You are feeling pretty good about your work, relationships and lifestyle most of the time, but you have to admit that you just aren’t at 100% or even close. Something is holding you back and you know you are capable of more, but you aren’t acting on it. If this sounds like, you, let me be blunt – it may be time to stop struggling on your own, and hire a coach.
If you are wondering if you need therapy or coaching, maybe my perspective can help. Therapy can take you from terrible to tolerable, or from tolerable to good, but if your life is already good and you want more, you need a coach. Therapy helps us to gain insight and improve our functioning in daily life by decreasing the symptoms of mental disorders such as anxiety or depression.
Coaching is for mentally healthy people who want more from life than what they have now, but just aren’t getting there on their own. A great coach asks you the kind of questions you aren’t asking yourself and helps you take action toward your goals. The focus is on the future, not the past, on solutions, not problems. If what you want is change, and a path to get you there, you need a coach.
As the years fly by, it’s so easy to get stuck in habits, routines & even relationships we’ve outgrown without ever even realizing it. We rarely question whether the things we chose so long ago still serve us. Once we’ve settled into our comfort zone, most of us fail to notice that over time, it’s become, well, pretty uncomfortable.
Facing that awareness takes courage because our identity is wrapped up in our patterns. Then one day, it’s as though we suddenly stop hitting the snooze button and realize it’s time for change. We can have a second chance at creating a life that is full of meaning, connection and fulfillment and there is plenty of time to do that, if we get started now.
