Have you ever had nowhere to turn? Your friends and family have full plates. Their shoulders are heavy with burdens, and you don’t want to add to their load. Or maybe you just feel like no one cares enough to listen to what is going on in your life. What do you do? Who do you go to? Who cares about you and pouring into your life?
Have you ever thought about turning to a mentor or life coach?
There are so many benefits of having a trained adult who cares about you pouring into your life. Here are just four ways a mentor or life coach can help you.
It can be difficult to get to where you want to be. Discipline often requires accountability. Mentors and life coaches are there to set goals with you and hold you to them. Having someone checking in on you and making sure you filled out that paperwork, got to that appointment, or went on your walk challenges you to get it done.
Outside of the box, new opportunities
So many organizations, events, programs, classes, and new developments are always on the horizon. As one person, it is nearly impossible to know about every single opportunity. Having a mentor or life coach who is connected to a team, creates a pool of knowledge for you! They put their heads together to search for the best opportunities for you. It is their passion, duty, and desire to get you exactly what you need! They can provide you with options and resources you might not have known about before.
I don’t know about you, but when I am on the struggle bus it helps me to have someone there to cheer me on. If my confidence is killed, I often benefit from someone speaking the truth over me to overcome the negative thoughts I believe to be true. It builds confidence and helps you believe in yourself again.
Emergency intervention vs. long-term transformation
Getting short-term help might be beneficial for a day or two. Possibly a week or month. But what happens once that quick help can no longer provide what you need? It is not a lifelong solution. Long-term stability is what ensures transformation.
Having a life coach or mentor who walks through life with you results in life-altering, long-term transformation. It can be hard work, but it is what results in a better-lived life. Having someone to motivate you, hold you accountable, challenge you, and be there when you fall provides long-term stability rather than a quick fix or help. A consistent listening ear gives you a person to help lighten your mental load. Just saying the words out loud heals wounds. A mentor is a shoulder to lean on. Not just once or twice, but monthly. As long as you need them.
Long-term transformation is like a walk with a friend. The road might be long, windy, and treacherous, but there is no time clock ticking down for you to get back to the flat, breezy, calm straightaway. You will get there. You can do it. And we are here to do it with you.
