Miami Get A Life Coach

As an entrepreneur in Miami , you like to do your own thing. But going at it alone is not always the best idea.

There comes a time when you need an expert opinion to ensure you and your business reach it’s full potential. And that’s where hiring a life coach or a business coach becomes a smart move.

I’ve personally experienced the benefits of hiring a coach in my own business over the past year. Below are ten examples of how hiring a coach can make your business more successful.

1. Get Unstuck and Find Motivation

Without a doubt the best thing a business coach can do for your business is get you unstuck. As a business owner, you can get in our own way a lot, and spend a lot of time in your head. So you need someone to pull you out of the funk.

No matter how much self-motivation you might have, it seems nearly impossible to yourself to keep going. That outside push from a coach is what you need to get moving and get going. Even if it’s a confirmation of what you were already thinking, a coach can give you that extra jolt you’re looking for.

2. Challenge You to Try New Things

As an introvert who runs an online business, I can very quickly become enthralled in my own ideas and goals. This is a comfortable place because you can stay at home in your office all day “creating” and leave the outside world where it is.

If you’re anything like me, you know how hard it is to step outside your comfort zone and meet new people or try new things. This is one of best things about having a coach on your side. They will give you a gentle push to explore yourself and your ideas more, while giving you that tough love not to quit.

Everything we do in life is intertwined; our finances, our businesses and ourselves. For this reason I’ve worked with both a life coach and a business coach because I needed help getting over my mental and financial blocks.

3. Increase Your Creativity and Income

Once I was able to get past my (often self-imposed) roadblocks, my creativity was unleashed and I was able to start brainstorming ideas for better products and services for my customers. A coach will give you the courage to get out of your own way, so you can charge what you’re worth, start a line of products to make more money, or increase your prices.

A coach also creates a safe place for you to hash out ideas, test theories and ensure you showcase your work properly. For many of us creatives, it’s hard to brag on ourselves or share our accomplishments, but a coach will help you get past that insecurity. And once you get that ball rolling, it will be hard to stop you!

4. Find Support and Encouragement

You’ll be amazed at the things you can accomplish when you have someone who believes in what you’re doing. Having a support system around you or hearing a few words of encouragement can lift your spirits when you’re down.

With everything going on around you, it can get overwhelming, frustrating and even lonely at times. A coach will be right there with you the whole time, helping you take that next step towards success.

Of course, the point is to get to a place where you have all the tools in your toolbox to handle what life throws at you. But until you’re ready, the encouragement you get from a coach might be just the thing you need to do your great work.

5. Identify Strengths and Weaknesses

t’s easy to think that we know ourselves really well, and understand our likes and dislikes. But when it comes to bringing out the hidden talents and deep desires, you’ll likely surprise yourself.

It often takes an outside perspective of someone who knows you really well, to tell it like it is. A coach can identify patterns, and help you exploit your strengths while bolstering your weaknesses.

6. Gain More Confidence

You’ll never truly know what you’re capable of until you have someone who pushes you outside your comfort zone. After working with my own business coach for over a year, I’ve been able to build up a lot more confidence in my own ideas, thought process and even the way I approach my business.

If you’re like me, you know you have greatness within you but you aren’t always sure if it’s a good idea, or something that will get you rejected. It’s hard to convince yourself that you have the ability to accomplish your business goals, and that’s where having a coach is key.

They can help instill the confidence you need to accomplish your big goals, while offering support and guidance for your (sometimes not so great) ideas.

7. Establish Audacious But Realistic Goals

It’s not difficult to set goals and create dreams and I’m sure you already have multiple ideas for your business listed out right now. But will you ever attain them?

With a coach you can! And you better be sure you want to reach a goal because once you mention it, they won’t let you make excuses for not trying. Most times they expect you to reach for the stars, because they can see your potential.

As they challenge you to try new things, they will also strongly encourage you to think bigger, jump higher and really go for what you want.

Audacious goals are the ones that scare us to death, but for an experienced coach they know it’s closer within reach than you realize. Then once you reach those crazy goals you’ll feel invincible and your confidence will skyrocket!

8. Prioritize Your (Business) Needs First

As a business owner it’s easy to put your customers, clients and even your family ahead of your own needs. This is especially evident as a solopreneur or freelance who single-handedly keeps the business going.

