Life coaching has enabled a lot of people to achieve higher levels of life satisfaction and authentic happiness. It has helped a lot of people make their goals a reality. Coaches have a beautiful partnership with their clients.
Tommy Baker in his book The 1% rule says that…
“…when I discovered there were people using personal development and seminars as an escape, not as a tool to execute and create progression their life…” it dawn on me how bad this is, for most of us“.
We could start by agreeing on how the current system fails the masses.
It is just not working. The goal settings and the on and off motivation is just not working.
I have been on a self-development quest for years almost a decade now but what changed my life was bumping into coaching.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is that which elevates you from being average, catapults you to reach where you want to be. It is the significant difference between where you are now and where you need to be. It sets out to maximise your full potential.
This is a profession that does not dwell or focus on your doubts, your ‘ifs’, your negative self-talks but it is that which enables you to see your true self, your potential, it sees the best in you, without judgement, it does this by continually guiding and accepting your personal life journey.
Coaching will encourage you beyond all that holds you back, you become more aware of the negativity, the energy drains, the self imposed limitation (sometimes by society) to ensure you attain your authentic full potential, this is only personal to you.
Think of any sport. It is almost impossible to think of any sport, today, right now without a Coach. It also goes much further than that.Most of the team members will still have their own Personal Coaches.
The Coach will make sure they play as a team, enhance their individual strengths but yet comes together beautifully as a complete puzzle. He will see their blindspots and he will help the players redefine themselves, as a team. By the team he gets done, they become almost unstoppable.
Can we do that with our lives? Of course, we can.
Life coaching has drastically elevated to become the most effective form of self-development, which has significantly contributed in turning around people’s lives.
Life coaching refers to the process of assisting individuals to identify and attain their personal aims through skills development and behaviors that enhance self-empowerment.
Life coaching basically entails dealing with issues like balancing life and work and changes in career.
Firstly, life coaching is very significant as it helps an individual to clarify their wants, the reason why they want it, and how they plan to attain the wants.
Secondly, it provides one with the appropriate strategies, resources and methods of how they can easily achieve their desired goals.
Lastly, it aids in exploring and assessing all the viable options to fulfil an objective.
A Life Coach illuminates your anomalies, points them out and magnifies your ideas, your dreams and ensures you never run out of steam as you will be utilising your natural energy.
A Coach will challenge you to dream big.
All your left to do is to imagine how productive you would be with such a resource? Sounds magical right?
How much could you get done?
Where would you go?
Future of Life Coaching in Developing countries.
Life coaching in the developing countries is practiced less often since it is previously been expensive to hire a coach and also the people who engage in coaching are few which makes it difficult to access the coaching services.
The future of life coaching in developing countries is a bright courtesy of modern technology in the global arena.
With the new wave of modern technology such as Skype, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Linked In, life coaching will experience significant growth. Individuals and firms will be able to get coaching services from all over the world online, and similarly, the number of people who will engage with life coaching will increase.
Life coaching will be intertwined with the education system in developing countries which will benefit students by helping them to design their career path, which is key for them to achieve their goals.
Similarly, the economies of the developing nations will rise as companies will be provided with online platforms to access coaching services which are necessary for their growth. Life coaching has become very crucial in shaping the lifestyle and economies of various countries even in developing countries.
