Why a Coach can help you Define Success for yourself & how you can jump start the process
In the last 10 years the coaching industry has exploded. You may even know someone who has hired a health, life, or business coach. Despite this rise in the industry there are still a lot of questions about coaches actually do. While I can’t speak for the entire industry coaches, I can confidently give you glimpse of what I do.
Success can be defined in a myriad of ways depending on who you ask. The challenge is figuring out whose idea of Success you are pursuing. The answer to this question can be hard to arrive at, and even harder to process.
In our modern age we are constantly bombarded by stimuli that is attempting to influence our thinking about a multitude of things at once. As a result it is easy to lose track of what we want as individuals, and get pulled into what we feel we should do.
It takes a skilled Coach to be able to help a client respectfully and ethically drill down on their own definition of Success. Since we can get caught up in our own narratives its important to have a professional on our side who is focused on helping us sort through the chatter. True success is built on a foundation of self-knowledge that leads to self-actualization. An excellent Coach helps a client identify what they want from a place of understanding their passion and purpose; as well as the client’s individualized “Why”.
A Success Coach can be invaluable in the process of getting real, drilling down and creating an aligned organic action plan. Anyone can unintentionally become oblivious to the personal narratives or behaviors that do not align with what they truly want. Coaches can be powerful mirrors that close feedback loops and begin forward-looking, solution based conversations that help clients get unstuck and move towards the success they truly desire.
Once a person knows what they are passionate about, feels a sense of purpose in their actions moving forward, and knows Why they are taking these actions they become unstoppable.
