Manassas Life Coaching

Life Coaches in Manassas, VA—Prince William Counseling and Coaching

Coach Jimmy Dugan inspired his team to do the impossible both on the baseball field and off. His team was compiled of no average baseball players. In an era when men were off fighting World War II and most people thought women could not play baseball, Jimmy brought talented women together to form a professional baseball team. The glue that held the team together, Dugan held his team to high standards, and they rose to the occasion. Famously, he brought his team together when they were discouraged and inspired them, saying, “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard … is what makes it great.” The full story is chronicled in the movie, A League of Their Own, and it is hard to watch the movie without wanting a Jimmy Dugan in your own life. What would it be like to have someone believe the best for you? Challenge you? Motivate you? And give you a pat on the back after a hard-fought win? If that sounds like someone you want in your life, know that life coaches are not so different than sports coaches like Jimmy Dugan. Many people are reaching out for help from a life coach to help them achieve the impossible in their own, personal lives.

Just like athletic coaches, life coaches help their clients know their weakness and strengths. They help their clients make a proactive plan for success. They focus their clients’ attention upon what really matters so that they can say, “no” to distractions. Coaching is not just for the baseball field.

“To excel at the highest level—or any level, really—you need to believe in yourself, and hands down, one of the biggest contributors to my self-confidence has been private coaching.” —Stephen Curry

Even NBA all-stars use coaching on and off the court. That is why Thriveworks Manassas in Prince William County believes that many people in all different stages of life can benefit from having an advocate to inspire, challenge, and encourage them.

Setting Big Goals

One of the best ways that life coaches help their clients achieve more, whatever more may look like for them, is through setting goals. When people regularly set challenging but sensible goals, they often experience a plethora of benefits. The research backs up many people’s experiences: people who set goals achieve more. One of America’s first inspirational speakers, Orison Swett Marden put it this way, “All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.”

Of course, fixing one’s gaze upon a worthy goal is often easier said than done. Often, the price that long-term achievement exacts is short-term sacrifice. That is where life coaches may be able to help. Life coaches often help their clients make the right goals—pursuing those changes that produce the most impact. When people get the hang of setting and achieving goals, here are a few of the benefits that they often experience:

  1. Increased self-restraint. Anything and everything is constantly pulling people’s attention away from what is most important. Knowing what the target is and how to get there often means people have an easier time saying, “no” to lesser things.
  2. Necessary but difficult steps forward. Goals often allow people to say, “yes” to adjustments in their life that they may have been avoiding. When the sacrifice serves a desired goal, then it is often easier to make.
  3. Whole-hearted living. Goals can align internal values and external actions. What people want becomes what drives their choices and actions. Often, people are happier when they are working toward a goal.
  4. Motivation. Everyone who goes after a challenging goal will experience times of setback and discouragement. Goals gives people a clear vision of the finish line and a reminder of why the sacrifice is worth the effort.

The wonderful thing about life coaching is that anyone can make a goal for anything. The goal can be person or professional—there is nothing off limits. People can set a goal for their attitude and what kind of person they want to become. People can set a goal for their finances and what kind of relationship they want to have with their money. People can even set a goal for fun and recreation and relaxation. If a goal expresses a value that a person holds, then it is worth setting and worth achieving.

“By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be.
Put your future in good hands—your own.” —Mark Victor Hansen

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
