We Only See What We Want To See…

It’s true… we only see what we want to see; even when we know differently. Here’s the proof… We know that the moon is a big round rock in space, and we know that the stars are millions and billions of miles away. But you try looking at the night sky and seeing anything other than a kind…

Goals

We coaches have to be very careful. Imagine Mother Theresa had gone to a coach and said “I’d really like to be successful” And the coach says “Great, what would you like to succeed at?” And Mother Theresa says “Feeding the poor and looking after them” And the coach says “That’s not success. You need to…

We Get To Choose

Sometimes, when we’re in the thick of it, we forget that we get to choose everything about how we show up. One of my Master Minders reported a few days ago that he’d been invited to take on a decent contract. His terms, made very clear at booking, are pre-payment only. The prospective client didn’t…

The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Let’s look at the Swastika for a moment… Show it to a European and they’ll probably get a little nervous. The symbol is synonymous with hate, fear, violence and dictatorship. However, if you show it to a Hindu, they’ll likely think of good fortune and auspiciousness. Show it to a Japanese person and they’ll think…

Relationships

I’ve always said I’m really pleased I’ve never taken drugs to numb my emotions. I’ve just used a string of failed relationships instead! (and at various times overeating, dubious preferences, alcohol, you name it… but no drugs, so that’s ‘good’) As I move into presence there’s something that has become truly obvious, and it relates…

NOBODY Knows What They’re Doing

I’ve spoken about this before and it bears repeating because it is so important. Rather than repeat my own words, I’ll hand over to Jason Leister (Incomparable Expert) for his excellent take on it… August 11, 2017 Mountains of Arizona Cloudy 70 Degrees 6:30 a.m. I imagine there are people out there who would rather…

Burn-Out

Why do we burn out? It’s often because we care. We don’t want to let anyone down, and we take on more responsibilities than we can reasonably handle. (If we don’t do it, nobody else will, right?) But there’s another factor, and that becomes clear after we burn out. That’s the point where we show ourselves a “red…

16 Personalities

There are all these ‘tests’ all over the place… what kind of person are you? How do you act in such-and-such situation? One of the most well-known is probably Meyers-Briggs, and there is an excellent rendition of the test (with seriously good reporting, all for free) at: 16personalities.com (even if you think you know your…

Self-Selection

There are those who complain about the ‘successful’ which is interesting because everything is available to these complainers to follow suit (or find their own ‘success’ path). But even if you lay out the instructions in fine detail and list the tasks required and the order to do them in, you’ll find that many will continue…
