You probably know someone who seems to have it all, and you have probably struggled to shop for them. They have anything and everything that they have supposedly ever wanted and their expensive hobbies are just too far out of a realistic price range.
While shopping for the person who has it all can be challenging, life coaching is the holiday gift that keeps on giving by enhancing their life in ways that they could never have even imagined.
Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why coaching is the perfect gift.
Experiences Are the Best Gifts
If you take a look at recent gift guides in your favorite magazines and newspapers, you will likely see all sorts of recommendations for luxury items, from designer fragrances to the latest technology. But more and more people have started to give (and receive) experiences instead of material items. According to science, experiences make gift recipients happier than a shiny watch or sleek designer bag. There are a few reasons for this. One is that your brain simply becomes accustomed to a new item faster than it does a new experience. While that new and exciting car or piece of jewelry can lose its luster pretty quickly, the excitement that accompanies a new experience can last for weeks, months, or even years.
Additionally, gift recipients are less likely to give experiences the comparison treatment. This means that while your gift recipient might compare the new set of golf clubs you purchased for them against the clubs that they picked out for themselves months ago, they are less likely to do so with a memorable spa retreat or a unique cooking class.
Who Is the Coaching Experience Best Suited for?
The experience of a coaching session — or the experience of multiple coaching sessions — can have a high and sometimes immediate return on investment. Coaching can touch on a range of factors in the recipient’s life, from their career to their personal relationships to their physical and mental health. If you’re opting to gift the person on your life who has it all with an experience this season, you’d be hard-pressed to find one as impactful as life coaching.
That person who has everything likely doesn’t have everything. They may not have ambition and big goals. They may not have a fulfilling career. They may not have real passion for anything in their life. Coaching can help them find exactly what it is they need.
In short, coaching makes an excellent gift for anyone who feels ready to embark on their next challenge, who feels unsettled in their career or personal life, or who feels a little lost as to what they want in the future.
Four Ways Coaching Can Enhance Your Gift Recipient’s Life
What can you expect your gift recipient to get out of the coaching experience if you decide to go this route for your holiday gifts? Well, for starters, as Entrepreneur and Forbes report, coaching will help your recipient in the following ways…
1. Set and Reach Goals
If your recipient has a bit of an issue with directing their life’s path, a coach can help them identify what exactly they’re working towards, why they want to work towards it, and how they can get there. A coach can also help them learn to handle multiple career and personal responsibilities simultaneously.
2. Take Control
Before your gift recipient can start working towards their goals, they need to take control of their own life, and this is something a coach can help with as well. This can be especially useful if your gift recipient has recently experienced a period of negative work or life events, or if they’ve experienced a period of stagnancy.
3. Develop a Better Mindset
Maybe your gift recipient wants to reach certain goals, but they haven’t learned to believe in their own potential. Maybe their daily outlook is grim. With a change of mindset, they could change everything in their life. A life coach can teach them valuable skills for reframing their circumstances so that they can learn to look at life from a new perspective and stop standing in the way of their own success.
4. Find Support
Not everyone is fortunate enough to be surrounded by a support system, and it’s even rarer for someone to have multiple support systems for their career, personal life, and passions. Maybe your gift recipient gets tons of support from their family and friends in their personal life, but they get little support in the workplace. Maybe they’re trying to branch out and follow their true passions, but they have little support when it comes to leaving their more stable circumstances or a long-standing career. A life coach can provide this much-needed support.
