Why I decided to become a confidence coach

Published by Amaka Chibuzo-Obi on

This is my story, my journey into confidence coaching.

For as long as I can remember, I have always rooted for THE WOMAN!

The success and general wellbeing of women has been something of great concern to me. Having lost my mum at 8 years old and seeing the significant shift this made in, not just my life, but in the lives of so many people around me, I understood first hand, the utmost importance of a strong woman in the family.

And so, I was committed to helping women in any way I can to BE strong, stay strong and thrive strong.
I started Wivesroundtable in 2013 and by 2017, I had trained to be a Life Coach and Family Life Counselor. I was helping people diagnose problems in their marriages and relationships and giving them tools and strategies to solve these problems effectively. So, naturally, I thought marriage counselling would be my niche. And I did that for over 2 years, consistently and successfully.

But for some reason, I still felt like something was missing. Each time I helped a couple, I just felt like I was missing something. “What was I missing?” I couldn’t place my finger on it.

One day, after almost 3 years of helping marriages, I saw it! A lot of the women I had come in contact with through my radio show, or as clients where living unfulfilling, unsatisfying lives. Many told me they felt stuck, like they were running on a treadmill. After probing, I realized that many of these women had one thing in common – they didn’t feel good enough, strong enough or worthy enough to go after the things they REALLY wanted to do with their lives! They were dealing with lots of fear and doubt in their abilities and in people’s perception of them.

And this was affecting so many other things in their lives. It had a negative effect on their relationships/marriages, their businesses/careers and even their parenting!

And that’s when it hit me, to REALLY help marriages, I needed to help the women step into themselves and their power by building and growing self confidence and a healthy self esteem!! Because THAT is the basis of a happier, more fulfilling life!

And THAT is how I focused on Confidence Coaching for women. And now, I feel like a round peg in a jolly round hole, enjoying every minute of the work I do with my clients and ever so proud to see them tremendously evolve before my eyes in just 5 weeks!!

Because, the truth is that, many of the things we see to be issues and challenges in our lives, can be better tackled with a sense of self confidence.

Unlike many think, self confidence is NOT just about being bold and outspoken. Self confidence is trust in oneself, a conviction that one has the ability to meet life’s challenges and to succeed, and the willingness to act accordingly!

Confident people are resilient and teachable people, prone to succeeding at whatever they find to do.

Are you multi talented and confused in what your niche should be? This is my story. Don’t force it. Do what you’re doing now and allow the answer come to you, in its time!

I am Light! My duty is to shine and light up the world!
