Ways A Life Coach Can Help


Many things we help with boil down to having a misconception on how a person views their life and actions.  Although we are often willing to give someone else a break, we often see our own lives as stark 100% right or wrong with nothing except the extremes.  Life is not black or white; instead, it is infinite shades of grey.  Here are some of the ways we work ourselves into a rut.

We have a tendency sometimes of dramatizing small actions into gigantic events, which will end our chances for good things. Sometimes an error is just a tiny thing that is understood, and everyone moves on.

We love to jump to conclusions.  We probably think this would save time, yet we do not know what the future will bring, and we are usually not the best mind readers.

 We spend a lot of time in our past trying to tell ourselves what we should have done.  You cannot change the past.  Trying to find ways to fix that past is just a waste of time.  Change “I should have” to “I will.”

We often blame ourselves for not doing the right thing.  We forget that we were not the only ones involved, and we use emotions rather than facts to keep focusing on the negatives.  We need to balance our thinking.

If you find yourself labeling yourself and others or using some of the worries listed above, a life coach could help you refocus on better and more productive thoughts. If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again soon.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
