Is It Better To Have A Life Coach Or Be Your Own Life Coach?

Aug 28, 2008
The life coaching industry seems to be growing at a fast rate. It was only a few years ago, that finding a life coach was a difficult task. Today, it is much easier. If you have been wondering about finding a life coach, you may also have thought about being your own life coach, you may even be your own coach right now. So, which option is best?

What is a life coach? The simplest definition I can give you is a walking encyclopedia! They literally have answers. But, whereas a book worm is someone who simply has the theoretical the life coach who is actively practicing is someone who has the practical, and not just the theory, and here is where they can benefit you.

There are a number of choices when looking to find solutions to your problems. For example, if you need to increase income - a book may help, life coaching may help, a seminar can also help.

But, how many people like trying to find something in a book? You likely have to go to the index, and then flick through to find the page, then the section with the information. Trying to learn something, so you can apply it, can take time.

Wouldn't it be great to get an immediate answer? This is where life coaching can help. Because your life coach, likely knows the answer. You don't need to read a book; you don't need to invest years applying to know the solutions, because the life coach already has the answer.

From the last few points, you should have an idea of whether you really need a life coach or not. For some people, learning and applying is the fun part. So, being your own life coach can be a great idea. And it is personal development, and personal growth that can last a lifetime.

It can be beneficial to go with both options, and we see it all the time. Life coaches have their own life coaches. Business people and high achievers are their own life coaches, yet still have a life coach who also helps.

Most people will usually find that they will go with both options. Some may use more of a life coaches help, while some will choose to go through mostly their own personal development, through books, etc.

There is a big factor which comes into what choice you make, and that is your own ability to get up and go. If you are a self starter, then this can be great, as you can literally start on projects and act on them.

For people who can't get up and go, and need motivation, a life coach can be a great way to have that accountability, where we feel compelled to act. In either case, both options are a great way to find the solutions to your problems, and reach your goals.
