Follow the simple steps outlined below and you are on your way to being your own life coach. Learn how to improve your life, without spending a penny.

Yes, life coach websites will tell you that life coaches advantage is that they guide you from an outside vantage point. Just the opposite is true- a stranger charges you an outrageous amount of money to tell you what to do with your life! Wow, I don’t know about you, but enough people are already trying to tell me how to live my life, what to do about a career, and just about everything else. It’s time to step up and make your own decisions about what is right for you!

Start by reviewing the 5 basic elements of Life Coaching , and follow the simple instructions for doing them yourself. Then get a special notebook that will be your Life Journal. You will never, ever use your Life Journal for anything else. Begin your commitment to your life changes with the simple commitment to keep this book for you and only you. And don’t tear any pages out, so that later you can look back on your thoughts. Be sure to put the date on every page.

Your Life Journal should be used for each of your appointments. You should also use it to record any ideas your have relative to the Life Plan you are going to develop.

1. Do more than you would do on your own. The way to accomplish this is to make an appointment with yourself for 2x a week. That’s right, an appointment for undisturbed time. If you need a quiet place, take your self to the library and coach yourself there. Keep the appointment as if you were paying some stranger $200-$400 an hour for it!

2. Take yourself more seriously. You are doing this already as soon as you book the appointments with yourself. By doing this you are recognizing your own value, and the need to give some time and attention to yourself and your life. You’ve decided that you will decide where to go in life, instead going wherever life takes you.

3. Create momentum and consistency. The way to create momentum is to begin to believe in you, deep down. Start by listing all your positive qualities. Don’t make a list of the negative ones- forget about them, since they are counterproductive. Now take those positive qualities, and think of ways to capitalize on them. Remember that you are not going to do this all in one sitting! This is a process and you are taking the first step.

4. Take effective and balanced actions.
This is done with planning, and adherence to your plan. As a certified project manager, I can vouch for the value of planning. You need to decide what you want to do and set some basic goals. Then you work toward the goals according to your plan. A paid coach can only give you the ideas- you still have to be the one to make the changes.

These are the basic steps to take effecitve action for your first 2 Self Life Coaching sessions:
Session 1

– This is the first step toward developing your own personal Life Plan. Write down what you hope to achieve by being your own Life Coach.
– Make a list of all the things you do well; every single thing, no matter how small. Keep going, and add even little things. You will be amazed at how much there is. If you are not, you are not giving yourself enough credit, or you are looking for things that are too big.
– Make a list of all the things you would like to do in your life. They can be big or small, professional or personal. Perhaps you want to learn to draw, or become a teacher. These should be positive ideas, and they need not be realistic, or even in the near future. This is about your dreams.

Session 2
– Prioritize the areas of your life that you need to change:
career, personal, and spiritual. List the areas of your life that you would like to change, and decide where you need to start. And please don’t make this about your weight or a diet. Once you get your life on track, weight management will fall into place if it’s and issue.
– Select the one change that you will begin to work on.
Now select the change that you have prioritized and give it some thought.
– Write the 3 steps required to make the change (use more steps if it is a big change). Be sure that you break them into small items so you can accomplish something towards them each week.
– Take the first step before next week’s appointment with yourself, and record it in your Life Journal. Take the first step toward change. Even if that step is a phone call or a web search for information on the change.

5. Become more balanced and fulfilled
Remember, no matter what a professional life coach would tell you, it is still up to you. They only suggest, give you a plan, and perhaps some ideas on how to get there. But it’s still up to you to make the changes, to take the actions, to stick to the plan. If you do it my way, the Life Coach Yourself way, you also end up with a couple of thousand dollars more in the bank!
