In your experience, would you say that you can help yourself overcome these barriers if you wanted to?
KM: In my case, I really wanted to become a life coach (for about 5 years). At the age of 19 with very little experience I had no idea why I wanted to become a life coach. I even thought that I would be very happy to simply sit around and help other people with these challenges, but then I realized that it might be beneficial to become one, because I can’t imagine how much more fulfilling life is than when there’s a person around to help. This doesn’t happen so much today, so I think that there’s a lot of value in becoming a coach, and I’m very excited to get started.
How do you feel as a result of your experience of becoming a life coach?
KM: Well, being a life coach has helped me understand the meaning of life so much better. I don’t know if it’s been my biggest impact, but it has definitely made me more empathetic to other people and they might know about their life a lot sooner and I can talk to them in a way that they wouldn’t normally talk to me.
What are the most important things you look for in a life coach?
KM: I really want to encourage a sense of community. I’m learning a lot from coaching people and we all have different goals. So, we have to find our own personal goals. I want to empower people to understand that, if there’s anything they can do, then why not? If someone says it can’t be done, then they’re wrong. Life can be whatever you want it to be. So, I’m trying to educate people by asking them to try what they’ve always wanted to do and that’s why it’s so exciting to get new people together.
Can you explain your view on success?
KM: It’s all due to attitude, motivation, dedication, and commitment. In my profession as a coach I look at what can help them to get a lot of success and I think that a lot of the things I have to do are very similar to a lot of my clients who are successful. So, I don’t really know if there’s much difference between people that are successful and people that are trying to be successful.
Do you have any advice for aspiring lifters?
KM: Not one I would give to anyone, but you should always ask
