Differences between mental coaches and psychologists
Her friend is a mental coach and blogs about what she hears. A mental coach is a profession similar to a psychologist, but while the mental coach aims to actively support and coach in order to achieve the goal, the psychologist has specific mental and physical problems. The purpose is to solve the problem through dialogue. A mental coach is a qualification that can be obtained by those who have studied at a university (private university) for 3 years and have met the graduation requirements, and it requires a high tuition fee of about 10,000 euros and tremendous effort to obtain it. Mental coaching is still a lesser-known job, but it’s an area that’s been getting a lot of attention lately. Mental coaches are very useful partners for athletes, entrepreneurs, and others who have specific goals and want to achieve them. It’s like a companion who runs a marathon to the goal together. On the other hand, psychologists have the impression that they untie intricately entwined threads. Both are on the side of those who have dreams, and their value is being understood in recent years. The number of mental coaches is so small that more people will understand their name and need as they become mental coaches.
Mental coach talks about “SMART’s Law”
SMART’s Law is a compilation of the five things you need to achieve your goals. Setting goals based on this will greatly increase the feasibility of the goals.
S means specifico or “clarity”. The goal should be something like “to lose 5 kilos” rather than something vague like “I want to be beautiful”. When clear, the goal is more specific and easier to see if it has been achieved.
M means misurabile or “measurable”. The goal should be measurable, such as “run along the river for an hour a day,” rather than “do your best to exercise.” In that case, you can easily measure the distance between your goal and yourself, such as “I exercised for 45 minutes today, so let’s exercise for another 15 minutes.”
A means achievabile or “achievable”. Goals should not be influenced by others, such as “becoming a loved one and a lover,” but should be feasible with your own efforts, such as “confessing love to your favorite person.” By doing so, you will not have to say, “I tried my best, but the other person wouldn’t try to be my lover,” and my goal would be more under my control.
R means raggingibile or “reachable”. If a person who currently weighs 70 kilograms sets a goal of “lossing 40 kilograms a month,” losing weight can lead to loss of physical and mental health, which is more important than weight, and an eating disorder. It may become. And most of all, it’s unlikely to be possible. Therefore, you should change to a feasible goal, such as “lose 10 kilograms in a year.” Doing so will make it more feasible and a healthy goal.
T means tempicato, that is, “set a time limit”. Even if you have the goal of “starting a business,” it’s easy to make an excuse to yourself that “this wasn’t feasible for a variety of reasons.” Therefore, “We will raise funds with collaborators by March 2022, complete the procedures for Partita IVA and Codice Fiscale by June, establish a company by September, and actually start activities by December.” You should set goals according to time, such as. By doing so, you can judge that “It is August now and the procedure has not been completed yet! You should hurry.”
If you keep the above, you will be able to achieve your goals surprisingly. And it’s important that your goals are concrete, feasible, and never give up. That power and strength resides in us. Making the most of that potential is the easiest and most feasible way to achieve your goals. We already have the resources. All you have to do is make use of it. I sincerely wish you all the best in achieving your goals.
