Support from your loved ones is important, but sometimes things get tricky because others will be supporting you in a way that blends their agenda with yours. Take your mother as an example. Her style of support will be influenced by her needs of you because of your complex relationship. She loves you unconditionally, but she may have needs of her own related to how she wants you to behave or approach challenges.
One of the greatest advantages of hiring a professional coach to support your goals is that your agenda, needs and solutions will be the only focus.
Certified coaches are trained specifically to ensure they don’t prevent you from coming up with your own solution by offering their ideas or suggestions.
Instead coaches use motivational interviewing to foster unearthing your own authentic solution, plan and action steps. Your own solution will always be more realistic and successful because only you intricately know all the influencing factors your lifestyle presents.
