What comes to mind when you think of the word “coach”. It’s often someone revered who has a specialized ability to push you to be your best. To hold you accountable and get you to think beyond your current level of skill. While athletic training might be the first thing that comes to mind, but with personal coaching, coaches are no longer just for sports.
Some people have a natural knack for helping others. We’ve all seen this in action as many of us are lucky enough to have a friend or family member who always helps us explore our options and who challenges us to be our best selves. Life coaches are trained and certified and often have an area of specialty—moving forward after divorce, finding your purpose, mindset shifts, and more. They will help you set measurable goals in times of transition or desire for change.
A career coach is someone who helps you determine the new direction to take your career. This might include finding a field you love, going back to school, how to structure your business, or helping you create a new business. Career coaches are able to find valuable insights regarding your natural talents and trained skills to find a career you love.
Many spiritual coaches have practices and beliefs that are not grounded in a specific religion. This includes Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Abraham Hicks, and Deepak Chopra. If not a spiritual coach look for someone that has books or online courses centered around shifting your mindset to one that is more joyful and positive.
Next time you feel stuck in a rut consider working with a specialized coach.
