7 Powerful Benefits of Hiring a Life Coach

The title of this article could easily be “The Top 20 Life-Altering Benefits of hiring a Professional Life Coach.” But, you would probably not read it all of the way through, so I decided to publish an abridged version of an almost endless list of benefits you gain when you hire a qualified professional life coach.

Before examining the benefits of hiring a life coach, it is probably best to define what the term means. One of the reasons that I rarely refer to myself as a life coach is that the term has become so generalized and almost anyone can take an online course to become one that the term has lost a significant amount of its significance. However, there are some remarkable life coaches out there that are capable of producing exceptional results. While more often refer to myself as a life strategist and performance expert, I still fall under the category of a life coach. A life coach is someone who has the skillset and expertise to help train and teach you how to achieve the goals and aspirations that you have for your life in the most time-effective and efficient manner possible.

What qualifies me as a life strategist and performance expert is 30 years in the fields of psychology, neuro-associative conditioning, neuro-linguistic programming, psycho-cybernetics, quantum physics, and more. Not to mention more than 30 years of success in the business world. Each coach is different and they bring a unique skill set to the table. “Life coach” is a term coined by Tony Robbins — a term he now hates, for the same reason I tend to shy away from when defining myself — the field has become watered down.

With all things being equal and based on the assumption that the life coach you hire is competent for that which they are being hired to do, there are some immensely powerful benefits associated with hiring a life coach. Following are seven of the most powerful benefits of hiring a life coach.

  1. A Good Life Coach Provides Clarity

A common obstacle to consistent success is ambiguity. It isimportant to develop a clear vision of what it is you want in life or it willbe extremely difficult to achieve. After all,how will you know you have reached your goal if you are not clear as to what itis? A life coach will help to develop a lucid perspicacity and vivid image ofwhat you are aspiring to accomplish. One of the first questions I ask myclients is, “what outcome are you expecting or looking for?” What are you hopingto gain by working with me? If they cannot answer this question, then this iswhere we start — developing a clear vision of the future.

2. Help Strengthen Your Personal Foundation

I often say that you don’t get what you want but who you become. If you desire a better life, it will require that you make some changing — that you achieve a consistent rate of growth. In order to create a lasting change, it will require a strong and stable foundation. Alife coach or life strategist will help you build that foundation so that youcan consistently build on top of it as you move forward.

3. Help You Identify Poor Thinking Habits

Your thoughts are the seeds of your destiny, and if you wantto change your life, this is where you have to start. At the most simplifiedlevel, your life is a result of your thinking. As a man or woman thinks so they become. Believe it or not, you areliving in the consequences and circumstances of your past thoughts. A good lifecoach will help you identify erroneous thought patterns and counterproductive paradigms that are not conducive to reaching the desired results.

4.  Accountability

Personal accountability is high on my list of priorities when working with my clients. First, there has to be personal accountability where a person is accountable to themselves for following through on what they say they are going to do. Next, they must be accountable to those who they care about. Finally, they must be accountable to there coach, who will remind them of the commitments they have made. A good coach will keep the vision in front of you and demand that you honor your commitment to reaching it.

5. Focus + Action = Results

A key element of benefitting from life coaching is shortening your steps or shortening thelearning curve. The goal is to intensify your focus and apply action that isguiding by your focus. When you combine focus and action, you will begin to seeresults that align with your goals. The goal is to reduce the trial and erroraspect of the push toward success. A good life coach will definitely help inthat area. There is no use tripping over obstacles when you don’t have to.

6. Rebuild or Reconstruct Your Self-Image

If there is one thing that I have learned in my years of applying psycho-cybernetics to the training process I use with my clients, itis the fact that if a person has a marred or negative self-image, it will be impossible to achieve the type of change that is conducive of consistent and long-term success. A person’s self-image is the bar that sets what they expectfrom themselves. Often, it will be necessary to help a person reconstruct amore powerful self-image that is capable of accomplishing the goals that are apart of a higher standard of excellence.

7. Help You Identify Your Purpose

There are very few things in life more frustrating in attempting to find fulfillment outside of your purpose. Yet, more than 85 percent of people in the United States are doing this daily. Working with a life coach will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses as well as your area of genius. When you discover your purpose, things simply make more sense, even the difficult moments. Understanding your purpose is an integral part of my training process. I tell my clients that once they discover their purpose it will make sense of their pain.

I consider myself to be an exceptional life strategist, and yet, I work with a coach. No one knows everything and having someone else who is aware of your vision working on it with you is immensely powerful.

The seven benefits listed here are by no means exhaustive. No matter where you are attempting to get in life, working with a qualified life coach will shorten the journey and make the journey more enjoyable.

What I wish to convey here is the idea of developing a clear understanding of what drives your actions. It is immensely important that you, first and foremost, have a lucid perspicacity of why you’re doing something. When you understand why you’re doing something that “why” or your “purpose” that will drive or push you through the difficulties that you will inevitably face —driving you through the challenges, driving you through all of the obstacles that you’re going to face as you move through life. When you have a sense of why you’re doing something you will possess a clarity of the motive. The motivation revealed in your “WHY,” as I call it, will be so strong that the momentum will literally carry you through even the darkest of situations and circumstances.

