Who Works with a Professional Life Coach?

I want to talk to you today about life coaching and the numerous benefits you can reap when you sign up with a life coach. You may be familiar with the term because you’ve probably heard your favorite celebrities talking about the practice! I’m here to tell you more about life coaching and how it’s helped a wide range of people, from world leaders to celebrities alike.

What is Life Coaching?

Before we talk about who can work with a professional life coach, let’s discuss what a life coach is. A professional life coach is a licensed expert who will essentially help you take charge of your life.

Not to say that you don’t have control over your own life. The art of life coaching allows you to view your internal motivations, desires, and goals. Your life coach asks you specific questions to get critical insights into what you want to get out of life. They then sit down with you and draft a customized plan to help you achieve the goals you want in a timeframe that works for you.

It’s super simple: you get to discuss whatever you’re struggling with, and an expert draws up a plan to help you do better in life.

If you’d like more information about life coaching or are ready to kickstart your journey, sign up for your first free discovery session today! I’ll guide you through the process, ask you some questions, and I guarantee you’ll love it.

Famous People and what they have to say about Life Coaching

When you think of celebrities, you might picture a famous, self-assured person who doesn’t let anything get in their path to success. This isn’t true because celebrities are just like ordinary people because they fear anxiety and sometimes lack motivation. They also need to reach out to someone who can help them achieve their goals.

Many prominent celebrities have worked with life coaches and remain grateful to them till this very day. Let’s look at some of the famous names who attribute their success to life coaches.

#1: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah has made a name for herself with her award-winning talk show, her books, and her philosophy of life. She’s a well-known name internationally, and there’s barely anyone who doesn’t know her or her work.

Oprah gives credit for some of her success to her renowned life coach, Martha Beck. She’s been very vocal about how life coaching has helped her stay afloat through all these years. Not only that, but she advises her fans and followers to start working with experienced life coaches. Oprah views life coaching as one of the best ways to succeed in life.

Here’s what Martha Beck has to say about positive thinking, “Hopeful thinking can get you out of your fear zone and into your appreciation zone.”

#2: Leonard DiCaprio

Leo DiCaprio has been in the industry for a long time. He’s given heart-warming performances that have made millions of people all over the world fall in love with him. Despite his hard work and constant efforts, it took a long time for him to win an award that he wanted.

He attributes some of his success and mental peace to his life coach, Tony Robbins. Robbins helped him hone his skills and focus on his strengths to lead the life that he wanted to. By getting Leo to focus solely on the positive aspects of his personality. Robbins ensured that he would get to the top.

Leo equates his life coach to a friend who knows him. He said, “I get a friend to travel with me – I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It’s hard to be alone.”

Robbins has been the person who’s known Leo through all of his ups and downs and proves that life coaching is a powerful practice that works.

#3: Serena Williams

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t the only celebrity that Tony Robbins has helped. He’s been pivotal in giving a much-needed boost to Serena Williams’ life and goals. Robbins has helped Williams enhance her performance on the court by urging her to focus on her strengths instead of her weaknesses.

Williams often talks about how life coaching helped her come out of a very dark place. There was a time when she got severely injured and couldn’t train properly. Robbins coached her through this dismal period in her life and made her well enough to win a Grand Slam later on.

With Robbins’ teachings, Serena Williams learned how to convert her failures to successes.

#4: Britney Spears

If you know anything about Britney Spears, you’ll know that she’s had to overcome an extraordinary number of struggles and setbacks. She lost her way for a while when she was forced to raise her children by herself and was always hounded by the press and paparazzi. She lost her self-esteem, confidence, and self-worth.

However, she was able to bounce back from all of that with her life coach’s help, whose name she keeps hidden. This anonymous life coach helped her regain her sense of self, and she was able to get back on stage and rebuild her professional and public image.

Her life coach helped restore the thing she needed the most: self-belief. Spears seems to have overcome her struggles quite successfully with life coaching.

The Bottomline

As you’ve read, famous people need help too. Life coaching is simply a way to identify your unique struggle and then plan to overcome it. There’s no shame in reaching out to a licensed expert who is willing to help. In fact, not reaching out can often do more damage, and I urge you to keep that in mind.

