What can a Motivational Life Coach do for me?

Updated on October 28, 2012

What is a Motivational Life Coach Anyway?

A motivational life coach helps keep you motivated and headed in the right direction. If you've ever been confused about which direction to take or what decision is best for you; a life coach helps you work through these matters to find a solution that is right for you.

A Motivational life coach helps you understand yourself better; what drives you, what really sparks your interests, and what the best course of action and planning is to get you to where you want to be.

Coaches don't just give you the answers. They aren't psychics, therapists, or doctors. They are great listeners! They help you work through the issues you are having. By asking key questions a coach can help you figure out the heart of the matter which may have escaped you until that point.

Because Motivational Life Coaches don't just tell you what to do, rather help you find the solutions that are right for you; you are far more likely to stick to them and succeed.

What Motivational Coaches Don't Do:

A motivational coach will not tell you that you are wrong. They will not put you down, shame you, blame you, or insult you.

A motivational coach will not make public anything that is shared during a session. They will not air your "dirty laundry" to friends, co-workers, or strangers. Everything is kept confidential.

A motivational coach will not judge you. If they have a conflict of interest where they cannot look past a particular believe structure which differs from yours, that coach will let you know that they are not the right coach for you.

A motivational coach will not just hand over answers like they are reading some secret handbook of things to say. There is no cookie cutter script reading. It is all individualized to meet your personal needs.

So Would I Benefit From a Motivational Life Coach?

The answer to that is completely up to you! Do you think you would? If so, then you probably would.

Life Coaches come in almost any category you can think of, from financial to self-esteem.

Is your support system weak?

Do you find yourself second guessing your choices often?

Would you like the feeling of having more support and understanding?

Are there times when you just want someone to listen?

Do you wish you had someone to run an idea, plan, thought, or decision past sometimes other than the "usual" sources?

Have you had difficulty making and keeping goals or ambitions?

If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then a motivational coach might be just the thing for you!
