Can I be real and transparent with y’all for a minute? This week has been a little rough. It has been a struggle to keep my motivation. The weather has turned a little gloomy, which isn’t helping the situation either, but instead of focusing on the negative I am clinging to the positives in my life. If you stop and look for the positive, you will find it. So far this month we have discussed what motivation is, how to create it and how to keep it. We have focused on how we can influence motivation within ourselves, but sometimes we could benefit from the outside perspective and help from a motivational coach.
A motivational coach is not just someone with an outside perspective, but they are a professional, whose job it is to help you clarify your goals, as well as recognize obstacles and the core issues you may encounter as you strive for your goals. They are a sounding board to help you stay on track and hold you accountable to your personal and professional success. After reading through several websites, here are my top 5 benefits to having a motivational coach on your side:
- Accountability – Do you ever find yourself procrastinating certain tasks because there is no deadline or maybe because no one else knows about your personal to-do list? I sometimes struggle to reach my goals when I do not tell someone what I’m working towards.
- Save time and quicker results – Who else wants to work more efficiently? As I have shared in previous posts, patience is not always my strong suit, that coupled with the fact that I am an overachiever, could be a recipe for disaster without proper guidance. A coach can teach you strategies they have gained from their own and others experience in similar situations, to help you achieve results quickly.
- Avoid unnecessary stress – Hello? Have you read my blog? I am all about self-care and reducing/managing your stress. Coaches have several different road maps and can help you avoid unnecessary roadblocks, which can cause excessive stress.
- Boost self-confidence – They can help you recognize self-limiting beliefs and eliminate them. They will believe in you until you and teach you how to believe in yourself. What other people think about you is none of your business.
- Find purpose – A coach can help you find and/or redefine your purpose in life and career. They will ask you the tough questions and aid in self-discovery to pinpoint exactly who you are, what your passions are and how to influence those around you.
