When I was first introduced to the profession of personal coaching, my first initial thought was that it sounded exactly like something I would love to pursue. I did further investigation into the profession and before I knew it I was happily enrolled in the Coach Training Program offered through Coach U University in Colorado, USA.
The more coaches I met through this program and the more individuals I personally coached, the more benefits I saw from having a coach.
Until recently however, I was not fully aware of the impact that having a personal coach can have in your life. When I hired my own coach, only then did I realize how quickly an individual can move forward towards their life goals.
When I hired my coach back in July, writing a self help book for Moms was only a dream. With the support, motivation, knowledge and accountability that my coach provided, I was able to write, self publish and begin to market my book, all within a five month period.
A coach assists you in keeping your focus so reaching your goals can be much easier as well as quicker.
Could I have written this book without the help of a coach? Probably. Would I have written this book without the help of a coach? Probably not. My coach assisted me in developing a time line and an action plan so I knew exactly what to do and when I needed to do it in order to reach my final goal.
Do you have personal goals you want to meet but have a difficult time staying focused and motivated? Do you make resolutions every year only to be making the same ones again the following year? If so, consider hiring a coach and let 2005 be the year of achieving resolutions, not just another year of making them.