A business coach will help you prioritize your business in a way that will enable it to be successful, without sacrificing the other parts of your life, including your mental and physical health.

Additionally, you could even work with your coach to seamlessly integrate your work into your life. With the technology available today, you have no excuse not to take care of yourself so you can give the best to your business and those around you.

9. Be Accountable to Someone

What did you accomplish this week? Are you making progress on your goals? These are standard questions at the beginning of each coaching session that will get you sweating if you haven’t put in the work.

A coach is a built-in accountability partner that nudges and reminds you of what you promised to do, and what you’re working towards. It’s all too easy to make promises to ourselves and then break them because we don’t feel like it, or it’s too hard.

When you’re accountable to someone else, you don’t have that luxury. If you really want to accomplish your big goals and take your business to the next level, hiring a business coach is the right step.

10. Harness Your Ideas

The entrepreneurial mind is a beautiful thing, but it comes with it’s fair share of challenges. One of them being the fact that we have so many ideas, we don’t know where to start. On the flip side, you might be clinging to an idea or direction a lot longer than you should. (Beating a dead horse and all.)

Having a coach on your side will help you gain a fresh perspective so you can harness your ideas. They will also allow you to pivot directions if it’s time to move on.

A Coach is the Best Investment for Your Business

Running a business alone is a tough thing, and I would say nearly impossible to do successfully. You generally need the support of friends, family and colleagues. But in my experience a coach is also a must.

It’s like having a best friend who also knows the ins-and-outs of the industry and can share trade secrets with you. They are a valuable resource you can count on and look to when you need guidance or even a friendly ear.

Are you having a hard time closing new leads? Hire a coach to help you revamp your marketing campaign. You two can sit down together and hash out your process. Download a free proposal template and do it together; two minds are better than one.

Hiring a life and business coach has single-handedly taken my business to the next level in Miami . And without that much-needed support, I would probably still be stuck at my day job, hating my life.

WHICH IS WHYI NEED YOUR HELP.

EVEN WITH ALL THISFANCY EQUIPMENT, I STILL NEED MY TRUSTYWEATHER VANE TO TELL ME WHICH WAYTHE WIND IS BLOWING.

(GRUNT OF EFFORT) IT IS SUPPOSED TO SPIN FREELY, BUT IT'S STUCK.

HMM.

LET ME TAKE A LOOK.

PAT:SENOR LOPEZ,HOW DOES THE WEATHER VANE WORK? WELL, WHEN IT IS WORKINGPROPERLY, THE ARROW WILL POINTIN THE DIRECTION THE WIND IS COMING FROM.

THIS COMPUTER GETS ALL OF THE INFORMATION FROM THE DIFFERENT INSTRUMENTS AND DISPLAYS IT FOR ME.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY TELLWHAT ALL THOSE NUMBERS MEAN? HEH.

SI, TURNER.

I AM A METEOROLOGIST.

OOH! A METEOR-WHAT? A METEOROLOGIST.

A SCIENTISTWHO STUDIES THE WEATHER.

AND EACH INSTRUMENT TELLS YOU SOMETHINGDIFFERENT? SI.

LET ME SHOW YOU.

THE THERMOMETER SHOWS US THE TEMPERATURE.

THE HYGROMETER TELLS US HOW MUCH WATER IS IN THE AIR, SO WE CAN TELL IF IT'S GOING TO RAIN.

PAT: AND THIS ONE TELLS THE TIME, RIGHT? NO, PAT.

THE BAROMETERLOOKS LIKE A CLOCK, BUT IT DOESN'T TELL TIME.

IT TELLS US ABOUT CHANGES IN THE AIR THAT CAN CAUSE UNA TORMENTA -A STORM.

AND THE ANEMOMETER TELLS US HOW FAST THE WIND IS BLOWING.

HAY VIENTO!HAY VIENTO! SI, IT'S WINDY! THAT'S A SIGN THAT A STORMMAY BE ON ITS WAY.

THOSE CLOUDS LOOK VERY DARK,TOO.

SENOR LOPEZ:AND THAT'S ANOTHER SIGNOF UNA TORMENTA.

SO A STORM IS COMING? PERHAPS.

I WON'T BE ABLE TO TELL UNLESS I KNOW WHICH WAYTHE WIND IS BLOWING.

