Imagine this: You just landed your dream job and are now financially able to purchase a home. You start looking and find a house that has everything you could ever want so you and your partner decide to buy it. You have two dogs, a lot of friends, and spend your free time reading and playing your favorite sport. Your communication with your family is easy going and you never feel stressed when you get home from work. To celebrate all of your new accomplishments, you book a vacation to Europe. Does all of this sound too good to be true? Well, it can be!
It’s a great sense of accomplishment when you can take something and really think it’s tough, and then all of a sudden you conquer it. That makes you feel pretty good. –Jack Nicklaus
Thinking about your goals and actually achieving them can be difficult. Sticking to it, keeping yourself accountable, and make continuous progress is the only way we can achieve our goals. Life can get in the way and things change. That’s okay! It’s just important to stay on track and make small steps when and where you can.
If you have a list of goals, no matter how big or small, that you want to achieve, consider working with a life coach. Thriveworks Troy Counseling has a team of life coaches who are ready and able to help you find a happier, more successful state of being. You and your life coach will work together to come up with a plan of action to achieve the goals you never thought possible.
Could I Benefit from Working with a Life Coach?
Consider a few questions: Are there areas in your life that you wish you could improve on? Do you have a hard time holding yourself accountable? Do you want to get a promotion, buy a house, or start a family but just don’t know how to get there? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we suggest you explore the benefits of life coaching. The life coaches at Thriveworks Troy in Oakland have helped many people not only achieve the goals they set but work towards even bigger goals they never imagined possible.
When identifying what you want in life, it is important to acknowledge the things that are prohibiting you from accomplishing it. During your sessions, your life coach will assess different areas of your life to see where you are lacking and where you aren’t. Those categories include:
- Social life
- Living environment
- Leisure and entertainment
- Personal growth
- Romantic relationships
Once you have worked together to see what areas are lacking, your coach will create a plan of action to help you improve. For example, Cassie wants to go back to school so she can become an occupational therapist, not just an assistant. She isn’t sure how she will juggle being a full-time student while also keeping up with bills. She knows it will be hard to work a full-time job when her life will be centered around classes. Also, she wants to improve her diet but doesn’t have the motivation, or the ability to hold herself accountable. Cassie could benefit in many different ways by seeing a life coach. Life coaches can:
- Assist their clients in coming up with achievable goals
- Help their clients stay accountable for their goals
- Help their clients stay motivated
- Walk through their client’s career changes or how to work towards a promotion
- Help their clients figure out their meaning in life
Life coaches have one goal: helping you find happiness and success. They understand that your goals are unique, and they will craft your coaching plan based on your specific needs. If you feel like you could benefit from working with a life coach, consider working with Thriveworks Troy Counseling.
