Life Coaches - Building Positive Encouragement

May 9, 2008
Are you in a quandary in regards to personal or business relationships? Are career decisions, making a difficult transition to a new job or career weighing heavily upon your mind? Is life getting a bit too difficult to cope with, but you don’t feel that there are benefits from consulting a therapist or psychologist?

Although you may feel it, you are not alone. If you are searching for someone to help you through a rough patch in life, someone who would give you positive encouragement, constructive criticism and some rock solid advice, you may wish to search out the services of a life coach. He or she wouldn’t treat you as if you were mentally ill, and wouldn’t pity you.

Life coaches are simply people who have achieved great success in business, their career field, or any other aspect of life, and have undergone extensive life coaching training in order to help others attain the same measure of success. A life coach can guide you through a series of steps to help you through whatever life transitions you might face.

Life coaches hail from many walks of life, occupations, and backgrounds. Some are well-known corporate executives or business owners, while others are famous writers, directors, or artists. However, many also hail from ordinary, otherwise unremarkable backgrounds, with the key difference being that they have discovered how to find their personal success and are ready to share their knowledge with you.

There are a lot of techniques for life coaching. One that is often used is called "constructive criticism", in which a life coach or other counselor will give you constructive feedback on your behavior and performance. They will cue you in to patterns that might be operating that are counter-productive to what ever it may be that you are trying to achieve. Almost all of us have some of these patterns, and typically we have no idea that we do. But someone else, especially a life coach or other counselor, can see them and explain them easily.

"Positive encouragement" is a tactic that is also popular with life coaches. As with bad or counter-productive patterns of behavior, we also have good ones of which we may not be aware. Your life coach can see where these are occurring as well, and re-enforce your use and awareness of them. In the complete package, life coaches will use these and other strategies that have been found to work with a variety of people, depending on the needs of the particular situation. And you can learn how to do this yourself. Are you struggling with personal, relationship, or career decisions? Life coaches are people who have been very successful in their fields, in business, or in a particular arena in life, and who have obtained specialized life coaching training in order to learn how to help others emulate their success. They guide you through a series of steps to become successful and/or to handle your difficult life transition. Many coaches are successful executives, small business owners, and CEOs. The tools that they use to teach success are many. One example of this kind of methodology is constructive criticism, in which mental coaches analyze your behavior, actions, and patterns.
