Are You Struggling at Welcoming New Challenges in Life or even in your relationship?
What ever life change or stressful situation you find yourself in, I can help you navigate a successful outcome. Stuck in a job you hate, looking to change your career, maybe you want to return to school, or maybe you want to evaluate relationships in your life? All of these are situations that can tend to drag us down in life. Coaching can help you focus.
A recent study by Forbes outlined having the support of a good coach ensures sustained commitment. In fact, this study illustrated, “A good coach can add that extra edge in order to move forward to make the changes they want in life.” This is true in both career search and relationship search.
With the many challenges in life, there is no one way to approach an individual crisis. Collectively we all face existential threats in life, but individually people experience these threats differently. Some people run and hide, some people reach out for support, some people even refuse to acknowledge the issue, but in all these situations, a life change needs to happen!
Stress and Relationship Problems
Stress and relationship problems are siblings of the same planet. All changes in life, whether positive or negative, cause stress. Individual stress can bleed onto your partner and set a negative tone for the relationship.
A couple’s stress is generally due to lack of communication, not having clearly defined goals, the inability to be heard, and the inability to deescalate anger and aggression.
Many of the stressors are inherited belief patterns that are typically being carried over from either another relationship or some form of baggage from your parents.
You have the power to grasp anything you want, yet you are just stagnant at this moment. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s just a temporary thing. In any case, you could be limiting your career success. Good new is a good coach help you identify and focus on what’s important, which accelerates your success.
Marilyn Atkinson, the founder of the Erickson Coaching International, states: “All things happen first in mind, then in reality.” Wow … What a concept!
Some changes in life are welcome: a new job, a change in career, a return to school. Life changing goals invigorate us and give us the opportunity to learn and grow. It doesn’t mean we don’t get scared or overwhelmed. Some changes in life are not welcome: divorce, illness or even death of a loved one; or a debilitating illness of our own that requires major life changes. Wherever you find yourself, I want to assist you in developing the coping skills needed to be successful in the next phase of your life.