When you are certain of your “why” and your “why” is so huge that it will be bigger than any moment that you will ever face, you will develop a sense of certainty that is inextricably connected to your destiny that assures you that you will accomplish everything that you have set out to do. You’re going to be successful because when you arrive at these difficult moments you are going to be able to push through them because you going to look at it and your “why,” your purpose is going to be bigger than the pain that you are experiencing at any given moment.

Your “why” is going to be greater than the delay that will sometimes stand in your way. Your “why” is going to be greater than the complex nature of the enigmatic issues that you have to solve to keep moving.

You will consistently find yourself facing challenges but you will find out how to overcome them each and every time when you understand your “why!” When you truly invest in understanding the reason why you are driven to do something — your purpose — when you are determined to become committed to living in that purpose, then anything you face in life will be engaged with the confidence of knowing that you are built for the battle.

When you are driven by purpose, all of the answers to the problems to the problems you will inevitably face will be there and if they’re not there you will create them. Successful people wake up in the morning and they are not looking for someone to do something for them They understand that if there is an opportunity out there they will find it. When successful people wake up in the morning looking for that opportunity that they need to advance their dreams, their causes, their campaigns, and their desires, there is a sense of urgency in finding what they are looking for and they refuse to give up until they find it. If they can’t find it, they have such relentless tenacity associated with what they are doing and the reason why they are doing it that they decide to create the opportunity that they need.

One thing that I learned over the course of my life and that nothing happens in a vacuum. The Universal Law of Cause and Effect are always in play. There are no insignificant moments and there are no coincidences; everything has a cause and everything has a cost. When you understand the cause, you understand where the effect came from and you can now either repeat the cause if you like the effect or change the cause if you desire a different effect. You possess the power to disrupt and change the cause if you don’t like what it is producing. You are never stuck in any situation. Reality is a dynamic force, meaning that it is in constant motion — being shifted by the influences and perceptions of those experiencing it.

When you are driven by the outcome you desire, the outcome becomes the most important thing in your life and you risk losing sight of your purpose. More importantly, you risk getting caught up in the chase, which can lead to an abandonment of core values for the sake of achieving the goal. There is nothing inherently wrong with goals, but goals must always remain in the context in order to protect your character — the ultimate reflection of your value system.  When you are purpose driven, you are still headed in the same direction, but you are being driven by something with greater purity, your purpose. When I first decided to allow my purpose to drive me instead of the outcomes I was looking for, I took on a mindset that declared, I’m going to start moving in the same direction accomplishing the same things but instead of being focused on myself, I am going to focus on serving and helping others.

What I found when I shifted my paradigms is that I still achieved the desired outcomes, but there was a greater sense of fulfillment and accomplishment because I was making others around me better in the process. You are in control of your destiny, you are the master of your fate, you are the one that has been given the reigns of the direction you are taking a life. There will be all types of external influences that move against you as you progress through life. There will be all types of things that you’re going to encounter, but you have the ability to discern, evaluate, and interpret what these influences and impulses mean and to determine how you will respond to them. They will not control you; you will control them.

When you are purpose-driven, your purpose is immediately, directly, and intimately connected to your identity. What you identify with impacts what you believe, the manner in which you operate and function, and what you do when you face adversity, disappointment, disruption, and delay. When you have a clear sense of what it is you are here for and how you are going to make the world better, you will develop the capacity to effectively engage adversity in a manner that produces consistent and efficacious results.

When you truly understand your purpose, you will immediately abandon the idea that someone owes you something, and you will stop expecting others to do for you what you have the power and gifting to do for yourself. When you start looking inside, you will immediately feel the weight of frustration and disappointment lifted. When you stop placing making other culpable for your current state and embrace your power and capacity to determine your own course and state of existence, a huge weight will be lifted.

As you start to embrace the idea that you are here to offer the world something that will leave it in a better situation than you found it and you consistent look to add value to others, you not only make your situation better, but you make everyone in your periphery better as well.

The awesome idea of purpose is that it is connected to your identity, which reveals that you are a part of a design and if you are a part of design then there is a specific reason that you are here. It further reveals that because you are here for a reason, the provision for the fulfillment of your purpose is at your disposal — you only need to access it and activate it.

When you become aware of your purpose in life, you don’t become frenetic and unglued when things seem out of place or you encounter certain challenges. Your ability to identify with your purpose assures you that if you simply persevere while remaining true to your purpose what you are seeking will manifest itself in time. For this reason, I am able to experience the delay without experiencing discouragement. When you become determined to operate in your purpose, you will find that all of the “outcomes” you are seeking in life will automatically fall in line when you stop worrying about the outcome and start living inline with your purpose. ~ Rick Wallace, Ph.D., Psy.D.
