Who do you call when you have a broken pipe at home? Where do you go when you need a haircut? What if you were looking for legal advice? Would you ask a friend? A neighbor? Your spouse? Only if they happened to be a plumber, hairdresser or lawyer, right? So why not enlist professional help to reach your life goals? It’s not always best to rely on families or friends to support us in achieving our dreams and goals, so where are we supposed to turn?

All coaches at Life Coach Library are certified professionals. A certified life-coach is trained to help guide goal-oriented people to meet or exceed their personal and professional goals. Coaches help clients identify blocks, challenges, and opportunities. They help you get out of your head and act by being your teacher, motivator, think-tank collaborator, accountability partner, and your personal cheerleader!

They aspire to help you reach your goals in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. Who couldn’t use a push sometimes? Who couldn’t benefit from fresh ideas that are outside the box? Who can best hold us accountable than someone detached an objective? THAT someone is a certified life-coach who specializes in the area of life you wish to improve!

You will set better goals with a life coach than you will on your own. A coach will help you uncover what you truly desire and separate that from what you think you “should” do but are not passionate about. They will help you gain clarity on what your priorities and identify your key motivators to keep you on track. Staying true to your values is energizing and motivating and a coach will help you get clear on what those goals really are.

You will save time reaching your goals when you work with a coach. Sure, you will invest a little of your time with a coach, but it will pay dividends! You are less likely to make mistakes or use time inefficiently with the assistance of a coach. The most precious resource that cannot ever be recovered is time. Whether you are someone who wastes time in procrastination, or you work very hard but not always very efficiently, a coach can keep you motivated and laser-focused on the best way to achieve your goal. We all “hit a wall” at some point in our journey and a coach will keep you from getting complacent, or simply “stuck”.

Investing in a coach will save you money in the long run!  How much have you spent on gimmicky ideas promising miracles to reach your goals? Have you invested in resources you later found out you didn’t really need? Have you purchased expensive options thinking they were better, only to find there are more practical ways to accomplish the same end? What has not reaching your goal sooner cost you? Having someone who has accomplished their own dreams give you their undivided attention and help you strategize can have a profound impact on your journey and discern what you really need vs. what marketers are persuading you to buy into.

You will breakthrough the limiting beliefs and fears that have kept you from success in the past. Have you thought about changing careers but think you’re too old? Would you love to be rich but deep down think rich people are greedy? Have you tried to get in shape but believe that not being successful in the past means you never will be? These are only a few examples of the thousands of limitations and fears people often give in to, most of the time without even knowing it. Meeting a goal is almost never about having the information. If you want to change careers, finding the school the offers the program is the easy part, right? Facing the fears or limiting beliefs that get in the way…not so easy! Ask anyone who has tried to lose weight about nutrition, most of them can recite a medical journals description of calories eaten and/or calories burned. Does that get them there? Nope, because it’s the internal beliefs that trigger behaviors that need to be overcome. It’s nearly impossible to do this alone, but a coach will provide a safe space to explore what’s really running in the background and make impactful changes.

Do you need a coach? Maybe, maybe not. Where do you want to be a year from now? Is your life today what you’d hoped for last year? As a result of making impactful changes and meeting your goals, you will be happier in many areas of your life. Through the coaching process, you will reduce stress and anxiety. You will have a deeper sense of satisfaction because you are living authentically and in line with your values. You will become more influential and attractive to others. As you lose limiting beliefs and gain momentum in creating the life of your true heart’s desire, you will naturally draw attention and people with react to you as a person of leadership and authority. Whether you embark on a new career or simply find a better work-life balance coaching works! The way you experience life will be more positive and gratifying than ever before.

The Vision of Life Coach Library is to make the online coaching experience a WIN WIN for EVERYONE! By offering convenience and heart-felt support, while being fair-minded , clients and coaches together can co-create action plans that result in improved well-being, enhancing the lives of individuals and having a positive impact on the world!

