3 Reasons You Will Want to Become a Certified Teen Motivation Coach
1/3/2022 by Chris Cobb
We’ve heard of Life Coaches, Sober Companions and other types of coaching and counseling for adults with addictions as well as those who simply want to replace unhealthy habits with healthy ones and live a more positive lifestyle; but what about the youth struggling with the same types of life issues? The Addictions Academy has this age group covered as well with the Internationally Certified Teen Motivation Coach (ICTMC) training it offers. Whether you have a friend or a loved one who is a teen that needs instruction on living better, or you want to help teens in your community or nation-wide, The Addictions Academy has you covered, and here are the top three reasons you may want to consider in becoming a Certified Teen Motivation Coach.
- Your own background:
Were you a troubled teen? Did your addiction start in the early years of your life, hanging with the wrong crowd or growing up in an unhealthy environment? Even if it wasn’t addiction, perhaps you weren’t taught the things required to be a motivated, hard-working individual later on in life. Whatever it may be, you’ve made it to where you are now, and maybe you recognize that it can be hard growing up in today’s world, and you want to help younger people who are where you once were, struggling to make a great future for themselves. As a Certified Teen Motivation Coach, you can help share your experience, strength, hope and wisdom to help others! Keep reading.
- Failure to Launch Syndrome:
If you’ve dealt with this or know people that struggle with Failure to Launch Syndrome, you know it can be mentally debilitating and hard to stay motivated in any way when someone is ‘stuck’ in the cycle. A Teen Motivation Coach can help those dealing with depression and anxiety, problems finding who they are or what they want to become (self-identity), and thinking they are not good enough to move up in life, aka self-loathing, as a result of social media or other implements that contribute to the detriment to self-image in today’s society.
- Parenting Issues:
Parenting styles such as Helicopter Parenting, Snowplow Parenting and Lawnmower Parenting have become a problem in some form or another in today’s generations. These originated from ‘leave no child behind’, an education concept and keep kids from learning how to deal with failure and come out of it stronger. As a Certified Teen Motivation Coach, you will be able to work with both the teen and the parent in order to uncover hidden talents and set healthy parental boundaries, expectations and teach how to follow through with action-based methods. Knowing the difference between failure and fear of success is one key factor in achieving goals, no matter how difficult they may seem in the beginning. You will teach parents the difference between helping achieve these goals, versus enabling.
