I didn’t realize I had become such a cynic!
How’s that for being transparent? I’m a Life Coach and the more I learn about the process of coaching, the more I have to look at myself and the more I discover! It’s not pretty at times. But I LOVE the process!
With each discovery, I am taking little steps forward to becoming the person I really want to be. No matter how painful that is!
So to give you a bit of an update, I made the investment in myself and enrolled in Michael Hyatt’s program, 5 Days to your Best Year Ever. I decided to pass on the offer last year, and really wrestled with it again this year. But, I am SO glad I committed to this program. I chose to self-pace myself on the process, because Day 1 knocked my socks off!
So to begin, Michael had me take a good look at my Limiting Beliefs and recognize when cynicism rears it’s ugly, nasty head. He explains that your Limiting Beliefs are those things you feel that will never change or that you don’t have control over thus limiting your success. So it took me a couple of days to watch for that to happen. I found that these things would show up when I am in a conversation with my wife, or driving down the road or some other unexpected situation. I would then make a note of it. I will now have to take those and create a Liberating Truth to off-set my old belief structure. This is where I make a positive statement about that old belief and how I will choose to let it affect me. It’s going to take some work! But it is so necessary to my success.
Along with this process I was working on my 2016 reading list. One title that I pulled off the shelf was The Power of Your Words by Pastor Robert Morris.
It was easy for me to make this my January pick after being exposed to Michael Hyatt’s material. I have a feeling I will be visiting this topic again throughout the year to give you a progress report. But in a quick sound-bite, our words have power, good and bad! And we must learn how to choose wisely what we say to others or ourselves.
Our words, either to others or to ourselves, and what we believe about ourselves, can have a HUGE impact on our future success!
This is a bigger topic than one blog post can contain, but I at least wanted to share a bit of what I am learning, and hopefully you will find some encouragement here.
I will keeping you updated on my progress in creating my own Best Year Ever and I wish you much success as your embark on a New Year!