THAT'S HOW I'LL KNOWIF THE STORM IS MOVING TOWARD US.

AND YOU NEED THE WEATHER VANEFOR THAT.

WELL, IT LOOKS LIKETHE METAL POST IS BENT AND RUSTED; THAT'S WHY THE ARROWIS STUCK.

CAN YOU FIX IT, MANNY? NO HAY PROBLEMA.

TURNER AND FELIPECAN TAKE THE ARROW OFF, AND THEN SQUEEZE AND RUSTYCAN STRAIGHTEN THE POST.

RUSTY! WHERE ARE YOU? UNGH! ESPERA UN MINUTO.

LET'S THINK THIS THROUGH.

RUSTY WAS SCAREDOF EL TRUENO - THE THUNDER.

SO HE'S PROBABLY HIDING.

BUT THERE'S NO PLACETO HIDE UP HERE.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

LET'S CHECK THE TRUCK.

(THUNDER RUMBLES) (TAPPING ON GLASS) HI, GUYS.

RUSTY.

WELL, IT'S SAFER IN HERE.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.

WE CAN'T FIX THE WEATHER VANEWITHOUT YOU.

THE WIND IS BLOWING,THERE ARE DARK CLOUDS.

THAT MEANS A STORMIS COMING.

SENOR LOPEZ SAID SO! THOSE ARE SIGNSTHAT UNA TORMENTA MAY BE COMING,RUSTY.

YEAH, BUT I'LL JUST WAIT HEREUNTIL WE KNOW FOR SURE.

PAT:MAYBE MR.

LOPART WAS RIGHT.

MAYBE THE STORMWON'T EVEN COME HERE.

I COULD TELL FOR SURE IF MY WEATHER VANEWERE WORKING.

Miami Business Coach

Business Coaching

In old days, there were no life coaches. In fact, business owners in Miami were forced to focus on the profit and the things which were required to run a business. Buy nowadays that scenario is changed and now business owners are focusing on return on investments, profits, customer value, and other goals. There are plenty of ways a business owner can improve their business but for the small or long-term success of the business, it required to get some feedback and consultation or coaching from the industry persons. By attending Business Coaching sessions, business owners can improve their business a lot. Below are the 3 ways through which business coaching can improve and deliver results in order to improve the business in a short term in Miami  .

Miami Life Coach: Small Steps Can Lead To Success

If you've found this article from a Google search, I assume that you are already familiar with what a life coach is. Even if you are, reading my article "What is a Life Coach" will provide you with valuable information on what exactly a life coach does, how coaching contracts work, what typical coaching formats look like and how you might want to focus your business as you consider becoming a coach.

This article is geared towards the logistics on what you can do to become a life coach and start your own business.

What Credentials do I Need?

At the risk of turning people off to life coaching in this article, I am going to give you the facts about people that are calling themselves coaches. Truth be told - there are NO job requirements to become a coach. Sounds scary huh? Put a sign up, print some business cards, call yourself a life coach and you are good to go. Pretty easy business to build eh?

Lets take a bit of a closer look here. What I am really saying is that by law, no professional certification is required for someone to call him or herself a life coach - or coach (often the word 'life' is either omitted or replaced with a different word such as 'executive', 'wellness', 'lifestyle management' or 'business'). So unlike a psychologist, a physical therapist, registered dietician, a contractor, or a lawyer, the state and country (USA) does not recognize a life coach as a credentialed profession. Therefore, no license is required to call yourself a coach (at least as of the date this article is posted).

Lets look at some other examples of similar professions that might fall into the same category. How about that big one of 'consultant'. There are lots of consultants out there consulting on everything you can think of - typically a consultant needs no license to be a consultant, just experience doing so. Similar to a coach, a consultant with no experience at all can draft up a business card and start doing business. Of course the big question is whether or not you'd be able to sell anyone on your services given that background. A computer consultant would probably have trouble selling themselves if they knew nothing about computers!

Before Calling Yourself a Coach...

If you are intending to call yourself a coach, please understand what it means to give yourself that title. Without government regulations, I admit you can stake your claim at coachhood with relative ease, however its a discredit to the professionals with years of experience and training if you simply use the word as an allure for clients and in any way you are misrepresenting what the coaching profession is all about. I'd suggest reading a coaches code of ethics to see if what you are offering could truly be considered coaching.

