Don’t Be a By-Stander in Your Own Life
Although none of us like to think of ourselves as by-standers in our own lives, there are few if any of us who can claim not to have spent at least part of our existence drifting from one day and one experience to the next without feeling in full control of where we are going. What sets the truly successful people apart from the rest, however, are having definitive objectives to aim for, step-by-step plans to get them from where they are now to where they want to be and the ability to maintain their focus along the way rather than accepting passively whatever life chooses to throw at them.
Passivity is something which affects people at different levels in life. In some cases it manifests itself on a day-to-day basis in the inability of individuals to say “No” to others or to stand up for their own beliefs, attitudes and opinions. In others, meanwhile, it reflects in longer-term drifting and a lack of planning. Whichever is the case, however, it always leads to feelings of discontent and often to feelings of low self-esteem. Leading a passive existence is also often responsible for two of the saddest words to be uttered when people reach the end of their mortal lives… “I wish…”
However much we might sometimes feel that our destinies lie in the hands of fate, the fact is that relatively little is outside of our own control. Every minute of every day sees us faced with choices which could ultimately change the course of our lives, but all too often we stick with what feels safest and what is known to us rather than take “the road less traveled.” It doesn’t have to be that way though, and huge numbers of people have literally been able to take control of their own lives and turn them around with the help of different types of online coaching.
Online coaches work in a variety of different fields, from personal coaching which can help individuals to identify and deal with the areas of their lives where they would like to achieve greater fulfillment and success, to business coaching, executive coaching and leadership coaching which are aimed specifically at addressing and meeting professional goals. Health coaching is another extremely important area where many people choose to seek help, whether their aims are related to increasing overall fitness or addressing particular physical weaknesses, eating more healthily, losing weight or even learning how to incorporate healthier patterns into their busy lifestyles.
While on the surface of things, all of these different types of online coaching address entirely different needs and objectives, what they all have in common is that they each give those who take part a greater sense of control over their own lives so that they are no longer by-standers in their own lives, but pilots of their own destinies.
If you have had enough of drifting aimlessly through life and not doing or achieving the things that you want to do or achieve, why not consider life coaching, business coaching or health coaching.
