Live Your Life. Love Your Life…
There’s a lot of joy to be had in this world.
Life coach and Joylogy founder Tricia Huffman is on a mission to help her clients find it.
Huffman started her career as a sound engineer in the music industry, which led her to making connections with many big-name musicians who eventually were inspired and encouraged by Tricia’s coaching.
“I was working with some of my idols — Grammy Award winners — and got to see first-hand that even these people who, from the outside look like they have it all, still need inspiration,” Huffman said.
We asked her a series of questions that we’ve asked many of the phenomenal coaches who’ve worked with us and who offer step-by-step strategies on our site. One of Tricia’s most interesting responses came when we asked her about why people need a life coach.
1. Life Coaches Help You See What You Can’t See
When you want to dream big, your life coach will help you get out of the way so you can head down the road to personal development, growth and the embracing of the life you desire.
A life coach is like a new set of eyes to “help you see what you are not able to see in yourself and for yourself,” Huffman said.
“A life coach is like a new set of eyes to “help you see what you are not able to see in yourself and for yourself.”
As Tricia Huffman’s fellow coaching experts have pointed out on the Goaly blog, sometimes the work of the coach — joyologist, in this case — involves helping the client rediscover who they’ve been all along.
2. Life Coaches Give an Unbiased View of Your Life
Having a new set of eyes around will be painful but productive — your coach will help you “to have an unbiased, fresh view on yourself and what you are going through and want for your life,” Huffman said.
“Life coaches are going to give you objective advice that you probably won’t get from friends or loved ones who may be afraid to tell you the hard truths
Coaches are professionals, which means when you ask them to come into your life and help you become the person you want to become, they’re going to give you objective advice that you probably won’t get from friends or loved ones who may be afraid to tell you the hard truths.
In fact, Huffman said, that’s part of her coaching style: “I tell it like it is, but I have a heart of gold.”
3. Life Coaches Help You Get Out of Your Own Way
Once you and your coach analyze your life and your desires for your future, you’ll be able to craft a plan together which will help you realize your potential.
Somewhere in that process of formulating a plan, you’re going to need a solid shove from your life coach and your own soul, one that will help you “get out of you own way and really go for the life you dream of.”
“I want for all of us in this world to truly live each day and truly love each day.”
“I want for all of us in this world to truly live each day and truly love each day,” Huffman says on her coaching site. “This world has so much to offer us, day in and day out, no matter where you are or who you are.”
