Life has its up and downs. There is the stress of work, the hundreds of things that need to be done each day, and those personal challenges that all get in the way of the organization, life, calm, and sense of your normal day.
You need a life coach to help you through your day, to help you organize, to lift you up when life may be getting you down, and to bounce worries off when you just need someone private and personal to talk to.
What a Life Coach Will do For You
A Life Coach will help you organize your life, set goals to make life and work what you really want it to be, and he or she will be there to encourage and support you every step of the way.
We all know how hard it is in our daily lives to accomplish all we want to do. A Life Coach will make certain you do not lose your way.
My Life, and I was Stuck in It
I was a successful business professional, but my family life was in shambles. I wanted to provide for my family, but I also needed a balance in my life that was missing. I was suffering and so was my wife. There had to be a better way.
A friend turned me on to the idea of a Life Coach. The idea that someone could help me organize and balance my life had real appeal, but I was dubious. After doing some research and thinking about life coaching, I decided to give it a try. I was ready to see what life coaching could do for me. I was ready to re-establish my relationships with the people and things I loved in my life, but didn’t seem to have time for.
The Job of the Life Coach
This guy showed up at my office and introduced himself as my Life Coach. He was Don Swift from Don Swift and Associates, Wichita Falls, Texas. He was a very pleasant fellow, unassuming, quiet, and a responsive listener.
As we eased into a conversation, I found out more about life coaching and started to understand what Don could really do for me. Don said, “It is not my job to tell you what to do. It is my job to help you find the answers that best fit your life’s goals.”
Life Coaching with Don was an enlightening and freeing experience. He helped me to begin to organize my goals. I began to see solutions to some of the larger challenges life had thrown at me.
Why do I Think I Needed a Life Coach?
In the beginning, I wasn’t really sure life coaching was for me. After all, as a busy professional and with the crazy pace of my life, change was incredibly difficult. What convinced me was when my young daughter started calling me a “workaholic.” I knew something had to change, no matter how difficult it would be.
Not many of us will admit we are workaholics, but Don Swift helped me to start organizing my life around what was most important to me. His job as my Life Coach was to help me realize my dream of being a better husband and father. Amazingly, even with my 30-odd years of managing, there were things he saw that I could change to make my work and my life more efficient and enjoyable. Basically, Don helped me start living life on my terms.
Over a period of time, Don Swift’s term as my Life Coach came to an end. He did his job, and I have to say, he saved a big part of my life. My family was ready to walk, and he saw it, but I didn’t. I have Don Swift of Don Swift and Associates, Wichita Falls, Texas to thank. Even though I went into the process hesitantly on the recommendation from my friend, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
If your life seems to be spinning out of control, and you’re struggling to define or achieve things that are important to you, then you need Don Swift of Don Swift and Associates, Wichita Falls, Texas to help you, too.
You will be amazed at how Don Swift can help you as your Life Coach. Don’t delay one more day. That one day more could be the end of life as you have known it. No one deserves to travel down that road. Contact Don Swift today to be your Life Coach.
