Life Coach Or Life Hoax?

May 16, 2008
The latest craze sweeping the world is life coaching. It's quite an interesting concept if you sit and think about it. Whenever you need to shape your body the first person you're inclined to find is a personal trainer.

So whenever you need to shape up your life; shouldn't your first stop be to a personal life trainer? It really is hard to grasp the point of it all. It's just as easy to call up a buddy and get some good friendly advice, right? Some people still go that route, but most people now a day understand the importance of having a life coach.

It's important to have a trained professional by your side as you walk through paths of your life not sure which way to turn. Living in the 20th century, life moves at such a high pace that you must take advantage of every minute of the day.

Nobody wants to wake up one morning and look in the mirror regretting not being able to achieve the goals they dreamed of their whole lives. If you take the time to find a good life coach, you will never have to worry about things like that again.

An experienced "authentic" life coach will nudge you gently in the right direction and then follow beside you, not behind you like most others will. It's important to learn what to look for when you finally take the first step in finding a coach of your own.

At the present time, there are no strict governing guidelines regarding life coaching. Yes, there are organizations out there that offer a few certificates and maybe a gold sticker on a piece of paper, but is that what really matters? Not too many people are willing to risk putting their future in the hands of some person that showed up to a few lectures and paid a fee for a certificate.

Spend some time browsing through the internet and see if you can find the difference. I'm not talking about a competition of who has the flashiest website either. Good life coaches have a strong positive aura that just seems to explode out of them. Find a good site you feel comfortable with and then just read the words of the coach.

If you don't feel a comfort level within the first few minutes of reading then that probably isn't the right partner you need. Partner is a better word to use when you talk about life coaching. A coach is normally somebody that you would expect to show you how something is done and then have you keep doing the same thing until you have finally learned it. That's not really the point of having a life coach. You are looking for a partner in your journey to personal success not an instructor that's going to pave the way for you!

There are some amazing people out there and there are some mediocre wannabes. Take the time to learn the difference and your road to success will be smooth.
