10 Benefits of Law School Life Coaching You Must Experience Now
In other parts of the globe, law school or law student life coaching is something law students avail of to resolve their conflicts. Individuals from different walks of life have experienced benefits from this. Nevertheless, only few Filipinos know about it.
“What benefits can I get from law school coaching?”, you might ask.
Well, here are some of them:
#1 Law school life coaching enables you to discover your passion and life’s purpose
Apart from being the best lawyer you can be, have you ever wondered why you were born?
Do you know what it is you’re passionate about?
For a few lucky ones, these questions are no brainer. Unfortunately, these can be quite tricky to answer for some. Thus, it’s totally fine if you can’t answer these questions right at this very moment.
You see, finding your passion and life purpose is not something you can predict through scientific method or experimentation. Actually, it can take some time for you to figure out what we’re truly passionate about.
Through life coaching, you’ll be able to discover all your passions and life’s purpose that will enable you to help others in a fulfilling way.
#2 Fosters self-awareness
Oxford Languages defines self-awareness of his character, desires, motives, and feelings. It may also mean looking into how others see you as an individual.
As for me, the essence of self-awareness is being able to know who you really are as a person. However, this is easier said than done since it’s often difficult to see yourself in the self-aware perspective. Most of the time, the only way to do it is to have someone to make you see what needs to be seen and appreciated
Self-awareness enables you to improve yourself and better manage your relationships and other personal concerns. A law school life coach knows exactly how to unravel the true you through self-awareness. He can assist you to become more mindful of your actions towards others and under different situations.
If having self-awareness is something you’re struggling with for quite some time, undergoing a law school life coaching is a great option for you.
#3 Empowers you to solve your problems
Oftentimes, law students already have a solution for their problems. They just needed a boost and guidance to unravel it. That’s exactly what law school life coaches do — they take you through each of these solutions by asking the proper/relevant questions.
Law school life coaching is a collaborative effort between the coach and the law student coachee. It’s not about the former dictating the solutions that the latter must adopt for a particular situation. This way, the coachee actively participates in solving his own problems, which, in turn, results to a more sustainable solution.
#4 Increases your self confidence
If you’re a law student or an aspiring one, you need not struggle to build your self-confidence to excel in law school and in your career as a future lawyer. One thing you can do is to engage the services of a law school life coach, who can help you build your confidence and self-esteem.
A law school life coach can help you with building a positive outlook in life by helping you unearth the root of your self-esteem/confidence problem. He is trained to throw mindful questions that will enable law students resolve their conflicts and have a positive self-image.
#5 It unloads your burdens, struggles, and anxiety
Most people dismiss the idea of life coaching because they believe having reliable and loyal friends is enough to get them through with their life.
While this is true, they fail to consider the fact that their friends (even their most trusted family member or relative) may not be available to help them all the time.
If this happens, who are you gonna call?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone objective and free of any bias to respond to you when you need to unload some baggage?
If you want someone to share your secrets, problems, or struggles with, in a prejudice-free environment, you can surely rely on a law school life coach to get the job done. Not only are they great listeners and trustworthy confidants, they even help come into terms with anything that burdens you or hampers your growth as an individual, so you can live a stress-free and more meaningful life.
#6 Unleashes your full potential as an individual
A law school life coach can help you explore your self and decode it so you can see through your untapped potentials, awaiting to be unleashed.
Just so you know, each of us is born with unique talents and other special abilities. Unfortunately, some of these gifts are not revealed until we stumble upon a particular situation.
You need not wait for a particular moment to unleash your greatest potentials. Through law school life coaching, allow your greater self to emerge so you can excel in all aspects of your life — not just in law school.
#7 Law school life coaching helps you set your life goals
Attending law school can definitely turn your world upside down. This can make you feel like you’re lossing control, or it can leave you feeling stuck, defeated, and miserable. And when you experience any or all these, planning ahead and setting your life goals can definitely be a uphill climb.
Sounds familiar, eh?
Well, it is for these reasons that I encourage you, once again, to try law school life coaching. Accordingly, your law school life coach can help you adopt healthier habits and responses instead of getting stuck with your old self-defeating or counterproductive ways. He can also provide clarity in your life, which will then allow you to set definite and practicable goals that you can achieve through your inner strength and special abilities.
