What does that mean?
There are a few essential steps to assure success and while the basics are the same (know your vision, see it clearly in your mind’s eye and take determined action to move in that direction), I find that I add elements to this list for each person I coach. It might be to:
- Clear their thinking about _______
- Change routine way of doing ______
- Or wherever else I see intuitively you are getting in your way.
Sometimes people can hear what I see and sometimes they cannot. It depends on how attached someone is familiar ways of being, doing or thinking. We can be unconscious to ourselves.
If we want something new or different then change is required. That change can be on a number of levels. It could be a change in our thinking, our routine, habits, pastime ways of doing things and wherever we are set in our ways.
Working with business owners and professionals we name everything they do that supports their success and what they do that gets in their way. It is fascinating to unravel this. Mostly we don’t realize that we are in our own way. Our way of being is just so much a part of our unconsciousness.
The most common way that we get in our own way (and it is becoming more prevalent) is our attachment to email and social media. A large part of our time can get lost in these two places taking our attention off our vision and our goals and placing it squarely on what others have to say, want from us or something that we find interesting.
- Know your vision of success.
- See it clearly in your mind’s eye (meditate on it because seeing is different than thinking).
- Take determined action.
- Then I add my suggestions specific to you. It may be getting focused because there is too much grabbing your attention.
- You are multitasking and not achieving your goals.
- Maybe I’ll see that you are really really busy but not achieving your vision of success. Busy does not create success.
There are others ways as well but I would have to talk with you to know what those are for you. You probably know some of them but not all because you are unconscious to them.
Most important is to know you must change! How you are now, how you think, how you spend your time and the energy level you do it from is creating precisely what you have in present time which may be fine but if you want something different then your energy and patterns have to change.
How are you getting in your own way? Know the changes you can make to support your success.
I saw two videos recently that for me show these dichotomies. One is a dancer. He reminds me to let energy move, let things change, lighten up and let go.
The other is much more serious report on how distorted our thinking can become. How we can work without awareness. Here they are. Enjoy!
Best wishes on your success, Kay