Self-Care in the time of Covid-19

self-care during covid-19

Covid-19 has changed the world, literally. This last year has forced people worldwide to stay indoors and find new ways to stay entertained. These drastic measures have also led to an increase in mental health issues, and numerous people have found themselves becoming anxious or depressed.

I want to talk to you about the importance of self-care, especially during these trying and turbulent times. It’s easy to neglect our well-being when we feel like there are external things to focus on. It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious about our circumstances, given the situation. However, you can also use this time to reflect on and renew your relationship with yourself. You can put yourself on the path to well-being by practicing several essential self-care habits during this time.

If you are experiencing any emotional or existential crises and don’t know how to work towards your goals, please book a discovery session with me. I’m a certified life coach, and I’ll discuss your current struggles and help you draft a plan for your future well-being!

What is Self-Care?

Before we talk about self-care practices, it’s essential to discuss what self-care looks like. Self-care can sound like an intimidating concept, but there’s nothing to it.

Self-care is essentially what it sounds like: taking care of yourself. You have to consider yourself the most vital part of this equation and do anything and everything that will benefit your well-being. I will go into more detail about what this looks like on a practical level, but for now, all you need to know is that consistent self-care leads to better self-esteem, more exact thoughts, more focus, and a lot more benefits.

Self-Care Habits to Adopt During Covid-19

I’m talking about self-care during these times because we all have extra time to spend indoors or at home. Most people have adopted a work-from-home structure meaning they are free to stay home while they go about their day.

This naturally frees up more time in our daily lives, which can then be used to indulge in self-care habits. Let’s look at what these are.

#1: Take out time to reflect

It’s hard to take out time to meditate or reflect when we’re running around busy in our workplaces. We often forget to take those precious ten minutes after we wake up to think or meditate. Most of our mornings are spent rushing to get ready and get out of the house.

One of the best self-care practices is to allocate ten to fifteen minutes after you wake up to reflect on your life. This is a great way to get used to introspection. You’ll start to get more in touch with your emotions and become aware of your insecurities. This sounds scary, but it’s not. It’s a beautiful process that will allow you to approach yourself with healing instead of judgment.


#2: Book time with a life coach

One of the best ways to incorporate self-care into your life is to start consulting a life coach. If you don’t know what a life coach does, let me explain. A life coach is like a coach for your life. Life coaches have significant experience in dealing with people’s ambitions, goals, and struggles.

I usually start with a free discovery session, where I get to know my client. I ask them specific questions relating to their current struggles and lifestyle. Over the next few sessions, I get to know them better and develop a detailed plan that they can use to accomplish their particular goals. I then keep checking in with them to ensure that they’re on the right track to meeting their objectives.

Talking to a life coach is an ideal part of any self-care routine as it allows you to open up to someone who can give you a strategy for your life path.

#3: Pick up a new skill

Time indoors might be a blessing in disguise if you know how to use it. An essential part of any self-care routine is to add something novel and exciting to it. You will love being presented with a new challenge and will be eager when you see how quickly you tackle it.

I would suggest picking up a new hobby or skill to ensure your time during lockdown doesn’t go to waste. This can vary from person to person, but here are a few skills you can easily pick up:

  • Learning a new language
  • Knitting or crocheting
  • Reading a book per week.
  • Solving crossword puzzles
  • Keeping a daily or weekly journal
  • Taking an online class
  • Learning new exercises

And there are a lot more you can add to this list! Do you see where I’m going with this? The possibilities are endless.

You might be confused about how learning a new skill would help you practice self-care. Well, once you set yourself on the path to learning something new, you’ll force yourself to be disciplined. This means fixing your sleep schedule and generally creating a stable routine for yourself. Once these things are in place, you will automatically feel a lot better about yourself and your general lifestyle.

Why Self-Care Routines Work

Now hear me out. For anything to work, you need to stick to it and be consistent. It’s the same thing with self-care practices. If you make them a part of your daily routine, they will help you find a sense of well-being and lead you to growth.

This is precisely why self-care routines work. They enable us to handle our daily lives better as we get more in tune with our inner selves. Once we understand our inner worlds more profoundly, we can start to make positive changes to our external life.

What is a Discovery Session?

what is a discovery session

Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery? Want to take the next step to create a better sense of well-being? You’re in the right place.

