbit holes can unintentionally cause us to get sucked into expecting too much too soon and concluding too quickly. When we expect too much too soon, we can easily become discouraged and give up on ourselves and our dreams.
Other sources of frustration come from comparing ourselves to others and feeling like an imposter. This can cause us to lose focus on the next step and believe we should be further ahead than we really are. Imposter syndrome comes from feeling like we are faking our way through something instead of embracing what is true. Life is full of trial and error. That will not change. How you relate to feedback is critical to being able to most of your life. Just to be clear, that old idiom “fake it till you make it” is not the path to empowerment. Many people wear masks hiding their authentic selves for fear of being seen. It is only when you harness the courage to remain aligned to your integrity and accepting of who you are that you discover how to access your courage, grit, and follow-through.
Transformation is an inside job. No one can do it for you. The requirements are simple – be curious, open, and willing. The coaching process will guide you to know the answers from within.
Through Life Coaching, you will learn how to become more self-aware and mindful. You will develop the ability to work with your thoughts, emotions, and feelings, which will empower you to make more positive and healthful choices. These changes will improve your perception and as a result, you will experience improvements in your level of self-care, self-acceptance, and feelings of being at home in your skin.
Coaching helps you to prioritize what is truly important and provides you with tools to help you keep your goals in sight. When challenges do appear, and they will, your life coach helps you to shift your focus from reacting to your problems to responding from a place of expanded awareness. This significant shift in your paradigm increases your capacity to see more opportunities and provides you with more clarity, inspiration, and resolve.
