Working with a life coach

Being stuck is not the only time to seek help from a professional facilitator.

by Craig Dunkelberger — 

The main reason to work with a life coach is not because you think you need one. The fact is you have all of the answers you seek within yourself. But, speaking with a professional is a way to uncover those answers and to have someone available to teach you different techniques about how to navigate through the ups and downs of your life.

People can become stuck in their lives for various reasons, and sometimes those reasons are outside of their own conscious awareness. If it becomes difficult to see beyond your own situation, it might be time to enlist a life coach to help you facilitate achieving your dreams.

Being stuck is not the only time to seek help from a professional facilitator. For example, you may be a person who has achieved great success in certain areas of your life, but now you feel it is time to address the other areas that might not be as successful. By asking effective and powerful questions, a life coach can help you find the answers that will lead you toward your dreams and purpose.

The Latin root word for education is “educo,” meaning, “to draw out.” Life coaches ask questions of their clients to help them draw out their own answers and use their own innate self-tools. Eventually, their clients learn how to ask questions of themselves without assistance, which is the goal.

People seek help from life coaches for various reasons, including finding answers within themselves about career, relationships, spirituality, quality of life, physical health/fitness, balance, setting and achieving goals, as well as for clarity of purpose. Do not be afraid to seek them out — they will help get you on track to realizing your dreams.
