Signature Program – Be Happy Now© Happiness & Life Purpose Coaching

  • Discover your life purpose and values in my 5 step program to unlock your full potential by using positive psychology principles. Having a clear life purpose will enable you to focus your energy on what matters most and you. German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche once said, “He who has a why can endure any how.” As such, knowing your why is an important first step in figuring out how to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy living.
  • You will also develop a happier and positive mindset and this will have positive effects on your outlook in life. The quality of our lives depends on the quality of our thoughts which affect our emotions and behaviours on a daily basis.

FAQ

Do view the video above as it will help you provide a clearer picture on what is coaching.In this video, you will understand the differences are as follows:-

 1. Therapists focus on the past and work with you to fix what’s broken. As a coach, we do not focus on past issues or traumas because we are not psychologists or psychotherapists. Coaching focuses on the present and on how we can move you forward towards your ideal life.

 2. Consultants usually provide quantitative analysis and create roadmaps for organisational change and are paid to provide you with answers. Consulting is also more expertise based as they provide you with a solution in a specific area and do not address your intrinsic and emotional needs.

 3. Mentors are already experts in their fields and are helping others who are less experienced to achieve success.

 However, a coach will ask powerful questions to empower you and is focused on helping you design your own future by creating a goal plan. On top of this, as a coach, I will help to remove your self-limiting beliefs such as fears and self-doubt so that your inner self is strengthened. When you are emotionally and mentally prepared, you have greater chances of success to stay committed and take action to ensure you achieve your goal plan.

  1. Is there a gap between where you are now and where you want to be in your career or life?
  2. Do you want to stop struggling and achieve a breakthrough to move forward?
  3. Do you want to find out how to discover your full potential and achieve your goals?

If you say yes to any of the above, then there is room for a coach. Why struggle on your own when you can get what you want in a shorter time frame with the structure, support and tools of a coach?

The greatest gift you can give yourself is to live to your fullest potential. Your mind actually knows no limits, it is only limited by the beliefs that you have imposed on yourself. Due to self-limiting beliefs, we do not believe we can achieve our goals because we often say, “It’s too hard, I’ll never make it”. However with coaching, you now have the opportunity to transform your life.

Similarly like how a professionally trained athlete reaps the benefits of a sports coach, I will be your personal coach that will reveal your potential. Coaching is not new as it has been used for centuries to support ordinary sports people to attain breakthroughs by firstly addressing the mental mindset that will translate to greater performance.

Apart from removing self-limiting beliefs, coaching will also help you develop a happier mindset to achieve greater success. We have been conditioned from young that if we work hard, we will be more successful and only then will we be happy. As a result, we postpone our happiness to the future because the present moment is seen as insufficient. According to Shawn Achor, one of the world’s leading experts in positive psychology from Harvard University, he states this formula is completely backwards because happiness promotes success, not the other way round. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. With coaching, you can be happy and successful in order to live your best life

  • You will discover what you really want in life and how to move closer towards your goals.
  • You will stay focused as we will develop a monitoring and feedback system for follow-ups.
  • You will shed your self-limiting beliefs and emerge as a more confident and empowered individual
  • You will have better time management to achieve your results faster.
  • You will stay motivated and will not be easily distracted by unimportant diversions that waste your time.
  • You will have a support structure that will guide you along the way to ensure you are not derailed.

Most of us have many goals we want to achieve in life but we often feel overwhelmed and drowned by our current commitments and schedules. What you need to do is de-clutter your life and focus on what’s really important with the help of a coach. Even professional athletes need the help of a sports coach to steer them in the right direction for tangible and faster results. A coach will provide you with the added advantage and head-start above everybody else.

The coaching duration will vary as it depends on what you would like to work on. You can determine the number of coaching sessions you require. If it is only a simple project or issue that you wish to work on, the coaching can be done in 3 sessions or less. However, if you wish to have a holistic coaching life plan, we can discuss further on your requirements as each client is different. The main objective is to ensure you have made progress. If at any point you feel that the coaching session is not according to your needs, you can request to discontinue.

The globally recognised International Coach Federation states people hire a coach because:

  1. They Want More
  2. They Want to Grow
  3. They Want it Easier
  1. Coaching provides a structured support for clearer focus.
  2. It will help you to remove your Self-Limiting Beliefs to achieve your fullest potential.
  3. The results will be long-lasting because it addresses intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of your life.
  4. As your coach, I will be your objective and positive supporter.

Accountability

Regular coaching sessions will be scheduled to ensure that you stay on track with your goal. Imagine that you are trying to increase your fitness and you are hiring a personal trainer at a gym to ensure you have the right guidance and support to achieve faster results. This is certainly more effective as compared to you having to work on your goal alone as there may be daily distractions and you could easily give up when it becomes too challenging. I will act as your accountability partner to monitor your progress and help ensure you achieve your goal.

 Expertise

As a Certified Masters Coach coach, I will be using a proven coaching protocol that is recognised internationally. A well-trained coach will also make sure that coaching is done according to ethical and professional standards which all responsible coaches subscribe to. Coaching will be done with passion, commitment and competencies that will help build your self-confidence and self-belief.

 Speed

You will find that you are moving faster towards your goal because it is a structured process with a clear end goal in mind. Goals will be written down and agreed upon with a targeted deadline which will help pave the direction forward in a targeted manner.

  1. Firstly, if you are curious to find out more about coaching, please contact me for further clarifications.
  2. Next, we can have a call or discussion to understand your coaching case and you can let me know briefly how you would like me as a coach to help you.
  3. Once you are ready to proceed, we will draft out a coaching contract which spells out the scope and expectations that are needed for the success of the coaching relationship.
  4. The coaching can take place virtually or in person depending on each other’s availability and convenience. The coaching duration will also vary depending on the coaching agenda.

Will it work?

If you find that the first session doesn’t suit you, you can stop the second session with no penalties.

Will I be more stressed during coaching? I don’t need another boss to push me around!

The coaching relationship is like a partnership. We will work together as partners and according to your own pace and comfort levels. 

I already have so much work to do, how can I find spare time to commit to coaching?

Making time for coaching can help accelerate your trajectory to where you wish to be in a much faster and more efficient manner.
