My top 10 reasons
to work with a Confidence and Transition Coach
1. Stuff happens
Stuff happens in life, and it knocks our confidence. We all know there are ups and downs in life. Some say, we need to experience the lows to really appreciate the highs. It is also true that some of our biggest breakthroughs come from breakdowns, yet as women, we often feel like we should be able to figure things out for ourselves and just take care of everything. The truth is it is much easier to come through the tough times with support.
2. create something new
When we are trying to create something new in our career or our life, for the very best results, we need to be and feel at our best. Yet, so often, we are at the bottom of our own list and then we struggle or push to achieve the things we want and get frustrated with our results. Accountability and encouragement for these moments are crucial, otherwise we may just give up all together.
3. Inner glass ceiling
The Inner glass ceiling, for years my focus was on the external glass ceiling. I didn’t realise that I had my own upper limit. Understanding this and the things we do to sabotage our success beyond that limit makes a huge difference to the results we can achieve.
4. create that longer term vision
Studies show that we overestimate what can be achieved in 12 months, we take too much on and wonder why we didn’t achieve everything, then beat ourselves up. Yet we underestimate what can be achieved in 3-10 years. Having someone help us create that longer term vision and continually take the next step is at the heart of our continued growth and progress.
5. setbacks help our success
We might have a terrible relationship with failure, we might make setbacks mean something about who we are. That keeps us in a fixed mindset rather than seeing setbacks as an opportunity to learn and course correct. The most successful people see setbacks as the steppingstones to success.
6. underestimating ourselves
We might underestimate ourselves, our potentials and opportunities. Have you noticed that sometimes people see things in you that you don’t always see in yourself? Having someone hold you to that highest version of you, in a safe container and ignite your potentials is hugely powerful.
7. We can’t become ourselves by ourselves alone
We can’t become ourselves by ourselves alone. My mentor says this all the time, and I agree. There are so many things that I just wouldn’t have done without my coach by my side. My business would not be where it is today or maybe I would still be in my corporate role wondering how I could escape!
8. get where you want to quicker and easier
The right support allows you to get where you want to quicker and easier. The bumps feel smoother, and any setbacks can be worked through and learned from.
9. Safe Space
We all need a safe space to talk through our challenges and share our experiences. Often, there isn’t a platform for us to do that. We don’t want to show any vulnerability at work and the people at home just don’t understand.
10. Reconnect with ourselves
Reconnect with ourselves. I know how it feels to be disconnected from myself. I was so busy thinking about everyone and everything, I lost touch with me. I didn’t really know what I wanted or needed. The relationship we have with ourselves is the most important relationship. We need to become our own best friend. We need to see, think and feel positively about ourselves. Stop trying to be perfect and see the wins, learns and growth opportunities. I needed support to be able to do this.
This article isn’t about me saying, work with me, although of course, I would love you to
The whole point of this is for us to see that support makes all the difference and there are times when we really need it.
Otherwise, we make things much harder for ourselves than they need to be.
The two main reasons most people don’t get the support they need are time and money!
No surprises. I have used both of these as reasons not to do something.
When you are not top of your list, it is no surprise that it is a struggle to invest in yourself.
I have been in a position where I would spend money on my car, a broken boiler anyone else rather than investing in myself! I wasn’t broken, so why would I need it?!
How much of your time do you spend on other people’s agenda?
What would change if you switched a bit of time over to yourself?
Now, I know that the most successful people have coaches.
For me to continually grow, I need to invest in myself and make sure that I am in a growth container, where I am stretched and supported.
If any of this resonates, I would love to talk to you about what support could look like for you.
To your continued success