Article: Get “Unstuck” with Association and Disassociation

The number of people who hire coaches increases exponentially every year!! Both Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine agree that It is one of the fastest growing industries in The United States and will continues through 2022 (and beyond) !
“Problems cannot be solved by the same thinking that created them..”
Albert Einstein

Ask yourself, what could you accomplish if you had somebody by your side who is sincerely interested in you and what matters most to you? Whose attention was completely given to you? Who listened carefully and asked questions that helped you look at your life and yourself, in an entirely new way?

Visualize that person believed in you; had confidence in your abilities to accomplish whatever you set out to; encouraged you to act; and who was your confidant, teacher and cheer-leader you when you did.

Picture that person creating a space where you can explore ideas that you might not tell anyone else about, always being respectful and non-judgmental. Picture having someone who is objective, wise, with a wealth of experience and offering valuable insights as your “right-hand” woman or man.

Imagine the things you could do! This is what you can expect from a certified life-coach.

What is Career Coaching?

The goal of a career coach is to support you in making educated decisions about career development tracks and developing a solutions-oriented approach to pursuing your career goals. Being unfulfilled at work or looking for employment often creates negative emotions, including low self-esteem, lack of confidence, anxiety, and fear. Working with a coach will boost your confidence and help you strategize ways to manage feelings that could be factors in your chance of success. They will help empower you to act, overcome setbacks, and maintain your focus. Coaches are highly trained in helping clients engage in a process of self-exploration to uncover any potential behavioral or emotional blockages that could be interfering with achieving success.

What does a Career Coach do?

Professional career coaches are skilled and trained in helping you create a personalized plan designed to meet their goals. A good coach will help you put into words not only what your goals are but how you can best achieve them. There are a number of assessments that career coaches use to help clients , such as the Myers-Briggs Personality Test, or a careers outlook inventory. These help to pinpoint what kind of work and workplaces that are the best fit for someone. A coach will help you put together concrete action steps, including but not limited to: building a resume, cover letter, and social media profile that holds up to key-word scanning software. They can also help you plan negotiations when offers do come.

Career coaches also provide honest and unbiased feedback. Many people turn to family and friends for advice or encouragement when searching for a job. These people mean well but they aren’t always the best to provide feedback. They are likely to be biased, and chances are they are not up to par with the recruitment and interviewing process trends like a professional coach will be. Coaches not only offer objective feedback tailored to your search and career goals, they have an astute understanding about how your talents and aptitude translate into marketable skills.

What things can a Career Coach help with?

  • • Stress and life-work balance
  • • Career path and transition planning
  • • Personal development and confidence building
  • • Communication and presentation skills
  • • Leadership and management skills
  • • Time management
  • • Goal-setting

When do you know you need a Career Coach?

  1. 1. You feel stuck, dissatisfied, or just unhappy.
  2. 2. You know what you want but are not sure how to get it.
  3. 3. You’re contemplating a major change.
  4. 4. You’ve been out of the workforce for an extended period.
  5. 5. You’re not making progress despite your best efforts.
  6. 6. Your resume is getting you the interview but you’re not getting offers.
  7. 7. You’re not sure how to achieve promotions and ask for pay-raises.

As you can see, there are many signs you may need a coach and many benefits to having one. In any case, one of the most grueling experiences in life is job searching and having extra support can never hurt. Hiring a coach does come with a price tag. On average, you can expect to have 8-10 sessions with a coach. However, the long-term benefits can far exceed the investment as this can make the next 20-45 years of your life happier and more fulfilling.

How do I find a Career Coach?

There are many ways to find a coach. One is referral if you know someone who has successfully worked with one in the past. Another is a simple web search, as there are many to be found.

