A coach can help you get from point A to B faster than you could on your own, and advance your career and life quickly.
- You feel stuck or uncertain in some area of your life, or you would like to change things to feel happier.
Coaching isn’t a crisis intervention. Nor is it a substitute for psychotherapy. If you feel like you can make some changes to feel better and have a more fulfilled life, it´s time to hire a coach.
- You want YOU to be and feel better.
Just because most things are going well, doesn’t mean you can’t improve on them and yourself. Many people hire a coach because they know they are built for more and they want to reach their full potential sooner, rather than later.
- You’re going through a big transition.
Change can be difficult, even when it’s what you want. Anytime you go through a big transition such as starting a new business or career, getting divorced or getting married, moving to a new city, going back to school, etc.; it’s a great time to have someone who believes in you and who can help you make the most crucial choices as smoothly as possible.
High achievers tend to be driven and successful, but they don’t always create the success they really want. If you’re ever wondered, “Is this all there is?”, or “How did I get myself into this and how do I get out?”, you could really benefit from working with a great coach. A good coach can see you as you are, without judgment. They can help you be your best and achieve what you’re built to do.
- You want more meaning in your life.
“Meaning” is what makes your heart sing. It generally comes from doing what matters most to you. This gets much easier when you understand what you most value and find cool ways to express it. If life feels a little shallow, or you don’t know why you do what you do anymore, you could really benefit from working with a great coach.
- You want to upgrade the people in your life.
I don´t know about you, but I used to choose my friends according to who I had the most fun with. They weren’t always the nicest or most evolved people. Eventually, I realized I wanted to upgrade my friendships. Then I realized, I needed to upgrade myself in order to attract the people I wanted to spend more time with.
- You want to make more money.
Let’s face it, a great life or career usually includes money, sometimes lots of it. Many people hire coaches when they want to upgrade their careers or launch a new business. The funny thing is that values, high standards, good relationships, etc., tend to make people more successful in many areas, including how they handle finances. One thing a great coach can do is help you get over any internal blocks you may have about making plenty of money.
- You’re willing to invest in yourself.
This is about so much more than money. Are you prepared to take the time, effort, risk, and yes, money, in order to have the life or business of your dreams? Or are you satisfied playing small? Are you ready to stop talking about your dreams and start living them? If you had the right coach in your corner, would you have the courage to step into your greatness? Only you can answer that.
