Coaching is understanding who we are, what we want from life and what we are willing to do to get it.
Many ask, well I can do that for myself why do I need a coach.
Of course you can do that for yourself. At the end of the day, you are accountable to yourself and only yourself. A coach supports you to be accountable to yourself by being there for check in, a sound board or helping you facilitate a situation in which a change in perspective might help.
I have worked with coaches over the last eight years for my own personal development. The coaches have provided me resources, pushed my limits to make me uncomfortable which created change, they helped me understand what was going on and how to see things from a different light and most of all they made me realize that life is easy and fun so I created my life to be that way.
