Statistics show that procrastination is on the rise.
To wit, in 1978, a mere 5% of the population admitted to procrastinating; today that number has soared to over 25%!
Students not included, though. They have always boasted a near 100% procrastination rate, and for a good reason.
Science has recently revealed that putting off tasks has less to do with laziness and everything to do with uncertainty and anxiety.
Those who fear failure the most are most likely to procrastinate.
How convenient for our topic that these revelations came about so timely!
Today, we’re talking with you about life coaching: the benefits thereof and where you could jump on the holistic living bandwagon.
To be sure, we’ll not impress upon you that a life coach will become a drill sergeant, exhorting you to meet deadlines and accumulate achievements.
That’s not the way to retrain your brain to not procrastinate, anyway!
What a life coach does is help you overcome stress and anxiety so that the performance of whatever task or venture need not be put off.
How would you like to be rid of those self-defeating attitudes that insist on you and your accomplishments never being good enough?
Considering the entire world is just hoping for a chance to undermine you, doesn’t it just make sense to believe in yourself and your abilities, thus never giving the world a chance to put you down?
Wouldn’t it be empowering to never fear a negative result?
Come along with Superprof, to discover where and with whom in Birmingham you might start your transformational journey into a motivated, self-assured individual!
Life Coaching for Free
Disclaimer: life coaching does not guarantee you will never again suffer a negative result; it simply means that you will have the psychological tools to manage it and the resulting stress better.
For as valuable as such wellness training could be, it really doesn’t make sense that it would simply be given away...
Innocuous as that thought is, it represents a pattern of thinking common to procrastinators: everything worthwhile has a price tag – generally one too high to pay.
Indeed, life coaching does come with a price tag, just not necessarily a monetary one. Just ask life coaches in Edinburgh!
To commit to life coaching means that you are willing to scale back on or give up:
- negative thoughts, ideas and self-sabotage
- did you know that 40% of the population have experienced financial loss because of such behaviours?
- your comfort zone – possibly a limiting position at work or your circle of friends
- your habits: poor eating, excessive alcohol and other damaging substances, as well as toxic relationships
- Compulsive and/or reinforcing behaviours that limit or destroy opportunity.
By no means are we indicating that to undertake life coaching sessions is to be in therapy; quite the contrary!
Whereas a therapist will take you back to examine events in your past, a life coach will pull you forward, into a world where those limiting obstacles are overcome.
The most important commitment you make is to yourself.
That being the case, it only makes sense to see to your personal growth by seeking out free life coaching, and you might find such masters right there at work!
In fact, many of the more progressive companies have retained life coaches to work with their employees or offer the services of such a professional coach as a part of employees’ benefits packages.
If your shop or concern has not yet done so, you may suggest it!
Having a life coach on staff virtually guarantees that employees will perform better and take fewer sick days, as well as being happier on the job and in life in general.
Should you meet resistance in suggesting such a training program at work, you may decide to undergo life coach training yourself.
Yes, for free!
