How To Make Sense Out Of Chaos In Your Life2 Comments
I spend a good amount of time involved in personal, executive and business coaching and I always get a this question -
“What do you actually DO in your coaching?”
Most folks just want to know the bigger “plan”, of how I work with their belief patterns, values, and ultimately re-arrange their life into a rhythm that better fits with their goals.
That’s the “coach” answer - the fun stuff that everyone likes to hear.
But that’s not the answer I give. What I really do is much more simple:
I ground you.
I cut through the B.S. and give you some solid truth to work with.
Think about it…
There’s always spin going on around you. The media is bending their stories to keep you watching. Your boss breathing down your neck for tomorrow’s deadline. And your kids… well there’s always 4 different stories for any incident involving kids.
Don’t get me wrong - I’m not saying that the world is lying to you.
In fact, deep down I truly believe that most people are generally “good” and try to treat you that way too.
Still, the truth is that almost everything you encounter during your day has been layered with other people’s opinions, agendas, and frankly, their moods in that moment.
No one is immune to it, and sometimes you just don’t know what’s going on around you.
When it happens to me, I dig into my NLP background, and one of the places I go right away is to get down and See It For What It Is. No More, No Less.
Here’s a simple trick you can use today to see things exactly as they are.
Every single situation you find yourself in, just ask:
“What’s really going on here?”
Cut through the clutter.
Close the door and think about it.
Get yourself out of the way.
going on here?”
I’ll be honest with you, you may not always like the answer. Every now and again you’re going to figure out that YOU are the reason the argument started, or the deadline was missed.
(Don’t turn on me yet - this is a GOOD THING.)
Staying grounded is a pretty simple concept that most people have forgotten. Most folks are so caught up in how fast the world is spinning and which season premier is on TV tonight that nobody knows what’s really going on.
When you ask this simple question you’ll be one of the few who actually understand what’s going on in any situation. Which, by the way, gives you ultimate power that flows effortlessly.
When you can honestly answer the question…
“What’s really going on here?”
…You’ll be able to trust yourself and act accordingly.
It’s either right or it’s wrong; it’s black or it’s white.
This is absolutely freeing
When you see things as they are right now in this minute, with no drama, no mess, and no “stuff” surrounding it, something magical happens.
You’ll feel it the minute you do it:
All the dreams, all the possibilities of what can be in the future become possible because…
You’ll now know exactly where you are. And if you know where you are, you can go anywhere, can’t you?
Give it a try today and be sure to let me know how it goes.
