The Gift Of A [Wise] Teacher
There are many tools I use in my personal life to achieve my goals: whether they are financial, business, or creative.
But few have helped me more than actually having a mentor.
Let me explain.
Do you believe that you have more to offer, but struggle to understand how to apply yourself in order to achieve your goals?
Do you find it difficult to believe that you have the ability to fulfill your dreams and live the life that you have always wanted to have?
Many people struggle each and every day with a sense that they will never live up to their full and true potential…
…and unfortunately, many of those individuals will never overcome the personal mental barriers and fears that prevent them from accomplishing their life’s purpose.
But, there is good news for those who are willing to ask for help.
With personal life coaching and personal development training, anyone can achieve their true potential.
They can reach their goals and find that something special within themselves that will make their life feel more complete.
So, what is personal life coaching exactly?
Life coaching is a process for individuals to undertake with the help of a coach, who will have a number of conversations with the individual and provide mentoring…
…and advice based upon what is needed by the client.
During the process, individuals – or even groups – will be asked questions that help them to really examine their lives through a whole new set of eyes…
…and from an unbiased, knowledgeable perspective.
Some questions will be relatively straightforward: are you happy with the way your life is going?
What are you looking to improve in your life – the way you accomplish your work, the amount of and quality of time that you have for your family?
Other questions will require more thoughtful answers.
These questions are designed to help the life development coach see to the obstacles that stand between the client and their ultimate success in realizing their goals.
These questions encourage the life coach’s clients to focus on their fears, their challenges, and on whether or not they are committed to reaching their stated goals.
A coach, or mentor, will challenge you to think differently.
Unlike a therapist, a life coach will not work with his or her client to discover the roots of their problems.
Instead of looking to the past, a life coach will help their client look to the future.
Whether the client desires to work towards owning and operating their own business, accelerating their career, finding balance between work and family…
…or merely looking for a way of identifying what will make them truly happy in their own lives.
It must be noted that the job of the life coach is not to take you from Point A to Point B.
Instead, he or she will help you to learn the mental tools that you will need to reach your destination on your own and to provide encouragement along the way.
I must say, though, that when I choose someone to mentor me, I look at their qualifications.
Is he/she where I want to be later in life?
I have learned to be skeptical. To ask questions. Research.
Now, as I often suggest: choose your teachers wisely.
There are few people in the world who’ve influenced me more than Tony Robbins.
Oprah, maybe. But Tony is a man I highly respect.
This is for people like you and me, those who are serious about making changing in their lives.
Those serious about finding their life’s purpose.
Those who no longer want stress to lead their lives.
You won’t regret it.
In fact, who knows, maybe the next stage in your personal growth, the place where you have your “haha” moment, is just a few words away…
With purpose, passion, and love,
