"Having a life coach is so L.A..."

HAVING-A-LIFE-COACH-IS-SO-LA-ANDREA-LEDA.jpeg

Were the comments on said reality TV show I may or may not have been indulging in. I can't help but react or let it get a tiny bit under my skin because it touches on my own vulnerability. I was on a counseling track many years ago and did enjoy my work except for how heavy I felt at the end of each day. Do I think you can counsel without feeling heavy? Absolutely! That just wasn't my personal experience. I almost gave up on working with people but kept creating work for myself where I could have client relationships where we were building something together. In a way I think being a life coach sought me out. It is all the parts I LOVE about working with individuals but at the end of the day I am revived and energized. There is a stigma attached to life coaching though - for example, is it New Age? Frivolous? Lacking in professionalism? Plus there are many (many) practitioners out there life coaching with no education or certification under their belt, just a plaque outside their door or on their website claiming, "coach!" ALL that aside my favorite question is, "What is it a life coach does?" And that is truly the reason for this article today.  

"Ninety percent of all those who fail are not actually defeated. They simply quit." - Paul J. Meyer 

As your life coach my job is to not just keep you from quitting, it's to get you moving forward again. 

My sole job is to make certain you are successful. In life you can have TWO things – you can have REASONS or you can have RESULTS. When you have a reason, you don’t have a result. When you have a result, you don’t need a reason. When you don’t do what you say you’re going to do, it continues to lower your self-esteem and often give up! 90% of people choose reasons over results.

The missing link? You need an action plan in place to make sure you are going to DO what you say you’re going to do. Sometimes all that is missing is having someone in your court that will take you from where you are to where you want to be. Right now you don’t do what you say you’re going to do – you do it some of the time, just not enough to get where you want to go.

Now, IF you want sustainable results, long term change, someone you can count on, and to be certain your inner critic won't get the best of you and sabotage your success then you will want to hire me. BUT, and this is really important, only under these conditions:

  • You want to be held accountable
  • You are ready to detach from your story
  • You WANT to move forward
  • You are serious about loving YOU again
  • You want tangible and real time results...

Because I won't fluff it up for you - there isn't time for that! When I work with you it's because you desire change now. Not tomorrow or a few months from now. You want to get to work today. TODAY is where I work, in your present moment. That's all we really can guarantee so let's begin with that. You don't need to wait months and months to create the habits and take the actions that will lend you the results. You don't have to be great at knowing how to move yourself forward, in fact if you did know you would have done so already. 

Here's why I want to be on your side: I am educated, experienced, AND have been there. It doesn't get much better than that. I've even made it so simple to work with me - you can have a complimentary consultation, sign up for my weekly newsletter, or work with me privately.

If you do nothing expect to get nothing. If you keep doing what you're doing, you will keep getting what you're getting. Let someone else stand beside you and help move you forward so you don't have to do it again. Wouldn't that really be the best?!
