How an Average Guy Became His OWN Life Coach (And How You Can Too)

Lachlan Brown, founder of Hack Spirit

RE: Why my search for a life coach led me to becoming my own one
Hi. I'm Lachlan Brown from Hack Spirit.

I’m also a (ridiculously) average guy.

I’ve never been one to try and find meaning in religion or spirituality. When I feel rudderless, I want practical solutions.

I look to guidance from eastern philosophy and success stories.

And yes, I sometimes look to celebrities.

Not entitled actors or beautiful pop stars, but people in the public eye who are the very best at what they do.

And it seems that over the last few years a lot of famous people are raving about one thing.

Life coaches.

Bill Gates, Anthony Robbins, Andre Agassi, Oprah and countless other big names have been going on and on about how much life coaches have helped them.

I figured — why not? What have I got to lose?

I’m all about finding practical ways to improve my lot in life.

I wanted to see what life coaches were all about...

But my search was short lived

The first thing I did was google “what is a life coach?”. I kid you not.

First result: a life coach is a person who helps a client develop by identifying strengths and weaknesses, and helping them overcome adversity.

Sounds great.

Next thing I googled: “How much does a life coach cost?”

Answer: yikes! A bit too much!

Look: I hate feeling rudderless. But I hate feeling penniless even more.

I needed a way to orient my life AND not break the bank in the process.

And that’s when I stumbled upon the perfect solution...

You can actually be your own life coach

I needed to reorient myself. I needed to give my life direction.

I figured out those things myself.

If I got myself into this mess, and I was the one who realized it — then I knew that it would be me who got myself out of this funk.

So I set about becoming my own life coach.

My optimism was definitely in the right place, but I needed the right tools for the job. Remember, I was the guy who googled “what is a life coach;”

I’m not exactly an expert in the field.

So I searched for “become your own life coach” and eventually came upon an amazing guide to this exact methodology.

It’s called Be Your Own Life Coach: 10 Steps to a Successful Life by Jeanette Devine.

These 10 steps outlined by Jeanette really helped me identify what was causing my life to feel directionless.

It helped me figure out my own strengths.

It helped me reorient my mindset to figure out both “where I am right now” and “where I want to be”.


Through a series of simple, yet powerful, soul searching exercises.

The first step to reorienting your life

The first step to reorienting my life was journaling. That’s right — simply writing my life down.

Jeanette Devine asks you to do a simple task: “Jot down up to three goals, but no more.”

I really connected with this. I appreciated having to focus my attention.

So many times, we’re told “everything is a priority,” meaning that “nothing is a priority.”

But by only topping off at “three goals,” I had to consciously get rid of things that weren’t a priority, paving the way for me to figure out what was really important for me to achieve.

Try it: List three goals. No more.

You’ll be surprised at what you find.

Clarifying my core values

This was another critical component for me — and something that I recommend to everyone.

Figure out what your core values are!

You need to figure out what you have, deep down inside, that is immovable. That is innate.

Once you know what you can’t remove, you know who you are — deep down.

You have your foundation.

From there, you can build yourself up as a person.

Where do you want to go?

This was the last big thing: where I wanted to go. I had to “create a compelling vision of my future.”

A future that I had no idea about.

I had my values — I had my goals — but what was my future?

Luckily, Jeanette’s book shows you how to coach yourself through this!

She gives you two great techniques — one of which I’ll tell you now.

She asks you to write your own eulogy.


It scared me at first. I don’t want to think about death.

But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. My life is finite. If I’m going to live a life of purpose, I need to embrace this.

I need to choose to live my life to the fullest.

So I started writing.

I wrote the fullest, most jam-packed eulogy I could muster. Everything I’d want someone to say about me, I threw it in.

And at the end: I was left with it: my vision for the future.

Reaching out to life coach Jeanette Devine

After reading Jeanette Devine’s eBook, I reached out to her to say thanks.

A few emails later and it was obvious she and I were aligned in a lot of ways.

Both in our passion for self-improvement and our interest in sharing practical advice with a wider audience.

So we agreed that we would sell her book exclusively on the Hack Spirit website and at a heavily discounted price.

I have already written eBooks on Buddhism, mindfulness, and mental toughness, and I was thrilled to be able to add one on being your own life coach.
