What is a mindset coach? Do I even need one?
Coaching is about shaping mindsets, about getting you from point A, where you are, to point B, where you want to be. In traditional coaching, coaches usually help you identify what you want—your point B. They review your present state with you in relation to where you want to go along with the practices you have tried so far. After this, you usually create an action plan to get you to your desired destination.
A mindset coach, however, is someone who can help you work your way to your destination by helping you reframe your thinking; it’s inside out coaching!
What a mindset coach is not...
When people think of a coach, they sometimes think of a sports coach. A coach, in this case at least, usually tells you what to do and how to do it. Or perhaps you think of a financial coach, who tells you how, when and where to invest your money. A mindset coach does not look at your past, a therapist does. A mindset coach does not tell you how to solve a problem, a consultant would. And lastly, unlike a mentor, a mindset coach does not necessarily have more experience than you in a specific role or area.
How is a mindset coach different from a traditional coach?
In short, a mindset coach is someone who helps you reframe your thinking so you can get from point A to point B successfully.
The difference between a mindset coach and a regular coach is that apart from the regular coaching work, a mindset coach works with you to uncover internal roadblocks to achieving your goals. A mindset coach will help you unearth beliefs, behaviours, habits and thinking patterns that hinder you from living the life you want to live. A mindset coach can help you to narrow in on specific areas in your life and work with you to improve your thinking in those areas.
Once you have established the roadblocks, your mindset coach works with you to remove them through a range of reprogramming techniques. The idea is to replace the old with the new. This way, your results will have a lasting effect. Working with a mindset coach can change the trajectory of your life. Mindset coaching is a small sacrifice for the return on your investment.
You can put a myriad of actions in place, but if your mindset is not in the place to harness growth, the fruit of your work won’t have as much lasting impact or success.
A Mindset Coach versus a Therapist
A mindset coach is trained in a range of neuroscience-based therapeutic techniques such as Timeline Therapy (TLT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis. In addition to their traditional coaching training and techniques, they may also be qualified in other techniques such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). A therapist, on the other hand, focuses on solving internal issues from your past, but not necessarily for the purpose of creating an action plan that leads you to your ideal future.
Have you ever heard it said, “You are what you think?” A mindset coach can help you shift your perception and frame of thinking, therefore, changing your life. Mindset coaching combines both traditional methods along with some newer, more modern techniques.
While a mindset coach is not a therapist, they will provide you with a pathway towards a healthier, more holistic life. However, it is not simply about thriving, but also about having a framework for success. By using the techniques that suit your needs most, a mindset coach can help you reprogram your thinking to arrive at your desired destination. Changing our mindset means that the actions we implement have better, more lasting results.
As a mindset coach, I can help you gain a deeper understanding of the way you think and how it influences your world. Together, we can work to change beliefs that no longer serve you.
How do I know if a mindset coach is right for me?
If you feel far away from your goals or desires in life, or if you feel like you are not achieving all you can or becoming all you want to become, you will benefit from a mindset coach. Sometimes, we feel as though something is holding us back, but we might not be able to easily identify what that is. There can be a general feeling that there could be more to life. Other people might feel like they lack confidence or clarity about where they’re headed in life.
Ultimately, a mindset coach will help you clarify where you are, where you want to go and where you’re currently going. While working on your mindset might seem intangible, there are many tangible aspects to mindset coaching. A mindset coach will work with you to identify the source of the “misalignment” in your life. You may also have multiple pathways or options to choose from. You can work on aligning yourself closer to your goals both at a conscious and a subconscious level.
Working through our mindset at a subconscious level can feel like swimming against the current. When you work with a qualified mindset coach, you achieve results faster, better and with greater ease. If there are things preventing you from living the life you desire, you don’t have to stay there. Change is possible, and so is success.
If you’re ready to live a more expansive life, a mindset coach might be the right next step for you. Your future matters. You matter.
Together, we can take the next right step in the direction of your dreams. Why wait any longer?
Work through beliefs:
Can you identify with any of the following statements?
Your beliefs can be reflected in some of these statements.
“I don’t know where I’m going.”
“I’m not qualified/experienced enough to achieve what I want.”
“I don’t feel worthy of a significant opportunity.”
“Other people have better/more skills than I do.”
“I feel scared of trying something new and failing.”
If you’ve ever caught yourself thinking or feeling something similar, don’t worry. We all have mindset barriers to work through. The good news is that a mindset coach will help you break these down.
Work through emotions:
Emotions are powerful. They are indicators that help us locate ourselves. While some emotions might feel more unpleasant than others, they are not our enemies. Emotions can be sources of direction, and they can be redirected too! If you are overwhelmed with emotions or experience a lack of them, your mindset coach can help you understand why this is happening. A mindset coach will step in and work with you to transform your emotions into fuel for action.
As a mindset coach, I work with you at both the conscious and subconscious level.
Often, our thoughts are connected to our emotions. When you work with a mindset coach, you will recognise when there is a misalignment in what you’re thinking and what you’re feeling. You will learn to visualise and work towards the life you desire. You will also learn how one impacts the other, and how to address any negative impact from your emotions.
Work through behaviours:
Our behaviours can either limit us or unlock us. Behaviours are the last sprout of a thought. However, behaviour can be reverse engineered as you work through your beliefs and emotions. When you work with a mindset coach, you quickly realise that everything is interconnected. What is preventing you from living your dream life? Behaviours are easily quantified in actions.
Perhaps some of your actions are unhelpful to take you towards your desired destination, but with some work, your life can change from the inside out.
The Benefits of Mindset Coaching
Working with a mindset coach has a myriad of benefits.
Growth requires self-awareness. Perhaps some of your thoughts currently hinder your progress and development. We can also face the lack of support from those around us. Whatever the case might be, awareness will allow you to recognise your present state and help you work towards your desired destination. Working with a mindset coach will provide you with an unbiased source of insight. A mindset coach is an outside source of perspective.
I can help you identify your strengths, abilities, gifts, talents and weaknesses. Together, we can work so they can develop exponentially.
When you are self-aware, you can determine what success means to you and how to get there. For example, as an employer, your self-improvement may inspire your team members, change your perspective on failure, and allow for a culture of positive change.
As a mindset coach, I will provide you with guidance to gain self-awareness.
Mindset coaching will increase your motivation through an inside-out process. The truth is that if you solely change your actions, the change will fade. A mindset coach can help you rewire your thinking and help you find your why. If you need to rediscover your inner drive, mindset coaching will be ideal for you. Within you lives unlocked knowledge and potential that can lead you to momentum.
A change in your inner world will lift your motivation to succeed. It is not just about accomplishing a goal; it’s about becoming someone who will consistently accomplish a goal.
One of the best parts about working with a mindset coach is accountability. Goals become harder to accomplish when there is no structure to materialise them. Accountability will increase your level of discipline, grit, and focus. If you need to grow in your ability to follow through, mindset coaching will benefit you.
The beauty of mindset coaching is that we will not simply foster accountability through external motivation. Rather, we will focus on the internal work that will provide lasting habits and behaviors through a renewed mindset.
The nature of coaching involves engaging in self-reflection and engaging both with the world inside and outside of you. Ultimately, self-reflection along with the right environment for growth leads to change. However, you don’t have to wait for change to accomplish your goals. The change and the goal setting happen gradually, hand in hand, as you progress through your sessions.
As a mindset coach, it is my passion to help you determine what it is you are trying to accomplish. The beauty of goal setting is that you create a vision for the road ahead. It’s not just about accomplishing something, but it’s about becoming someone you desire to be. Mindset coaching will provide you with the right level of guidance to get the results you desire.
