I vividly remember the time when I was still embarking on my own self-discovery journey towards becoming my own #bestmeever. I asked myself this question: who do I resonate with the most? Top of mind then was Oprah Winfrey.
I grew up watching her talk shows and I have always been fascinated by the way she’s able to change lives in an instant as she speaks. Taking that to heart, I knew a part of me wanted to be like her someday. So I did further research and found out one of her secrets to her success.
She had her own coach. And that moment, I immediately knew, I had to have mine. That marked the beginning of my journey towards becoming a Global Master Coach, my #bestmeever.
So after several certifications and accreditation, countless number of hours of training and actual professional practice, numerous clients worldwide with amazing results, I can now finally say that I am living my “Oprah Winfrey” dream: inspiring and changing lives as I speak. This time around, as Coach Myke Celis.
So that was the reason why I got my first ever coach back then. Along the way though, I realized more reasons why it’s advantageous to journey towards becoming the person you’re meant to be with a coach. Allow me to share with you my top five reasons:
Discover And Win Over Limiting Beliefs. Roughly 80% of our belief system is formed at age 0-12 years old. So if during that time you experienced a difficult childhood, got bullied, so on and so forth – these actually shaped the way you react towards people, things and situations at present. By getting a professional coach, you will be able to understand where these limiting beliefs are coming from, how they manifest at present and how you can overcome them. Imagine how amazing it will be if you get to journey through life without any excess baggage!
Gain Clarity. Remember when we were kids, we used to have a crystal clear vision of who we were and what we wanted to be. But then growing up, life happened. And we got lost and confused along the way. Getting a coach will allow you to understand your personal journey better and identify blind spots which may have been hindering your progress. Having a clear picture of who you are now and what you’re meant to be allows you to journey through life more with ease.
Love, Accept And Nourish Your Authentic Self. Journeying with a coach allows you to discover more about yourself, understand yourself better and allow you to embrace yourself and love yourself fully. By doing this, you enable yourself to live a life free of self judgement and self doubts – a critical situation that will empower you to become the person you’ve always wanted to be.
Embrace Changes Beautifully. Change is inevitable. However, the most common reaction a person has towards change is either fear or resistance. So whether you’re having difficulty in aging, changing relationship status, shifting careers or transitioning to what you’re meant to be, having a coach will come in handy as you are able to strategically plan your action steps to deal and thrive amidst change.
Become the best version of yourself. If given the chance, what would you rather be? A highly successful businessman? A famous actor? A world-renowned coach? The next question is…why not? No dream can be too big when you are able to take responsibility for your actions and stretch yourself beyond limits which you never thought possible.
All these and more are possible though when you choose to get yourself a coach who knows all your strengths and can inspire you to use them to achieve your grandest goals. One who empowers you to focus on your purpose and beautiful possibilities as you become your best.
I can still add to this list but hopefully this will inspire you enough to take action and give yourself what you truly deserve: The chance to become your own #bestmeever when you hire your own coach.
