We all get cloudy thinking sometimes. We all get off track. And sometimes we've never stopped to think what we REALLY want or how we'll know when we've got that. The power of a pause is enormous and that's what coaching offers you. The space to reflect and get clear...
I wanted to swing by and talk to you about owning your power. What are you struggling with?
What are your challenges in your life just now, and are you denying them?
Are you denying your struggles?
Are you denying your challenges?
Because here’s the thing.
Until you own it, you can’t change it.
The power of owning where you are RIGHT now is enormous, because that’s all any of us have got.
So, no matter what is going on for you, reflect on it, figure out where exactly you are, and just stand proud there to say, “You know something? What’s going on is what’s going on”. And THEN decide where you want to go, because a wonderful thing is, where you are right now is pure and simply in some way the combination of all the previous decisions you have made in your life up until now, and sometimes where you are right now, is just a result of quite a few of life’s wonderful curve balls and there’s nothing at all you can do about it. And so many of us beat ourselves up. So many of us feel really bad about the situation we are in, and NONE of that helps at all.
The only thing that helps is just admitting,
I am where I am. This is my situation right now, and then DO something about it if you want things to change.
So, my short and sweet invitation to you today is, guess what? Own it.
- If you are not experiencing in the life and work that you really truly want to yet, own that.
- If you have not got that relationship so you really want in your life as it stands right now, own that.
- If your health and well-being isn’t where you want it to be, own that, and then do something about it.
This conversation came up because I was talking about my wee mum, and for those of you who know, when I was growing up, my mum didn’t keep well, her mental health wasn’t great. She had a thing called schizophrenia, which made it really tough work growing up with her. But you know what was really tough?
It wasn’t her mental ill health at all. It was the fact that she didn’t own it.
So, when times were tough for her, and there was numerous times when life was really really tough for her, and life was very very confusing for her, at no point, did she step up and own it.
So, afterwards, she would just be embarrassed and she would put her head in the sand, and it was very very confusing for us as children, and actually very confusing for me as an adult, because she never owned it.
And that’s the thing. It really doesn’t matter what’s going on…it’s your mind monkeys of how other people would respond, and the irony is they are probably feeling your denial. And the wonderful thing is, other people love you, they care for you and they just want you to take your head out of the sand as well.
So, do that. Just own it.
No matter what happens and what’s going on for you, accept it first, because when you stop reisisiting ou can can spend that energy DOING something about it.
Own your power, take it back because every single second that you are not standing there admitting, “I am where I am”, you are giving away your power as to where, also how you can move forward.
Think about it as a sat nav. Your life as a sat nav. You need to know where you are right now, to program it properly to take you wherever you want to go.
If you don’t know where you are right now, the sat nav cannot tell you, cannot help you move forward and get you where you really want to be.
So, admit it you are where you are, and that is okay even if you don’t like it.
Own it and move forward.
