We believe that being a life coach is really similar to being a superhero.
Each life coach is unique, like a superhero. They all dedicate their whole life helping people. Each with their own personal origin story and a special “superpower” they use to help others.
Most often, their superpower is first their greatest obstacle, and once they go through their own personal metamorphosis, they develop a skills to help others do the same. They uncover a truth that was within them all along. They transmute their flaws into their greatest strength.
Whatever it is, it’s a transformational process extremely similar like that of a Superhero.
And just like with the Avengers, we went on a mission to find all the unique life coaches with huge potential from all around the world and bring them together as the Earth’s Mightiest Supercoaches.
Levente Rikter is one of the coaches we found and we did a little interview with him. He impressed us with his adventurous origin story and his drive to help people awaken the life within them. Here is what he said.
Meet Life Coach Levente Rikter:
Name: Levente Rikter
Pillar: The Spirit
Who is this coach for: For anyone who wants to live more fulfilled and meaningful life.
How they can help: He will help you dive deep into your self and find your purpose.
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?
I’m good, thank you. Brothers and parents are also being well which I’m really grateful for.
How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
The way I see it, it made them much more insecure. But this also helped them to put more focus on themselves and made them think about the real values in life.
Now everybody appreciates more their relationships, their health, their communities, their inner power. Personal growth stepped up as a purpose or tool in seeking happiness.
There was a drop in clients after the first panic in the world. People are much more conscious about their money now, but still more and more are realizing that actually investing in a coaching program is investing in their real happiness. It’s the new way of creating a meaningful life.
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
It’s all down to where we keep our focus. Outside, on the problems or inside and on the solutions or positive things. Be aware of where you point your focus, your attention.
Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
It was a long journey from a small Hungarian town, but the life in London, the the active charity work and the Uganda Marathon’s adventure made me come alive. The marathon on the Equator; as a non runner!; was an amazing challenge.
That’s when I became conscious about this drive, that feeling, that desire. I have a lust for a life that rocks.
In Hungary I used to lead a youth organization, in London I was participating in the “Under One Sky” movement looking after the homeless, volunteering for the “Say Yes More” movement to bring an adventurous and positive mindset to the people who are willing to change for the better with storynights, Yestival, wildcamps, etc. In my official work I also dealt with people.
In Africa I ran and helped organizing the Uganda Marathon, then in Hungary I had series of storytelling nights called “Lust For Life Stories” to inspire people.
In my daily work I also work with people: I support the ones who reach out to rock their biggest adventures and personal journeys. I lead them through a transformative process to get to the next level.
So, I realized I can inspire people through community work, through my adventures or just being there for them and I can do more for them as a coach. I lived in Bali back then.
Through schools, mentors, trainings I managed to make the transition to become an action coach.
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
I had some big obstacles that I chose, like moving to London as a foreigner and settle in, running the Uganda Marathon in Africa, leaving a good life in London for Thailand and for making it more memorable. They all shaped me and I shaped myself consciously taking on those challenges.
Recently the biggest one is getting back up from a huge knockdown that I got by getting divorced. That was a big slap, a huge trauma and I learnt a lot about getting up on my feet. But not only I shaped who I am now, but put together a new program for those who feel completely down and lost.
I’m much more now and be able to help others to overcome their biggest adversities.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
In short, I make them feel more grounded.
We work together towards their goals and for them the fundamental for this is always finding appreciation for themselves, finding inner power, finding inner motivation and finding presence, meaning in the present moment.
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
Now with deep conversations and challenges I support people to rock their lives, their biggest dreams and transform their journey into something more authentic, more fulfilled.
I help them to find their inner purpose and actually I lead them back to themselves. We always look for insights and use our inspiration to act upon to make our life better, happier, more successful.

Growth in self worth, courage, confidence;
Deeper and more loving connections with themselves and with life itself;
Deeper focus, higher productivity;
Better quality in their relationships;
Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?
I like paper and pen.
Working on ourselves is often happening on a piece of paper.
But other than this I believe in the power of action. From my side deep listening and fearless coaching.
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
It all starts within. You’re responsible for your shining. Keep it up!
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
When you are able to control your focus and put your attention on the good things, you care about something bigger than yourself and keep investing in your own self awareness, self growth, your whole life grows. And not just yours.
Your final thoughts?
It’s about creating a life that is worth to remember, our own reality.
It’s a journey. A feeling. A lust for fulfillment, for making it a life that rocks.
It’s simply questioning ourselves, facing our inner truth in order to tap into our unlocked full potential.
This Lust For Life can be found in everybody even if our life is lived by the norms on autopilot. Everyone has the freedom to choose and live a life according to their own terms, reaching their own dreams.
Every significant change in our lives starts within with a deep conversation and taking action, even the tiniest ones, that’s where the transformation happens.
Start looking, start going deep fearlessly, take action and most of all, enjoy your life.
