Basically then, Life Coaching consists of conversations,
questions, and clarification between two individuals on
an equal standing, without manipulation or coercion,
to guide a client along a path towards his or her unique
God-given purpose. With this understanding, action
steps can be discussed. Discovering God-given purpose
will bring satisfaction and joy, as well as, glory to God.
Partnership and skills of a Life Coach can make the
difference in understanding and focusing on God's daring purposes and finding fulfillment.
Stephen Covey says that "When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen." Partnering with a Life Coach on your journey can be a clarifying and enlightening experience.
Countless people go through their lives without
direction, trying their best to make it in the business
world, be an acceptable member of their family,
neighborhood, and society. Some do this well, others,
not so much. Many of today’s women, beginning as
children, are driven by society and their families to
care for the needs of others to the point of neglecting
and sidetracking their own purpose in life. A person
can spend years searching through self-help literature,
websites, and visiting counselors without ever truly understanding their purpose in life.
A Life Coach is different from a counselor and a
mental health practitioner. From the start, this kind of
coach takes a partnership role in a quest to find and
confirm the unique life purpose of Christians who want
God to be their priority. Most people are very good at
self-sabotaging life dreams. This is partly because of the
inability to recognize how important these dreams really
are. Also a lack of discipline challenges freedom from
self-destructive or self-limiting patterns. Doubt, lack of courage, and difficult life experiences draw many them into habitual patterns of desperation and hopelessness.
