Have got some stuff you need to face up to but keep putting it off.
Are you feeling like a coach potato in some areas of your life but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is.
Love to live life to the full but you’re being held back?
Read on because this concept has really got me thinking and has helped me face up to a few things.
Have you ever watched documentaries that show aerial views of mountains? It’s absolutely incredible, breath taking and overwhelming even.
I wonder if this is how you see your ‘stuff’. So enormous that its breath taking and overwhelming. Maybe it’s so overwhelming that you daren’t look at it fully.
The thought of leaving a job behind that you’ve been in for years, being comfortable, known, knowing what you’re doing. You’re not satisfied but the thought of change overwhelms you.
You daren’t even grasp an aerial view of what it could be like to change jobs.
You know you could sort your finances out but that would involve admitting how much you spend and how much debt you are in. You can’t possibly face it. So you continue to spend and continue to deny there’s a problem.
But the aerial view is incredible. Why would you not allow yourself such pleasure?
The clients I work with are awesome. They come and tell me they are frustrated and want to be more fulfilled. What a great start to admit that something is not quite right. Sometimes they know they have a mountain, other times we work it out together. I help them see the aerial view and what life could be like.
They would tell you they feel all sorts of feelings at this point; overwhelmed, afraid, excited, intimidated, even more frustrated, intrigued, ok, ready…
Then we set some goals. They have worked out what to do, not all the steps are worked out, they might not have even put their shoes on to start but they know.
These people are at the foot of the mountain.
You need to get to the foot of the mountain.
The view is different. You can’t climb a mountain from the aerial view.
You climb from the bottom.
Get to the bottom. Whatever it takes get to the bottom.
I am not a mountain climber in the real sense but I have climbed Snowden when I was 10. I thought it would be like story books standing at the bottom and looking straight up and seeing the peak or maybe a few clouds. The reality on this day was that I saw a road, a rather steep road but a road, not a mountain.
When you get to the bottom
(and I’m not underestimating how hard that can be, it takes some of my clients a good few sessions to work what the mountain is never mind how to get to the bottom)
You won’t look up and see an overwhelming distance, you’ll just see a road you know you need to take.
Don’t put up with these frustrations because you fear the mountain. When you get to the bottom the journey up is an adventure.
When you work with me I am your support act, I prepare you, I walk with you and I take a break with you. I don’t tell you which way to go or how fast to go.