The key for finding the right coach is to talk to a few of them. We recommend three. You want to make sure that you are comfortable working with the coach you choose, and they are knowledgeable about your specific needs. Also, the fees that career coaches charge varies so make sure you find one who meets your budget needs. At Life Coach Library, you simply register and fill out our questionnaire, we will match you with three coaches who will give you a free consultation. Our service is completely free, and we are confident you will find a coach you love!

What is a Business Coach?

A business coach will help aspiring entrepreneurs or current business owners run a business by helping them clarify their goals and execute effective strategies that get results. The process of business coaching takes businesses from where they are now to where they want to be.

After clarifying where an owner would like to take their business, business coaches will help plan and prioritize goals and strategies to progress towards the goals. A business coach connects with the business owner routinely to keep them accountable to commitments as promised.

A coach is not a consultant. The biggest difference is that a consultant focuses on advising their clients on what to do, while a coach will assist them in goal planning and hold them accountable so that they achieve success.

Why should you have a business coach?

Coaches bring years of experience to the table. They help clients create a road-map to reach their goals and ultimate success. They offer an objective perspective on the business strategy and help owners see which tasks need immediate attention and which are long-term objectives. This way, they keep you focused on the results and what is most important right now.

Being successful in business demands consistent hard work. Coaches keep clients motivated through the highs and lows of the business and sales cycles so that they stay the course. A coach and client will form a “think-tank” to generate fresh ideas. A coach will also be a sounding board, listening to ideas without judgement or criticism. One of the most important advantages to having a coach is that they will see your business and personal blind spots because they remain objective and unbiased. They will also help track and measure progress so that you can adjust as needed.

What is a Sales Coach?

Have a fantastic idea of a product or service but need help selling it? Sales coaches help build skills and confidence for navigating both short and long-term sales processes which result in a better closing ratio and more profits.

A seasoned sales coach understands the emotional highs and lows of sales deeply as they have had careers in sales as well. Staying positive and motivated is important in any profession but critical in sales. Having a coach who is your personal cheerleader will boost your enthusiasm and be a healthy release for stress so that it does not interfere with sales performance or your personal life.

Whether you’re in business or in sales, going it alone is tough! The support received from friends, family and colleagues is well intentioned, but often they are too concerned with your feelings and unable to be totally honest. However, with a coach you have someone who knows the industry inside and out giving you their undivided, unbiased attention and offering expertise that took years to develop so you don’t have to.

Take your sales and business to the next level with a business coach!

What is Relationship Coaching?

Relationships affect people every day. Relationships are, in a way, a system. How one person relates typically has a direct impact on the other members in the relationship and how they will relate back. Think of a mobile, the kind that hangs over a baby’s crib. Imagine taking one piece and shaking it up and down. Now, imagine how that effects the way all the other pieces move. They start bouncing up and down right? Well, relationship dynamics are similar in many ways.

What does a Relationship Coach do?

Relationship coaches have experience in various relationship dynamics, from romantic to family relations, friendships, and professional interactions. Relationship coaching is the art and science of co-actively working with individuals, couples, partnerships and teams toward mutually defined goals. The goals coaches help clients achieve range from helping them find bliss in being single, dating, rekindling the spark in a marriage, or increasing professional and social possibilities with better communication skills.

Some of the most common topics a relationship coach will work with are:

• Communicating thoughts and feelings clearly

• Managing emotions so that they are not destructive

• Conflict resolution

• Creating and maintaining intimacy in personal relationships

• Changes in relationship status

Relationship coaches also work with people who are not yet in a relationship. They will work with singles who have a history of troubled relationships, who have difficulty knowing what they want in a relationship or just want to stay on track with their plan to find a deeper connection with someone.

What if my significant other can’t or won’t come?

Sometimes not everyone in the relationship is invited or willing to be coached. It is not always necessary to do coaching with both partners in a relationship. Coaching often helps clients let go of painful thoughts and create their own relationship vision. This means clients are able to improve their relationships without their partner’s participation in the process. Other times coaches will meet with both partners and teach communication, conflict resolution and other skills meant for couples.