I want to talk to you today about how you can reframe your mindset, boost your self-esteem, and work your way towards self-fulfillment. It might sound too good to be accurate, but if you stick with me, I’ll help you understand how easy it can kickstart your journey.

Let’s Talk Self-Fulfilment

So, why do we talk so much about self-fulfillment? What exactly is it that we’re trying to attain? When people talk about reaching a high level of personal growth, they’re talking about emotional evolution. It’s deemed highly desirable to attain a positive mindset, react rather than attack, and shift your perspective to make life better.

Self-fulfillment is simply the culmination of all of these factors. The path to complete self-growth is not easy, but it’s not complicated either. As with any problem, there is an available solution, and there are tools you can use to achieve it.

I’m going to tell you about some of these tools now.

Your Free Discovery Session with a Life Coach

If you’re confused about what a life coach does and how they can help you, keep reading. A life coach is a trained professional who can teach you to retrain your brain, shift your perspective, and work on any other goals you may have.

Think of a life coach like a sports coach. A good sports coach studies the field, his team, the opponents, and then puts all these things together to create a strategy that will help you win the game. Any good coach must be an expert in their work line because they can’t help you if they don’t have prior experience.

The sports metaphor is a good one and applies to how I approach life coaching. The first thing I like to do is to urge my clients to book a free discovery session with me. During this session, we have an initial call where I introduce myself, talk about what I do, and then ask my client to tell me what they’re thinking of or going through.

Of course, one call or session isn’t nearly enough to understand my client’s unique struggles, but it’s a good start. I ask questions, prompt them to reply, and challenge them to rethink their beliefs to attain their goals.

The free discovery session is a jumping-off point to a beautiful relationship where I design customized plans for my clients, depending on what it is they’re looking for.

How Can a Life Coach Help?

Now, let’s talk about how life coaching can positively impact your life. When you sign up with a life coach, you should be clear about what you want to get out of the sessions. This applies to almost everything in life. You don’t need to have a crystal-clear idea of where you’re trying to get to because this will be unraveled during sessions, but you must have some understanding of what you’re struggling with.

Think of a life coach like a friend who will challenge your beliefs and introduce you to new perspectives about life. They will also give you powerful insights while encouraging you to achieve your goals.

Life coaching is different from therapy, and this is important to keep in mind. A therapist addresses your past traumas and tries to work with you to overcome them for your current state of mind.

On the other hand, a life coach asks you relevant questions about your current situation in life and provides you with a plan for the future. If you implement this plan, with your coach’s help, of course, you will find yourself with new possibilities and opportunities. A life coach’s plan for you will help you with your future, and they will be there every step of the way.

Here are some of the unique benefits you will get when you sign up with a life coach:

  • In-depth insights: you will receive powerful insights that will challenge you to rethink how you perceive things around you. These insights can range from overarching ideas to the nitty-gritty that may be ignored in daily life.
  • A new perspective: you will learn how to retrain your brain and shift your perspective away from negative thinking to positive affirmations and beliefs. We must learn how to take things as they come instead of being volatile and reacting to every setback or obstacle. A positive mindset will only help you on your way to overall growth.
  • Improved self-esteem: life coaching will allow you to take space and focus on your inner world. There will be things you don’t like about yourself, but you can work on these with your coach and change the game. Once you start achieving your goals, you will start to realize how strong you are and capable of. This will automatically result in better self-esteem as you continue to realize your self-worth.
  • The ability to embrace change: change can be a scary thing for many people. This is understandable as human beings are creatures of habit, and normal fluctuations can feel catastrophic if you’re not prepared. Working with a life coach will help you embrace and accept change as a part of daily life.
  • Open to life: once you start focusing on your well-being and self-growth, you will find yourself becoming more open to life and everything it has to offer. I will work with you and help you break out of any beliefs or ideas that limit you. You will feel freer, more positive, and on the lookout for new opportunities. This will allow you to live your life the way you want and not just get through it one day at a time.

A new year is a new chapter, waiting to be filled in with new ideas, habits, and goals. It’s an extremely positive time of the year!

Everyone has different resolutions come December, but what do resolutions represent? Isn’t it also simple to set new habits to follow throughout the year? Well, humans enjoy the notion of fresh starts and the feelings of hope they bring about. Resolutions can vary from the easily achievable to longer, more complicated ones.

