4 Easy Steps to Becoming Your Own Life Coach

Step 1: Take the time to honestly assess your own strengths and weaknesses

What do you excel at? What do you want to get better at? To change something about yourself, you must first identify your problem areas so that you can devise a strategy to address them.

So, honestly and openly answer the following powerful questions: What are your top three strengths, according to your friends and family? What are your top three flaws? How are your interpersonal relationships? What are your biggest apprehensions? This information will come in handy later.

Step 2: Determine your objectives

Okay, so you know what you're good at and what you're not. So, what are you going to do with that information? That is, you set goals to improve both your strengths and weaknesses. You want to keep improving at what you're already good at while also addressing areas for improvement.

This is how you do it. Answer the following questions (make a note of them):

  • What do you enjoy doing?
  • What are your areas of special interest?
  • What are some of your pet peeves?

These questions will assist you in exploring and developing your abilities. Once you've determined your answers, use them to help you set goals. According to research, goals that are specific and not too numerous are easier to achieve. As a result, start small.

Assume your goal is to lose weight. How much weight do you want to lose in total? What is a reasonable monthly goal if it is 20 pounds? Expect to lose no more than 10 pounds per month. It is more feasible to lose 1-2 pounds. Note it down:

  • This year, I plan to lose 20 pounds.
  • Every month: I'll drop about 2 pounds.
  • This week, I plan to lose half a pound.

Take note of how these objectives are phrased. Don't say, “I'd like to…” Say, “I will…” It's a crucial psychological distinction.

Step 3: Keep track of your progress

So you've determined your objectives. The following step is to start a journal. Write down your goals and keep track of the actions you take each day to get closer to them. Make one small change every week and work your way up from there. For example, you can abstain from soda for one week. You can eliminate all sugary beverages the following week. A new habit takes between 1 and 6 months to form, so stick with it and it will become a habit before you know it.

Step 4: Evaluate your results and make changes to your strategy

The final step is to evaluate and test your progress every month. Consider what is working for you. What isn't there? What are some alternative approaches I could take? For example, if you are having difficulty progressing and meeting your monthly goals, consider using online behavior change tools such as Stickk, a cool website that allows you to make health commitments and be held accountable for meeting them.

Finally, if there is one thing you must understand about how to be your own life coach, it is that your mindset will determine whether you succeed or fail. Negative thoughts should be silenced, and everything should be framed in the positive (i.e., “I am,” “I will,” or “I can”).

You will succeed if you are completely committed. Inform everyone you know about the behaviors you wish to modify. Not disappointing others is a powerful motivator for sticking to your goals. And don't be afraid to seek assistance, particularly from people in your circle of friends who have been there and done that.

Remember, at the end of the day, you are the only person standing in your way of achieving your goals.
