“The way you do one thing in your life is how you do everything” ~ Richard Bandler, the founder of Neurolinguistic Programing:
Have you fully considered the impact of this statement. For instance, If you say you’re going to take care of your physical health by exercising, and you stop after 3 weeks, notice that pattern in other areas of your life.
Chances are this is a common theme in your life.
Let me explain. As humans, we are habit driven. You may want extraordinary things, but to make your life extraordinary, you have to stop your world first.
This is vital.
Once you stop your world, you can change yourself.
To stop your world, it’s vital you start thinking about these questions
Carl Jung said that until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
When my client Brenda, a high level executive came to see me, she was balancing a high power job and parenting 2 young kids. She felt overwhelmed, overworked and trapped in her job.
Despite her success, she didn’t feel like she was doing anything well. She was working long hours, working hard, feeling frustrated with her family and then feeling guilty about it. At work, she would often find herself unable to say ‘no’. She would often lie awake at night or wake up at odd hours with her mind churning with to-do lists.
Brenda was at the end of her ropes when she started working with me using my NEW You Blueprint. She was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She couldn’t prioritize what to give up, what to do more of, her old coping mechanisms of physical exercises and meditation weren’t working well. She felt like a bad parent, not a great boss and was feeling like a failure in her life.
Through our work together, Brenda was able to commit to living life on her terms.
Soon, with all the internal and external changes she made, Brenda got the CEO position she had been wanting to get for years, had more time to go to her children’s soccer games, to be home for dinner and bedtime, and most importantly she re-discovered herself. By knowing herself, she was able to use her strengths, and change her perceptions of her limitations. By recognizing that everything she thought about herself was just a story, she could change her stories about herself.
What’s possible for Brenda is possible for you.
Until you realize that your thoughts are extraordinarily powerful, you’ll continue to be stuck.
