- A guru to tell us what to do to be happy (self esteem)
- A doctrine to show us what rules to follow to get to Heaven (spiritual meaning)
- The media to tell us what car, house, body-building discipline, food, etc., to buy to find acceptance (self image)
Ultimately, only My Real Self truly knows what is best for me. My point? I need to learn to go within, be still and listen. How can someone from the outside know what is right for me? Well, they don't.
As a ministerial counselor and life coach, my role is to motivate you, hold you accountable, guide you back to your Real Self. A good coach assists you back Home, within and creates the environment in the relationship to help you see you are responsible for your life. You have choices that are right just for you. A life coach holds YOU accountable for what you commit to. A good coach mirrors back to you what you may be running away from and need to deal with.
With a life coach, it's going back to basics. Back to YOU.
Then, if you choose to do so, you go to church, you buy the new car, you get the huge house, but not out of fear of "not being enough", but because YOU consciously choose this because it feels right for you!!
You are self empowered and responsible.
