Success Articles > There is a Blessing in Becoming a Life Coach


Being a life coach is an awesome blessing! When you are called to be a life called you are called to serve the needs of others in a caring, compassionate, effective and non-judgmental way. As a life coach you are blessed to assist others to successfully cross the bridge of the present and the future. Many individuals know what they want to do, but they are not quite sure how to develop the necessary steps and strategies for success. And that is where the life coach comes in. We help others develop action steps that take them from where they are to where they desire to be.

Have you ever had a moment where you felt a sense of satisfaction in achieving a goal? Would you like to help others feel that awesome feeling as well? Have you sensed a calling that you want to serve the needs of others in the area of helping them live a successful life? Do you have amazing God-given gifts and talents that you want to share with others? If you answered yes to any of those questions. Then life coaching may be the career for you!

Life coaching is one of the most rewarding careers that you can have. It is a wonderful feeling when you have a client come to you ecstatic because they mastered a goal. Imagine this. If you have been called to serve as a life coach, but you haven't taken the necessary steps then all of those people that you have been called to touch are missing out on all of the amazing reasons that they need to work with you.

If you have ever had a time where you have felt stuck then you know how it feels, and you know that what the undesired outcome would have been if you would have stayed stuck. Now that you have been blessed to create change in your life, consider paying it forward and helping to create that same type of change in the life of someone else.

And another great thing about life coaching is that it is not only a career where you can make a difference in the life of someone else, but you can also add additional income to support your family or ministry through coaching, workshops, seminars or creating powerful products.

Like many of your reading this I had been doing life coaching informally for years! I realized that it was one of my natural gifts. I realized that life coaching was something that God was calling me to do! And formal training allowed me to excel personally and professionally! It allowed me to use my life experiences to help others. We never imagine that through our struggles someone else can find strength, but it is true! Whatever you have been through in life can be leverage for the success of others.

That is just one of the reasons that I love being a life coach! Because my battles have equipped others to win their wars! Assisting people to find their victory is one thing that I am truly passionate about. And I love every minute of it. Being a blessing to others is one of the greatest feelings. Living in purpose and then helping others to live in purpose has given me a feeling of inner joy, peace and contentment.

I never knew that during the time I was becoming a statistic due to corporate downsizing that I would be blessed in such an amazing way. I have been empowered and equipped to make a difference in my life, the lives of my family members, my community and the world! When one door shuts another one will open. If a door has shut for you, why not open the door to become a life coach? You too may find your blessing. A blessing that causes the light to shine in your life and the lives of others.
