Can anyone recommend good resources for life coaching that would be all encompassing -- career, family, health, etc.?


John Larch Fayetteville, NC

I'm interested in working with someone who can help guide me to be the best version of me that I can be. Although I've been out of the military for a few years, I feel like my transition is still on-going and I have yet to find the right balance in my life and the right career trajectory. Thanks for any recommendations, suggestions, or advice.

It is unlikely to get some one at that dedicated level as volunteer.
So, self motivating is next best. Given your thoughtful wide approach ask.
Top would be an unleash power within seminar by Tony Robbins, paired with his book, awaken giant within.
Or with evaluation tests, your pocket life coach by Carole gaskell is pretty good

If you check out some of the articles I've posted on this site or visit, you'll discover that part of my career coaching includes a heavy focus on assessment. It's interesting because I remember the heavy emphasis testing had at the beginning of my Army experience (Vietnam era drafted), particularly how the test results positively impacted my assignments.

There are many assessment options but I typically make sure that strengths, emotional intelligence, and personality are measured -- and most importantly understood as part of career and leadership coaching.

I didn't serve as long as you did, but have been out much longer,
and sometimes I feel in similar ways. It might just be a common feeling.
Probably you could join a veteran's organization to find some camaraderie
to share your feelings with.
Some are listed under this section of my EE webpage:

There are life style coaches who might impress what they think is best for you, that you could listen too & might get some good advice from.
I've added links to information & videos under this section of my EE webpage.

The choices of family, health and career trajectory are disparate, but not independent.
(Work life balance, stress, not enough money, interpersonal relationships)

For health, eat a healthy diet & get plenty of exercise,
some focused on building strength, others (aerobic)
for endurance and coordination (sports)
Avoid drugs, alcohol & other vices.
Get the book "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman and read it.
I don't follow it that strictly.
Diet also depends on what your body can handle.
Make annual visits to a physician for checkups,
You could probably use the VA for a physician.

For career, check out the website
and look up careers that interest you.

Add training & schooling as necessary

For Family, try to be honest, try to do your best.
