Okay, so there is a lot of buzz lately about Coaches...there is Life Coaches, Transformational Coaches, Health Coaches, Visibility Coaches, *Confidence Coaches, Relationship Coaches, Business Coaches, Empowerment Coaches and the list goes on and on! I'm going to be real with you...they are all the same! We all have the same training and we will all work on whatever it is that is keeping you from having the life that you want. Your LIFE consists of EVERY SINGLE area you can think of! As Coaches, we are trained to ask you specific questions that no one else will dare ask you. The technique is for you to dig deep and actually say OUT LOUD what your problem is. The truth is that deep down you already know what's holding you back but you continue to push it to the back of your mind because it might either be too painful to deal with or you're just plain lazy! (I just got harsh for a second!) Whether you're looking to lose weight, find a man, get a promotion, find your purpose, etc. it all comes down to one thing - YOUR CONFIDENCE!
Now it baffles me that some people dismiss Coaches and don't find their work to be credible. Let me paint a picture for you to prove you wrong...
From the time your mother spent hours in labor with you until maybe about high school you've had a coach or someone to guide us through life or tell us what to do (sometimes whether we liked it or not!), right?
Then all of a sudden we are sent out into the real world and it's like someone dropped us off in the middle of nowhere with no food, no money, no water or clothes... Let's face it, you've officially started your own series of Survivor! Let's Get Through Life! Overnight it feels like you have all of these responsibilities...find a job, make money to pay your bills, put a roof over your head and you dream of not eating ramen noodles every night! THEN on top of it all, you're supposed to be happy! WTF!
What's worse is that looking back you feel like every decision you ever made has been the wrong one. You find yourself looking in the mirror saying, "How the hell did I get here? What am I doing wrong?! How come everyone else is happy and I'm sitting here forcing a smile pretending like 'it's all good!'?!"
In my case, I can't tell you how many times I looked up in the mirror and wanted to shed a tear because I was completely miserable and didn't accomplish anything I set out to do and now I was just trying to "get by" every day. Day after day I would try to accept my mediocre job, my mediocre life, living paycheck to paycheck...but it was SO HARD! I couldn't force that smile ANY longer!
Anyway, my point is that maybe if we all continued to have coaches after High School and College than maybe we would be in a better place. We would have achieved our goals faster and gotten clarity in what we wanted to do (Let's be serious- they ask you to pick a major in college when you're 17- who the F knows what they want to be when they are 17?!?!). That really upsets me. I feel like I wasted lots of time and money being confused!
In summary, the reason for this post is to remind you that Coaches keep you accountable to your goals and help you achieve them MUCH FASTER! Coaches come in all forms- teachers, sports coaches, members of the clergy, etc, So why was it perfectly normal to have Coaches surround us and guide us until high school or college, but it's not something we think of having as an adult? A time when having a coach is most important! As adults, we have more responsibility, less time, and A LOT MORE STRESS!
So, how do you like me now?
