There comes a time in most of our lives when things aren't going as well we would like. During those times, we can either succumb to the status quo because we feel too dejected to entertain the possibility that life can offer more, or we can decide that ENOUGH is ENOUGH! Life has to be better than it's been.
LifeSmarts Coaching is for those individuals who have finally decided that they are tired of repeating the same rationalizations. They can't stand listening to their own incessant whining and lame excuses and are ready to make positive changes.
Coaching is targeted for motivated individuals. To be blunt, coaching is not for those who have given up on themselves or are unwilling to strive for excellence. Other venues would serve them better.
LifeSmarts Coaching will be right for you, if you are pleased to recognize that there are many aspects of your life that you wouldn't trade at all. In fact, it is quite likely that in many areas, you have demonstrated a high level of sophistication and competence. But at the end of the day, you are not feeling the degree of satisfaction and well-being you would like. Too much of the time, you feel like you are giving far more than you are getting back. You may keep repeating the same old patterns that get you nowhere, but just can't figure out how to change this on your own.
If you can declare that you are committed to dramatic, long-lasting changes in your life, coaching just might be for you! Do not underestimate the power of a strong desire to turn your life around, and the unwavering support of a coach, as a committed ally, to keep you motivated and on track... sign up today!
You are most likely to succeed with coaching if:
You are open to the possibility of exciting new changes and are willing to take a totally different approach. Expect to be challenged in a way that you have not been challenged before. You will be encouraged to try out new behaviors that might initially cause some discomfort. However, you can take these steps at your own pace, and only when you are ready. You will never be asked to do anything that doesn't seem right. More likely, you'll be annoyed at yourself that you didn't think of these things before, and quite frankly, amazed at the results.
You are willing to look "outside the box" for solutions to your disappointments. A critical factor to your success is being open to feedback, with the mutual understanding that you make the final decision about the steps that you take. As you know, friends and family often tell us what we want to hear and don't want to hurt our feelings. Although it can sometimes be upsetting to hear things that are difficult, your coach is dedicated 100% to your successes. Coaching requests can always be negotiated so that you feel comfortable with your progress.
You are willing to speak directly about concerns that you have. The most successful coaching relationship is one where both parties are able to speak candidly. You will be encouraged to be brutally honest, both with yourself and your coach. The more willing that you are to put the tough issues on the table, the more quickly you will see results.
You are eager to work hard in between coaching appointments because you know that progress requires hard work. Coaching promises to be an enthusiastic, creative opportunity for you to map out a specific, targeted life plan. A willingness to keep plugging away, even if there are some setbacks, or if progress doesn't go at your ideal pace, is key to achieving satisfying results.
