“This isn’t working for me...” We’ve probably all said it at some point in our lives.

So where did you take the wrong turn? How did life get to be so complicated and busy? What are you going to do about it?

Sometimes it seems impossible to see your way out of a life you’ve accidentally created. Changing the status quo and having the courage to design your own life is difficult, complicated and can be overwhelming to handle alone.

If you find yourself feeling this way then it’s time to call a life coach!

Here are the top 10 reasons why you need a life coach.

1. You are starting over

The life you imagined and worked so hard to achieve has not gone according to plan. People change, disasters happen, relationships break, choices are made, jobs disappear, children grow up and it’s time to start over.

Having resilience and determination to make the necessary changes and adapt to your new picture is imperative for future happiness.

A life coach can help change your perspective, redefine your short and long term goals, develop a plan of attack and give you the confidence and skills to bring about a successful, fulfilling future.

2. Your relationships aren't working

Are you hanging on to resentment and anger towards your partner? Are you constantly on high alert and overreacting?

Instead of looking at the external environment and seeking drastic change that may have far-reaching implications, a life coach can help to find your true happiness from within and provide you with tools to help actualise your future and thrive in your relationships both personally and professionally.

3. You need more joy in your life

With so many responsibilities and tasks to accomplish each day, we can lose our sense of lightness and enjoyment.

According to Life Coach Noni Boon, life wasn’t meant to be hard and unrewarding. Finding the right life coach can help lighten up, find joy and have fun while finding fulfilment, meaning, and purpose in your life.

4. You are defining insanity

If you’re doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, it might signal a need to get a new perspective. A life coach like five-time Olympian Natalie Cook can show how to unleash your potential and get motivated.

Nat will help you ignite your passion and pinpoint your purpose, to achieve what you’ve always dreamt! Use the same recipe that catapulted Natalie Cook to the top of her game and earned her an Olympic Gold Medal.

5. You need to rediscover your passion

You have a vague idea of what you want for the future but nothing seems to be changing and you don’t know how, or if you will ever get there.

It may be landing a promotion at work, finding a great relationship, turning your passion project into a full-time business or saving enough to visit places you’ve always wanted to see.

If a sense of helplessness starts to set in, a life coach can give you the tools to sharpen the image on your future and help you build confidence by providing the motivation, support and resources you need to dream and succeed.

6. When you are dreaming and not doing

You have a vague idea of what you want for the future but nothing seems to be changing and you don’t know how, or if you will ever get there.

It may be landing a promotion at work, finding a great relationship, turning your passion project into a full-time business or saving enough to visit places you’ve always wanted to see.

If a sense of helplessness starts to set in, a life coach can give you the tools to sharpen the image on your future and help you build confidence by providing the motivation, support and resources you need to dream and succeed.

7. You've lost your self-esteem and confidence

A life coach can help you identify which areas of your life are out of balance, create personal, specific, measurable and attainable goals, manage stress and take responsibility for your happiness

8. You are starting up

The hobby that takes so much of your time and passion has started to show some earning potential. A business coach can work with you to turn passion into a profit by giving you the fundamentals to change and grow your business.

Jack Delosa is a business coach and one of Australia’s most-respected entrepreneurs and founder of Australia’s largest educational institution for entrepreneurs, The Entourage. Jack believes that clarity around who you are and what you do is the key to success.

9. You need to start being brave

Have you lost the confidence to go after what you want? Have life’s bumps and bruises left you feeling incapable of reaching your potential? Does the fear of failure stop you from succeeding? Working with a life coach can help you break the cycle of inaction.

They can assist in identifying your fears, help you realise the impact of letting fear take over, help set achievable goals, make you accountable and work with you to be brave and find the confidence to succeed.

10. When you're overwhelmed to the point of panic

If the constant pressure and stress of life is causing you to feel overwhelmed and out of sync with your life plans, a life coach can get you back on track by giving you strategies for time management and goal setting, and lead you on a journey of self-discovery.
