Life coach. Can’t we all use one? The internet says that life coach is supposed to help you reach your full potential. Sweet! A life coach can look at a broad picture objectively. They can work with you to help you figure out what you want and how to get there. Nice!
And then there is accountability. A life coach won’t let you off the hook. You can’t nod and say, “yes, that’s what I want,” and then not follow through. You can’t continue to say you’ll do something and never get around to it because of this, that, or the other thing that’s holding you back. Fear is a powerful brick wall. But knowing that life coach is there and is going to show up and look at progress with you should be motivating.
Do we need a life coach because we’ve lost touch with our own wisdom? Because too many things stop us in our tracks? Are we so afraid of making the wrong decision, choice, or move that we don’t do anything? Because we have no friends close enough to confide our deepest selves too? Have we forgotten how to listen, relate, have communion and walk side-by-side to reach our next milestone?
I don’t know the answers, but I’m all for pairing up as life coaches.
