Why is Life Coaching so effective?

I am being asked all the time what makes Life Coaching so successful. My answer is: It’s efficiency.

But why is it so efficient? Because it is action based and forward oriented while most other self development tools look at the past and try to find out why we are who we are today.

Obviously past behavior may be a good predictor of future behavior, but it’s never more than a tendency because we can change that. The past is over and the future is unknown. But our past does not equal our future. It will only affect it to the degree WE ALLOW it. This is what makes us humans so unique.

Evidently the past DOES matter, but only to the extent we let it. It matters because we can (and we should) reflect on it and learn from it. But it does not have to rule the rest of our lives.

You can change tomorrow by what you do today. What you think, what you believe and the actions you take or don’t take will affect your future. But change is not so easy and this is where coaching can help significantly.

A coach sees the coachee from a different, an outside perspective. Because of this detachment s/he can ask the right questions so the coachees are able to find new and better answers for themselves. Coaching is not so much about giving advice. It is more about helping the client find their own solutions before building an action plan together. Coachees are then supported while executing this plan.

You may not be able to control ALL the events in your life, but you can drastically increase your odds of success by using a coach whenever you are on a crossroad of your life.

“We cannot cross the sea merely by staring at the water.”

Rabindranath Tagore, Indian Nobel Prize Winner for Literature

No, we have to move, we have to take action and implement what we have learned from the past. Do not let yourself be stopped by your nagging self doubts or your relatives and friends. Each have their reason BUT you have your own reason for doing things your way. Do not let people drown your dreams. They are yours and you have the resources to make them come true even if the others could not!

You are able to do anything you want to do. You just have to trust yourself and sometimes take a leap of faith = believe that all will come to pass. Once you make a firm decision that you will really go for it, the right action plan will follow so don’t focus on the how, focus much more and the what and the why.
