Successful people and self-help gurus all around the world swear by coaches. Ask any one of them and they’ll tell you that the fastest way to reach success is to hire a coach or find a mentor who can help you achieve your goals. But coaching is really for everyone; we all have blind spots. No matter how smart you are, sometimes you just can’t see yourself. In fact, if you think that you’re stuck in your career, need to figure out your life, or are ready for big changes, then maybe you, too, are ready for personal growth coaching.
While there’s no exact science to it, over the years, experts have determined 5 signs you’re ready to make real progress in their personal growth. If you can identify with 3-4 of these, then there’s a good chance that you’re ready.
You Want to Achieve More but Don’t Know How
You may want more money, a better job, a better career, or more time and energy to spend doing what you love but just can’t seem to figure out how to make it happen. No matter how capable you are or how hard you work, you can’t seem to make any significant progress. If all this is happening to you, a personal growth coach can help turn it around. They’ll help you push through and get what you want.
You Lack Clarity
Do you feel lost or confused? Is it difficult for you to make important decisions? Not sure about the next step? Waiting can last forever. When you lack clarity, you haven’t fully processed a defined purpose for what you’re doing. There’s no focus on a singular intention. It may even feel like you’re throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks. When you lack clarity, each day feels like a struggle. If you’ve come to the point where you no longer know what you want, personal growth coaching is the perfect starting point.
You Doubt Yourself
Sometimes we know what we want but doubt consumes us. When something in life doesn’t work out, someone who has a growth mindset says “What about my behavior created that, and what can I learn from it?” Whereas, someone with a fixed mindset says “See, I knew this would happen.” Did you? What part did you play in creating it?
Self-talk is a habit that keeps you stuck without realizing it. You’re stuck in a constant loop of obligation, expectation, and fear, and end up feeling powerless. A self-growth coach can instill new beliefs of self confidence in you and, through self discovery, help you manifest your vision.
Do you feel burdened, overwhelmed, and stressed? Are you tired of doing everything on your own, without any support? All this stress can be adding to your frustration and distracting you from your goals. Even if you’re working tirelessly, you may still lack focus. Working with a personal growth coach will provide you with much-needed support and a sense of direction that will reduce stress and create the clarity you need.
Procrastination is what happens when the mind is burdened. What are you putting off? Are you delaying tasks, waiting until the deadlines to complete them? If so, let’s chat. We all have limiting beliefs and patterns that stop us from achieving what we aim for and hold us back, hence, we procrastinate. Partnering with a personal growth coach will motivate you to take action and eliminate “buts” and “ifs.” When there’s accountability, things get done.
Summing It Up
If any of the above signs sound like you, it’s time that you enroll in personal and professional growth courses and start working with a coach. It will help you achieve more than you could ever imagine. After all, you only live once.
