Life coaching is mentoring someone to become the best version of themselves, in order to get from point A to point B, exactly how a sports coach is coaching an athlete to be the best, to win the competition/game. The same applies to career coaching and executive coaching. There are over 50,000 life coaches in the world, but only 1% have what it takes to help others to actually reach their goals, which is: a tremendous amount of life & business experience, skills, knowledge, talent, leadership, professional sports experience, and psychology



Successful people believe that tomorrow will be a fantastic day, they believe that any challenge is meant to teach them something. Successful people know that we, the people, learn when things are tough, not when things are easy, and they use stress and challenges to fuel their momentum, not to kill it. Successful people always see the good in anything, and recognize an opportunity disguised in an apparently bad situation. And lastly, successful people have totally different rituals/habits every day, to help them overcome anything.  


Like in any industry, there is a lot of confusion in the life, career and executive coaching industry as well. Many are doing "research" to find a good life coach that can actually help, but even as we all know that "you get what you pay for", still most are falling for the low fee "overnight" life coaches. Some people are looking for a career change, and they want to become successful life or career coaches, but unfortunately fall for the "certified" online courses where you "successfully graduate as a certified life coach"!!! How can someone really become a good life, career or executive coach? The reality is that there are so many different situations, challenges, and unforeseen complex happenings that no school, let alone on online course, can teach anyone how to help, guide and inspire someone, not just have wishful positive thinking. The reality is that a good life or career coach has to have an extensive life and business experience. Good life coaches will continuously learn and develop their skills in order to better help their clients. A good life or career coach is already successful in his own life and career, in order to be able to guide someone else to do the same. There are over 50,000 life coaches in the world, but only 1% of them have what it takes to actually help others reach their goals. If you've read this, and it made sense to you, then you will definitely save a lot of time and other resources in your search for a good life coach or to become a good life coach.