Either way, a coach can help you separate what you can and can’t control, guide you around painful issues or hidden resentments, and create a safe place for you to face any limitations or fears so that you may discover your true desires.

Some areas coaches specialize in:

1. Singles Coaching: Not all singles fit any stereotype. Some are single by choice, while others are divorced, widowed, or have given up on looking. If any of these are you, a coach creates the space to discover what you truly value and understands your unique goals and challenges.

2. Couples Coaching: As with singles, not all couples are alike. Some couples are simply “friends with benefits” while others are exclusive but have no long-term commitment, some are transitioning from dating to engagement. These couples often seek coaching because they desire to find a way to successfully solve problems and “live happily ever after.”

3. Family Coaching: This includes immediate and extended families, blended families, parenting & step-parenting, siblings, family businesses and co-housing arrangements.

4. Business Relationship Coaching: Business relationship coaching can include workplace relationships such as manager to employee, peer to peer, between corporate divisions, between teams, as well as customer and vendor relationships. Productive businesses require effective relationships. This leads to greater employee retention.

Relationship Coaching is NOT Couples Therapy

Relationship coaching is a professional client-focused service. The client (s) are assumed to be able to achieve relationship goals with effective support, information, and guidance.

How do I find a Relationship Coach?

There are many ways to find a coach. One is by referral. Another is a simple web search. The key to finding the right coach is to talk to a few of them. We recommend three. When looking for a relationship coach, you really need to find someone you can relate to, who you enjoy talking to and who has experience and training in your area of concerns. Also, the fees that relationship coaches charge vary so make sure you find one who meets your budget needs. At Life Coach Library, you simply register and fill out our questionnaire. We will match you with three coaches who will give you a free consultation. Our service is completely free, and we are confident you will find a coach you love!

What is a Health and Fitness Coach?

A health and fitness coach is a professional who works with an individual or groups that have a health or physical goal, whether it is to eat healthier or have a certain physique. This takes place by way of helping you to make a lifestyle change that helps reach your desired health or physique and maintain it.

What does a health and fitness coach do?

Health and fitness coaches motivate clients who have a desire to reach health and fitness related goals that they may have but have not been able to accomplish by themselves. Some of the more common goals are eating healthy, losing weights and building a desired physique, just to name a few.

The coach helps you to identify roadblocks that have prevented you from attaining your health and fitness goals and works with you to make those goals a reality.

How does this process begin?

– The process begins with a conversation in person or via phone. During the duration of this conversation, you inform the coach what he/she wants to accomplish.

– The coach proceeds to work with the you to create a program that is designed to meet your goals.

– The coach creates a detailed action plan for you outlining each step needed to be taken to achieve your goals, along with foreseeable challenges that might stand in the way of achieving them.

– Your coach guides you through the steps needed to be taken to reach your desired goals. As a team, you and your coach carry out their tasks to make your goals a reality.

– The coach provides the client motivation, support and the necessary tools needed to reach your emotional health and physical goals. The time duration to complete each step towards the goals varies, depending on the individual goal and the clients work ethics. Your coach will hold you accountable to keeping your commitments.

What will YOU be doing?

Your coach will assign you things to do to work towards your goals in between coaching sessions. You will be held accountable for performing those assigned tasks and will receive support along the way from your coach. The length of time from beginning to completion of the goals will depend on when the client and coach agree on a beginning date and ending date. This can range from 3 months to 6 months or even longer if you should want or need more time. The details of this will be discussed and agreed upon by both the client and coach during the initial consultation and revisited if necessary.

How Do You Know You Need a Coach?

Do you feel like you need to make a health change whether it be eating healthier, losing weight or wanting a certain physique but have not been able to accomplish it on your own? Have you achieved some results but you either fell short or the changes did not last? Do you want the above health and physique goals but lack the motivation to be consistent or plan? These are the most common reasons people like you seek out a Health and Wellness coach. They can assist and motivate you, giving you that support and push that you are missing to reach your ultimate success!

