You know that you are meant to be doing something much bigger than you do now. You are even scared to say it out loud because no one would understand. Well, bring in your biggest dreams and your biggest fears and I will help you get there faster than you ever thought possible.
Time and time again I come across very smart people who would like to take their current role in their career to the next stage or double the income in their business, take on more responsibility, make a bigger impact, get more recognition, make more money …..you name it.
Most people come to me with very rigid lines in their mind about who they are, what they can and can’t do. And some of them even tell me that their challenge is that they need to be able to communicate better, write better emails, have more confidence, network more…and the list goes on.
As if they knew for sure that if they ‘did’ something different, they would have everything that they don’t have. Or if they stopped ‘doing’ some things, the challenges they are facing would go away.
And then they would be happier, have better people around them, be less stressed, take more vacations, make more money, make a bigger impact, etc.
So, the moment that they feel like something is missing their first idea is to upskill, do another course, a certification, a degree, work faster, work better, be more ‘productive’, manage time better, learn ‘persuasion’, “Win friends and influence people”, etc.
But very few people stop to ask themselves the question……
” What if I don’t have to ‘DO’ anything different?….”
“What if I’m not missing anything?”
“What if it’s about doing exactly the opposite of what I’ve been ‘DOING’ all this time….”
What if it’s got less to do with doing…and more to do with how you are BEING?
What if it’s not another skills you need to pick or a course you need to do, another seminar that you have to go to….
But what if…just by shifting who you are being…..you challenges would go away….?
Everything that you want that you don’t have…would appear in front of you….
Everything that you don’t want to have in your life…..would just disappear like magic….
And every problem that you think you feel stuck in….would become unstuck…
This has been the basis of my work since I started my profession (sure… the skills, the tactics and the strategies play a part in it) and the very moment somebody realise this, their whole world changes.
But you have to be willing to open your eyes and look at the world from a different lens. And stop making excuses for the lens you are already wearing.
Because everything that you have in your life is because of the way you’re being right now. And everything that you don’t want in your life, is because you’re being in a way of attracting them.
So, before you think of taking another course, start another degree, or a certification….ask yourself….
What challenges do I wish would go away?
What goals have I been struggling to get to?
How am I being around these challenges?
Is it time to change the lens?
