Being a life coach can be one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world. You can help people with their lives and make money at the same time. But being a life coach is not an easy job.

A person aspiring to be a life coach needs to have proper training as well as the heart and determination to help people. For those who want to be a life coach, here are some tips and pieces of advice on how to be a life coach.

Definition of Life Coach and Life Coaching

You may already have some personal ideas of what a life coach is and what he or she does. Some information of this may be true and some may be not. To remove any misconceptions of the job of being a life coach, it would be good to learn what a life coach and what life coaching really is all about.

Life coaching is rooted in the methods of executive coaching which were derived from techniques that were developed in leadership training and management consulting. It also forged its principles from different disciplines like psychology, sociology, mentoring, career development and positive adult development. Because of these though, it has been a misconception that life coaching is a kind of therapy but is actually not.

A life coach is someone who practices life coaching. He or she is someone who helps other people determine and achieve their goals. They use different methods to do this. Methods of life coaches include behavior modification, mentoring, behavior modeling, values assessment, and goal setting. They may also modify existing methods depending on the client to make the coaching more effective. Again, life coaches should not be considered as psychologists or therapists.

The Willingness To Help

One of the most important traits that an aspiring life coach should posses is the willingness to help people. If you are just in because of the financial benefits of life coaching then it would be better to look for another job or business. In life coaching, you should always think of helping first before thinking of the profit.

Communication Skills

Life coaching is communicating. In this job, you will always be interacting with people of different behavior, attitude and backgrounds in life. As a life coach, it is very important that you have good communication skills. You should know how to convey the ideas that you want your clients to hear.

Communication skills is not only about talking and conveying your ideas. It is also important for a life coach to know how to listen. In this line of job, listening is a skill that is critically important for its success.

Undergo Training

The willingness to help and communication skills are definitely crucial to posses but they will not be enough. As have been stated in the definition, life coaches make use of different methods to help their clients. Of course these methods will not just occur to anyone.

As an aspiring life coach, you need to undergo different training programs as well as related seminars. This will provide you with the skills on how to help your future clients. With the help of training, you will be armed with the tools of the trade.

These are the 3 most important things you should consider on how to be a life coach. And not just any life coach but a life coach who can effectively help other people.

In 2016 I will be launching the “Diamond Coaching Success Training” Coaching Certification Program. Stay connected for more information coming in the next few weeks.

My 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer Journey

August 11, 2015 Leave a comment

testimonyI pray that this article finds you experiencing the goodness of God in your everyday life, ministry and business.

As some people know I completed 21 days of fasting and prayer on August 8th. The purpose of the fast was for clarity, understanding and direction. The reasons I decided to fast were because one, I feeling sluggish in my spirit, second, I was spiritually tired and weary, third, I knew something was missing spiritually and naturally, but I couldn’t put my finger on it and fourth, I wanted God to reveal to me what I couldn’t see going on around me and what I didn’t understand was going on within me.

I chose the Daniel’s fast because the Word of God teaches in Daniel 10 that Daniel set his mind to gain understanding and he humbled himself before God through 21 days of fasting. I wanted the spiritual warfare to be defeated by the power of the Holy Spirit on my behalf and I needed a strength stronger than my own to conquer the state of mind that I was in.

What Has This 21 Days Journey Been Like For Me?

Overall, this experience was a blessing for me. It started off good, however, I was disappointed that some people who I thought would (and should) join me didn’t. There were some family and friends that I was depending on to be a part of this journey. What a “breakthrough” for me that they did not. In the past, my discouragement would come from expecting people I know to be a part of what I was doing. Today, I only expect the ones God wants to be a part to be a apart of what I am doing?

As my inner man was being strengthen, the Lord revealed to me three main things that were lacking in my life concerning my ministry, calling and business:

  1. Momentum –  mine was low because I was focusing on the wrong people wanting the right results.
  2. Asking – I was asking the wrong person for help. The right person became the wrong person when he/she doesn’t honor their word. I was wrong to continue asking the person for help.
  3. Accountability – I wasn’t accountable to the right people because my momentum  was low and I was focused on the wrong person.

What I Know For Sure!

I have been entrusted with the wisdom of God, a preaching assignment, and an awesome gift of teaching. Because my momentum and excitement became weary in doing well, I sat on my gifts for a season – using them “just a little bit.” God revealed to me that I am equipped and trained with all that I need to experience the more abundant life purposed for me.

The Lord showed me that there are people who I am assigned to – that’s you and others – that are waiting for me to continue on in my assignment showing up in a big way for them with what He has given me. I have been entrusted  with the solutions to their problems and answers to their questions.

What’s My Commitment To God and You!

As a result of this time of fasting and prayer my commitments are:

  1. I commit to trusting completely in God being led by His Spirit in knowing who to trust in the natural.
  2. I commit to using my spiritual gifts and talents wholeheartedly to empower, equip and train the Body of Christ with biblical principles and strategies for victorious living.
  3. I commit to using my business and ministry training and skills to teach other how to be successful in the market place and in marketplace ministry.
  4. I commit to establishing divine connections for spiritual growth and success in kingdom living and prosperity.

Having the gift of wisdom means having other gifts connected to it. One can teach without wisdom just releasing information. However, with the gift of wisdom, it is hard to teach and not bring about transformation in the lives of others.

I have been entrusted with a lot from God and I commit to doing “greater works” from now until it’s time for my glory transition.

Thanks to those who took this 21 day journey with me, those who prayed for me and for being connected to me.

My commitment to you is to stay connected to you, serving you with what I have in a spirit of truth, integrity and loyalty.

My Special Gift For You!

As a thank you for reading this article (or shall I say long article – lol) and for being connected with me I will be giving to you some items from my teaching products to help you in your life, ministry and/or business.

