1) I want to achieve more in my life
Do you have something in mind that you would have liked to have achieved already? Sometimes we have a goal or target that has been written down, that we’ve thought about or had on our mind for some time.
A few examples that I have come across include:
2) I want more money
I wish I had less money, said no one, ever! Money doesn’t have to be the most important thing in your life, but for most of us, it is quite important. Have you ever got to the end of the month where you just had a little bit more spare cash? Maybe a little bit extra to cover the rent and bills? Or perhaps you would just like to treat yourself to go for a fancy dinner, a new outfit, or even a nice holiday. Coaching can help you by looking at both the spending and the earning side of things, leading you to live a happier, successful and fulfilling life.
3) I would like to improve my health
According to GAIAM https://www.gaiam.com/blogs/discover/15-easy-ways-to-be-healthier. Research shows a healthy positive attitude helps build a healthier immune system and boosts overall health. Your body believes what you think, so we need to focus on the positive. There are many different things we can do to improve our health but working on our mindset should be the first step. A coach will help put you in the right frame of mind and you will find it easier to make small improvements in your life, even if it is just taking that apple instead of the cookie, or the juice instead of a glass of wine.
4) I don’t have time to fit everything in
There is a lot going on in your life right now and it seems impossible to do everything that you want to do. Whether you want to spend more time with your family, learn something new or even get an extra hour in bed, the day never seems long enough. A Life Coach can help you devise strategies and structure your schedule to ensure that you focus on the things that are most important in your life, create more consistency and allow you to achieve the things that you want.
5) Something in my life is annoying me
We can’t always control the things that happen around us or to us. It could be an event, an action or another person that is out of our control and we don’t know how to deal with it. This can be especially hard when we are caught in the middle of a situation because we can’t think or see clearly. If you find yourself in this position then it can be useful to withdraw yourself from the situation and a coach can help you do this. By questioning what is going on, what is specifically annoying or frustrating you and help you deal with things effectively so that you can move yourself into a position where you feel positive, confident and happy.
6) I feel overwhelmed, stressed or anxious
When there is a lot going on in our lives, the last thing we need is to become stressed or anxious about it. It is easy to overthink things and to worry. More often than not, there are ways of dealing with these situations better. Whether its learning how to control our thoughts, focusing on one thing at a time, or organising ourselves by creating a strategy that helps us deal with it all. This article from Lifehack gives eight important things to remember when you are feeling overwhelmed, https://www.lifehack.org/articles/productivity/8-things-remember-when-you-are-overwhelmed.html. A coach can help you implement different strategies into your life which are more specific to you and your circumstances.
7) Things are great but I'd like to be happier and not sure how to do it.
Speaking to Family and friends who have great intentions is a good way to get advice, but they are not always impartial. They can often be too close to your situation which will limit their vision. They also may not be the right person to identify the areas that you want to change, ask the right questions to enable the change and ultimately push you in the right direction.
8) I feel stuck
You may see yourself as blocked, at a crossroads or out of options. Maybe you feel deflated, resigned or confused and your point of view is often the main contributing factor to the way you are feeling. Learning how to identify and dissolve these thoughts that are running in the background can move you out of helplessness and clear up a lot of confusion. A coach will work with you to get clear about what this means for you. Looking at the big picture, the most important thing is about living a life that is purposeful and is in line with your values and beliefs.
9) I need some direction in my life
Sometimes we don’t know what we want or which direction we want to go in, whether its in relation to a relationship, our career or another aspect of our life. Fast company posted this great article about helping you figure out the next steps in your career, https://www.fastcompany.com/3061785/a-6-step-plan-to-figure-out-your-next-career-move. By asking the right questions, a coach can help you get inside of your own head to figure out what you really want in your life and where you want to end up.
10) I would like to be more confident
Having a low self-esteem or a lack of confidence is not something we will always admit to ourselves, but sometimes if you had a little more confidence, you might find that you push yourself to achieve or do more. Whether it be day to day, in your work or personal life, as you gather the experience you need to believe in yourself and become more self-confident, a life coach can support and show you that you are worthy of success.
If any of the above relates to you, it may be time to look into hiring a coach. Some of the most successful people on the planet have had a life coach or an executive coach and continue to receive support from professional consultants. No matter what stage of your life you are at, you can only benefit from the services that Executive Mind Coaching has to offer. It’s never too late to get to where you want to be, and you can do it quicker when you have someone to challenge you, and lean on for accountability.
