"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches,
but to reveal to him his own."
 Benjamin Disraeli

Life is a wondrous adventure of constant change. We are all on a journey of growth and self-discovery. Our biggest and greatest teacher is the experience of everyday living with its generous, daily handful of opportunities for progress and expansion. As we travel through time, challenges arise and we might find ourselves wondering what the next step is and how to approach a situation.
The good news is that it is not about what happens in life but how do we choose to perceive the events unfolding in front of our eyes each day and how we decide to respond to them. A similar situation might assist one person in becoming a stronger and a more mature version of themselves, while someone else will take less optimistic and serving approach and become bitter.

“The power to question is the basis of all human progress”
Imira Ghandi

We might forget this occasionally but we are self-determining beings, capable of tuning into and following the heart’s knowing. As Brian Tracy says: “There is something about a well-worded question that often penetrates to the heart of the matter and triggers new ideas and insights.” This is where the magic of the coaching process begins – with a good question!
We were all born into a family, into a certain society and a particular country and we have absorbed many patterns, programs and habits from those entities, as our own. There were certain expectations and projections put on us and as little children, we absorbed it all like sponges. Since that was the way of being we were shown, we passed it on to our children or other significant people in our lives. We have adopted and created many beliefs around who we are, what life is like, what “a good life” means and how we are to live it. Our truly boundless potential and creativity have been limited, boxed and labelled. How about an update of the old convictions system? What if life was meant to be much more than what we were led to believe?

“We all have innate knowledge, we just need to be asked the right question.”

Life coaching can be compared to a vehicle, which helps you get from where you are to where you would like to be. A life coach is not an expert, a teacher or any kind of a “teller”. The clients are not told what to do, how to do it or what to work on. All the answers are already within you. Sometimes all we need is to be held in a space of unconditional positive regard, to sit and relax in a judgment free zone, to be allowed some space to explore and ponder where we are in life, what kind of a person we had decided to be, who would we like to become now, what our dreams are and how to achieve them. Powerful questions create opportunities for powerful insights. New pathways open in our minds and we are able to access the depths of our inner worlds and see solutions where there did not seem to be any. With new awareness gained, we can set goals and design actions through which we will proceed towards achieving our dreams. That is the magic of the coaching process.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
Lao Tzu

A life coach is an asker, an encourager and a supporter. While building a trusting relationship and holding space, they will guide their clients through a maze of internal tangled webs and towards a broadening of the awareness. With your highest good at heart, a coach will hold the torch high to light the pathway and assist you to stay accountable to the desired outcome. However, it is the clients’ courage and willingness to ask for help, to explore, to be open, vulnerable and determined, which ultimately creates change. There is no martyr and no saviour in this relationship. Life coaching process is built on a foundation of undisputed trust, that the client has got all the searched-for answers within. Humans are incredibly creative and resourceful beings. All we need, is to tap into the well of the heart’s knowing.
