What Is A Life Coach and How Can Coaching Help Me?

What is a life or business coach?  What does a life coach do?  How can a life coach help me?  How does life coaching work?

Have you ever asked any of these questions?  Do you know anyone who does?

I do.

I really want to hire you, MiMi, but I have no idea what you do.  Well, what’s going on, I asked? What do you want?

Nothing really.  I just want to try out this life coach thing, but I’m not sure I even need one.  And honestly, I don’t even know what you do.

These are questions I get from friends almost daily.  At first, I was a bit baffled by the questions, but now I completely understand.

I have been in love with personal development since I was a 8-years-old.  It is the first time I remember having a conversation with my dad about why God put me on the earth.  It was the first time I questioned who and what I was.

I have read more books and articles about personal growth, life purpose and my life vision than I care to openly admit.  I have spent countless hours reflecting on my place in this big world.  So, when I get these questions, I automatically assume “well, if you had any interest in personal development you would know what a life coach is or does.”

But, I’ve created a new relationship with my judgment about these wonderful people in my life. I understand now that not everyone who is into personal development knows what a life coach truly does.

After all, we are selling the impossible.  We are telling people that they are the ones in the way of their biggest dreams. We are telling people; smart, intelligent, brilliant people that they are not afraid of failure.  We are telling them that they are afraid of their own greatness.

Totally counter intuitive. The real world doesn’t operate that way.

So, what is a life coach?

A life coach is a game changer.

A life coach is the person who meets you where you are, works with you to identify where you want to be, and supports you to shift your relationship to all the obstacles and challenges in the way so you can be the greatest version of yourself.

What the heck does this mean?

Here’s the scoop!

Let’s say you currently rate your love life at a 3, and would really love it be a 10 out of 10.  Well, what’s in the way of it being a 10?  Once you’ve identified the obstacles and challenges, it’s time to face the stories.

You know….

Those stories, limiting beliefs, negative self-talk that you have been telling yourself for years – they might be in the way. Those subconscious mental and emotional blocks holding you back. You may not even be aware of them.  They are sitting right in the middle of your blind spot.  You probably believe a 10 is impossible and only happens in the movies.

Once you seek and accept the support of your life coach, you get to create your version of 10.  You don’t get to settle for a generic version of 10.  You don’t get to say it’s impossible.

Your life coach is blissfully unattached to any outcome you may have, but he or she stands for you and your vison in light of every reason why you are going to kick and scream, “this can’t work” or “there’s no way I can do this,” or “I’m not good enough,” or “I don’t deserve this much happiness in my life.”

You coach holds you to the greatest version of yourself as you work together to co-create the life or work of your dreams.  Your coach helps you bridge that gap between where you are now and where you want to go.  Your coach helps you see the dialogue blocking your way, and supports you in creating a new relationship to that dialogue, recognizing that it has served you in the past, but it no longer does.

In coaching, you are the expert on your life.  Your coach is not your therapist, consultant, advisor, mentor or best friend.  Your coach is your partner on the journey to the best life you’ve ever lived.

Life coaches are not just for celebrities, athletes or CEOs.  Everyone deserves one!