How do I find a Health and Wellness Coach?

You can browse the web for a certified health and fitness coach. Sometimes it’s hard to know who to choose and we do recommend you talk to 2-3 coaches to find your best fit. All coaches at Life Coach Library have completed coach training and are certified. Simply register, fill out a questionnaire and we’ll find up to 3 coaches for you to talk to and choose from. Or if you prefer, you may choose a specific coach from our directory and we’ll connect you to them.

Making Goal Oriented Choices

What’s at Stake?

What is a Spiritual Coach?

A Spiritual Coach is a life coach who specializes in helping people find inner peace, harmony, happiness and joy. A Spiritual Coach inspires the client to focus on his/her own inner being and develop an intuitive sense. Different from some life coaches, Spiritual Coaches dive deeper into their client’s beliefs and help shift negative and judgmental thoughts to ones that are more positive and accepting.

Sometimes it is hard to let ourselves be vulnerable and talk about our innermost thoughts about life and humanity. With a Spiritual Coach however, you will find it easier to talk about these in a very meaningful way. They will make you will feel safe when opening up as they listen to you, be your teacher, and help you grow so that life has a deeper meaning. You will strengthen your inner wisdom.

Spiritual Coaches are NOT Religion Coaches

You don’t have to be religious to work with a spiritual coach. Spirituality is defined by the concept that we are all connected somehow and live by certain universal laws. Anyone who simply wants to deepen their understanding of the nonphysical parts of us (our spirits) can deeply benefit from a spiritual coach.

Law of Attraction

Remember the best-selling book “The Secret”? It was based on the Laws of Attraction.

The principles of the Law of Attraction (LOA) are that you have the power within you to get the happiness, relationship, success, health or any other life improvement that you want. A Law of Attraction Coach will inspire you to realize your potential, release unwanted habits and limiting thoughts and move into well-being.

A LOA coach will help you see how you are either sabotaging or manifesting your success by understanding your inner thoughts and energy. They will help you visualize clearly what you want to create because in universal law, a space cannot be filled until you know exactly what you want to fill it with.

When do people work with Law of Attraction Coaches?

If you have tried to change your life repeatedly and have yet to succeed, you might consider a Law of Attraction Coach. Or, if life is good, but something just seems to be missing, a LOA coach will help you discover the missing piece. A LOA Coach helps to uncover what your beliefs are, decide how well they are really serving you in the present, and gain a new perspective so that you attract more of what you want, and less of what you don’t.

Anyone can benefit from working with a LOA Coach if they are openminded and willing to really look inward. Law of Attractionists believe “where thought goes, energy follows” so finding the positive in every present moment is a vital to manifesting your deepest desires.

What is a Recovery or Addictions Coach?

Also known as a Sober Coach, these coaches provide support to people trying to overcome their compulsive, obsessive, addictive behaviors, and/or their families. Many times, family members suffer as deeply as addicts. Growing up in any dysfunctional family environment or being in a relationship with someone who has bad behaviors leads to codependency and something known as an adult child syndrome. The number one priority of people recovering from addictions is to not relapse. A coach helps clients to make smart choices to insure they continue in sobriety.

What does a Recovery Coach do?

A good recovery coach is actively involved in the life of the addict and their families. The act in many roles, such as mentor, leader, spiritual guide, and cheerleader. Just being sober is not enough, you want to be happy and live a meaningful life. A coach helps develop the skills to live a full life without the use of drugs or alcohol and to thrive. They do not promote or endorse any single or way of achieving or maintaining sobriety or serenity. The client is in control of their choices and beliefs; the coach supports the client in sticking to their goals.

