This is an excerpt from my newly published book Life Coaching Activities & Powerful Questions

Many times I’m asked, “Just what is a Life Coach?”

Most people understand the role of a coach in sport, be it hockey, rugby, swimming or golf. They however, struggle sometimes with the concept of Coaching and Life.

If we think about it, Life is the biggest game we will ever play. We are all on the team. We are not going to get a second chance to win the trophy. Our contribution that we make depends on us. We have the power and control to be the best Life Player that we can be.

The following is an excerpt from Life Coaching Activities & Powerful Questions

Life Coaching has offered me an opportunity to see and explore the world with a different set of eyes.

“The real act of discovery lies, not in finding new lands, but in seeing with a new set of eyes.” Marcel Proust.

I have come to learn and understand the words of Socrates,

“The enlightenment is not in the answer but in the question.”

Also I have discovered how powerful Questions can be in directing our life.

The process of Life Coaching that I use consists of a set of skills that if understood, practiced and used daily will enhance not only our lives but those whom we interact with at work and in life.

These skills consist of:

Success Strategies
Visioning
Strategic Planning
Self Belief
Communication
Persistence
Perception
Mind Set
Work/Life Balance
Attending/Focus
Personal Strengths
Positive Mental Attitude

Life is not simple nor is it easy. We need knowledge and support along the way to achieve to our full potential.

“Most people know what they want but they don’t know how to achieve it.”
Coach Phyllis