Some simple resolutions could be promising to drink more water in the next year or smiling more. More complex ones could be to recognize and remove toxic people from your life or promising to take up therapy and resolve any inner struggles. Speaking of, if you need any help in figuring out which resolutions to adopt, reach out to me and book a free discovery session today!

The Issue with New Year’s Resolutions

So far, so good, right? Resolutions seem to be warm and wonderful things with great transformative powers. Here’s where the issue comes in. resolutions are much easier said than done. Every New Year’s Eve, people craft a bunch of different resolutions but come February, they’ve forgotten all about them.

It’s understandable. New habits aren’t made overnight, and human beings need consistency and time to adjust to novelty. So, how do we create New Year’s resolutions that stick throughout the year instead of till January? Well, you’re about to find out! Keep reading to understand how to embrace this New Year with steadfast resolutions.

How to Craft New Year’s Resolutions that Stick

Step #1: Be crystal clear about what you want to accomplish

This is the jumping-off point for the whole discussion. It’s important to know what you want to achieve and make a list of your priorities.

One of the best ways to ascertain your current goals is to work with a life coach. Life coaching is essential for almost any phase of your life, and it’s not just limited to an active emotional struggle. Once you sign up with a life coach, you can open up about your concerns and kick-start your journey towards self-awareness and self-fulfillment.

A good life coach will work closely with you to understand what’s going on in your life. When I take on clients, I reassure them with the knowledge that I will create a customized plan for them to follow so they can accomplish any of their personal goals.

Life coaching will allow you to list down all the things you want to work on, be it self-growth or building self-esteem. You will get a personalized strategy that you can then use to make sure you stick to the resolutions that you will draft. It’s a win-win situation!

If you’re eager to explore your upcoming resolutions, book your first free discovery session with me today. It’s that easy!

Step #2: Look at where you are right now

The way I see it, any sort of growth or progress starts when you can truly accept your current state. A lot of people live in denial about what are deemed to be ‘negative’ aspects such as flaws or insecurities. You have to understand that these are all part of human nature and where there is goodness, there may also be some negative traits.

Just because you have insecurities or flaws, don’t feel like you’re a bad person. You’re not a one-dimensional being, and it’s only when you accept this truth that you will be ready to start working on yourself.

Be open to writing down the things you feel you need to fix, be it a short or long list. You can also discuss these items with me during a free discovery session, and we can work out the feasibility of achieving your goals. You will find a lot of instant inner peace once you get your worries out into the open because you can then start to dispel them.

Step #3: Draft a feasible plan

This is where it all leads. Once you’ve followed the preceding steps, you can get to the good stuff, which is creating a plan that you can work with. This is your final list of New Year’s resolutions and your strategy of how to accomplish them.

This step will be a lot easier if you do it with a life coach. For example, let’s say you want to be healthier and overcome self-sabotage in the next year. When you discuss this with me, we will lay down a series of steps that will teach you to overcome the problem in manageable ways. Self-sabotage is a tricky thing to navigate, so we will begin by determining where the feeling is coming from and what motivations you have.

Then we will continue to write down tiny steps such as countering negative thoughts or reaching out to a friend or family member with clearer communication and therefore keep fighting the issue. You will see that these small steps will eventually lead you to conquer a larger issue, and you will have a sizeable goal to check off from your New Year’s resolutions list.

Bonus Tip: Reach out to your support system

A great way to keep yourself on track is not only to make a promise to yourself but to make it to the people around you too. You can pick a couple of friends or family members and show them the plan you’re working on to achieve your resolutions. Once you do this, you will find a sense of responsibility, and you will feel accountable to someone other than yourself. This can be a very positive and uplifting feeling and the more tasks you check off of your list, the better you will feel.

Is Covid-19 Making You Anxious?

is covid making you anxiousIf you’ve been feeling anxious about Covid-19, you’re not alone. The novel coronavirus has managed to bring the world to a screeching halt in more ways than one. There are too many far-reaching ramifications that cannot be ignored, and mental health is not an exception.

