Many people enter the life coaching profession usually because people always come to them for advice. Once they recognize the gift they have in listening and helping people come to their own conclusions, they feel inspired to become certified coaches and start their own coaching practices.
Life coaching offers a potentially rewarding additional or alternative career to people especially for those who want to add a new service to their business brand. Whatever the reasons for people deciding to become coaches; the #1 goal for them is discovering new things about themselves as they embrace a new journey. Becoming a coach means a lifelong quest for personal excellence. For many this quest is the motivation to become a coach in the first place.
Helping clients discover where they want to go and helping them to get there is now a proven methodology, which is fueling the increasing popularity of professional life coaching.
Significantly, good life coaches are never motivated entirely by money. The very nature of coaching means that it’s a profession that is centered around ‘making a difference’ and helping people achieve the life they desire. Who wouldn’t want to help people reach their full potential in life? I believe that’s the quest that everyone desires, but often they don’t have the tools or the know how to get there. That’s why life coaches are critical to an individual’s life curve. Common factors and reasons for coaches entering the profession are:
• they like people and want to bring out the best in them;
• they want to do something more fulfilling in their lives and coaching meets that need;
• they want personal and financial freedom;
• their family, friends and colleagues previously turned to them for advice and help – they have natural ‘people’ skills;
Life coaching entails helping yourself grow through self-awareness and at the same time, helping others to overcome problems in their lives.
