Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them. (Tim Gallwey)

Through the facilitation of a life coach you can discover/ rediscover what your dreams are about your future.

Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs. (Farrah Gray)

The process of life coaching can help you to discover your potential and activate your creativity.

Our present internal state of being, rather than our external circumstances, determines how we live our life and where we are. If you do nothing about your inner state of being you will carry on in the same trajectory year after year and just do more of the same, even if your circumstances change. Life coaching can help you to change your state of being and thus also your default future.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. (Mark Twain)

Life coaching can help you to define a clear vision for your future, set goals and follow through on those goals.

Through life coaching you can identify the obstacles that prevent you from reaching your dreams, potential and goals.

Life coaching can help you to tackle the obstacles from a fresh perspective and give structure to overwhelming situations that create the feeling of helplessness.

Life coaching can help you to challenge self-limiting belief systems that hold you back. We often get so ingrained and set in our ways that it becomes hard to see things from a fresh perspective.

In life coaching, anxiety and stress are dealt with, especially when they arise from previous failures. Although we all know that failure is an opportunity for learning, this seldom happens because of the emotional baggage brought about by failure.

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. (Albert Einstein)

The professional nature of the client-coach relationship creates an opportunity for openness, honesty and non-competitiveness, which is different from sharing and discussing your dreams and challenges with a colleague or a friend.

In life coaching you pay a person to be a professional sounding board for your ideas, dreams and fears, so that you do not end up feeling guilty because you have taken up too much time of a friend, colleague or family member by unburdening yourself.

Take the brave step and contact a Life Coach, today!