The onslaught of this global pandemic has shaken up people’s mental health in various ways. Some have it worse than others. However, the common thread that connects all of us is the ongoing anxiety of actually contracting the possibly fatal virus. You might have heard of a close friend or relative who’s had it. Or you could’ve seen the increasingly dismal news reports that make it seem like everyone has been affected.

I repeat: if this situation is making you anxious, you are not alone.

How Covid-19 Induced Anxiety Can Impact Your Life

There are a lot of ways in which this specific anxiety can make you feel crippled. You might always worry about your health, your financial situation, and your family, among other things. This is perfectly natural and you shouldn’t give yourself a hard time about it. Anxiety festers itself through thoughts, which are intangible and therefore, frightening.

Susie Pettit is a North Virginian Life Coach who asserts that anxious thoughts feel real and can inhibit our life more than their trigger, i.e., Covid-19.

She says, “thoughts are everything. There’s nothing more important than how we think about the things in our life…Like ‘it’s the coronavirus that’s making me nervous!’ No, it’s your thoughts that are making your nervous.”

It’s obvious then that Covid-19 induces anxiety which in turn can negatively impact our lives and our progress. It can be pretty tough to tame anxious thoughts, mainly because they can make you feel like you won’t be able to get anything done. So, how do you make your way to a solution during this global pandemic?

The solution: start working with your life coach. I offer Discovery Sessions where I lay out all the services that a Life Coach provides so you can feel at ease about signing up with us. Once you sign up with us, you will be able to make some sense of the madness of this global situation and put an end to your constant anxiety. Before I talk about how this happens, however, let’s discuss what it is that a life coach does.

What Does a Life Coach Do?

The first thing to understand about life coaching is that it’s not therapy. It may be similar in the sense that you will talk to a professional. However, where therapy is based on insights, past events, and has formal education and licensure in mental health, life coaching looks at your current situation and focuses on the future and has a different set of educational requirements.

When you sign up with a professional life coach, they’ll help you make your way to the future that you want. Professional life coaches have a ton of experience, both personal and professional, and they use it to identify their clients’ goals as the first step. Then they create a customized plan that tracks progress and enables clients to achieve those goals.

Think of a life coach as you would of any other coach. My job is to work with you to come up with a detailed strategy on how to accomplish different tasks. This doesn’t mean that I won’t focus on how you’re feeling. I’ll take your feelings and thoughts into careful deliberation. How you think is essential in that it forms the backbone of the strategies that will work best for you. If you want to work towards a mentally balanced life, you should sign up for your first Discovery Session and see where it takes you!

How a Life Coach Can Help with Covid-19 Anxiety

#1: They will help you to accept your situation

Jason Bernic is an Executive Life Coach who guides his clients through Covid-19 specific anxiety. He encourages his clients to understand and gradually accept the new normal. The world has become a place where precautions are necessary. According to Bernic, this new world order “requires us to adapt and construct a new normal – a new structure and routine…your foundation affects your mindset.”

Just like Bernic, I’ll help you come to terms with the changing world, and they will then help you find your place in it. New situations can only frighten you until you learn to adapt to them.

#2: They will help you find the silver lining

Like most situations, this one also has a light at the end of the tunnel. A professional life coach will sit down with you and gently remind you to focus on this light. They’ll reiterate the positives waiting for you on the other side of Covid. And they’ll make you remember the goals you thought you couldn’t work on because of the pandemic.

It’s possible to still accomplish the goals you wanted before Covid hit. However, your strategy might need a little tweaking. I’ll work with you to establish a new plan of action.

#3: They will remind you of what you can control

Often when we feel anxious, it’s because our minds make us feel like we’re helpless. Anxious thoughts can cause people to spiral because they feel like they have no control over their lives. This is a scary place to be in.

Once you sign up with an experienced life coach, they’ll remind you of two important facts:

  • One that the global pandemic, like some other things are out of your control
  • Two, that there are still lots of things that are in your control

As your life coach, I’ll encourage you to start focusing your energy on the events or things you can control instead of the ones you can’t. This will help if you always feel overwhelmed by the pandemic. Or if you find yourself thinking negatively about everything.

So, please take the next step and sign up with us today to learn how to retrain your brain into focusing on the positive aspects of any situation and be successful in taming anxiety in the face of Covid-19. It will take some work work, but it will be worth it!
