Why a Life Coach?

photo-1428604467652-115d9d71a7f1Why would someone need a Life Coach?  After all most people have drive, skills and ambitions. They know that they want good things out of this, the one and only life they get.  And they can do it. Right?

All by themselves.

Maybe, but all the big leaguers, they have coaches. Talented actors have acting coaches, football teams have coaches (a lot of them) why? Because they want to win! They know that a good coach will help them get from where they are to where they want to be, in the shortest amount of time.  That is what a Life Coach can do for you! A Life Coach can help you fully visualize your goal, create a written plan, give you tools to work with and keep you accountable until the goal is achieved.

May your life abound with all you hope and dream for.



Fear Can Stop You

You’re frozen. You can’t move, can’t take the next step. But … you want to. Oh how you want to. You want to do more, live more, be fully alive! Not just make it. Not just survive. You want to grow and expand and become more.  You want to give and love. You want to move past the pain, the hurt, the disappointments. In this grown up adult world you find yourself in – you want to fun more. You want the excitement, surprise, anticipation and play of your childhood back.  You can have it. It’s called the abundant life and you were born for it. In fact, it is promised to you. It is promised by one who cannot lie and who keeps His promises (each and every one of them) from the beginning of time until the completion of time. His faithful promise to you is this: “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”. John 10:10  So while fear can stop you, it doesn’t have to. You don’t have to let it. I know fear. Fear and I have been in the ring many times. It  has had me so far down in the corner, so beaten and bruised that I thought I was done. But I was not finished because He held my hand. He gave me strength to push back. To push back hard! Because this is my life! My life! And  I will not live it in defeat and you don’t have to either.

Your life is timed

desertThis journey you are on called your life, is timed.  It had a beginning and it will have an ending. What do you want to do with yours? You only get one shot at it. What will your story be? Each of us have strengths we bring with us on the journey and each of us do, will or are facing obstacles that we will either overcome or succumb to. In my almost but not quite yet 50 years on this beautiful blue planet, I have been down some roads, ran into some roadblocks (some I put up myself) and have come to know that each day, the good and the bad, the hard and the ugly are gifts.  Its all part of the story. You have a say in your story. You don’t write it but you do get to edit it.  How will you respond to the hard? What choices will you make?  A good Life Coach will help you see the path you are on, define where you want to go,  work with you to establish your goals and walk with you, even holding your hand if necessary.  I don’t know about you but when I get to the end of my story I want to be able to say ” That was my story, I lived it, I had a say in it, I loved well in it, I am pleased with it”.
