It’s time to live up to your full potential.
Take the guesswork out of achieving your goals with Life Coaching. At Ideal Balance, our Life Coaching services help you identify what you want, develop a plan to get it and then we hold you accountable to achieving it.
What is Life Coaching?
You know all about athletic coaches. From peewee to the Olympics, coaches help athletes achieve their goals (winning) by developing a plan and coaching them to get better everyday and through obstacles that come up. The same holds true for life coaching.
There are many aspects to Life Coaching that make it a great choice for improving your life. First, having a life coach creates the time and space in your life for you to work on you. This non-negotiable time and energy clearly set aside for you to focus on what you’re working toward is priceless. Yet, you know it’s pretty hard to find that time and space these days.
Once you’re in the time and space, Life Coaching will provide you with questions that can and will challenge your perspective. That will help you understand what is truly keeping you from being unstuck and what is really going on in your head and your heart. So many people are out of touch with those things these days.
A Life Coach will help you develop a step-by-step plan to achieve your goals while helping you work through any hurdles that can and will show up. They will help you learn to identify and then manage your thoughts and emotions in order to get your desired results.
A Life Coach also provides accountability and support each week so you don’t lose momentum or focus.
What can you expect during a coaching session?
First and foremost, you can expect uninterrupted time and space to focus on you. There are no tangents. There is no back and forth. This is just 100%, uninterrupted focus-on-you time.
Next, expect some pretty mind-blowing moments where you really begin to understand yourself, your thoughts and your actions in a brand new way.
At your first session, we’ll go through a questionnaire about your life, where you feel you stand and what would be “Level 10” for you in each of the important areas including: spirituality, physical health, mental health, career/purpose, finance, relationships, time and more.
Thereafter, we’ll identify key steps you’ll take each week to achieve that “Level 10.” We’ll start by seeing what your progress was, celebrating what worked and identifying what didn’t, digging for why it worked or didn’t and then moving on to what needs to happen for the next session.
What makes a Life Coach different than a therapist?
A therapist primarily focuses on your past in order to manage your present. A coach looks at your present to create your desired future. Therapy sessions are usually more open-ended and client-directed. A coaching session will be more structured and led by the coach.
Isn’t a Life Coach just like a friend?
While friendships are important and amazing, they are a two-way relationship. That is, you wouldn’t expect your friend to only listen to your problems and try to help you every time you met. No, you probably go back and forth, listening and sharing, giving and taking. That symbiotic relationship is incredible, but different from that of a Life Coach. With a Life Coach, the focus never revolves around to the coach. Rather, the coach only gives to the relationship and does not take. A coach will give you their complete attention, while you would probably never expect such a thing from a friend.
A friend can often be less objective because they love you dearly. You often turn to friends for advice whereas coaches do not offer advice but rather guide you through your own thinking. Lastly, a friend typically hasn’t had the training and experience a coach has to keep conversations, thoughts, emotions and actions on track no matter the obstacle. A coach does not replace a friend. A coach can offer a new and exciting relationship that helps you go further faster at achieving your goals.
