It doesn’t work

How often do you blame the provider or implement for not getting you your results? “My business profit hasn’t changed”  “I haven’t lost any weight”
Often followed up by, in my profession, “Coaching doesn’t work”
Really? I beg to differ. I know I have created the life I live following 1 simple rule : Follow The Instructions. Simple.

In coaching that is Do What Your Coach Tells You. In Gymnastics : Do what your Gym Coach tells you. In learning guitar : Do what your Teacher tells you.

The constant search for the quick fix and finding the answer outside robs us of the chance to reach our true potential.
We hit the moment of discomfort and pull back. “I might upset someone”  I’ll have to work hard”
No shit. And by following through you also may just learn something, and grow through the process.
So just for today, from those whom you respect: Do what you’re told, respect the relationship you started.
You may just get what you want. I did.

How to see clearly

I’ve only spent 3 weeks at my new pad since I moved in.

When I got here it was mid summer, very hot and very sweaty. BIG cockroaches BIG spiders and BIG change from Melbourne! It was not very comfortable. And despite it being somewhere that others come for holiday, I was looking forward to getting away from it.

Then I went travelling for 5 weeks. After 4 days home I was off again.

And Then I got back. It’s beautifully sunny, gorgeously warm and fresh. Tonight it’s relaxingly warm after a magic day with friends. Wrapped in marshmallow heat.

I fell in love again with my new home. All it took was some time away to get some perspective. A step back and it became clear.

Do you need to step back to see clearly?
