Can you remember a time when talking to someone, maybe a friend, a parent, or the person you go to for a heart to heart, you gained clarity, you saw a new perspective, and you thought of what you could do, actions that were suddenly possible solutions. You felt better and happier with yourself and your situation.
And a time when you were at a crossroads. You felt an urge to change, a desire to move on, or a need to improve the status quo. You needed to talk to someone objective, someone who could help guide your thoughts and someone who could facilitate workable ideas. Most importantly, someone who could walk you through this transition, inspiring you, stretching you, challenging you, and monitoring your growth.
A life coach can be your soul mate, your friend, the colleague you talk to, the brother who listens, the aunt who is patient, or your teacher who is nurturing. A life coach can be a trainer, counsellor, mentor, consultant rolled in one. In essence, a life coach is someone who is trained to listen and help create insights, generate new thinking, plan actions and achieve results. A life coach can help you identify your life purpose, map out your life goals, and ultimately transform your life.
