The Purpose of Life Coaching

As we go through life, we typically face many challenges, fears, and setbacks along the way. These difficulties can often lead us astray and result in uncompleted goals and unfulfilled desires.

Getting caught up in these problems can certainly put us on the back foot, which can lead to indecision and riddle us with self-doubt.

When the decisions we make are ineffective, then the results we acquire are sub-par, and life becomes somewhat of a struggle — lived through a state of desperation.

Life coaching is a self-improvement service designed to help us get out of a state of desperation and into a state of inspiration.

When we live in a state of inspiration, every decision we make and action we take supports our greater good and helps us reach our full potential in any field of endeavor.

Life coaching will, for instance, help you to:

  • Develop new skills
  • Capitalize on your strengths
  • Overcome weaknesses
  • Expand your comfort zone
  • Improve your thinking
  • Eliminate limiting beliefs
  • Clarify your goals and priorities
  • Develop empowering habits and rituals
  • Strengthen your core values
  • Improve your ability to learn from mistakes and failure
  • Upgrade your social skills and strengthen your relationships
  • Unlock your life’s purpose

In a nutshell, life coaching is designed to help provide you with the support and guidance you need to excel in any area of your life.

Identifying the Barriers to Effective Life Coaching

Whenever there is any form of communication between two or more people, there are always barriers that will typically hinder the communication process.

In a coach and client (coachee) relationship, these barriers can either be environmental or physical. Environmental barriers might, for instance, include:

  • Visual distractions
  • Strong odors and smells
  • Disruptive sounds
  • Uncomfortable room temperature
  • Physical objects situated within the coaching environment that distract the senses

Each one these environmental barriers can get in the way of useful communication between the coach and coachee. They get in the way because they either cause some form of distraction or lead to feelings of discomfort.
