The self is made, not given.
All these atypical questions may either amuse you or freak you out or may sound as if life has bestowed some grave cosmic mission upon you. The truth is, if these bring out vague, boring answers in you, then maybe it a good idea to start thinking deeply and at length about how you do what you do!
Why I say this?
The answers to these or similar questions are missing links between You as in ‘Now’ and A Better Version of You, You aspire to be.
BTW, who am I to suggest this? Do I have the answers to your life?
No, I neither have any readymade answers to those (apparently) frenzied questions above, nor I can explore them on your behalf. After all, I am not you.
All I can do is walk you through them to support you align your sense of direction with your intrinsic beliefs, passion and strength, helping you reflecting inside out and discovering what is important to you.
You experience life in your unique way. You have the key to access the treasure trove of your sagacity. So it’s for you to stretch your soul, take a leap of faith, muster up the courage to get things done and fulfil your deepest desire. Learning is in the doing.

But To Light Your Fire
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Life coaching?
Just about everyone has a vision of his or her ideal life. For some reason or other, in your case, if it hasn’t transformed into reality yet, getting in touch with a life coach could be a significant first step towards realising the vision that you have in your life.
Coaching is a transformational journey that puts you in touch with yourself. It’s a co-creative process where a coach walks hand in hand with his client as their accountability partner to help them recognise their skills, beliefs & values and dreams. They work with clients to help them reach their goals and succeed by supporting them to move past challenges that stand in the way of those goals.
Life coaching often includes principles of sports coaching. The coach may push, pull, and stretch you in ways that may feel uncomfortable – to bring out the best in you, challenge you to do more than you think you can, give constructive feedback pro to your growth, and motivate you to stay on track accomplishing your goal. But unlike sports coaching, in life coaching, the coach does not mentor or instruct how to win any game. Your life coach will help you discover ways to win your own life. You become the owner of your success story in which your coach plays the role of a social catalyst.
How does it work?
First, the client discusses with the Coach what he wants to accomplish, defining their goals and the challenges they have now or might come on their way to achieve their outcome. In life coaching, it’s best to be open, trusting, and honest within the coaching relationship to get the best.
Through proper questioning, robust conversation, boundless motivation, support, encouragement, and constructive feedback within a confidential and non-judgmental environment, the coach helps his client see and think through things from a clearer and balanced perspective, which empowers them to decide their action plans. The client’s commitment to complete these actions that he sets at the end of each session moves him closer to his overall goal.
How long are the coaching sessions?
Life coaching sessions take approximately 60 minutes to 90 minutes. These sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, whatever suits the client and the speed at which he is ready to take actions to achieve his goals.
How many life coaching sessions one goes through?
The answer to this question depends on what a client wants to achieve through his coaching. It depends on where he is now and where he wants to go, and how quickly he wants to get there. This may take as little as six sessions for some people, and it may be more for others. However, it is essential to know that a good coach’s goal is to reduce the client’s dependency on them as soon as possible – that shows the client is becoming more resourceful and learning to deal with new situations as they arise effectively.
How much does it cost and how can I pay?
No charge. The purpose of this mission to help as many people as possible who are seeking a bit of hand-holding, encouragement and honest feedback to move ahead to become the best with all the resources they have in themselves.
How is Life Coaching different from counselling?
Coaching and counselling are similar to an extent as both counsellors and coaches ask the client questions, sometimes requiring a lot of soul-searching. Neither a counsellor nor a coach advises their clients, but they listen to what you say and direct the conversation with further pertinent questions. However, there is a difference. A typical counselling session deals with emotions and issues of the past; the coaching relationship is focused on the future. It deals with optimising your life’s opportunities to achieve a more significant objective and greater happiness.
