In this day and age, life is so fast paced that we need an edge to keep ahead of the flow. If we truly want to be successful in our career and in our relationships, trying to wing it just doesn’t cut it anymore. We’re bombarded by information, opportunities and new technologies and deciding what’s right for us can quickly become overwhelming. My readers often tell me that they’re having a hard time deciding what to focus on and narrowing their priorities. These are all reasons why you need a coach.
Coaching is one of the best ways to cut the clutter in your life, define your priorities and find happiness and fulfillment. Keep reading to learn the 7 reasons why you need a coach.
1. A coach helps you define your goals and your priorities
One of the biggest challenge my readers face is to decide what to dedicate their time to. Time is the most precious resource we have and the most limited. We all get 168 hours a week and, if we’re spending it on stuff that’s not important, we’re never going to get it back. A coach can help you filter your opportunities, define your values and your aspirations and decide what to dedicate your time to. It can save you lots of heartache, realizing later in life that you spent your most precious resources on meaningless stuff.
2. Coaching will provide accountability and structure
Sometimes, we know what we should be working on, we know what we want from life, but we can’t seem to find the motivation to get to work. A coach will give you deadlines and provide accountability along the way to make sure you are doing the things that moves the needle on your grandest goals. If you know what your goals are but are unsure how to get there, a coach will offer you structure and help you build a plan to achieve your goals.
3. Coaching helps reduce the gap between where you are and where you want to be
Your coach will identify the things that are holding you back and the weaknesses you need to work on to achieve your goals. He or she will offer you actionable advice to reduce the gap and get you where you want to be.
4. Coaching brings you faster results and better resources
If you try to find the tools and solutions to your struggles on your own, you might find that you spend a huge portion of your time researching and that you’ll have to go through trial and error before you find what works and what doesn’t. A good coach will suggest tools and resources tailored to your specific needs and save you time, money, and effort.

5. Coaching takes you out of your comfort zone
A great coach will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and will challenge you to set stretch goals. A stretch goal is a goal that is realistic, yet a bit more challenging. You’ll have to put in some effort to achieve it, but the effort will pay off. Your coach should be helping you push yourself beyond your capacities, so that you can create your best work.
6. Coaching inspires deeper introspection
By asking several questions, a great coach can help you get to know yourself better and discover your true motivation for the work you’re doing. A coach can help you discover your “why”, your life’s mission, but also help you understand the way you act, react and think.
7. Great coaching makes you feel happier
When you work with the right coach, you’ll learn to work in alignment with your “why”, with your values, and achieve the goals that are most important to you. You’ll find fulfillment in your career and in your relationships and you’ll feel happier and more motivated than ever. That is ultimately the goal of every successful coaching.