Here are just a few examples of what a coach might do for you:

  • – Be available whenever you need them. Unlike a sponsor, who is a volunteer, a coach works for you. If you need them at 3 a.m. because you think you might use, they will be there.
  • – Hold you accountable. Everyone has different triggers so a coach will help you come up with a plan that meets your needs and they will make sure you do what you say you will.
  • – Provide support and resources. Navigating recovery can be overwhelming if you don’t know what’s available to help you. A coach can help you find the resources you need and want to enrich your life, such as education or finding a better job.
  • – Communicate with family. Communicating with family can be challenging. There are often hurt feelings, distrust, and resentment in early recovery and having someone to help all parties work through their own feelings is very helpful.

How Do You Know You Need a Coach?

If you feel overwhelmed in sobriety, it’s time to reach out for help. Be honest with yourself and acknowledge that sobriety is difficult, and everyone has challenges. The worst thing to do is use the same thinking that created the problem to try and fix it. Research has shown that multiple streams of support are needed in order to stay sober. A Recovery Coach will keep you from sliding down that slipper slope (again).

Here are some of the signs that you could benefit from the help of a recovery coach:

  • – You just got out of rehab and feel nervous. The relapse rate in the first 12 months of recovery is over 50%.
  • – You have been sober for a while but you feel stuck.
  • – Some major event happened, (for ex: loss of a loved one) and you’re deeply shaken up.
  • – You cling to nostalgia of your using days, places, and friends.
  • – You feel depressed, anxious and stressed out and can’t stop thinking about using.
  • – Going to 12-step meetings doesn’t seem to work for you anymore.

Why work with a Recovery Coach?

Thousands of people go to inpatient treatment centers to recover from addiction every year. The first 90 days of sobriety or after leaving treatment are usually the most difficult. There are so many triggers, reminders, and habits that need to be broken yet the stresses of life, such as work, family, and financial can become even more acute. This is when a Recovery Coach can be most helpful.

Recovery Coaches can help the recovering client navigate the overwhelming path of early sobriety without sabotaging their recovery. Working with them daily helps them establish habits and behaviors that encourage and reinforce a healthy lifestyle.

Why not just get a sponsor in AA for free?

A coach may have many characteristics of a good sponsor, but a Recovery Coach does much more. It’s like having your own personal case manager. They work for you, are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Most coaches only take on one client at a time so that they can focus completely on them and ensure their success.

Recovery Coaches can help create healthy boundaries in all areas of your life. They can teach communication skills to help you relate openly and honestly with family members in the workplace, and just help you learn to live life on life’s terms.

How do I find a Recovery Coach?

Most inpatient treatment centers can recommend a Recovery Coach to their patients. As of now, there is no official federal licensing process for Recovery Coaching but all coaches at Life Coach Library have completed coach training and are certified. Simply register, fill out a questionnaire and we’ll find up to three coaches for you to talk to and choose from. Or you may choose a specific coach from our directory and we’ll connect you to them.

If You Don’t Heal the Pain, You Can Only Medicate It

Relationships

“I enjoyed and benefited greatly from working with a relationship coach! I was in such a dark place, newly single (again), lonely, and depressed. I never felt like my friends really understood and that I was burdening them with my stories. My coach was genuinely interest in me. Some things she said were hard to hear, but she helped me see myself honesty and make positive changes. I now attract healthier people and my life got better in many areas!”

– N.T, Centerville, VA

Business

“I was still amazed at how working with my business coach sparked energy and ideas that I never would have mustered on my own! My business was barely surviving even though I was working day and night. Something needed to change. My coach helped me evaluate and let go of strategies that just weren’t working (even though every article on the internet said to do them) and fine-tune what was. In 6 months, I was able to restructure my business plan and start generating income.”

Alexa C., Providence, RI

Recovery / Personal

“I was sober for years but somehow felt “stuck”. My life was good but something was still missing. On the outside everything seemed great but internally I felt empty. I heard about a coach from a friend, so I reached out. We got to the root of things that I had spent years in therapy trying to figure out. I have a new sense of freedom and peace. Not every day is perfect, but the shift was profound. I wish I had done this year sooner.”