One problem that I see is that many people who are misrepresenting the profession do not even recognize what it means to be a coach. I've seen MLM (multi-level marketing) companies give their marketers buttons to put on their shirt stating 'Wellness Coach' - when all they know is a couple of herbal supplements that the company sells. I've seen Real Estate Agents call themselves 'Real Estate Coaches' because they wanted to differentiate themselves from the crowd of agents. Clearly these people are marketing themselves as coaches with little understanding of what a coach really does. If you've read this far it shows you've got a true interest in becoming an ethical coach and I've no doubt that you are doing your homework!

What Background do I need?

This is an interesting question. Coaches come from all backgrounds. As previously mentioned there are coaches in the health and wellness world, in the executive development world, relationship coaches, coaches for families with children that have special needs, stress management coaches - the list goes on and on. Of course there are many coaches that cross pollinate and have several areas they focus on.

If you choose to focus your coaching on a specific area - lets say 'parenting troubled teens', then its a good idea that you've got a background of working with troubled teens so that you can best understand your client. Now a pure life coach is committed to recognizing that a client has their own answers and that the coaches job is to empower the client such that they see this clearly for themselves. Therefore, a coach is a generalist - their training and skill is really in communicating with people such that they can identify and build appropriate goals and actions that fulfill their dreams. If you naturally have this skill, you've got the greatest asset that a life coach needs. Some people have an innate tendency to 'be coach'. If you don't naturally have this skill, rest assured that wish practice you can develop it.

What Education if any Should I Get?

If you are considering becoming a coach, I definitely recommend that you get training. A coach training program often has coaching and mentorship not only on how to be a better coach, but also on how to build your business. Whether or not you choose to go through a full coach training certification program is a big decision as it will typically involve a commitment of 1-3 years, up to $15,000, and will require that you obtain between one and two hundred client hours to become certified. Prices, times to certification, and program depth and intensity vary greatly dependent on the program you choose.

Typically after an introductory class, you are encouraged to begin enrolling coaching clients. Therefore, you can charge what you are comfortable charging while you are going through the certification process (remember, you don't need a license to be a coach). I wish I knew the percentage of professional's out there calling themselves 'coaches' that have gone through a certification program. I am sure that someone's put an estimate out there but I've yet to find it. My suspicion is that it is less than 1/3 of all coaches. So being a 'certified' coach differentiates you for sure, however at the moment a typical coaching client probably would not know the difference.

If you elected not to become certified, my recommendation would be that you take some introductory courses, become familiar and comfortable with what coaching is, then try your hand on clients willing to work with you. If these classes are too expensive, read through this whole blog, read as many books as you can find on coaching and develop a toolset which you can stake claim to and comfortably use to team with clients to promote their advancement and self discovery. Make yourself an expert coach based on the knowledge of what a coach is and what they do.

I remember having a conversation with one woman that a friend referred to me. She wanted to change careers, she was very interested in life coaching and she felt she had been coaching friends and co-workers for years. She did have a good understanding of what life coaching was. Furthermore she said she new a number of people that would be willing to pay her for coaching! As I coached her, all she needed to hear was herself confirming that it was OK to get started - even if she had doubts and worries as to what a formal coaching session would look like. She had a fantastic motivation to learn regardless of whether or not that would be in the framework of a credential program (and I don't know if she elected to enroll in one).

What is the ICF

The ICF (International Coach Federation) is the leading coach credentialing agency on the market. Many coaches have opted to become a member of the ICF (by paying an annual fee to be a member), but this is certainly not a requirement to be a coach. The ICF is strongly supportive of coaching becoming a licensed field - similar as to what you see with psychologists etc. Clearly they have incentive as they would be the leading credentialing agency and this would greatly increase their membership. Many coaches believe that this will come to fruition in the next 5-10 years. At that point in time its likely we'd see a large decrease in the number of people calling themselves coaches as well as an increase in the credibility and the stature of the industry.

I present this because if you did elect to go through a coach training program, the ICF provides a list of programs that are accredited. By training through one of these accredited programs, it is expected that your certification would be grandfathered into the status of a certified coach should a license become required. This might be one thing to consider as you contemplate what level of training and education you would like to participate in as well as who provides that training.

