Why Coaching Works when Reading Doesn't!
Here's a powerful lesson I learned whilst training
to be a coach. It's re-enforced daily in my coaching practice.
With the best will in the world, articles like
those you may read here, really struggle to help people, and it's the
same with even the very best coaching books. The one missing ingredient
is the essential ingredient - interaction with you - by a real
coach. Without that, even if we're desperate to see a way through
- we generally can't - even if it's staring us in the face. Of course,
I would say that, huh? But it really is completely true, and
it's bizarre - why is it true? I've done so much coaching now
that I know precisely why it's true:
- Our life experience teaches us that some
things can't change. That lesson is wrong, but it seems incontrovertibly
true. So pessimism and skepticism are rife but invisible traps which
keep us exactly where we don't want to be. Coaches can undo that
- The life we currently lead defines who we
currently are. It reflects us. It is a product of our limitations.
When you read a self-help article, you bring along those same limitations
to your reading. To change our life, we must remove our limitations.
That involves challenging questions and changes which we cannot
usually originate from within ourselves.
- We often lack the tools and thinking skills
to complete a balanced analysis of any situation. As those familiar
with NLP will know, the human mind, bent by emotion (especially
fear) will distort, omit, and exaggerate our world to fit our self
image. In a real sense we have seriously bad vision. This is crippling
when it comes to sorting out tough problems. Coaches know how this
works and can bring external insights to clarify your view of your
- Society trains us in many ways that don't
serve our happiness. We often develop unhelpful attitudes (for example,
an "entitlement mentality" (the world owes us happiness),
low stamina and fear of change. Coaches know about these and can
compensate for you - keeping you focused, rational, positive and
- Like doctors, coaches aren't fundamentally
better people - but they do have some exceptionally useful training,
techniques and experience which they can bring to the service of
your happiness. I've made this article as good as I can, but my
sincere advice to you is to claim your free
coaching session and see for yourself how magical coaching really
So my advice? Well, you may say I am somewhat biased, but I really
do think that NOTHING works as well as personal coaching, and that works
very well indeed.
