I have now been coaching for 16 years, and I have had a coach for myself for the past 16 years.
In all of these years of being a coach, and receiving coaching, I have never actually written anything in my blog about WHY coaching? With the new year approaching, this seems like a good time to explore this topic.
First and foremost coaches help you get what you want.
Perhaps you want to feel better, change careers, get a promotion, improve a relationship, start your own company, grow your business, get a relationship, get clear. Or even go after your dream, make more money or improve your leadership skills.
All of these are reasons to hire a coach. A coach will sit down with you and get really clear about what it is you want. Until you are clear on what you really want, you won't move.
A coach will not only help you get what you want, they will stretch your universe.
To get something new in your life, you have to see new and be able to take new action. It is as simple as that. The great news is once you start seeing new in one area of your life, all areas of your life will be impacted, thus your universe gets stretched.
There is a book called The Genius of Flexibility, the author speaks about the power of stretching. He found that when you stretch yourself you become less resistant to positive life changes - you learn to embrace the good and are more resistant to negative influences and desires.
If you would like to be “stretched” so you can have the life you want in 2021, please reach out. I would love to have a conversation.
