LIFE (Social, mental/emotional, relationships)
Life coaching for personal growth can cover a range of issues and concerns you may have. This could include money management, confidence building, public speaking and any other skill you believe would promote personal growth.
For a personal growth plan to help you, you have to feel ready to start making these changes and be willing to put the effort in to achieve them. To discover whether personal growth coaching is for you, consider these questions:
Do you wish you had better communication skills?
Do you want to become more confident?
Do you want to be more motivated?
Do you need a specific skill to advance further in life?
Do you want to be happier?
The way you approach or deal with a situation will determine the way it turns out. For example, if you are having problems at work, you may need to develop or improve certain skills. Maybe you need to build self-confidence, be more motivated, control your temper or develop the ability to say yes or no.
A life coach for personal growth may be useful for many reasons. Whether you have one skill you wish to target, or there are several issues contributing to your concern, a personal growth plan may help.
Mental and emotional state
Do you approach life negatively or positively? Do you wake up dreading the day or are you able to have a spring in your step and feel ready for what’s ahead? Often, the way we feel about the events or changes that are happening can affect the way we cope. In order to promote personal growth, I will ask you to place emphasis on your thoughts and meanings of things. For example, if you wish for success, you will need to ask yourself what that success means to you. What makes you successful? How do you know when you have reached ‘success’?
Personal growth coaching can often help you address any social concerns you may have, such as lacking the confidence to meet new people or make friends. I will be able to help you recognize and overcome certain anxieties by teaching you to examine your feelings. These anxieties could include arguments, coping in relationships or dealing with anger.
Relationships and happiness
Your happiness can be greatly affected by the status of your love life. It doesn’t matter if you are in a relationship or single, but take a moment to consider if you are happy. Recognizing the state of your happiness is the first step towards making positive changes. Maybe you are single and find it hard to maintain relationships, or maybe you are in an unsatisfying, long-term relationship and you just need the confidence to confront the issues. It is important to learn what you want and happy you are in the current situation to understand what improvements can be made.
