Ultimately, what can I expect over all from personal life coaching?

Expectations vary by individual, however there is a very common pattern for people that commit to life coaching.

Life coaching enables people to create a process of personal evolution. Learning, growing, transforming, breaking through blocks, using change to your advantage, identifying goals and "making it all happen" are the outcomes. "Out with the old, in with the new" You emerge from life coaching armed with plans, motivation, personal awareness, self-confidence, and an openness to change.

Life coaches support, challenge, and motivate you. They help to remove energy blocks, set goals, make action plans, raise your awareness, and assist your authentic self in emerging. All of these things lead to success, contentment, and overall happiness. All of this is dependent on an agenda that the partnership of coach and client develop.

Why is life coaching so popular?

People are tired of doing what they "should" do and are ready to do something special and meaningful that impacts the rest of their lives. People are realizing how simple it can be to accomplish something that several years ago might have felt out of reach or like a pipedream. A life coach is not a miracle worker (well, they are, sometimes) but a life coach does have a large tool kit and a variety of strategies to help you reach your goals. Fortunately, people now have time and resources to invest in themselves in this kind of personal growth.

Why does life coaching produce such rapid change?

Life coaching works for several reasons:

A connection or chemistry between the life coach and client creates momentum and enthusiasm.

Exciting goals are set -- ones that naturally motivate the client. The client has an action plan, which leads to greater success. Coaching provides a structure of support. Left to our own devices, most people start out with the best intentions and then lose momentum and either get derailed completely or delayed for a long time. A certified life coach can help you quickly break through blocks and resistance so that more is accomplished with less struggle and less effort in a remarkable short period of time.

Your coach is an objective, positive supporter. Not everyone is lucky enough to have such a person in their lives to play this role. If you’ve been doing it solo, try seeing how much more you can accomplish with your own personal life coach!
