What is important for me is to get the message to all the people considering change in their life’s. For those who are sitting on a fence about important life decisions, for those who are stuck with limiting thoughts and or limiting relationships. Also for those who have immense potential but are living lives based on dreams and expectations set, only, by others. For all those who are stressed out and are not finding a way out. For those who want to go from doing good to doing awesome. It is for those who do not fear change but lean into it to make a difference.
It is for you if you for have become comfortable in your zone and are not growing into the true purpose that life has for you. If you are one of the many who have an inner voice urging you to do something big. Consider coaching If you want to go beyond the traditional approach, of setting and achieving big goals, into the realm of deep inner transformation. This is done by uprooting the old belief system and creating a paradigm shift.
Coaching and this post is NOT for those who do not believe in coaching, nor is it for the super champs who have achieved everything there is to achieve and are a lighthouse to the world. It is not for the people who have commitment issues. Coaching also differs from therapy and consulting therefore it does not address people with mental disorders. If you are in this category don’t read this post and waste your precious time.

- Coaching in Sports –
Can you imagine Usain Bolt without his coach? Read more on his coach
For cricket lovers- how about the legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar without his coach?
For the above two examples most of them would intuitively respond- yes, but, this is for the sports world. You are right! What interests me is that coaches help you to go for gold. In life our dreams are the gold we would like to go for- isn’t it?
Are your dreams any less important than sport?
Would you not want to go for gold in all areas of your life ? Or would you settle in for just participation.
The choice is simple. Those who want to go for gold focus on their dreams and this is where coaches come in. A coach supports you to go for gold nothing less.
- Celebrity Coaching –
How about the top celebrities that use coaches. Check out the celebrities who have used life coaching to find balance and joy.
I think each one of us has a celebrity inside of us and it can only be manifested when we put our focus on it. A Coach helps you to get this hidden celebrity known to you first and the world around
- Executive Coaching –
Here is an HBR review on executive coaching. It says coaching is a Billion dollar a year industry. How can it be a billon Dollar industry if there were no takers?
Steve Chandler in his book “prosperous coaching” cites a Manchester Consulting group study of fortune 100 executives which reports an ROI of almost 6 times the program cost. He also points to the survey by the Hay group International that “between 25 and 40 percent of fortune 500 companies use executive coaching”
Personally I have been coached and mentored along my journey so I know the power of coaching
I am hopeful that you have connected the dots and realized that coaching is not a basic need. Even without coaching life goes on as it has been for so long. It is a choice one has to make depending on the answer to the questions –
Have you given your best that you have to live the purpose that life has for you?
Are you Living up to the potential that you know you have?
Are you having fun and enjoying the journey to your goals?
Do you want to go for Gold?
Traditional coaching comes in to play when you want to go for Gold. If you want to manifest, the small inner and subtle thoughts which really make you come alive, into a reality. You will want to go for coaching if you have got big dreams. if you want a reference point to navigate through the vast sea of overwhelming information. It is for all those who want to use an ally, a sounding board.
For deeper shifts- It comes into play when you want to live deeply, fully from the source within. It is for those who are not afraid of change.
In the coming days, maybe, coaching is going to be part of the student curriculum. It might become a pre-requisite for getting and playing in the big leagues. All along we have been investing, time, energy and money in getting educational degrees and certificates which at times play down and suppress our passions rather than to empower them.
You would want a coach for one or many of the reasons. Say you If you are having a little difficulty at work with your sales figures tanking, or you may want to move up the ladder and seem to be stuck. It could be that you are having a relationship issue. Or If you are contemplating a change in career, in a relationship or you are on the edge of transition to create a massive shift in life.
I say go and get a coach.. Most brilliant coaches offer breakthrough experiences in the first two hours and this session is usually free.
The coach helps you create a space , through his presence, to get connected to your powerful inner self which is full of wisdom and insights. The coach equips you with tools, techniques, strategies to go after your goals. He also works on a deeper level, depending on the client of-course, to establish a change in perception of how you view the world.
To quote an example of this change in perception I useSuperCoach Michael Neills words “Happiness leads to success, well being leads to inspiration, and that success and inspiration become the basis for creating an even more wonderful life” As you too must have noticed- the old paradigm that success leads to happiness just falls away and you automatically realize that being happy is the path to success.
Therefore don’t get limited by beliefs of why you cannot or should not make use of the power of a coach. Use the awesome energy and power of the coaches out there. Most coaches have one important motto “to serve” so use the service. They are like Pam Grout’s mentor Rob Brezsny, mentioned in her book E cubed- Who once a year stands with a Billboard that reads “I NEED TO GIVE. PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY”
Only one person can stop you from having a life that you really want and that is none other than……………
