Essential Reasons To Become A Life Coach
Jan 29, 2020

Reading time 4 min.

Everyone has made some bad decisions at some point in their lives. Hence, people usually wish to change for the better. Unfortunately, a lot of folks cannot do this on their own. Despite the fact that they have concerned friends and family who are more than willing to help them out, these people don’t have the training to successfully turn someone’s life around.

In order to create changes that truly make an impact, sometimes, a life coach is needed.

If you are a person with a strong will and the drive to change other people’s lives, there is no reason for you not to consider getting into life coaching. Many people out there need an ally with professional credentials, which will help them take that big leap. There are so many benefits to becoming a life coach, and you will see that this is a good career because, first and foremost, many people need help.

Being a life coach can be such a fulfilling job. Here are the reasons why:

1. Becoming a life coach encourages you to be in charge of your own life.

If you want to be of help to others, your life should be a good example. As a life coach, you will be diving into people’s minds, getting acquainted with their desires, wants, and frustrations. You will be accompanying them in their journey of self-discovery. You will be there as a source of strength, and as someone who will empathize with them and cheer them on through their struggles and victories.

Because of this, you need to have a good grip on your own life. A client will only listen to you if they see you as someone who’s trustworthy, someone who practices what they preach. Institutions such as iNLP Center coach training can help you understand better what it takes to be an effective life coach, and make you realize that in order to be an effective life-changer, you must be in control of your own life, too.

2. You have great listening and communication skills.

You have to be a very good listener if you want to be a life coach. You have to listen profoundly and empathetically to your client. NLP-based listening is a good way to understand clients. You don’t only focus on what’s being said; you also need to observe the client’s body language and get clues from the unspoken. You will also have to listen intensely to their passion, as well as hear out their wants and desires.

A good life coach doesn’t just listen well. They should also be able to communicate well. You will be working with a huge number of people, and it is essential that you are able to adjust your style of communication in accordance with what feels most comfortable to your client.

3. You have extensive knowledge in your niche.

You should have taken an extensive course on your area of expertise before taking on the role of a life coach. For example, if your niche is fitness, you should have proper and deep knowledge and training on physical therapy.

4. You are your own boss.

Life coaching is a business that involves just one person, who is yourself. Unlike other businesses, you don’t have a fleet of employees or secretaries. With that being said, being a life coach allows you to have and follow your own schedule.

You can even work by just using your own computer. There are great software programs out there that would allow you to work with your clients remotely. You can interact with them through email or video chat to get regular updates on their improvement.

5. Life coaching is a flexible and lucrative career.

Life coaching can be a flexible career with a lot of opportunity for growth. You can work from home or be in a contract with an employer. As a private practitioner, you can earn $40 to $60 per hour. As your reputation grows, you can even charge as much as $100 per session. Your improvement as a life coach and your salary is entirely dependent on your patience and willingness to deal with a variety of clients.

6. You serve a higher purpose.

You’re able to serve your life’s purpose when you get into life coaching because you connect with people in a meaningful way. Most jobs don’t give this much satisfaction. Life coaching gives greater meaning to your life in general.

Life coaches tend to experience greater peace and satisfaction because they live in harmony with their values. These values include being of service to others and talking about provocative questions that matter most. Life coaches make a greater contribution to the world by helping their clients reach specific dreams and goals. Being a help to someone is a spiritual responsibility, thus, being a life coach gives you the kind of satisfaction you can’t find anywhere else.

7. Life coaching expands your knowledge beyond the scientific realm.

Life coaching involves not only the physical but also the spiritual realms of chakra systems, energy, and the metaphysical existence. As a life coach, you need to be open to integrating these kinds of esoteric beliefs into your arsenal to provide your clients with a holistic path to healing and change. You will be delving into arcane knowledge to help align the energy systems of your clients, thereby helping them become fully integrated, not just physically but also spiritually. Through this, they can face any of life’s challenges without having to undergo burnout, depression, or fatigue.

Final Thoughts

Becoming a life coach is a fulfilling career, and there are definitely great financial rewards that come with it. You get to meet a lot of people and touch their lives. You get to use your skills for the benefit of others. However, the best part of being a life coach is that you’re able to live a life of service to others, as well as fulfill your own purpose. Being a life coach satisfies you holistically, an experience you can’t obtain from pursuing other career paths.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.