I will post another article tomorrow with the web page link for you to access your special gifts.  The web page will be live until August 31, 2015. Be sure to access your “special free” gifts by then.

YOU are Very Special to me. I am humbled and honored to be connected to you.  My prayer is that you will experience God’s very best for your life, ministry and/or career.

I love you with the love of the Lord.

In His Integrity,

Minister Ginger London

Know Your Spiritual Gift – What Should You Do Next?

spiritual-gifts-815x400

What should You do once You know my Gift(s)? Here are seven ways to unwrap your spiritual gifts.

  1. Dedicate yourself to learning more about your gift and how God wants you to use it. He will let you know in his time what you are to do.
  2. Develop your gift by using it. Seek out a Pastor or biblically based life coach, take courses that relate to the gift, and pay attention to how you develop in your gift.
  3. Study the Scripture.
  4. Talk to others having the same gifts because they will either have insights or may need your encouragement.
  5. Pray for guidance and strength. You may become discouraged at times about your gift and how you are being use or not being used.
  6. Be sensitive to the need of others when it comes to executing your gift.
  7. Do not neglect your role because God entrusted it to you for a reason.

Facts about Spiritual Gifts:

  • Spiritual Gifts are not natural ability or talent.
  • Spiritual Gifts are not the Fruit of Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).
  • Spiritual Gifts can be abused.
  • Spiritual Gifts are received, not achieved.
  • The Gifts allow for diversity within unity because we each have unique work to do.
  • Each member of the Body of Christ is unique, important, and useful.
  • Spiritual Gifts are good but only when ministered in love (1 Corinthians 13).
  • The Gifts are diverse, but all are equally honorable.

Eight Ways to Discover Your Spiritual Gifts

Discovering your Spiritual Gifts

How do you discover your Spiritual Gifts? Here are eight ways I believe will help you.

  1. Understand what the gifts are. Once you understand each gift you will be able to discern more effectively what yours might be.
  2. Accept that you are gifted with these special endowments given to you by the Holy Spirit on behalf of our Father who has a great plan for you.
  3. Analyze yourself. Look at your interests, passions, personality, and even your talents and skills.
  4. Seek confirmation from others. Sometimes people who are in tune with spiritual things can see what gifts you may have.
  5. Evaluate the results of all that you learned and observed about the gifts you believe you are blessed with. Do you see evidence of these gifts in your life?
  6. Dedicate yourself to ministry because in doing so you will eventually find your gifted path.
  7. Take an assessment online.
  8. Sit with a Biblical/Christian Coach, Counselor or pastor to determine where God might be using you.

Know Your Spiritual Gifts

Some people believe that knowing what your gifts are bare no true meaning. However, knowing the purpose of a thing is very useful. Not knowing the purpose of your gifts will cause you to live in what I call the “Haphazard Zone”.  That is the zone where you walk aimlessly through life, day-to-day not knowing who you are or what is going on. You are allowing life to happen to you and not living life to the fullest.

Discovering your spiritual gifts will open your eyes to the purpose of your life.

Can you imagine where your life would be if you understood what God had for you? Or what you were born to do? Everything has a purpose. When you don’t know the purpose of something you will abuse it. You have a destiny. You have a call. God gave you gifts that you were designed specifically for.

The three main reasons why you need to discover your Spiritual Gifts:

  1. Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will enable you to find your place of ministry in the Body of Christ. Every Christian has a particular function in the body of Christ. Your spiritual gifts equip you to carry that purpose out and to enhance the Body of Christ.
  2.  Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will enable you to determine your priorities. Knowing your gifts will keep your life with boundaries around it. You will not just let any and everything into your life. One of the most common problems we all face is having more things to do than we have time to do them. Paul says in Romans 12:6-8, that we should make the use of our spiritual gifts a priority in our lives. In simple terms, when we have too many things to do we must choose to function in the area of our spiritual gifts. In order to set priorities you must know what your spiritual gifting is.
  3. Knowing your spiritual gift(s) will be of great help in discerning God’s will. To expand our last point just a little bit further, knowing your spiritual gift(s) can be very helpful in discerning the will of God in the direction your life takes, especially your occupation. For example, if you do not have the gift of teaching or leadership, a teaching position perhaps that is not the field for you.  There is a very distinct relationship between knowing the will of God (Romans 12:1-2) and understanding your spiritual gift (Romans 12:3-8).

Here are a few more reasons why knowing your gift is important:

  • Commitment based on the focus of our gifts rather than abstract commitment will help you keep your commitments
  • You will have more effective service in whatever area you are working in
  • Appropriate commitment to ministry
  • You will have more confidence in overcoming inferiority about who you are and what you are to do

You Are Spiritually Responsible For Your Personal Growth

What is Personal Growth and Getting Yourself Together?

There are many people in our society today that are very unhappy or unsatisfied with their lives for one reason or another. Whatever reason they have for being unhappy, there is undoubtedly a way to change it. Sometimes it requires a change in career, or situation. Other times it is simply a change in the way that people think. Sometimes, it is both. This is what personal growth and “getting yourself together” is all about.

Personal growth is spiritual and a path that you take to better your family situation, career, spirituality, emotional health, and every other aspect of your life. Essentially, personal growth is about making conscious decisions about everything that you do, the way that you think, and the way that you react to situations. Personal growth can help you attain everything that you always dreamed of, and more, with the simple application of a few simple mind-set changes.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God –Romans 12:2 (NKJV).

One of the biggest steps toward personal growth is a change in mind-set. If you think [know] that you can do better, you will. If you think that you are stuck in a dead-end job, without family or friends to support you, and no prospects of a better future, you will ultimately be very unhappy. When you change your mind-set to positive thinking and knowing better for yourself, you will find that you put forth more effort into everything that you do, and you will have much better results.
