What is a Coach?

The most obvious comparison is the athlete/coaching relationship. Regardless if a person plays in intermural or local sports, competes in the Olympics or plays a sport professionally, every athlete understands the importance of sound coaching. It isn’t about whether you as the player are good or bad – it’s about building and strengthening what is already there to be even better than you already are! Hear me: you are not broken, messed up or useless. Those are lies. The truth: you are a masterpiece (see my intro video for more on that!).

A good coach has an overall understanding of the game and what it takes to be successful in general, but a great coach has that same understanding AND the ability to look at each player individually. They possess the insight and tools to break down the mechanics of the player’s form into smaller parts – temporarily separating them out to fine tune and strengthen them.

Divine Perspective Coaching is framed around four core beliefs that capture both the “big picture” and the “individual”:

  1. The Word of God is the only way to accurately separate soul from spirit, and bone from marrow (body) – Hebrews 4:12.
  2. Everyone is beautifully created and has a Divine purpose (Ephesians 2:10). You were created for something and that something was uniquely created for you. Everything about you – your hopes, dreams desires, life experiences, strengths and weaknesses: they all point to that purpose.
  3. Combining scriptural truth with cognitive behavior theory (the study of why and how you think and act) will align your spirit, soul and body with the purposes of God and result in the “abundant life” promised in John 10:10.
  4. False messages and lies that you have received throughout your life, especially during your younger years, very often knocks you off course, clouds your ability to see your purpose, and casts doubt about whether you are even “good enough,” “smart enough,” “old/young enough”, etc… Often times those thoughts sound practical and wise, but in the end, they are simply excuses to not take the risk or to trust the Lord has a plan and to believe that the plan is good.

As a Coaching client, you will:

  1. Develop an understanding of who you are to God, and how your life story, including your passions, joys, and heartaches, all point to your purpose.
  2. Discover what “success” or the “abundant life” looks like for you – did you know it isn’t the same for everyone?
  3. Affirm your known strengths and discover others that you haven’t yet been made aware of.
  4. Establish real and measurable goals that will get you back onto the right trajectory leading to success.
  5. Learn new skills and tools that you can apply now and, in the future, to conquer the mountains standing between you and the abundant life you were promised.

You already have what it takes…the question now becomes, are you ready to get started?
