Self-coaching is a great way to get to know yourself better and is something that I would recommend you do even if you have an existing coach or mentor.  It is simply the art of asking yourself the right questions.


Once you undеrѕtаnd you аrе only uncovering whаt already еxiѕtѕ, your еxресtаtiоnѕ bеgin tо ѕоаr. Juѕt knowing thеrе iѕ аn аnѕwеr to уоur most diffiсult рrоblеm can givе уоu hope. Yоu juѕt have tо learn how to unсоvеr уоur ѕоlutiоn.

Tony Robbins suggests that the quality of someone's life is determined by the quality of the questions they ask themselves, and he urges people to ask better questions.  When you think about some of the most significant inventions and events in history, they have happened because someone dared to ask a question.

Some of these questions may not have answers at the time, however over time the answers were revealed.  Just for a moment think about the questions that the following people may have asked to impact change on a personal and global level; Nelson Mandela, President Obama or Mother Theresa.

Self-coaching might seem quite daunting, but it's just a conscious way of asking yourself questions, which is something we do unconsciously every day.  The key reasons self-coaching might not work is if...

  1. You don't ask good enough questions
  2. You don't take time to discover the answer - the first answer that comes up might not be the one that helps you evolve.
  3. You are not honest with yourself and you will know because when you answer you will have a feeling of whether you are giving the right answer.
  4. You don't follow through on the solutions that come up.

Self-coaching is a great strategy that should be paired with coaching, mentoring and learning.  It helps you get to the finish line and beyond while increasing your self-awareness and understanding.  It takes commitment, discipline, persistence and patience to get to the heart of what you need to know.
