“You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey” Abraham Hicks
Most often, people hire a life coach because they want more of something in their life (love, happiness, confidence, self-esteem, success, freedom, abundance, a new career, health and wellness, a more positive outlook, etc.) and/or less of something (fear, stress, procrastination, frustration, anxiety, unworthiness, powerlessness, overwhelm, feeling unfulfilled, etc.) In my practice, I often encounter people whose dreams are showing them where they are unhappy or in desperate need of change, but they have no idea about how to change their situation without external support. This is where life coaching comes in, because an outside expert can help them in ways they would not be able to see for themselves in a very supportive, empowering way. A coach will work on belief systems that may be holding you back, patterns that don’t serve you, be a kind constructive mirror and challenge you to achieve your highest potential. And because coaching can be done over the telephone, a coach can work with someone located anywhere in the world.

When you hire a life coach, you are paying for an accountability partner, information, new ways of perceiving things, support, collaboration, energy, empowerment, creativity, availability, advise, strategies and planning. Using the Law of Attraction, you are also paying for a spiritually based system that helps transform the way you think about things, incorporating processes designed to shift you vibrationally from what you don’t want, to what you do want so that you can immediately begin to see positive changes in your life. Life Coaching is a results-based interaction whereby the Coach is able to tap into the inner wisdom of the client to answer many of their own challenges and also provides a reflection so that the client can see how he or she may be thinking that is holding them back from what they truly desire.
The kind of coach you hire depends on the results you are looking for. If you are looking to increase sales, you will most likely want to hire a business coach, if you want to run your business more effectively and efficiently, you will most likely want an Executive or Leadership Coach. If you want to manifest a life partner or improve your current relationship you will probably want a relationship coach. However, many coaches are fluent in many areas within their practices. You want to look for someone you trust and who you feel very comfortable with and who demonstrate innate qualities such as sensitivity, empathy and intuition. Indicators that you have found the right coach include someone that will help you have enough energy, happiness, money, wonderful relationships, joy and the feeling of well being that gets you easily through your days. You also want to find someone who will help hold you accountable for the intentions you have set for yourself and keep you on target to achieve your personal and professional goals.
