Thinking about a career change? How a life coach can help in 3 steps
7th March, 20170 Comments
Primarily people that work with coaches are already in a successful career. However, they are often unfulfilled and know that they can offer more to the world and to themselves.
They have made the vital realisation that we only get one life and upon working with a life coach they have become brave enough to work towards what truly makes them happy. Even when faced with uncertainty and risk, they are still willing to work towards a much more fulfilling future.
So I thought it would be helpful to write this article to show how a life coach can help with that very important process.
First of all - congratulations!
If you are someone that can relate to the above, that means that you have made the decision that you are worth more than what it is you are currently doing and you want to make a change. That is most probably the hardest step.
Some people go their wholes lives without making the realisation that they should be doing what gives them true fulfilment. Others make the realisation but never take action!
Just by reading this article you are taking action.
1) A life coach is all about asking the right questions.
For most people, when making the decision that they need a career change, they can feel it within themselves that something needs to change. You may know exactly what you want to do instead, in which case with your coach you will dissect the details of that journey. Or you may have absolutely no idea, just a feeling!
By asking the right questions that a great life coach would have developed over a long time, the pathway to exactly what it is you should be doing with your life becomes crystal clear.
2) Stepping outside your comfort zone.
This can seem very daunting and very lonely but it doesn't have to be. It's very likely that you will have to step outside of your comfort zone when going on this journey to find your perfect career. Doing it alone can be enough to put people off and that's completely understandable - when you work with a life coach you never have to be alone.
They will work with you to make sure that you are prepared to tackle anything that comes your way when making this change. This is because they would have discussed all eventualities and also asked the right questions to bring to your attention problems that you may not have thought of.
A solid step by step plan and tremendous preparation is key.
3) Take that big first step.
Working with a life coach will allow you to make sense of all emotional attachments that you will have to any of the steps on your new plan. Some will be scary, some will be exciting and many will cause uncertainty.
As long as the preparation is thorough and the desired career is truthfully what you want to do with your life, then a life coach will take you through techniques and methods to make sure you are in the right mindset to take that big first step towards your brighter, happier and more fulfilling future.
