How to Love Life
If you think life coaching is all about organizing your lists and increasing output, think again.
Our recent series of coaching sessions with Life Compass was hardly that. The focus was personal transformation and integrating values into our daily life. After a gruelling questionnaire (What do you see as your life purpose? What is your definition of success?) we had our first conversation and were given a challenge: throw away the lists. Well, that particular challenge didn’t work out so well for us, but we did learn a lot. Here is a list (oops) of three things life coaching has helped us change in our lives.
1. We’ve stopped checking Facebook more than three times a day, as it was cutting into the time we spent with REAL friends.
2. We’ve stopped living life for the future. Life Compass Coaching taught us that happiness is about learning to enjoy all the good moments of life, whether it be that amazing trip or simply watching your dog swim in the ocean.
3. We’ve learnt to accept life as it is, even as we strive for change. This was a big challenge, but certainly a worthy one. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
