So you need to talk about what to do with your life, or to deal with problems. You may think that talking to your friend or family is sufficient. However, perhaps a life coach may help you come up with better answers. Here are some of the reasons you should think about getting a life coach:
Your loved ones are biased: Your friends and family will have their own opinions and interests, and may not be able to give you the advice a life coach can. For example, if you want to lose weight, your mother may insist that you are fine the way you are, even if you are 50 pounds overweight and are experiencing health issues due to your weight. A life coach in Chicago, New York, or elsewhere will tell you what you need to hear; not just what you want to hear.
Those around you are sick of hearing your complaints: So you are unhappy with aspects of your life, and you want to make changes. Maybe you’re tired of being single, or you want to get on a new career track. So you ask those around you for advice, you don’t listen, and then you talk to them again and again and again to vent. You don’t want to be the person that your co-workers or friends avoid when they see you approach them. A life coach can give you more of a fulfilling place to do constructive things with your life.
Your friends and family are ignorant: And by this, we don’t mean ignorant as in dumb. We mean that they may not know how to help whatever it is you want to do. For example, if you have a goal of getting in shape and running a marathon, and the only time your best friend gets off the couch is to raid the refrigerator, it is unlikely your friend can help you figure out a plan for you. But a life coach can.
You want to see new possibilities: A life coach can draw you out with questions and help you gain clarity. You can also see a whole new world of possibilities you never even considered. This can help you more easily gain happiness in your life.
You need better coping skills: When you talk to a life coach in Chicago or elsewhere, you can have a partner in crime who can help you develop better coping mechanisms to deal with life’s challenges. Those skills can help you grow and improve your life.
You want to be the best you can be: Whether you want to be a rock star in your business life, or a great spouse, parent and friend in your personal life, a life coach can help you get there. The coach can help you with things like money issues, communication, health, relationships, and work-life balance. So why not talk to a life coach? Click here to learn more.
