End of Day 2: Introduction to Life Coaching

My 2 day ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ with The Coaching Academy is now all done and I literally feel like my mind has opened up to a brand new way of thinking, living and being.

The Coaching Academy

The day was split into two parts. During the first half of the day we looked at personal beliefs and what effect they have on our behaviour. In general, beliefs can be categorised in two ways: they either prevent from taking action or they empower us to take action. Most astonishingly, for many of the beliefs that we hold, we aren’t even aware that we have them as they are so deep-rooted and ingrained in us; in short, they are subconscious beliefs that have never (or rarely) been challenged during our lifetime.

End of day 1: Introduction to Life Coaching

Simply put, today was absolutely amazing. I finished Day 1 of my ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ and I feel extremely inspired and super, super excited for the future.

The seminar was run by The Coaching Academy who offer various programmes to train people to become life coaches within a specific field e.g. coaching for the youth, small business coaching or coaching within the corporate world.

I didn’t have many expectations prior to today. I came to the seminar with an open mind, hoping to gain some new techniques that could facilitate my own personal development and boost my motivation; and I definitely wasn’t expecting the day to be half as engaging or inspiring as it was.

Develop A Morning Routine

Until recently I hadn’t realised how vital a morning routine was in creating a positive start to the day and preparing both the mind and body for the activities ahead.

Previously, my morning routine was rather scattered as I wasn’t necessary waking up at the same hour each day, nor was I carrying out precise, well-chosen activities with which to commence the day.

However, now that I need more specificity in my mornings, and to also ensure a better utilisation of my time, I have enforced a concrete routine which I have been following for the last 4-6 weeks.

Work hard in silence, let success be your glory.

It’s crucial that we regularly set goals and work towards their attainment. I am a big advocate of goal-setting because it ultimately brings us closer to our dreams and aspirations.

We are forced to develop and expand our potential because the accomplishment of goals requires that we step out of our comfort zones; we strengthen and refine keys life-skills such as self-discipline, self-motivation and our ability to be tenacious and resolute; and (perhaps most importantly) reaching our goals engenders a huge sense of joy and satisfaction within us.
