What Life Coaching Can Do For You
Most of us know our problems, but we don’t have a clear solution or way of solving it. Without a clear picture and process, it is easy to become overwhelmed and shut down. The life coaching process helps you to find clarity.
It’s not enough to envision the right outcome. To succeed, you have got to be honest with yourself about your knowledge, skills, and capabilities. A life coach will guide you to see your blind spots, acknowledge what is not working, accept responsibility for your part, and identify a plan and path to take action and move forward. It is only then that you will be able to set specific, measurable, realistic, and time-sensitive goals that keep you accountable and on track.
When you make your life and dreams your priority, you will improve your quality of life and relationships. Online Life Coaching will guide you to align with your best self and empower you to become more than you thought possible.
A Little History
The Life Coaching industry was birthed, in part, from a shift in focus within the field psychology. In the late1990s, Dr. Seligman, as president of the America Psychology Association, addressed his peers with the intent to refocus attention on growth, mastery, drive, and character-building. It was at this moment that Dr. Seligman became known for what we now call, positive psychology. Today, researchers, scientists, and psychologists are just as interested in understanding what makes individuals thrive as they have been in studying diseases and mental illness.
Life Coaching not only has roots in psychology and, quite obviously, in the athletic industry. It was also furthered by Thomas Leonard, an American financial planner. Thomas founded the first formal coach-training program. He wanted to help his clients become better planners and achieve their dreams. He was instrumental in establishing the International Coaching Federation.
The need for professional encouragement and guidance has now created a 2 billion dollar industry built on personal growth, empowerment, achievement, and transformation. Today, more than ever, an individual can aspire to create a meaningful and satisfying life.
