Life Coaching Yourself To Better
Self improvement is never far from many women's minds. Yet this
is something we often tell ourselves we will take care of 'later'.
As we know too well, 'later' seldom becomes the reality. At least,
not until we experience personal crisis and our hands are forced to
make much needed change to the way we live our lives.
In addition, 'change' rarely start when we merely promise
ourselves 'we will do this, or that'. It only starts when we make
a commitment to understanding:
Why we're doing what we're doing
How what we're doing is affecting us
What we want to change for the better
What we can now do to make things happen
The need to make a firm commitment to change
The importance of setting a timescale for achieving it
with this level of awareness and motivation can you then plan your
course of action to bring about change to your health and to your
life. This is the
starting point for becoming your own life coach.
Becoming your own personal life coach
Before you can begin your personal life coaching quest, you must simply stop making promises
to yourself - (talking) and start the process of really
getting to know you - what makes you unhappy, what will make
you happy, what stands in the way of your happiness, what would it
take to remove that barrier.
This is the art of becoming your own coach, since no one will
ever know you better. You are the best person who can say how life
events are contributing to your reality and ultimately to your health.
Making the necessary
change to - 'how you think' and 'what you think about' isn't
as difficult as you might perceive.
Just think about what you are actually doing when you guide your
children or your 'nearest and dearest' in ways that will help them
maximise their potential.
You are demonstrating life coaching qualities when you
reassure and praise them for making a huge effort with
their school work etc.,
You are being a life coach when you refuse to interfere or to
tell them what to do - but instead ask them what they want to do when-
ever they appear to be in crisis or conflict with their
You are using coaching skills when you make
enquiries of them about how they are feeling and what they want
to see happen to make things better
You are on your way to becoming a life coach when you help your
children explore all the possible options that are available to
them, enabling them to make their own decisions as young adults
The same can be said when you support them and help them to
draw on the qualities and skills you know will motivate them
The chances are that you are already demonstrating all, if not most
of these skills and qualities that are pre-requisite to coaching without even being fully aware.
Self-coaching isn't rocket science. As you've already gathered,
becoming your own life coach is about supporting yourself
through a process of discovering and creating ways to achieve what
you really want in your health life.
