Going through life you’ll learn that there’s different stages and each stage teaches you something new. The unfortunate part is that there will be lessons you’ll wish you had learned at an earlier stage. Doing so would have helped you make wiser decisions than you had and to achieve more in the process. The following quotes on life coaching may help you understand how it may help you in life.
The purpose of life coaching is to bridge the education gap as you work towards your life’s goals. Life coaching can start at any stage. There’s life coaching for teens and young adults; in some cases even life coaching for kids. It’s a process everyone must go through in order to realize their full potential in life.
In this post we’re going to analyze some life coaching quotes to think about as you pursue your life’s ambitions. Until you get some coaching you may never understand how valuable the process is.
Take time to read these 10 life coaching quotes on your life’s journey:
1. “Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It’s something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success.” ~ Vince Lombardi
Most people don’t quite understand how powerful they are as human beings to achieve great things in life. It’s easy to use excuses to not go after what you desire and were created to do in this life. You mustn’t sell yourself short because a made up mind cannot be stopped from achieving its objective.
Circumstances somehow change if you’re single minded and become favorable to help you achieve your goals. If you don’t believe that’s possible try to challenge yourself to do more than you normally do. You’ll quickly realize that you’re capable of doing more than you have been letting on.
The life coaching process can help you realize this dynamic so you see yourself in a different light. If you think about it your ability and capacity don’t change. Something inside needs to click for that potential to come out in its fullest.
2. “We cannot claim a spot on God’s team, or claim Him as our coach, if we are not willing to play by His rules.” ~ TC Stallings
Having a coach is much like how we ought to have a great relationship with our Heavenly Father. The reason why there are certain rules in place is so that you primarily achieve your objectives.
Some people wonder and ask themselves, “does life coaching work?” and the answer is yes. It works if you do what you’re supposed to do, that is, trusting your coach.
Most of the time people get life coaching when they’re in a bad space and looking to get into a better situation. What I’ve learned over time is that in difficult times you must have faith in God and others He has put in your life. That’s a crucial ingredient for you to see your dream become a reality.
3. “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” ~ John C. Maxwell
Personal life coaching helps you narrow down on the key tasks you must do on a daily basis. As the quote above illustrates that’s what creates your results at the end of the day. It’s good to be motivated and positive but if your habits aren’t aligned with what you’re aspiring to its pointless.
Of all the life quotes this is the one that stands out for me when it comes to coaching. A coach’s role becomes significant in helping you do what you’re supposed to do.
Even when you look at the top professionals you’ll realize that they have coaches too. Life throws us a number of distractions so what a coach does is help you stay focused on the important things. When you’re consistently focused on doing the right tasks you’ll get positive results over time.
4. “I have only one understanding of development and of making success, and that’s by going step by step.” ~ Jurgen Klopp
Success is a combination of art and science from what I’ve experienced and studying other successful people. Most of what people see is the artistry and they miss the step by step part of the process which varies with each field. Whatever the field there’s a scientific process that everyone has to go through and that is step by step.
Recognize where you are at the present moment and where you want to go. Knowing those two parameters gives you an understanding of the steps that will be required to get there. Defining those steps is made easier when you get life coaching and cuts down your time frames to execute them.
It’s also good to remember to strike a balance between the artistry and the scientific part of it. The artistic side of it is what makes it fun or entertaining.
5. “Your attitude is like the aroma of your heart. If your attitude stinks, it means your heart’s not right.” ~ Alex Kendrick
Attitude more than anything influences how you respond to or approach life situations. An upbeat and positive attitude opens up opportunities that may not be so obvious at the time. With a positive attitude you tend to attract desirable situations that make it easier to get to where you want.
On the other hand if you’re constantly negative everything around will happen in such a way to validate your negativity. Apart from your ability and skill having the right mental attitude will get you further than a rotten one. It’s not so easy describing why it’s important but one thing for sure is that a positive attitude is more attractive.
The truth is that everyone has problems they face in life and no one wants to entertain negativity on top of that. What’s more powerful is acknowledging the challenges you face but focusing on how to overcome them.
6. “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.” ~ Myles Munroe
Living without purpose is undoubtedly the worst possible feeling you can experience. You being born is reason enough to celebrate your life because you were created for great things.
Why I say this is because God Himself fashioned you in His perfect image. Even before you did anything when you came into the world you were already precious in His sight.
In another sense don’t confuse what you do with your true identity because what you do can change. You are not your job, or hobby or anything else you value greatly. Your value can be expressed in various ways as you go through life. Once you understand that it doesn’t matter if you go through low points because tough times don’t last.
7. “There’s always the motivation of wanting to win. Everybody has that. But a champion needs, in his attitude, a motivation above and beyond winning.” ~ Pat Riley
Winning for the sake of winning is an empty ambition. There has to be something more meaningful about your life’s pursuits than just the end result or trophy. Everyone has the same purpose – to use their gifts to improve the lives of others. It’s only the expression of that purpose that differs from one person to another.
The purpose of life coaching is to help you get clarity on what that motivation beyond winning might be. The greatest fulfillment comes from knowing that your contribution to other people made their lives better in some way. Over time you forget the personal accolades you won but you never forget the lives you were able to touch.
8. “Don’t rush past divine interruptions- when you think things are falling apart, they’re really falling into a place.” ~ Tom Mullins
I’m sure life has thrown you a number of curve balls from time to time, and it’s normal. In times like these is when you need to have faith that things are going to be fine. When you’re weak is when you have a great opportunity to let God be strong on your behalf. However, you have to allow God that opportunity because He won’t force it on you.
It’s God’s way I suppose of making you realize that ultimately it doesn’t come down to your ability alone. Your effort to making your dreams a reality is crucial no doubt but God determines the ultimate outcome. When certain things happen that are beyond your control don’t stress yourself but trust the process. You’re on the right track to your ultimate goal.
9. “Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.” ~ John Wooden
The most successful people in the world surround themselves with others smarter than they are. You cannot grow to a level beyond what you already know therefore other people can help you. If you’re running a business for example you need to have specialists in finance, hiring and legal issues to name a few.
John Wooden was not only into basketball coaching but life too as seen from his quotes. A true professional and intelligent man he was.
Your expertise may be limited to a certain aspect of the business but other areas will be better managed by others. If you don’t engage other better qualified people to help you along the way you’ll eventually hit a ceiling. Such people will challenge some of your opinions for the sake of helping you grow; you need to look at the bigger picture and be gracious about it.
10. “Successful people will always tell you that you can do something. It’s the people who have never accomplished anything who will always discourage you from trying to achieve excellent things. ~ Lou Holtz
The company you keep influences the direction of your life whether you know it or not. The people who tell you what you can’t do are usually well meaning though they don’t realize they’re killing you. Words are powerful and if you constantly hear that you can’t do something it’s going to affect you at some point.
The successful ones will encourage you to keep going even if you stumble at certain points. They understand that success is a process and will walk with you as long as you’re willing. To get life coaching for this reason alone is worth it. Most times you already know what you want but a life coach will help accelerate your progress towards the goal.
