Many people are hesitant to try out any form of coaching, and the reasons why can be many. There are many myths that encompass coaching that are simply untrue.
Some may have a perspective that coaching is only for those who are suffering. Others may believe that coaching is identical to counselling or to a psychologist. However, this is not the case. Coaching is not just for those who feel like they are stuck in a place in their lives where they are unhappy. Coaching is also for those who realise that they want to reach their top potential. Those who decide to get a coach can be those who want to bring out the best versions of themselves and have a desire to improve.
Essentially, most coaches have actually undergone some form of coaching, or have a qualification that is relevant to their field of coaching. Furthermore, many coaches have had some form of past experience. This past experience sometimes are the trigger that ultimately made them take the plunge to go into coaching. Some may have interesting stories, some even quitting their main salary job in order to pursue coaching and to bring hope and progress into lives who want it. Many coaches understand what it is like to be at rock bottom and are empathetic to a situation. Others understand what it is like to be at a stage in their life where they realised they wanted more fulfillment and abundance in their lives. Also, coaches usually do not give you advice without permission first, and often only do so if they believe it brings value to the situation.
One of the biggest reasons that I have found that people do not want to get coaching is this belief. They believe that because they have been at this stage in their life for so long, their life cannot shift. Similarly, others may have tried other forms of help such as counselling or a psychologist with little or no result. Because of this, they expect coaching to harbor the same results for them. However, coaching is extremely different from these two forms of help. It has been proven that a majority of those who get business or executive coaching, will at least get the money they spent on the coaching back in profits. Furthermore, as a person who also used to have this belief that coaching will not work, I can say that it does (READ: How I Saved My Relationship and Myself From Years of Insecurity).
