Rich Rewards from Coaching

We’re celebrating!

Glance to the right and you’ll notice an award for Life Coaching Insights. Feedspot adjudged us to be one of the top 100 life coach related blogs internationally (you can click on the award to read more).

In fact, we cracked their top 20, being placed 18th – a great honour indeed.

One of the main criteria for this award was quality and consistency of the content posted.

That got me thinking …

“Men are rich only as they give. He who gives great service gets great rewards.”

Life Coaching Opens Eyes

Life coaching can be described or explained in many ways.

Here’s one description that I coined:

“Life coaching involves a programme of sessions or mini-interventions that help empower individuals to grow and develop rapidly through exposure to tools and techniques that assist them to open their eyes to what really is possible for them to be do and have.”

What I like about this particular description is the reference to the ‘opening of eyes’ that takes place during coaching.

Effective life coaching can bring about dramatically positive changes in the lives of people simply by getting them to see themselves and the world around them from bright and exciting new perspectives.

“The most important thing in life is to stop saying ‘I wish’ and start saying ‘I will’. Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities.”

– Charles Dickens

Your Life Your Choice

You just have to read the papers or listen to the news and you’ll probably agree that it’s one crazy world that we live in!

But what if you made a conscious decision not to tune into the media? How would the world seem to you then?

The point here is that our perceptions of the world around us are heavily influenced and shaped by groups of other people and the norms and standards that these groups choose to promote and apply.

“The world is a complex place, and the influence of the media in its representation and its power of communication and interpretation is a remarkable amplifier of emotions, and of illusions.”

– Tariq Ramadan

Power to the People

Our planet is both a wondrous and downright scary place to be right now.

We humans are naturally predisposed to seek the safety of the status quo rather than embrace change. Yet, just about everything around us is changing and there’s no sign of that letting up.

Whether you take a political, economic or social perspective on things, the world is changing like never before and at a rate that most of us find breathtaking and … quite frankly … bewildering!

It would all be very disheartening if it weren’t for one very encouraging aspect …

Individual people are beginning to wake up to the real power that they have to influence the nature of the world we live in!

The Joy of Serving Others

We certainly live in interesting times!

Confucius would have a very wry smile on his face if he could witness the political, economic and social turmoil of the world we live in today.

This Blog is not an appropriate forum in which to express political views but I have to admit that I find myself shaking my head more and more nowadays as stories of self enrichment, corruption, dishonesty, deception, incompetence and indifference surface from government institutions and those very people who are supposed to have dedicated their careers to serving others.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

The Quality of Your Life and Your Thoughts

The quality of your life is directly proportional to the quality of your thoughts.

That statement is perhaps more profound than you are likely to give it credit at first pass. After all, you’re probably thinking: “We all have tens of thousands of thoughts every day and there’s no way we can control them!”

Or is there?

“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

The Meaning of Freedom

Freedom, Confidence, Growth.

This is the tagline we use at New Insights. Why? Because we believe these are the main personal attributes that our life coach training and our related life coaching programme can impart, build and develop.

But what exactly does it mean to experience personal freedom?

“The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.”

– Saul Alinsky
