Introduction to Life Coaching
What if your life could be changed in an instant? What would you do first? Where would you go? Where would you live? How would you feel? What would be different? In life coaching, we call these the, “Miracle Questions.” It is an exercise often used in counseling and life coaching to help individuals imagine the true desires of your life. Determining the answers to these questions can help you figure out how you really want your life to be and what is most important to you.
Many of us get bogged down in the common activities of daily life. We get frustrated, bored, lonely, tired, and unable to even remember the goals that we have for ourselves. We simply are trying to make it through each day. We once had a dream for how we wanted our life to turn out, but now we do not know how or where to even start to accomplish this.
Set Goals, Achieve Them, and Become Happy
Were you unable to answer the miracle questions? If you were not able, you are certainly not alone. Many people have trouble seeing the bigger picture in life and making changes towards their goals. Life coaching can help you with this.
When attempting to accomplish a goal, the beginning step is determining what the blocks are in your path to success. As life coaches, we can help you figure this out and develop a plan to overcome your obstacles. When you begin to make real changes in your life and start to believe that this is actually possible, things will change more quickly and progress will become tangible.

Exercise Caution When Seeking a Conway AR Life Coach
Life coaching could be called a trend, but it is here to stay. Besides life coaches, there are health coaches, personal coaches, and fitness coaches. It is a fad to use the term “coach” to avoid needing any professional licensure. There is no governing body that oversees those calling themselves a “life coach.” This means that anyone in Conway AR at all can call himself or herself this without having any education or experience in this area.

Life Coaching Focuses on Growth
Counseling often helps individuals move from pain to healing. Counselors and mental health professionals can use certain scales to measure this, such as negative 5 being very painful, and 0 being neutral. In most cases, life coaching works to bring a person from neutral to positive, such as from 0 to a positive 5, which includes fulfillment and achievement.
Of course, it is not so simple to measure our life in numbers and scales. There are many different facets of our lives that can be measured, and in each category we can be excelling or having extreme disappointment. We see people in our everyday lives that demonstrate this. Politicians, celebrities, successful business men and women can all can be excelling in the public eye, and then suddenly have their lives crumble, also in the public eye.
In life coaching, there are different aspects of life that we look at and determine satisfaction. In each category, a certain measure could be given, from 1 to 10.
- Physical Environment
- Friends and Family
- Personal Growth
- Fun and Recreation
Where would you rank yourself in each of these categories? Do you feel stuck in a certain area and cannot achieve growth? If you are not ranking at a 10 in all categories, or even in one category, you are not alone. While we may achieve a 10 at one point in a certain area, the very next day, we could plummet to a 1. Being unexpectedly laid off at work, the sudden death of a loved one or even a pet, deployment to a war zone; life has many ways of throwing us off track. Even without experiencing a serious tragedy or trauma, we may not be functioning at a 10 in any category.
The famous psychologist Erich Fromm once wrote, “Man [and woman] always die before he [or she] is fully born.” Although this may sound negative, it is actually a very positive thought. We will never fully realize our full potential. There is always more we can achieve, more we can dream, and more we strive to do in our short time on earth.
