"I'm just not good enough." It's something we therapists, counselors, and coaches hear all too often from our clients. In fact, it's probably the most prevalent belief in our society: number one on the hit parade of limiting beliefs about self.

The cognitive approach is to refute the belief in an effort to convince the client that he or she is, indeed, "good enough" -- an acceptable human being. I myself have done that. I've urged clients to list their positive attributes. I've reminded them that they are not axe murderers. I've had them stand in front of a mirror, as motivational speaker Louise Hay recommended, and say kind and loving things to themselves. Sometimes these methods help. Sometimes they don't.

I just wanted to spread the word about Life Coaching and what it can do to help just about anyone. No, not every coach is suited for every client but the right coach/client combination is such powerful tool.

I hear different variations of the following questions and statements a lot: "What can a coach do for me?", "I can't afford to pay a coach!", "What does SHE know that I don't know?", "I don't need a stinking' Coach!" OK, well I tossed the word "stinking'" in there (smile) but I do know there are many people who could benefit from the power of coaching but feel they don't need it.
