What is Mental Coaching?If you're interested in hiring a life coach, then the chances are that you are already accomplished and successful and just need some support to reach the next level. My passion is assisting others to succeed. But coaching is very different from traditional psychotherapy. To become a power performer will require a number of internal ingredients such as willingness, desire, belief and positive expectancy.
This process requires an investment of time and money. Investing in yourself can allow you to gain powerful insights and new skills and see real results faster and easier than you could going it alone.
The first step in the coaching process is getting your mental state aligned with your goals. As your life coach, my primary purpose is to help you to clarify your values and use those cherished values in the achievement of your goals.
Mental Coaching: A Simple, Life-Changing MethodYou might have been led to believe that change is a difficult, long and painful process. If you're like me you might have even made the process of change so involved and complicated that it became one of those things on the "to do" list that never got done. I'm here to show you an easier way. All change involves four simple steps. I call it the S.T.E.M. system:
Set an OutcomeWhat do you desire to achieve? Be as specific as you can be. Focus on what you want rather than what you don't want. Whether the issues you are dealing with are related to health, business, family, academics, or athletics, the first step is always the same. Come up with at least 25 reasons why you MUST change NOW. How will your life be infinitely better when you accomplish what you've set out to do? How will the quality of your life DECLINE if you don't make these changes?
Take ActionKnowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power. Thinking, talking, and writing can be helpful but are no substitute for action. You can take a single MASSIVE action or many smaller, positive action steps to move you toward your goal. You will have the energy, enthusiasm and motivation to follow through because of what you uncovered in step one.
Evaluate Your ResultsIt is important to notice if what you are doing is working. After so much energy, time and money has been invested in a course of action, it is vital to periodically evaluate the results. Are you getting closer or further away from the goal? Does the goal need to be scaled down? Does the timetable need to be revised? Are other resources going to be necessary to bring this goal into fruition? Your coach can give you an objective set of eyes to help answer the questions.
ModifyThe first plan we lay out is not always the key to our success. To get to your ultimate destination may require you to revise your game plan several times. Reaching a plateau is normal but those moments can be useful for regrouping and reevaluating the overall plan. There are always new approaches that can be adopted to get the forward momentum going again. Having someone in your corner who believes in you can be the difference that makes the difference.
