3 Questions To Ask Before You Find A Life Coach

Beware: Not all life coaches are the same.

The following 3 questions will save you untold frustration, and wasted time, as you find a life coach. You really must ask your potential coach the following.....

Question 1: What is your track record?

Because coaching is becoming so popular, it is causing a glut of inexperience coaches.

While these people are undoubtedly genuine in wanting to help others, most are simply not experienced enough to make a difference to YOUR life.

There is an unfortunate pattern emerging of inexperienced life coaches who are hiring clever marketers to make them sound like the next guru. Please don't fall for their hype and clever ad copy.

Yes, they MAY, be able to help you. But how can you be sure if they haven't got a proven track record?

If you have reached a point where you are serious enough to hire your own life coach, you need to be sure you don't add to your frustration by hiring the wrong person.

Just ensure that they have worked with people you have common interests with - and ensure that you see their testimonials.

It's pretty simple. If they have gotten results, people will be more than happy to provide a brief testimonial. Make sure you see them, and you can judge for yourself.

Question 2: What life experience have you had?

This can be a bit tricky to come straight out and ask, so you may have to read between the lines on this one - but be confident. You are trying to find a life coach and this is serious business.

Put it this way. Who is more likely to help you make a big difference in your life - a person who was born with a silver spoon in their mouth, or a person who has struggled and learned from experience how to change their direction?

Don't be frightened off by a life coach that has tasted defeat. They are among the best.

Give me the coach with the real world experience any day. They have been in the trenches, and have come out the other side intact. They will be more understanding, supportive and empathetic. It's as simple as that.

You can't learn empathy & understanding from a book. You earn it. You live it.

My advice is to just ask them how they got into life coaching, then sit back and listen.

You can bet the ones with the struggle story are the better coaches. Some may argue, but you know it's the truth and so do I.

Question 3: What are your qualifications?

Let's get real here folks. We all know that some qualifications can be "earned" online with almost no credibility.

While I'm not saying all qualifications studied for via the web are useless, I'm just saying be careful. There are just as many lightweight courses offered in more traditional centres. It's just a sign of the incredible demand for life coaches, and the inability of the industry to keep up with the demand.

While it shouldn't give the industry as a whole a bad rap, unfortunately it does. And trying to find a life coach that can actually make a real improvement to your life is becoming harder and harder.

In a nutshell, you need to find a life coach that.....

• Has a proven track record of actually helping people. • Real life experience dealing with their own problems. • Real qualifications.

These 3 simple questions could save you years of frustration. Good luck!
