Life coaching by Jacksonville’s Project SOS is designed to help you make the most of your days by guiding you through issues like identifying a life purpose, overcoming obstacles, aligning values and actions and maintaining a positive mind-set even in the midst of trouble. Your sessions will be with one of our three top-notch coaches certified by the American School of Professional Life Coaching.
But the best life coach in the world can’t help a client who doesn’t help himself. It’s a two-way game that you can win if you’re prepared, committed and an active participant throughout the entire process. Project SOS offers five fail-proof tips for making the most of your life coaching sessions:
- Prepare on paper: Before your first session, write down all thoughts, feelings, fears and goals you want to address in your life coaching appointments. This will help both you and your coach get a clear picture of your current situation and your desired outcome. Keep a journal throughout all of your sessions to help keep your progress on track.
- Mind your mindset: Arrive at your coaching sessions ready to work. Take time in the hours before your session to relax, clear your head and focus on what you hope to accomplish in your session. Take care to clear your schedule that day. One appointment that runs over its allotted time can cut into your preparation or session time or cause you to rush, arriving at your session stressed out, exhausted and unable to focus.
- Be honest and open: Life coaching often is about peeling away the layers, so to speak, of all that’s keeping you from reaching your life goals. More times than not, those layers are internal, which means that it’s your own perceptions and choices that are holding you back. The kind of self-reflection it takes to admit and effectively address those hindrances can be tough, but it’s critical to your success. Remember that your coach is there not to judge you, but to guide you. Don’t be afraid to be honest and open with him or her.
- Own your coaching: The best football coach in the league is only as good as his players are willing to play. The same goes for your life coaching sessions. Your coach can offer fail-proof advice, but you must follow it. If you’re given a homework assignment, complete it. Be an active participant during and after your sessions. Only you can assure your success.
