Hello, my friends. And happy new week to you! As many of you know, I am a certified Life Coach. And I looooove what I do.
The question is… What exactly is it that I do? Am I right? Life Coaching is not something new, and yet, it’s also something that’s been kinda trendy lately. Although, I been doing it (without my fancy pansy life coaching certification) for my entire professional life. That’s like 20 years. I didn’t call it life coaching back then. And, in many ways, I only call it that now because I have a “title” and it seems to be something that people can relate to.
But, believe me, I have struggled with that title. A BUNCH. However, I have fully embraced it now. Only with some of my own twists and definitions and descriptions. One thing I really picked up in my training, with my other life coach colleagues, was that we were all so different. With different experiences, purposes, and goals. And that means that we define + do life coaching differently.
So, I figured that it was time for me to lay all of my life coaching stuff out there. To let you know where I come from, what I’ve done, and most importantly, what I believe life coaching is. You need to get to know me a bit before you decide if:
a). having a life coach is something that you need/want right now.
b). if you and I are a good fit. That is, does it seem like I have something to offer you at this point in your life. Am I the right life coach for you?
To help you answer all of those burning questions you have about life coaching, and who I am as a life coach, I am going to start a weekly series focused on giving you those answers. Think of it as a little “get to know Liz the Life Coach” kind of thing. Over the next few weeks, on Mondays, I am going to share my thoughts, experiences, education, beliefs, personality, and hopefully open up a dialogue between us.
I don’t want this whole life coaching thing to seem like just the trendy thing to do right now, or to seem like something that is from-frooey, or something that is just a plain mystery to you. I want you, should you or someone you know, to feel empowered + knowledgable about what a life coach is + how I “do” life coaching. I want you to know so that you can make an informed, confident decision about getting in touch with me, or any other life coach that might seem a better fit. So, let’s get started.
Today I want to share with you 11 reasons why you should have a life coach. I seriously believe this. At different points in our lives we all need a little outside ear to listen, frame, and help us find the answers that we already have tucked deep inside us. And, there are so many different reasons we may be searching for answers. And so many different moments in life that we find ourselves seeking a little guidance. Here are just a few of the common times in life when it just might be good to ring up your friendly neighborhood life coach (whether it’s me or someone else), to help you start to dig deep + find what you are seeking.
11 good reasons to meet with a Life Coach (there are many more!)
→ You have experienced a dramatic (good or bad) change in life lately
→ You find yourself pondering life questions
→ You are dissatisfied with work
→ You want to do something you feel passionate about
→ You want to improve your quality of life (health, love, work, spirituality, etc.)
→ You are questioning who you are, what you believe, and/or your values
→ You have peaked in what you set out to do and want to find something else that excites you
→ You are entering a new stage of life and want something meaningful to pursue
→ You feel you have a purpose or destiny in life and want to discover and fulfill it
→ You are simply ready for a change
What do you think? Do any of these reasons resonate with you? Or do you know someone who might be in one of these places in life? Hit me up with an email if you’d like to chat or ask questions. And, the first 30 minute consultation session is free! Stay tuned for next week’s post – I’ll be sharing my definition of life coaching. You know, in the end, it’s really all about creating the life that we want. Have a beautiful week, my lovelies!
