A Life Coach? For What?

“A Life Coach? For What?”

Many years ago, I was introduced to the concept of life coaching.  I remember thinking to myself, “Why would I need that? I haven’t had a coach thus far. Life is what we make it.” In my perception, I was at the top of my game professionally and I had a great family and a spiritual connection that filled in my gaps.  Life was good.

I could not have been more further from my truth.  My life began to take many turns, many of which were beyond my control…or were they? The life I thought was secure was ripped from under me like a rug is taken from the floor.  I was forced to look closely deep within myself and, at the brink of survival, choose a life of fulfillment or my permanent demise.  I was given a second chance at life; it was time-I needed a life coach.

At the beginning of, what I call, “my resurrection,” my life coach was huge part of my transformation.  At first I was petrified of what would encounter.  However, I began to look forward to our weekly time together.  Years later, I still have my coach…and don’t plan on doing the journey without the guidance that has been an integral part of my existence.  As the Creator of the universe continues to surprise me with a sense of humor, I became the one thing I thought was unimportant-irrelevant.  Now I have the honor to impact the lives of people all over the United States and abroad because, simply put, your life matters.

Don’t get me wrong, not everyone has the same dramatic turning point.  Yet I find that many of my clients may not understand the value of talking with a coach until they come into the office.  Then, it miraculously makes sense.  Honestly, the same thing happened to me and for me.  It is the one time in your week where judgment leaves the room and a place of safety, reflection and positive outcomes all become synergistically apart of the atmosphere.

Have you ever found yourself wanting more out of life? Perhaps you have a business you would like to begin, or maybe you have no idea what you desire…you just have a feeling that there is more to life than where you are? Chances are, you could benefit from a life coach. But what is Life Coaching?

No matter where you are while reading this, know that it begins with YOU.  Whether you obtain the services of Wendi J. Turner and The Heart Initiative or another life coach, the effort and first step has your name on it.

So, what will you do after reading this article? Will you smile and say to yourself, “Perhaps, I’ll do this one day.”?
