It is from here that we’re then able to truly help others to the same level of awareness: that the key to longevity and to a life well-lived is the strength and depth of our relationships. Hiring a life coach is much different from therapy, asking for family or friends to help, or choosing to ignore your discomfort. A life coach always has your best interest at heart. They do not have an ulterior motive or bring their own messy baggage to the table when you seek support. Their job is to keep you accountable to design and work an action plan to realize your full potential. They also lift you up when you are knocked down, encourage you when you become unmotivated, empower you to always seek better ways to relate to others, and how to listen to and act on your intuition.
When our inner and external world are congruent with one another; when what we think, feel, and do mirrors our desire to love and be loved; then we believe we’re stronger struggling and overcoming life’s obstacles together. When we’re not afraid to ask for accountability and support—this is when we find peace and joy in our every minute of every day, because our greatest fear that we’re unlovable and no one cares is not true. It never was true. Even when it’s hard, especially when it seems insurmountable, anything is possible when we ask for help from others.