In Summary

To summarize, if you've been considering becoming a professional coach (life coach), its important to educate yourself on what a coach is and is not. There is a lot of information on the internet available (much on this site) that can provide you with a foundation for understanding coaching models and how to 'be coach'.

Legally, at this point in time, there are no requirements to obtain a certification or license for someone to begin calling themselves a coach (in that regards, it's similar to consulting). If you would like to begin coaching on a specific topic, its great to have a background on that topic but make sure that you know why you are differentiating what you are doing as coaching rather than consulting.

Educationally there are many coach training programs available. I suggest that you attend at least some coaching courses (or hire your own coach) such that you begin to understand how coaching works. If you do elect to go with a coach training program, a good thing to consider would be whether or not is is recognized by the International Coach Federation such that you will not to become re-certified in the future should this become an industry requirement.

I hope this answers your first set of questions on how to become a life coach - I am sure it will lead to more questions. I'll provide more coaching tips, tools and suggestions throughout the course of the year on this website- so visit often. Till then...

I Need A Life Coach Online

Crazy Barber AROD23PR Must Watch Compilation & Bloopers

It seems that everyone I meet these days wants to be a life coach. “My passion is to help people find their passion.” “My purpose is to help people find their purpose.” I hear this at many of the personal development retreats and career workshops I attend.

This is a noble and beautiful goal; to dedicate your life to empowering others to reach their full potential. In a world where 70% of Americans are disengaged with their jobs, and millions of people are depressed, unfulfilled, or addicted to prescription pain medication, we certainly need more coaches, enablers, and givers.

In 2012, the International Coach Federation (ICF) reported that life coaching is a $2 billion a year industry. Since there is wide disagreement on the value of professional coaching certification programs and many coaches don’t pursue formal training, this number is probably higher.

The problem I have with life coaches is not their lack of certification or qualifications. I have many friends who lack formal training, yet are excellent coaches. Furthermore, I’m not sure anyone can be certified in something as broad as “life coaching,” whether it’s a 2-week, 2-month, or 2-year program.

The problem I have with some life coaches is that they sell their life, disguised as a coaching product. Perhaps a result of the growing popularity of the lifestyle design industry, these life coaches spend more time trying to live and sell a lifestyle that suits them, rather than investing in the service they are allegedly providing to others.

I see a lot of life coaches post photos on Instagram of themselves on the beach or at yoga retreats with captions like, “Live life full! Be free! #lovemylife” These pictures are in places like Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Bali — often at all-inclusive resorts or very pristine beaches. Usually the coaches are incredibly attractive people with tan skin who seemingly spend a lot of time at the gym or do yoga all the time (as in, like, every second of every day).

We should all strive to live a beautiful life (whatever that means for each of us), I’m just not sure the point is to sell that life. Depicting an idealized life that others should aspire to is dangerous. It misleads clients into thinking that their goal should be to emulate and idolize their all-knowing coach. It also misleads other coaches into adopting deceiving marketing practices and making false promises.

Here’s the thing: you don’t need to have a pristine life to be a coach. Coaching is about inquiry, asking the right questions, listening, empathy, and empowering someone to become their best self. I know many talented coaches whose life doesn’t look that great on social media — some of these coaches aren’t even on social media at all! They make a living because their clients recommend their services. They are talented coaches because they know how to coach, not because their life is perfect or they know how to run an auto drip campaign on MailChimp.

I don’t do much 1-on-1 coaching, because personally, given my background and lack of coaching training, I think I can provide more value writing, speaking, and doing workshops, but when someone approaches me about hiring me as their career coach, I ask them why they want to work with me. If they say anything close to “your life is awesome, I want your life,” I don’t respond to their email. Don’t get me wrong, my name is Smiley — I love my life. But it’s my life. It’s not intended to be someone else’s.

Trust me, my life isn’t for you. I have five roommates. My kitchen has a mice problem. My sink is constantly full of dishes. There are fruit flies everywhere. My bedroom is so small it barely fits my bed. I bring tea bags with me wherever I go to save the $3 (that adds up to like $60 a month!). I can’t for the life of me find a moisturizing cream that keeps my hands moist — I’ve tried like seven different kinds. I can’t drink coffee or alcohol anymore since I have really bad acid reflux. I love to do yoga but I fart a lot when I do it, so I can’t go to class more than once a week. My back is already starting to hurt — and I’m only 31!

