Imagine a boxer in the center of a great ring surrounded by a roaring crowd. If you look in this boxer's corner you notice that he doesn't have anyone standing there. Turning your attention to the other boxers corner you notice that he has a coach standing there with water, and a towel shouting directions and encouragements. Which boxer would you place a bet on to win?
A personal life coach stands in your corner and helps you win, helps you accomplish your much deserved success. A life coach will help your balance your life and a life coach will help you remove any barriers that are standing in your way.
Imagine again our boxer. The boxer is training for a fight with a routine personally designed. The routine yields moderate results. The boxer decides to hire a coach. Now this boxer's training routine's results are better and faster then ever before. By hiring a coach our boxer has the support needed to speed towards success.
This is what you can expect from a life coach. A life coach helps you find ways to accomplish your goals better and faster than you expected. Who wouldn't benefit from such a service? There is a reason that all professional athletes have coaches. A life coach will not only help you find a path to your goals, but they offer inspiration along the way.
In order to determine how you can directly benefit from coaching try the following exercise. This exercise was adapted from The Life Coaching Handbook by Curly Martin. Below are some areas of your life that I would like you to consider. You will need a piece of paper and something to write with. For each of the below areas of your life I want you to write where you are not, where you want to be, and an estimate of how many hours in one week that you spend on each area.

Do you know how you are going to get from now to where you want to be? Do you have a plan? Do you do something daily to accomplish your goals and aspirations? A personal coach will help you answer these questions and many more.
As a life coach I stand in peoples corner offering support and encouragement. I wipe off my boxer's head with a towel and offer water to keep them in the game when they falter or feel like they can not continue. I turn the boxer with an empty corner into the boxer that wins the fight.
