Some life coaches have experienced trauma, healed and overcame it, and are now helping others. They have become who they need for others. Other times, they have mastered an area of their lives and are now helping others who exhibit gifts in that same area. Your need for a coach will depend on where you lack the knowledge or resources to accomplish your goals. Coaching and consultants are taking the industry by storm. Anything you need, there is someone to help. It is a matter of finding them and making sure they are a good fit. By the end of this article, if you feel you need a coach but not in my area, please email me to help you find who you need.
Life Coaching does for the mind what a personal trainer does for the body. We help with assessing a situation to provide strategies for moving forward. It is a gradual process that allows individuals to dig beneath their thoughts and beliefs to help them understand internal obstacles to their success and wellbeing. Coaches help people identify and improve upon their: strengths, skills, achieve goals, and achieve personal and professional success. Coaches enable to manage transitional stages of life and challenges in a better manner. As an Emotional Wellness Professional, my company S.O.L.O. Coaching & Consulting L.L.C., helps goal-oriented individuals who cannot progress in their plans due to emotional setbacks, unhealthy perspectives, and limiting beliefs, to name a few. I come equipped as a Certified Belief Therapist, Life Coach, Journal Therapist, Organizer, and I am Cognitive Behavioral Certified. All of which I collectively use to help my clients go from goals to accomplished.
Life Coaching helps us take responsibility for our choices, thoughts, and actions and identify limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs originate from experiences and events. We subconsciously internalize fear and insecurity surrounding them, which drives our behavior and choices in a very subtle but powerful way. If we accept limiting beliefs, it will become a truth for us. What we believe shows up in how we behave. If you think you’re a failure, you may see it showing up in not getting anything accomplished or quitting before starting. People with the same thought process effortlessly sway individuals with this mindset. Something is too hard or impossible to achieve because they have put caps on themselves. Talking yourself out of everything is a cycle you do not want to be stuck in because it is hard to come out. You will have to work with a Mindset Coach to help you break this pattern mentally.
Other limiting beliefs sound like:
I’ll never be happy
I can’t be loved
Change is too hard
My family will abandon me if I change
I’m not smart enough
I don’t have the time
I’m not organized
If I relax, all hell will break loose
I’m not disciplined
Limiting beliefs are those which drive us in some way. Just believing them, we do not think, do, or say the things that they inhabit. False beliefs become an issue when we are unable to recognize them as being faulty or limiting. We will live our lives stuck in cycles when we do not seek help identifying the root issue.
The presence of a limiting belief shows up as:
- A lack of interest and enthusiasm for your job, business, daily life, or relationships. No motivation!
- Chronic procrastination
- No idea who you are
- Always has an excuse to avoid change
- A lack of passion
- Entertaining inner doubt about what you can and can’t do
People need guidance in the form of life coaching when they need:
- To resolve confusion
- Allay self-doubt
- Make decisions
- Pave a path towards the realization of their dreams and goals
- Clarify Issues
- Build Confidence
Once our mental blocks, internal challenges, and limiting beliefs are uncloaked, we can develop a newfound sense of energy and enthusiasm.
Take out your journal and answer these questions:
1. What are my goals?
2. Have you accomplished any of the goals listed? If not, why do you think that is?
3. Do you need help organizationally or emotionally?
4. If you were given the tools, would you use them to process what’s holding you back from moving forward?
5. How do you talk to yourself? What are you telling yourself about your goals/desires?
6. Have you ever sought help to reach your goals?
7. Describe your ideal life.

Help is here. Your time is now. You deserved to live the life you’ve always dreamed of having. I was the person who never completed anything. I would do so well only to come to a screeching halt. I allowed triggers from past experiences to send me down a depressive spiral time after time. I was wearing on my life caffeine does the heart. I did not know if I could make it after the last stint. But I rose and decided to invest in myself. I had a therapist and a coach, and I began studying myself to better understand what I was dealing with internally. There are roots, and the ax of truth must be laid to them to live our lives by design. You are worthy never forget that.