These are the kinds of things I spend my time thinking about — it’s just not Instagram life coach worthy material. I can’t post a picture of me wallowing in back pain with the caption, “Love my life! #lifeisamazing. Sign up for my 3-step plan to fulfillment now — it’s only $495 — ahhhhh, my back!”

I refuse to sell some notion that my life is ideal or perfect — it’s inauthentic and it’s bullshit. I see some life coaches prancing around the beach and I’m like, “#Livefree?! You just quit your job! I know your ass is broke! Ahhhhh, my back!”

All of us (myself included) are sharing our highlight reels on social media, but I am immediately turned off by life coaches who make life seem easy or perfect in order to sell their product. These coaches give a bad reputation to talented coaches who have a tangible and valuable service to offer.

The coaches I know who make a living from coaching, don’t spend their days at the beach. They are on video calls with clients, working with executives and senior managers in office buildings, meeting with students at universities, and running trainings at leadership development programs. They don’t work 4 hours a week. They work 40 or 50 hours a week, sometimes more. Their life isn’t perfect (no ones life is perfect), but they are still a great coach.

When we depict an idealized life others should aspire to, we ignore the fact that most people’s lives are actually really complicated and nuanced. Most of the time, when people are “in flow,” “coming alive,” or “living with purpose,” they are not at the beach or sipping a green smoothie or doing endless yoga or traveling in a foreign country, they are studying in a dimly-lit library at 1 in the morning, sweating in a noisy warehouse, or a managing a classroom full of restless children. Or, they are cooking dinner for their family.

The goal of coaching (and personal development work in general) should not be to get people to ignore these day-to-day rituals, but to find more personal meaning in all aspects of their life. It’s not about escaping to the beach and posting a photo (#lovemylife!), it’s about finding meaning, purpose, and joy in the day-to-day (and sometimes mundane) rituals that make up our lives.

We need more coaches. More business coaches, relationship coaches, career coaches, leadership coaches, communications coaches, and even more life coaches. But we need coaches who are honest about the services they are able to provide to their clients (and just as authentic about the services they are not qualified to offer).

By all means, design your ideal life and travel to exotic locations—just be conscious of what it is you’re actually selling. I’m all for personal development retreats (even ones on the beach) that offer honest and practical solutions for navigating the complex and nuanced world we live in. I have participated in retreats that are extremely powerful; offering someone permission to be who they are, embrace their fears, overcome roadblocks and barriers, set new intentions, align work with purpose, integrate health and wellness into daily routines, and build a community of like-minded peers.

Life is not easy. There are no 3 simple steps to fulfillment or 10 ways to do anything. Happiness cannot be bought for $495 (or $4,095). There is not one answer and there is no quick fix, so let’s stop selling one.

Life Coach: Small Steps Can Lead To Success

Setting Goals:

Being a visionary is required in a business and without vision, it is hard to survive in the industry. Business Coaching is a way through which business owners can learn to create a vision for a company. By creating a vision statement, employees, shareholders will know the objective and the direction of the business. Thus it’ll ultimately help a business to set and achieve goals in time. So, it is the most important thing that a business owner will learn from the coaching sessions.

Accurate Pricing:

Sometimes business owners while deciding the pricing of their products or services and they use different tactics like discounts, free trials etc to attract a group of customers. But such tactics can be bad for their business process as per their vision and mission. By doing so, there may be negative impacts on the breakeven analysis of the business. Here a Business Coach can help a business owner with multiple business tools like Price Discount Calculator, Break Even Calculator etc. Such tools ensure that that the pricing and discount should be in accordance with the industry and the vision of the company.

Team Engagement and High Productivity:

High productivity in any business can be achieved only when it’s employees will be engaged with each other. There should not be any loopholes in the work process and communication. Sometimes it takes too much effort to deliver high productivity due to lack of the engagement and enthusiasm in the workforce. Business Coach helps business owners to align the employees with the business goals through different engagement processes like Break Down Analysis, Weekly Operation Reviews etc.

To perform all the above-mentioned things is somewhat difficult for a business owner without getting coached by a business coach. Building a business plan, implement it and identifying new business opportunities are the few things which need a assistance from a business guru so that he can recommend necessary changes to make it more efficient. So if you find yourself or know anyone who is in a need of Business Coach in Oklahoma then do let me know in comments.

