Versailles News: Life coaching


Most of have lived our lives with unfulfilled dreams. Sometimes we don’t go for our dreams because they seem unrealistic; given our location, finances, commitments, age, etc. Other times we ignore our dreams, because of our conservative upbringing, lack of confidence, unsupportive family and/or friends which in general equates to our fear of failure.

Some of us are empowered with enough tenacity, confidence, and talent to achieve their dreams, while most of us lack one or more of the necessary traits to realize our aspirations. Sometimes we don’t even know what we want out of life, let alone how to obtain it. For these reasons and still more there are Life Coaches available for hire.

The profession of Life Coaching is similar yet different from counseling, consulting or instructing. Just as we may hire a personal trainer to reach a specific level of fitness or a financial planner to advise and tailor a personalized investment strategy, a life coach supplements our weaknesses.

Life coaches are encouraging cheerleaders keeping you focused and motivated. They are also sounding boards and trained observers capable of foreseeing obstacles or possible challenges. They can even help you discover your strengths and how to parlay them into happiness and success. Skilled life coaches support your goals and help you become the best you can be.

Life coaches can help you; live your purpose, create confidence, change careers, balance your life, manage grief or anger, improve interpersonal communications, achieve better nutrition or health, become more positive, overcome fears or obstacles, improve relationships, know yourself better, find love, uncover your natural talents, alleviate stress and worry, as well as, increase your productivity and income.

Personally I do not know any life coaches but they sound marvelous. Who wouldn’t want someone that has their best interest at heart, wanting you to become the best version of yourself, a confidant who knows your weaknesses and wants you to overcome them? After some reflection I realize I have indeed known and have had the privilege and benefit of two life coaches; my parents.
