- What are the benefits of working with Dana?
Dana will help you to identify and shift any limiting beliefs that are holding you back from true happiness, living your best life, having amazing relationships, and being as successful as you can be. If you are feeling stuck or in an uncomfortable situation, or just not where you want to be, she, as your coach, will help you see the light and give you guided action steps. A life coach is also someone you can confide in, a positive outlet to express your thoughts and emotions, someone who has tools to expedite the process of success, an unbiased opinion and someone to hold you accountable to reaching your goals.
Dana is personally committed to guiding you in achieving your own personal success.
- Is coaching the same as counseling?
No. Counseling generally aims to solve problems by understanding what happened in the past. Coaching is almost exclusively future-focused, with an emphasis on shifting limiting beliefs and deliberately creating new, empowering beliefs. To counsel means to give advice. Coaches do not give advice – instead they use various techniques to facilitate the process of an individual finding the best path for themselves. Often clients have been in some type of counseling and/or therapy and are ready for a new approach which calls them to life coaching. Of course not all coaching clients have experienced counseling or therapy, for some this is the first step in their personal development journey.
- Why would people who are already successful hire a life coach?
Many people today want to live a life that is fulfilling and happy, and not simply go through the motions. People just want more. More happiness. More contribution. More fulfillment. More money. More passion and love. You can be financially successful and unhappy, or successful in one area but lacking in another. If you are tolerating any negative emotion, you can benefit from life coaching. Coaching allows you to continue being more, having more, and feeling more. There is no limit to the amount of joy you can experience, and as your life coach Dana will assist you in climbing up that incredible emotional ladder.
- Shouldn’t I be able to reach my goals on my own?
The extra edge a coach provides can make all the difference. Many people have been taught that doing it alone or hard work is what makes someone successful, but this simply is not true. Why do it alone when you can benefit from a coach that knows the quickest and best-feeling path to get you where you want to be? All of the greatest athletes, leaders, business owners and performers utilize coaches or other experts to determine the best direction and to provide objective support and feedback. Without this, it is almost impossible to achieve excellence. Don’t you deserve the same?
