Do you have some GOALS you want to achieve in your life? Do you find it difficult to keep yourself committed and do the work that you need to do to achieve those GOALS?
Working on your GOALS alone can be very difficult at times. Here are 4 Ways a Professional Coach can help you achieve your GOALS and IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE.
1. Responsibility & Accountability – Taking consistent action, taking responsibility and keeping yourself accountable is the single most important thing you must do in order to achieve your GOALS. Have you ever started out working on your GOALS feeling highly motivated then a few days later found it difficult to keep yourself committed and take consistent action? A great Coach will ensure you keep your commitments, complete your daily & weekly actions, and keep you disciplined towards achieving your outcome.
2. Enhance Perception– If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got. What you do is a reflection of what you think and believe. The more enhanced your perception is, the better your ability to look at a situation / problem and the more choices you have to take action on achieving your GOALS. A Coach will help you think & perceive in different ways. You see, the problem is never really the problem. It’s our thinking about the problem that’s the problem. Through powerful questions & active listening, the Coach invites you to look at things differently.
3. Powerful Tools & Techniques – As you are working on your GOALS, you will have to communicate effectively to the people around you, face & overcome unexpected challenges and also manage your emotions. A great Coach empowers you with the tools & techniques for thinking, decision making, emotional control & communication. While traditional Coaching aims to ‘only ask questions’, more modern Coaching practices encourage the Coach to share their resources (with Client permission), to help the client achieve greater results more quickly.
4. Break Your Comfort Zone – Your Coach will challenge you to think, behave and act in ways you have never done before and you might feel uncomfortable in the beginning. This is good because breaking and getting outside your comfort zone means you are making progress and your Coach will encourage & support you to push yourself outside your comfort zone…that is where the true growth happens. Having a Coach beside you during these ‘growth spurts’ is a great way to stay focused & prevent overwhelm.
