I have said it before, and I will say it again, adulting ain’t easy. Often the response to that statement is, “life, in general, isn’t easy but hey, that’s life.” But, what if I told you there were professionals out there who teach you how to an adult like a boss? (I know because I’m one of those professionals) Life Coaches are absolutely fabulous in showing you how to be fabulous too. Here’s how they do it:
They Hold You Accountable
Too often we make excuses as towards why we couldn’t or haven’t completed a task yet. Well, your life coach will hold you accountable for the things you say and do and teach you how to hold yourself accountable too. It’s not easy taking responsibility for our actions and consequences but, it’s an important part of adulthood. A life coach holds that mirror up and forces you to look right into it.
Help You Build Self-Esteem
There is no doubt that the real world can be a real butt kicker at times. As a result, our self-confidence and self-esteem can become severely damaged. Some people start with poor self-esteem to begin with and need assistance building it. Either way, a life coach is a great booster for this. They use awesome resources and validate your dreams. They can really help you to feel like a million bucks.
Help You Clarify Your Goals
Every great helping professional will always ask you about what your goals are in life. Life coaches take it a step further and help you to create actions steps to reach those goals. Imagine being able to figure exactly what you want, and then having the map that leads you right to it. Life coaches help you write out a plan and goals to help achieve what you want in life.
They are Always Listening
Good coaches are trained to listen. Many people like to throw around the term “active listeners,” but great coaches do more than active listening. Not only do they hear you, they also validate your feelings. They remind you that it’s okay to feel how you feel and teach you the best ways to respond to those emotions. This is a great reminder that you matter, your emotions matter, and your thoughts matter to someone.
They Are a personal GPS System
Coaches recognize the stage you are in life and help you navigate the through waters. There are many different kinds of life coaches, and they all have different expertise. Some focus on the quarter-life crisis, while others focus on business management. Either way, they can help you figure things out. They can be your personal GPS to life and a great asset to have.
Hiring a life coach can be a great way to start mastering adulthood. Unfortunately not every coach is created equal so be sure to do your research. Don’t forget to ask questions to choose a good coach for yourself. Remember coaches are different from counselors and you may need to determine which one you would most benefit from.
