20 Life-Changing Lessons Every Woman needs to hear
If you’re a woman, life can sometime feel you are on one big roller coaster ride.
There are so many challenges we face – from trying to understand our female brain, to managing motherhood and working at the same time. Furthermore, we get pulled in so many directions it can make our head spin!
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and alone, so having support and accountability is key. This is where life coaching comes in. A life coach can help us navigate these hard waters and learn the life-changing lessons we need to hear, especially when life becomes challenging.
With this purpose in mind, let me share what I have learned as a life coach for women. These are 20 life-changing lessons every woman needs to hear.
Understanding the female brain
1. You are not alone
There are other women out there who understand what you’re going through. Seeing that we don’t have to go solo, reach out to a friend today.
2. Your life is not a competition
Comparison is the thief of joy. Sooner or later you realize that it is a waste of time, so focus on your own life and the journey.
3. It’s okay to ask for help
In fact, it’s essential. We can’t do everything ourselves, so reach out to your support system when you need it.
4. Your thoughts create your reality
Be mindful of the self-talk you allow into your mind, as it will shape your life experiences.
5. Life is a balance of challenges
Embrace the good and the bad, and know that both are temporary. Besides, wallowing in self pity will only keep you stuck.
6. You are in control of your life
Undeniably no one else can live it for you, so make choices that align with your values and goals.
7. Change is inevitable
Consequently change will happen whether or not you are ready. Lean into it, and be open to new experiences and opportunities.
8. Your intuition is always guiding you
Listen to it, and trust that it will lead you to where you need to be. To emphasize, your spirit is constantly leading you so lean in and listen.
9. There is no such thing as perfect
Accept yourself – flaws and all – and extend that same grace to others.
10. Life is a gift
Cherish every moment and take nothing for granted. No one of us knows when it is time to go.
11. Your thoughts and emotions are valid
It’s okay to feel angry, sad, frustrated, or scared. These emotions are normal and perfectly natural. The key is not to let them drive your decisions.
12. It’s okay to make mistakes
Not surprisingly we all do it, but what is important is that you learn from them and move on.
13. Forgiving yourself
It is a gift to yourself as it releases you to move on to other things. We all mess up sometimes, but dwelling on our mistakes only keeps us from achieving our goals.
14. You are stronger than you think you are
You never know how much you are capable of until you’re tested. No matter what life throws your way, above all you have the strength to handle it.
15. Your challenges do not define you
Since life throws us curveballs, it doesn’t mean we have to let them define us. Reframing them as opportunities and not punishments will help you learn valuable lessons.
16. You have a voice
Whenever you may be in doubt, remember as a 21st-century woman, you are entitled to share your opinion, even if others disagree.
17. You have the power to change your life
In truth, taking 100% responsibility for your life puts you in the driver’s seat. You decide where you want to go.
18. You are worthy of love and respect
No matter what you have experienced in your past, know that you are worthy of love and respect. God, in His graciousness, made you to be loved and to seek love.
19. Your thoughts create your reality
Be mindful of the self-talk you allow into your mind, as it will shape your life experiences. Not to mention your thoughts will trigger your emotions.
20. Life is a journey
Life is not a final destination, so you may as well enjoy the ride! There will be difficulties, but the key is to decide to enjoy the process. On the contrary, seeing life as a punishment or a chore will only make much more challenging.
Challenges do not define you
Consequently, we need to remember that you have the power to change your life. Even if you find yourself in the messy middle, know that it is only for a season and you will get through it.
To sum it up, these are just a few of the many lessons we can learn from life coaching. Coaching can help you learn even more life-changing lessons that will help you design the life you want to live.
With this in mind, if you’re ready to take your life to the next level, consider working with a coach. It could be the best decision you ever make!
