Remember when you were a child and everything seemed possible?
One of the many benefits of life coaching is that it helps you to rediscover possibilities.
Do you set goals and get disappointed when you get derailed?
The probability of achieving a goal if
- You have an idea – 10%
- You decide when you’ll do it – 40%
- You plan how you’ll achieve it – 50%
- You make a commitment to someone that you’ll do it – 65%
- You make an appointment to report back to the person you made the commitment with – 95%
You are much more likely to succeed when you make a commitment and have someone to report back to on your progress.
Now, imagine having someone to cheer you on and hold you accountable to be and do your best …
“Throw off everything that hinders and the sin that easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus … so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Heb 12:1-3
You can’t win the race if you don’t know where you’re going!
Christian life coaching helps you to train for the race of life. Coaching helps you to clarify your goals, remember where you’re headed, and remember why you started out, and what achieving your goals will give you.
Some Of The Many Benefits Of Life Coaching
The main benefit of life coaching is that it gives you a listening ear, and a wise sounding board in a safe, non-judgmental, confidential environment – somewhere safe to explore your ideas and get constructive feedback.
When you encounter major changes in your life – a new job, a house move, the death of a loved one, or retirement – you face uncertainty and the need to make major adjustments. Friends, family and church may give support and encouragement. A life coach helps you to reassess your life, find new career options, change your lifestyle, get appropriate training, re-evaluate your finances, and find information that enables you to make wise decisions.
Life coaching helps you to
- Take your dreams off the shelf
- Envisage what you can achieve with God’s help
- Overcome self-defeating habits and insecurities
- Improve your relationships
- Develop new competencies
- Find new strategies that work for you
Coaching helps you to rediscover your passions, so you can line up your life with what’s important to you. When you work with a life coach you will benefit in many ways. You will
- Develop greater awareness
- Discover what you really want from life
- Decide what’s most important to you
- Set priorities and keep your focus on what matters most
- Make better, more informed decisions
- Explore and evaluate all the possibilities so that you can be sure the path you choose is the best one for you.
Coaching will benefit you by helping you to set goals you really want to achieve by distinguishing between what you could do, should do, ought to do and really want to do. When you create an ideal goal – something you really want – you’re much more likely to take action to achieve it.
A life coach works with you to create a step by step plan – a dynamic, workable plan that enables you to achieve your dreams. Your coach will gently nudge and encourage you to deal with realities that need to be faced and addressed so that you won’t get tripped up along the way.
You will find it easier to identify obstacles and explore strategies to get past them. You’ll be able to reach for more and maintain a balanced life while doing it. You’ll have more time for people and things you value, so you’ll feel more fulfilled.
A life coach helps you to see what’s working in your life. You’ll learn to do more of what’s working so you can have more success and feel more fulfilled. Finding solutions for what isn’t working will help you to press on and enjoy success.
You’ll be able to identify and overcome limiting beliefs. Coaching helps you to uncover patterns that have kept you from making changes so that you can break free from self-defeating habits, successfully pursue your dream and go beyond previous limitations.
Life coaching paves the way for lasting change. You’ll be able to stick with things until they get done because you have support and encouragement.
A coach encourages you to find the courage to give yourself permission to do what you really want to do – it’s so much easier when you have someone alongside helping you to believe in your God given abilities and cheering you on.
