Professional athletes have them.

CEOs have them.

Even kids have them.

All of the above generally have coaches for their area of specialization in their sport or career.

Why is that?

Because in order to get better at something, you often need a guide to help you get there.

That is where life coaching comes in. Most people have some goal in life they want to achieve. It could be something well-defined like breaking a bad habit. Or it could be a big ambition like to quit their unfulfilling job and start a business related to their passion.

There are some general questions you might want to ask yourself about your life. Take the short quiz below to see how you rate.

Take this quiz. Answer yes or no for each question and give yourself 1 point for each “yes” answer you gave yourself.

  • Is there anything about yourself or your life you would change?
  • Are there some limits you would like to remove from your life?
  • Are there some habits you would like to break?
  • Do you have something that stops you from reaching your full potential, like negative self-talk or procrastination?
  • Do you lack a clear and compelling mission, and purpose for your life?
  • Do you set goals, but not always achieve them?
  • Is your job and career compelling enough that you love Mondays?
  • Do you feel like something is missing from your life?
  • Have you ever worked hard to reach a goal, and then not felt as good as you thought you would, or the good feeling wore off?
  • Do you feel like you could enjoy life more, and don’t feel happy enough of the time?
  • If you scored a 3 or above, chances are your life is working pretty well, and you could benefit from life coaching to refine these successes and take any setbacks on the chin.

    If you scored a 7 or above, you probably have one or more areas of your life that you would like to make improvements in. Working with a life coach can get you moving in the direction of having more of the life you want.
