What is the vision of your ideal life? Have you have always dreamed of being an entrepreneur, musician, corporate executive, or world traveler? Is something is holding you back from your dreams? That is where a life coach comes in. Athletes have coaches that help them to greatness in sports, and Bellevue life coaches help their clients find success and satisfaction from their lifestyle. However, unlike in sports, life and wellness coaches do not focus on changing behaviors, like correcting a wild throwing arm. According to the International Coach Federation (ICF), they develop their clients' overall strengths and abilities.
