What Is Life Coaching and What Are Some of Its Benefits?

A Brief Introduction to Life Coaching

Before life coaching, there was the word “coach.” A few years ago, I heard the term coach, but this term for me only referred to the sport.

I thought about the coach of my country’s national soccer team and that the verb “to coach” in English means to train.

I looked for the etymological meaning of the word Coach, and I found that it has Hungarian origin of the city of Kocs, where the word Knosi was formed.

This term has other translations: German as Kutsche, Italian as cocchio, and Spanish as coche.

Thus, the word derives from “car,” which had the function of transporting people from one place to another. That is where they are and where they want to get to.

Given this, life coaching is a personal transformation process that helps you discover the observer that you are and your actions in the world.

It helps you become a new observer and generate new actions. These will push you to activate your potential, set goals, renew dreams, and put them into fruition by putting aside the obstacles that arise.

As Marcel Proust said: “The true voyage of discovery is not about looking for new territories, but about having new perspectives.”

Reasons Why You Should Have a Life Coach

When we face situations and problems that don’t allow us to see things from a new perspective and realize what we can do.

That’s the beauty of having a Life Coach. All we need to do is have the help of a life coach who can guide us through the challenges life presents us with.

If you really want to maximize your productivity, it’s advisable to have someone with suitable expertise to guide you along the way. You’re all set to be successful in whatever you set out to do.

Here are 6 reasons why you should have a Life Coach.

1. Meet your goals with life coaching

For some people completing their goals is difficult. It is not just setting goals that are difficult but achieving what they set out to achieve. 

However, a Life Coach can help you define your goals and find inspiration and motivations powerful enough to know why you want to achieve them.

2. Challenge limited beliefs that have been holding you back

Most of the time, we feel stuck because even though we don’t know or don’t want to see it, we have limited beliefs and ideas that are holding us back.

A Life Coach is essential to serve you in identifying those limiting beliefs and challenging those judgments, and transforming them into new habits and beliefs that support your goals so that you can follow and advance faster.

3. Don’t know where to start with your projects

Sometimes we don’t know where to start. We are enthusiastic about the notion of success and know that we want to achieve something, but as soon as we think about doing so, we are filled with a sense of insecurity, and finally, we cannot start. 

Setting great goals can often overwhelm us. It’s difficult to clarify things when you can’t even overcome that anxiety that appears when you don’t know where to start. Or if there are judgments that something isn’t happening or isn’t going to happen. 

A Life Coach accompanies you to challenge those beliefs you have, which does not allow you to advance.

4. Anxiety and stress are recurring topics

Life can get stressful. We all go through moments of anxiety and stress when we need to manage failure. Although it is possible to learn through failure, having those constant emotions as a recurring issue in your life is not healthy or productive.

Getting the perspective and outside help that a Life Coach provides is critical to helping you regain the energy that escapes in those discouraging emotions.

5. Reinvent yourself through life coaching

Reconnecting with your essence, with your true self, is the key to the manifestation of your desires.

6. You don’t have a clear vision of where to go

Sometimes we feel that we live the life we want but a life to satisfy another person’s wishes and rules. We have goals, but they are not what we really want in our hearts.
