Self-Coaching Tip: Begin Where You Are
To celebrate the New Year, I’m using my self-coaching skills to
transcend the historical practice of reflecting upon the past year and
choosing goals for the New Year. Instead, I begin where I am.
Think of it like the directory in a shopping mall. There’s usually a
map of all the stores with a big red dot that reads, ‘you are here.’
In order to get to the shop you want, you need to know where you are
in relation to it.
I need to know which beliefs are holding me back and which beliefs are helping me move forward. need the guidance that my emotions hold for me. And finally, I need to communicate with my body to make permanent, lasting changes that are easy and effortless
Once I’m clear about where I am, really connected to myself on all three levels (physically, emotionally, mentally), something wondrous happens: .
Co-creating takes me to a new place of connection. Instead of focusing on what I’ve accomplished (a left brain activity) or floating contentedly in a meditative state (a right brain activity), I reach a balance between both sides of my brain. In this state, I see new possibilities to solving any problems I have; experience deeper connections in my relationships; and receive guidance for continued self-growth and spiritual evolution.
So, I invite you to begin this New Year by focusing on where you are, right now. When you truly know where you are at, you’ll see/hear/know where you’re going this year.
