How coaching has added value to my life:
Coaching has not only added value to my life, it has changed my life completely. For a long time, I was on the search for something to pour myself into that I was passionate about and I could help others. I searched high and low and the road was long and confusing at times. I had always been fascinated by the mind, personal development and why we do what we do? Through this interest, I found coaching and decided to give it a try it! I didn’t know what to expect when I stepped into my coaching class for the first time. At the time, I remember feeling magnetically drawn to it. As time went on, the more I studied coaching and spoke with other coaches I realised I had found my tribe. It gradually began to dawn on me that coaching was my true passion and purpose in life. Finding what you love to do in life is the best feeling ever. Many humans can go a lifetime without discovering their true purpose or passion. Therefore, I am so grateful to have found it at exactly the right time in my life for me.
Coaching has personally given me life skills that I never had before. Well, I had them in me BUT I had not developed them or given them much thought. Coaching brought that awareness to me and most importantly helped me to value myself and see my true self. Coaching has added so much value to my life that it has enabled me to start my own coaching business and, also to create a holistic wellness event whereby the proceeds raised will go towards a mental health charity to help them to continue the fantastic work they do in our community. I do not write this as a boast but to simply highlight that I did not think this was possible for me before being coached. No one could have convinced me that I could make this happen and that I had that within me. I now know that anything is possible and coaching has given me that.
The three values that bring me closest to my purpose are authenticity, passion and ambition.
Authenticity because I think clients, friends and family deserve to see the real you. I believe every soul is unique and has gifts that were only given to them to bring out in the world. If we deny ourselves the opportunity to be ourselves then we are denying others the gifts that were given to us. Being authentic allows us to see what we are naturally drawn to and in turn can find our purpose.
Passion brings me closer to my purpose because I believe to be truly successful at something you have to love what you do. Passion powers you through the tough times and acts as a confirmation in the good times. Also, I believe that we owe it to ourselves to live our lives with passion and purpose!
Lastly, ambition is my third value. I hesitated about writing this as my third value as “ambition” can be seen as something ruthless or negative. I see it as quite the opposite. Being ambitious is a big part of who I am. Why I cannot answer? but what I can say is that I have the ambition to succeed and help others to live the life they want through the medium of coaching.
A favourite quote of mine is “The mind is a flexible mirror, adjust it to see a better world” – Unknown
