Normal Coaching

The whole concept of normal coaching is based on the tenets of  the Human Potential Movement, which arose in the 1960’s and is based on humanistic teaching. The belief behind normal coaching is that each person has unlimited potential within themselves to achieve whatever they dream. The Focus of normal coaching is Self Actualization. Most coaches work with the client’s thought processes, examining those processes to find those patterns and beliefs which do not serve the client, and then supporting them to those patterns and beliefs to ones which do support them to achieve what they want to achieve. Many Coaches claim that their clients experience transformation as a result of their coaching, and this is because a significant change in perspective will bring about what appears to be a transformation in outlook and behaviour. Most Coaching is based on Psychology and/or New Age teachings. The coach is trained to take a neutral stance and to be led purely by the clients agenda. The Coach has no agenda of their own.  

FocusOnPurpose Coaching

Paul tells us in Romans 12 that we are not to be conformed to the world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, and from this perspective, FocusOnPurpose is similar to normal coaching. However, this is where the similarity would end. Paul also tells us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  FocusOnPurpose coaches with a clear and overt agenda - and that agenda is to bring your thoughts into alignment with God’s thoughts so that you may begin to see things from His perspective. It is when you begin to see from God’s perspective that you are able to begin to walk on water. In Viktor Frankl’s famous book “Man’s Search For Meaning,” he said : “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how.' " When you start changing your perspective, and look through the lens of faith to a Good, Loving, all-wise, all-powerful God, you can begin to walk upon the storm-driven waters of our life instead of being engulfed by them. The focus of FocusOnPurpose Coaching is the renewal of your mind so that your thoughts support your faith and together they lead you to the Rock that is higher than you. FocusOnPurpose coaches with a clear standard, measuring thoughts and beliefs against the truth of God’s timeless Word. Using this plumb-line, FocusOnPurpose looks for those subtle lies which sabotage your thinking and your faith and which block you from accessing all that is available to you through Jesus Christ. FocusOnPurpose then works with you to replace those untruths with the solid rock of God’s Word so that you may stand firm in your faith and achieve the full purpose for which you have been called. God has purchased you with an extremely high price; you are precious in His sight. He draws you with cords of love and longs for intimate relationship with you; it is in the intimacy of this relationship that you find you are walking on water.