Wanda H. Hagerstown, MD

Health & Wellness

“Reluctant to pay a coach, I believed I should be disciplined enough to diet and exercise on my own. After yet another failure, I decided to stop going it alone. With a coach I discovered my true goals and values which helped me stay motivated. I always tried to please other people but now I just want sanity around food and to be healthy. I finally have that but would never have it without the support of a coach.”

Martha Ramirez, Santa Ana, CA.

All statistics reported from The International Coaching Federation

We are experiencing a total wellness revolution. Our awareness of the effects of stress on our overall health and wellness has increased dramatically, More and more people are taking a total wellness approach to their health which includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth. The practices of most life coaches are aligned with this and they work with you to strategize a proactive, whole-health approach that supports wellbeing.

With the advancement of technology, almost everything you want is just a click away. This convenience frees up time to pursue education and growth from the convenience of home, the car, or even a hotel room while traveling for business. Our coaches understand the importance of being available remotely and have applied these technological advancements to their services.

Coaching and counseling  are similar in that having the right chemistry and rapport with either professional is crucial to successful meeting your goals. Both are trained in getting their clients to look inward and both hold whatever is said in the strictest of confidence.

Counseling tends to be “problem” centered.  We all have times in life when we need to “fix” something that appears broken or we need to HEAL from a painful experience.  Counselors and therapists usually ask “WHY?” (something happened or felt that way).  They are licensed by the state they practice in to investigate and diagnose the underlying causes of mental health problems. They are expected to give advice and often work in tandem with medical professionals who may prescribe medication.  Life coaches are not (unless specified) qualified to diagnose or treat any health-related problems, and there may be situations that they do suggest you see a licensed therapist

Life coaching is very “goal” centered.  It focuses on what’s happening (or not) in the now aims to accomplish future wants and desires.  Coaching clients are looking to improve their life and have a better future; they are whole in the now and are looking to break through limits and succeed like never before. Coaches ask “HOW?” (to get from here to there).  There may  times when things that happened in the past cause limitations to moving forward and a coach can help you move through those limiting thoughts, but their focus is to help you develop tools to keep moving forward.  Coaches may share personal experiences or thoughts, but they do not generally give advice. Instead, they help their clients to uncover their own wisdom and come up with their own best solutions. 

Have you ever noticed that every award winner opens their acceptance speech by thanking others? Sometimes they thank so many people, there’s hardly any time left to talk about what they accomplished. Know why? Greatness never happens alone!! People who have amazing lives are always working to improve their lives and they work with professionals to help them continually reach the next level.

Let’s be clear…. No one NEEDS coaching. Coaching is only for people who WANT it! Those who are success driven, who are constantly trying to improve their life, who strive to create their ideal life, who recognize that it requires perseverance and diligence, who value and appreciate the guidance and support offered by mentors or coaches are they type of people who hire coaches. In short, coaching works best for those who recognize there is a gap between where they are today and where they want to be tomorrow.

You’ve read a ton of self-help books or attended seminars but you still are not able to consistently apply what you learned in your daily life.

You’re struggling to find your passion or life purpose.

You’re overwhelmed with information and ideas of what you want to do but aren’t sure where to begin.

You’ve tried to break bad habits (quit smoking, lose weight) or create good ones (exercise, save money) and you either don’t meet your goals, or meet them only to revert back to old behaviors.

You feel there is some type of block that gets in the way of your total success.

You find yourself getting distracted and wasting lots of time when you know you should be focusing on your main goals and priorities.

You know you’re capable of achieving and doing more, but you either procrastinate or just get stuck.

You simply want MORE

You want to spend great amounts of time discussing the problem and not the solution.

You want someone to just tell you what to do.

You are not willing to do the heavy lifting between sessions. Collaborating with a life coach is only the first step, the results happen when you hang up the phone and get busy.

