Put me in coach, I’m ready to play

Why would anyone get life coaching and pay money to help reach their goals? The answer is very simple we can’t see our own shit as well as someone else can and we need to be held accountable. We need the praise and reassurance. We are human beings and as humans we are communal, we need to belong and be excepted. Having a coach is like having a friend that cares, that won’t just tell you what you want to hear but will call you out if need be. We needs coach like influencers in many aspects of life regardless of how many free podcasts, books, or videos are out there. A coach, a mentor a sponsor will hold you to it and help you stick with it.

At work you can be a great employee doing all your duties in your job but your supervisor is the one that hold you accountable and oversees the work but also the one that recognizes your due for a raise, earn a promotion or give you additional days off.

Coaches are people that care about you and want you to be the best you possible, they want you to reach goals and grow to your fullest potential, to excel in all that you do, they want to give you the tools needed to avoid as many struggles and hardships as possible, they are the ones you’ll lean on when you’re lost, confused or come to a crossroad in your life.
