When you think about having a coach, here are three reasons why you actually don’t need a coach at all.
1. The Answers you are looking for is already within you.
You might say “This couldn’t be as I don’t have the answer yet.” Well, that is because you are looking in the wrong direction.
Usually we look outside us. We ask a lot of people. Just to end up being totally confused.
Furthermore, we try to solve the issue or problem all the time. But there is no trying. And maybe there is no solution right now.
There might be a solution one moment in time, but we are not willing to wait. We drive ourselves crazy solving the problem.
While we drive ourselves crazy we totally forget that we already “know”. If we could just be willing to stay focused, open and willing to having the solution, we would get it.
I know that is a strong statement. After all of the experiences I made, I could honestly say, that this is the case. You have the answers you are looking for.
2. A coach might be misleading.
Not to mention, a coach is a human too. That means even coaches have opinions, experiences, and ideas. That’s not a bad thing at all.
It could become a problem if a coach is allowing his/her opinion or ideas to influence the coaching process.
The danger is in trying to push you in a certain direction. A certain direction that the coach believes would be good for you.
But how could the coach know if this direction might be good for you? The coach does not know, he or she is just following an assumption.
This should never be the case. A coach as hard as it is for a coach must stay away from adding his/her assumptions into the coaching process.
And that’s not easy. Nobody is able to stay totally objective all the time. If it is possible to be objective at all.
Though allow yourself to challenge anything your coach says that sounds like an opinion or assumption. A good coach will never mind.
3. It’s expensive to have a coach.
Of course, a good coach has a price tag that might make you feel uncomfortable at first.
But do the math. How much will the problem cost you if it takes you 3 month more to solve? 12 month more? And so on.
How much does a coaching session cost you? How many sessions do you need? Let’s assume a coaching session cost you €300, and you require 4 coaching sessions to find your solution.
If I’m right, that’s about €1.200. How high was the cost to keep doing it on your own? That’s how you make a decision about coaching.
But wait. It could get more inexpensive. Yes, that’s possible, as a matter of fact that would only imply a little more work on your end.
You are okay with more coaching work on your own? If yes, then the answer is to take a self-coaching course.
That just means you get preset questions and work your way through them. This might save you some money and some time.

What if you feel or get stuck in self-coaching?
Well, even if you engage with self-coaching you might come to a point where you feel that it could help to be guided by a coach.
Self-coaching could be seen as a good preparation to get even more out of the time you spend with a coach.
This is because you are more focused as you already had insights due to your self-coaching.
A coach might also ask you different questions than you asked yourself already. Thus, you will be able to see your issue from other perspectives.
On top of the aforesaid, a coach could adapt the questions according to your answers, which makes the coaching even more focused.
In addition, it feels great when you interact with a coach and know that someone is there to help you.
No matter how you decide about coaching, it is a good idea to use it as a way to find your own answers for the problems you are dealing with.
It’s a matter of fact that a coach will actually help you finding your own answers as the coach is solely responsible for the coaching process.
The outcome is up to you. If you are open and willing to dig deep into your own wisdom, you will find what you seek.
