“What you seek is seeking you.”
— Rumi —
If you’re wondering what a life coach does, they help you “learn from your past, live in the now, and work towards your future”.
A life coach brings out your confidence by guiding you through your life and all that holds you back from being your true self. A life coach’s skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and providing you with the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself. They assess your approach to your life and redirect your focus from the unnecessary to the beneficial.
“Part consultant, part motivational speaker, part therapist and part rent-a-friend, life coaches work with managers, entrepreneurs, and just plain folks, helping them define and achieve their goals — career, personal, or most often, both.” – Newsweek
A life coach’s primary goal is to keep you in the now. A stunning majority of people in the world either live in their past, unable to move on; or in their possible futures. By keeping you current and in the now, a life coach navigates your life’s waters with you just as you project it to them. This brings to light areas of improvement which as a person wading in those waters, you might not notice. These AOI may be changes to your personality, communication or even thought process. Using the power of suggestion and positive reinforcement, a life coach can help you train your mind in the direction you would like your life to go.
