Are You A Good Life Coaching Candidate


You might have heard me talk of this before.  And, it does bear repeating from time to time.  Life coaches are here to help, and at one time or another, almost all of us can significantly benefit from a life coach.  We need to ensure we are ready and want to make the changes we need to do better.

Not everyone is the right candidate for life coaching at a given time. It takes some determination and some motivation to get what you need out of life coaching. Below are some explanations as to what tendencies some people may have. This is to give you an idea of what plays well for life coaching and what does not.

Are you willing to change?

Life coaching is all about wanting to change for the better. Life coaching is about your discovery of who you are and what you want to be and where you want to go in life. If you don’t like change, or you are unwilling to change, you may not be the best candidate. Life coaching is about understanding yourself and finding the changes that will make you a happier and better person.

Is your life good enough?

If your life is okay, and it’s good enough for you, then what is your motivation to change? Life coaching is about figuring out where you are in life and where you want to go. Life coaching helps you to figure out those where and whys.

Just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it.

Life coaches are not here to hand you a path of what to do. They are here to help you examine your life needs and desires. I could tell you what to do, and it would be great for me, but it would be entirely wrong for you because we are, after all, different people.  You have to face and answer your questions to know what you need and how to get there. Life coaches help by asking questions.

Do you have needs or desires you find unfulfilled?

If you do have needs that you are willing to look at and ask yourself the tough questions, and you are ready to take a chance on yourself to be a better and happier person, then you could be a suitable candidate for life coaching.  If I can help, please let me know.

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

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.
