Why I love my job as a positive psychology practitioner and self-leadership coach
As a Positive Psychology Practitioner and Self-Leadership Coach, I have the privilege of helping people to improve their mental well-being and achieve their personal and professional goals. This work is both fulfilling and rewarding, and I am passionate about what I do.
In this week's article, I wanted to share with you why I love this part of my job so much and why I believe that Positive Psychology and Self-Leadership coaching are more important for people today than ever before. But first, let's take a closer look at what they actually are.
What is positive psychology?
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of what makes life worth living. It focuses on the strengths, virtues, and positive emotions that contribute to well-being, resilience, and optimal functioning. Positive Psychology interventions aim to enhance an individual's positive experiences, relationships, and personal growth, and to build their resilience to cope with life's challenges. It helps people to cultivate a positive outlook on life, build their strengths, and increase their happiness and well-being.
Positive psychology helps people understand WHAT to strive for in life - if they want it to be one that feels true to themselves and meets THEIR version of happiness.
What is self-leadership?
Self-Leadership, on the other hand, is about taking control of your own life, developing your own personal vision, and leading yourself towards your desired outcomes. It's about becoming the best version of yourself and creating a life that aligns with your values and aspirations. Self-Leadership is about developing the skills and attitudes necessary to be successful, fulfilled, and happy, both in your personal and professional life.
Self-leadership is the ultimate self-influence and helps people understand HOW to put their flourishing goals into action so they become their new reality.
Here are some of the reasons why I love my job as a Positive Psychology Practitioner and Self-Leadership Coach:
