Have you heard the term Life Coach before? Apparently Life Coaching is a rapidly growing industry that brings an annual revenue of over $ 1 billion in the US only. People today want a Life Coach to help them do better and achieve more.
What does a Life Coach do?
Today people want to reach their biggest goals and dreams. They want to do something special and meaningful for the rest of their lives. Life Coaching is about helping people take their life, career or business to the next level.
People today want to:
- Set clear goals and find a way to achieve them
- Manage their time more effectively
- Create momentum and see results
- Become better versions of themselves
What is Life Coaching then?
Life coaching is very different to psychological therapy, as it focuses on moving the individual forward and it has nothing to do with looking back at past issues and trying to resolve traumas. A Life Coach is a consultant, a friend, a motivator, a person that holds you accountable to your own decisions.
This doesn’t mean however, that anyone can do it. The successful Life Coach, needs to have both:
- the knowledge to identify the core issues
- the talent to energise and motivate the client to act
What do you think about Life Coaching?
Would you be interested? Would you try it? Personally, I would hesitate to allow someone so much into my life and into my thoughts and my dreams. This sort of thing seems far too personal to me to be hiring someone to help; no matter how skilled or talented they might be.

Getting some help from professional is not a bad idea and can help someone open up and face reality 🙂
Face reality!! OK. Interesting thought. Although I’d rather just get inspired and motivated. Reality might not look good!
Even in my “darkest ” moments, I always hesitated to turn to professional help. My main argument is that the most comforting help comes from friends and family. And although I am aware of the flaws of my thinking, I’m being reluctant to allow someone I barely know into my personal life.
On the other hand, isn’t it tempting to put yourself into the experienced hands of a trained individual, who might show you the way to personal success?
I guess it might depend on how desperate one is. Or on how many friends they have. And how good and true those friends are. And their family.
Thank you for your message!
