There are so many reasons why hiring a coach is important to your success, both in life and in business, but three main benefits generally drive the desire toward coaching.
First, it helps you develop a strong mindset. It will tame the bully in your brain and silence the itty bitty shitty committee or the critical voice inside our heads that negates, minimizes, and limits our beliefs and capabilities.
One of the biggest obstacles to success and achieving your potential is your mindset. A great coach will understand that “inner work” can help individuals improve their outcomes and success by shifting their inner dialogue. By working with and shifting that inner voice, empowerment and excellence take over, and success becomes simple. The essential part of coaching is helping people learn to silence that “bully in the brain” and learn to work with their inner voice, helping them allow their instincts, or their subconscious, to take over. Sometimes that means distracting it, and sometimes it’s about exploring the ‘worst-case scenario’ and removing the fear. Shifting your results requires active participation and work. In order to thrive, to live the life you always dreamed of and deserve, you need to do the inner work. With the help of a coach, you will understand what creates and drives your behaviors and replace negative behaviors with positive ones that will drive you toward success.
Second, it will help you elevate your goals.
So many people are “playing small,” and we have to remember that if we play small, we stay small. Often people are just “showing up and throwing up” without a clear vision of what they want to accomplish. Or they are crafting goals that are so small they won’t help them with considerable gains toward success. As a result, they have little ability to strategize and make a plan toward achieving success. A coach will help you do just that. They will help you strategize and plan, gain a clear vision of what success means to you and how to attain it with an action plan, and hold you accountable while you take those steps to implement your plan. They will become your partner in success and facilitate your learning, ensuring you are consistently taking actions that create results. They will make sure you’re doing the marketing, administration, and operations you should be doing. And they will make sure you are delegating, connecting, and being consistent.
Finally, it will expose your blind spots.
A coach works as a mirror to help you become familiar with knowing what you don’t know so that you can gain the knowledge you need to succeed. It’s hard to make considerable gains toward our goals and ultimate success if we are ignorant of what we don’t understand. And it is impossible to know what we don’t know if someone isn’t there to tell us what we don’t know. A coach has the experience and knowledge to see where you are faltering in a way we cannot see ourselves. They understand that we are often unconsciously employing processes that are holding us back and can help alter our mindset so that this doesn’t happen anymore.
A coach is an invaluable resource, one that everyone should have to guide them on their journey toward success, and if you are ready to “make shift happen” and get out of your own way with one of our coaches, reach out today.