There are some situations where a counselor really is the better professional to help you. If you are struggling with any type of medical diagnosis or mental illness, you should at least seek professional help in addition to a coach if not before.

Every great coach has a great coach. When do they hire coaches? Here are the times great coaches will work with their coaches and we suggest you do too:

1. You wonder “How do I make this happen?”

You have a goal. You’ve either tried and didn’t get there; started with excitement and enthusiasm, only to peter-out half way through; or you simply do not know where to start. Whether you want to lose a few pounds, find the love of your life, make a total career switch, or build the business of your dreams, a great coach can help you overcome obstacles, strategize next steps, keep you accountable and motivated, and support you while you create your dream.

2. You realize “Nothing is happening”

You’re simply stuck. Nothing is working and you’re just out of ideas. A coach can help you uncover why you’re stuck, form a collaborative think-tank with you, and reenergize your plans to start moving forward Maybe a new perspective will cause a total paradigm shift.

3. You’re thinking “What the heck is happening?”

Sometimes in life things are beyond our control and nothing seems go right or make sense. Sometimes the root is our own belief systems, others it is because we have changed while than others haven’t, or have we just changed differently. Having an objective coach can help to quickly identify any beliefs that are running in the background and raise your conscious awareness and making moving forward virtually effortless.

4. You’re so excited “Something wonderful happened”

You started a new business, got promoted, married or had a baby, suddenly you don’t recognize your life anymore because life as you knew it no longer exists. Change, even when it is fantastic, can throw us off center. So many unexpected things come with change, even good ones. Your coach can help you navigate this new beginning and support you in transition.

5. You’re in a good place but “Now what happens?”

Maybe you’ve just overcome a major obstacle and are out of the weeds so to speak. Now what? Things are GOOD but you want GREAT. You’re closer than you think! A great coach will help you figure out when your next steps can be. They will help you create that amazing life you’ve been dreaming about and support you through exciting elements that may a little scary but in the most wonderful way

6. You’re not feeling up to par “Something Terrible happened”

Life is not always kind. Loved ones pass away, relationships end in heart-break, healthy people succumb to illness, jobs are lost…. It can just really stink sometimes. I am so sorry if this is you. Having a strong support system is so important when life takes a turn. Its not always easy to turn to friends in these situations and having someone who allows it to be “all about you” by offering you their undivided attention and compassion allows you to process in a confidential and safe place. There are no shortcuts through the grieving process, but a good coach can help you find the path back to living happily, and lighten the sadness and despair.

Ultimately, you are embarking on a life-changing experience if you are open-minded and willing to try new things. A coach will improve your self-awareness, help you stay focused, and access your greatest talents while keeping you motivated to go the distance. You might be able to do this on your own if you are super-disciplined and ambitious, but you can do it so much quicker with motivation and accountability behind you.

There are still some people who strongly believe that a face to face presence is necessary for coaching to be effective. However, most are finding that coaching on the telephone or online video is equally as effective but significantly more convenient and cost effective. The most critical element between a coach and a client is the rapport. Believing that your coach truly understands you and feeling confident that they can help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be is what really matters. The best coach may be in a different state and can serve you more powerfully than the one who lives next door!

Finding 3 coaches in your local area, setting up face to face appointments, can be arduous and time consuming. When you fill out our questionnaire, we match you with the best coaches who then contact you. All of our coaches have agreed to have a complimentary consultation with you to answer your questions and mutually agree if the fit is right.

You are matched from a base of 100’s of coaches, bringing you the best fit.

Only coaches who specializes in what you’re looking to achieve contact you.

The convenience of having your coaching sessions anywhere: from home, while traveling, or on your lunch break.

You don’t spend time traveling or hassle with traffic trying to get to your coach.

Many people find it easier to open up over the telephone vs. face to face.

Online coaching limits the overhead costs for coaches, passing the saving on to you as reflected in reasonable coaching fees.