Miami Life Coach: Small Steps Can Lead To Success

Life coaching or mentoring is a booming industry and it is one which we associate with this last decade. Before then these titles were not ones which were bandied about as part of everyday conversation. Rather, we would refer to having a mentor in what would be considered almost exclusive circumstances; you would have a mentor in University or perhaps a mentor at work. Few people would refer to having a mentor in more personal circumstances.

It is good to see the explosion of popularity within this industry. What is more important to you - your business or your personal life? Why would you have a mentor at work and yet no mentor when you are dealing with more personal issues?

In the UK, life coaching and mentoring programs would seem to have caught on just as rapidly as in the USA which is something that I personally find quite interesting. For years now, residents in the USA have been familiar with various forms of counseling and therapy and these are seen as both positive and the norm. In the UK, however, many people secretly shiver at the very thought of needing to see a counselor.

Why has there been this change in attitude in the UK? Why are people more open to life coaching and mentoring than to counseling or various other forms of therapy? The answer I think lies in the way in which these programs are presented. Life coaching and mentoring are promoted as "life enhancement programs" as opposed to counseling or therapy which are thought of more as ways in which to fix something which is wrong; and who wants to think that they have something wrong, especially when it comes to their mind?

The fact is that the way in which something is advertised to us or presented to us can totally change the way in which we perceive it. The color of the advertisement or the shapes or pictures used impact upon us greatly. The simple act of altering one word in an advertisement can have the effect of changing a sales ratio by 80%. That may seem outrageous to you, but it is true; it is fact. I think that the use of a different title lies at the heart of why life coaching and mentoring is found to be more popular and acceptable than various other forms of "therapy".

When you look deeper than just the titles, one can see that a therapist's job (irrespective of their "title"), is to help their client to adjust their thinking and behavior to enable them to best achieve their goals. The client on the other hand will tend to seek out the therapist/therapy/life coach/mentor who has been presented to them as the most appealing, be that on the basis of something which they have read or seen on TV, heard on the radio or had recommended to them by a friend.

What is very clear is that there are many of us who feel in need of help or guidance. As children we learnt many things by being shown or copying. We are good at learning in this way; we are accustomed to it. And so perhaps a further appeal of the words "mentor" or "life coach" is that we are in fact looking for someone else to tell us what to do, instead of looking for a way in which to work things out for ourselves. In reality however, it is you who is living your life, and the best way in which to really learn and grow is to find things out for yourself.

Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that we do not need guidance. Guidance is a great asset. But no therapist/mentor/life coach can "do it" for you; they can only ever guide you, no matter what their title is.

I'm going to recommend something here which I think is a great place in which to start. But first I want you to know that my opinion is completely biased - I am a hypnotherapist and I do sell hypnosis mp3 downloads. So, I'm recommending hypnosis downloads as one of the best forms of life coach or mentor which you can find.

I am really passionate about what hypnosis can do to change your life. Not only that, hypnosis downloads are available instantly, and they are inexpensive. Even if you feel you want to seek a 1 to 1 appointment with somebody, a hypnosis download is a great place to begin and to open your mind to possibilities before you start searching to find the right "therapist" or coach.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation which allows you to take a step back and see things more clearly. In hypnosis you have easy access to your subconscious mind which is the part where instinctive patterns of thought and behavior are stored; hypnosis therefore makes it easier to change these types of deep rooted patterns which may have been holding you back. With hypnosis not only can you find it easy to stop doing the things which you no longer want to do, you can sow the seeds for successful strategies in an environment which will nurture them and allow them to grow more quickly and with more strength.

Hypnosis downloads are a very powerful and effective life coach. I just hope that I have presented this option to you in a way which you find to be appealing.

P.S. You can grab a free hypnotherapy download from my website and see how effective this form of life coaching is.

Business Coach helps business owners to align the employees with the business goals through different engagement processes like Break Down Analysis, Weekly Operation Reviews etc.

To perform all the above-mentioned things is somewhat difficult for a business owner without getting coached by a business coach. Building a business plan, implement it and identifying new business opportunities are the few things which need a assistance from a business guru so that he can recommend necessary changes to make it more efficient.
