Is your life stuck in a rut? Are you disappointed by your lagging career? Do you feel like you're not living up to your fullest potential?
Then maybe what you need is a coach. Just like the coaches who push athletes to achieve greatness in sports, life and wellness coaches push their clients to achieve success in their career, relationships, or lifestyle.
Unlike sports coaches, life and wellness coaches don't focus on changing specific behaviors, like correcting a bad swing in baseball. Instead, they develop their clients' overall strengths and abilities, according to the International Coach Federation. That's the governing organization for the coaching profession.
What Is a Life Coach?
Just about everyone has a vision of his or her ideal life. Maybe you've always dreamed of becoming a successful writer, musician, or corporate executive. Yet your vision hasn't quite made the leap from your mind to reality.
That's where a life coach steps in. Life coaches provide the incentive and direction their clients need to improve their careers, relationships, and lives. They help clients to:
Hone in on their skills and ambitions.
Refocus their life's goals.
Overcome obstacles that stand in the way of achieving goals.
