Have you ever been in that situation where you feel like you need to change something in your life?
Sometimes, we know exactly what the problem is, sometimes we don’t– all we know is that there are some changes that need to be made. Maybe it’s a nagging feeling at the back of your head, or the feeling of wandering aimlessly, or maybe you feel a bit more troubled than you normally are. Or maybe even the feeling that you want to be better than you already are!
If you find yourself in any of those situations above, give life coaching a try! In fact, there are so many other reasons for someone to have a life coach— whether you’re being haunted by stress, your past or a current problem, or whether you’re just looking for over-all improvement.
The thing is, even when you feel like you’re generally okay with your life, there is always something to improve for your own personal growth!
That is exactly what we encountered at the Be Happy-Hungry: Happy With Who You Are, Hungry For Who You Can Be Through Life Coaching seminar, hosted by Winning Coaching!
Winning Coaching is a group of life coaches practicing NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Looking up the definition of NLP can be a mouthful, but coach Edwin Soriano, the founder of Winning Coaching sums it up with one word: healing. Simply put, it’s how we use our mind and language to be more in charge of your thoughts and feelings, for a better state.
The Happy-Hungry seminar was so insightful, inspiring and eye-opening that I just have to share with you 5 things I learned about life coaching.
Be HappyHungry: 5 Things About Life Coaching For A Better You!
5. Life coaching is not the same as counselling.
This is made very clear from the get-go– while counselling may attempt to solve your problems by digging into your past, life coaching helps you rediscover what your purpose in life is to solve whatever is needed to be solved. Even more important that a life coach is not a therapist. While life coaches can help you deal with traumas that you may have, life coaching does not solve dysfunctions that need to be clinically treated.
4. Everyone has something to work on.
Even if you truly feel that life is just peachy and you are happy… good for you! Even happy people can benefit from life coaching, in order to become even happier and to look forward to what you can even be more of! Also, life coaching is not just for companies looking to reinvent their leadership and work dynamics… it’s for everyone! From kids to teens, to singles, couples and even executives, life coaching can definitely work wonders at any age, and Winning Coaching has a program for everyone.
3. Whatever your body is feeling can be a way of telling your mind something is wrong.
There are times when what we feel in our bodies– constant headaches, body pain, stomachaches, and other physical ailments are signs telling us that there is something wrong with whatever we are doing. Through NLP life coaching, you can get to the bottom of whatever condition you may be experiencing and take care of the problem from the root.

2. Our subconscious is more powerful than we think.

I was able to experience this in a session I had with Coach Edwin– that the subconscious is more powerful than we think. Everything that we are not consciously aware of — our intuition, our dreams, that “gut feeling”, our previous experiences, memories– all those and more make up our subconscious, as opposed to our “conscious”, which is what we use to think logically and critically. The subconscious and conscious don’t have to be mutually exclusive, in fact, your subconscious can help your conscious in making better decisions. Through NLP life coaching, you are able to tap into your subconscious, even into memories long “forgotten” in order to come up with answers to what you’re currently experiencing today.
1. Oftentimes, we can find the answers to our problems within ourselves.
Fun and happiness!
As related above, it is tapping into our subconscious that we can find the answers– because we usually know the answers ourselves anyway.
But because they’re hidden deep within our fears and buried experiences, we may need help in rediscovering them. That’s where life coaches come in. They are like tour guides, navigating you through processes and help you find resources so you can choose better and make better decisions.
