In this highly competitive world, people face several challenges in their lives – be it career, office, business, or in your personal lives. They face issues of not getting the recognition that they deserve, the expectations are high – from management, family and socially amongst friends, relatives and colleagues, and they are constantly under stress trying to prove to themselves and others. For some people, there are issues related to health and wellness that pull them back, for instance, dealing with high anxiety, managing anger, losing weight, etc.
It may be observed that most of these issues are psychological in nature, which means that they have roots that are linked to some past experiences and beliefs, deep down at the sub-conscious level. These beliefs are firmly entrenched over time, and block their progress. Each time they want to perform on a larger stage, there is a voice in them that says, “You can’t because you failed in the past”, or “You have never done anything like this before”. Infact, even the goals that they set for themselves, are generally the ones that are in their comfort levels. This is also the reason for resistance to any Change, and most people continue to dwell in their comfort zones. The same is true even for health issues as most of them have a past belief linked to it. When one is not able to realise one’s goals, there is the obvious frustration and anxiety which lead to anger, depression, and even ailments. There is a need for the person to speak out and discuss their issues with someone whom they trust, someone who will listen to them, and someone who can look at their issues from an independent perspective without judging them.
People need people to talk to, and this is where Coaching becomes an important aspect in which people can use effectively.
