Maybe you have a dream of writing a book, becoming a musician or climbing the ladder of success to corporate executive. You haven’t made it a reality yet and don’t know where to begin or what steps to take. You are hampered by “what ifs,” doubt and dozens of questions that keep you at a standstill.
Just like coaches who push athletes to greatness in sports, Life Coaches work with their clients to find success in their jobs and lifestyles. Life Coaches have worked with people to provide guidance in getting ahead in their careers, make major life decisions, such as a move or promotion, and find an acceptable work-life balance.
Life Coaches at Thriveworks in Pflugerville, TX are knowledgeable about the various issues that keep people from attaining personal growth and work to motivate them and provide feedback. For the past 10 years, Life Coaches at Thriveworks have worked with thousands of people to help them take advantage of their own strengths and talents, as well as to set goals and achieve them.
Life Coaching in Pflugerville, TX Focuses on Growth
If you were able to change your life, what would be different? Where would you go, and what type of work would you choose? What kinds of friends would you have? These questions are called “Miracle Questions” in Life Coaching, and exploring the answers can help you to determine and communicate the goals you want in life. They may be buried inside you, because of the many things in life that get in the way of accomplishing them, such as financial burdens, stressful relationships, illness and day-to-day life. The “disruptions” are obstructing you from achieving your goals, and an experienced Life Coach at Thriveworks will work with you to identify the issues keeping you from moving ahead and focus on what you want in life.
Life Coaching to Bring You from Neutral to Positive
Many people are not able to answer what they would change in their lives, what would be different, what type of work they would choose and what their friends would be like—the Miracle Questions. Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with clients to move forward from dissatisfaction and neutral to positive change.
Measure the following areas, from a negative 10 to a positive 10—with zero being neutral—to find the areas where you are satisfied or disappointed.
- Physical Environment
- Friends and Family
- Romance and Intimacy
- Personal Growth
- Fun and Leisure time
- Spiritual life and religious activities
You may have found that some areas measured satisfactorily, while others were disappointing. What areas do you want to work on to bring them from negative or neutral to satisfactory?
Scenarios for Life Coaching
The Life Coaches at Thriveworks will work with you to set and work toward your goals; learn about networking and interacting with people with a variety of personality types; make great first impressions for your personal and professional relationships; discover your value; follow through on intentions and promises; work through adversity; create a healthy work-life balance and more.
In addition, Life Coaches will work with you if you are experiencing the following situations.
Sometimes people feel stuck when they have decisions to make, such as whether to get married, leave a relationship, switch careers, make a geographical change or follow a dream. They grapple for an answer, swaying between “too risky” or “go for it.” They wonder what they’ll do if they “go for it” and it doesn’t work out. Or, they ponder if they don’t do it and then regret their decision. The questions and doubts swirl around, causing confusion.
Life Coaches will work with you to dig underneath the thoughts and feelings of “what ifs,” helping to discover what is important, as well as clarifying and sorting it all out.
Some people don’t really like their jobs or feel like they are living their lives on auto-pilot. The situation may be that a recent college graduate finds they don’t love the field they studied in, or the routine as a parent/spouse leaves them unfulfilled.
Life Coaches will work with you to sort out your true personal values and clarify what is important. Then, you can decide how to honor those values.
When you are unhappy, you may need a change—or maybe you need to change. Life Coaches will work with you to pinpoint where the unhappiness lies and what needs to be changed. Many times, people who are unhappy are not living their personal values, and the values that are true to them are being suffocated. (For example, a person may not love their job. The boss is not making them unhappy. It can be they value purpose-driven work or creativity and are not getting it.)
It sounds ironic, but the ideal time for a life coach is when you are happy and love where you are in life. You are more likely to be open to growth, wonder what else is out there and be more willing to do the work. Being happy is a great motivator for people to grow.
Just out of a Relationship.
Starting over is a great place to be, and you have every reason to be excited about beginning again on your own terms. But, if you don’t know what your terms are, working with a life coach can help to clarify what you want, why it is important to you, what is possible for you, and how to get it. Life Coaches will work with you to brainstorm, strategize and explore what you want as you begin the next stage in life.
You have a routine and a comfort zone, and any variation of it makes you uncomfortable. It might be in one part of your life or all parts. While life should be comfortable, it also should be fun and offer some kind of excitement.
Life Coaches will work with you to help you step out of your comfort zone.
You may be afraid of the dark, looking stupid, failure, success, what people think, what they might say, being alone, being seen, not being seen, leaving a relationship and much more.
Life Coaches will work with you to identify fears and the tools to take action, as well as explore the way you look at and feel about your fears. The fears are there, but you will be able to stand up to them with more courage.
When you experience a death in the family, sometimes it is hard to go on without them.
Life Coaches will work with you to reconnect with your strengths, coping strategies and the relationships, activities and inner resources that give life meaning. In addition, therapists work with you to explore your feelings, strengths, untapped capabilities and thoughts that may be slowing the healing process.
While the marriage was happy at one point, it is now filled with poor communication and resentment.
Life Coaches will work with you to create a better relationship instead of just tolerating the marriage. Therapists will teach strategies for better communication, reducing stress and increasing self-care.
