Unlearning & re-learning

A great coach assists us to navigate our belief systems.

Experiences and perceptions right from early childhood are “filed away” in many “boxes on shelves” of our subconscious mind.

These include influences of our parents, education and culture.
Some files are limiting and some are empowering.
These beliefs drive our behaviour.

Until you make the unconscious conscious it will direct your life and you will call it fate

-Carl Jung

Overwhelm

Overwhelmed?

Feeling buried under everything that is seemingly piling up?

That sense of drowning in concerns or commitments?

Overwhelm has the potential to put you on your backside or on the sideline.

It also signals opportunity to reflect and reset .

The answer to overwhelm isn’t doing more, it’s prioritizing.

– Tim Ferriss

At a recent mastermind group I facilitated we discussed a strategy of intentionally setting priorities based on values then managing those priorities daily.

The priorities break down the pile into smaller manageable chunks of what matters to you (based on your values).

I recommend taking time out for selfcare when the feeling hits before moving into the following:

🔑 Externalise. Get your thoughts on paper.

🔑 Elicit your values if you haven’t already or revisit your written list of values. A good coach can serve you well in this area.

🔑 Evaluate if the use of your resources such as time, money, skill and energy are moving you closer to where you want to go (goal getting) and is all about what you treasure most (values)

🔑 What can you eliminate, delegate, automate or outsource ?

🔑 Prioritise your calendar, to do list, to not do list and budget. Manage daily to build consistency and momentum

🔑 Meet with your mentor.

Who is in your circle?

WHO YOU LEARN FROM MATTERS!

For more than 20 years I have been on a personal growth journey with John Maxwell mentoring me from afar via his books, CDs etc.

Now I am so fortunate to be mentored by John.

I was so glad I had pen handy when I was in the room with him in Florida. You see, words are powerful & creative.

So what did John say that day?

I see you as a transformational leader …someone who influences people to think , speak , act in such a way that it brings positive difference in their life and the lives of others

Sometimes you have to borrow another’s belief in you to get traction….that’s why it is so important who is in your inner circle.

I encourage you to take a moment today to intentionally audit who you allow to speak into your life.

Who do you learn from?

Who you learn from matters!

Education and meditation

There are different forms of “education” available to us.

The Latin origin of the word education is “educo
It refers to a drawing out from within rather than cramming so much information in.

There is so much value in coaching, mentorship and meditation.

(The etymology of “meditate” suggests a chewing over or thinking deeply on something.)

Why?

I love how my mentor Christian Simpson articulates it:

“Evaluated experiences are life’s rich learning ground. They feed the soul. They’re the source of our growth, our “becoming”, our evolution and wisdom“

🔑Do you slow down in this fast paced world?

🔑Do you schedule time to draw out of your resourcefulness?

🔑Do you evaluate your experiences?

🔑Do you have a coach?

🔑Do you have a mentor?

🔑What is the unasked question?

Clear the path!

You likely have heard the cliches “life is a journey” and “life is a marathon not a sprint“

Life’s “road” has it’s potholes and debris.

My mandate is to clear the path for long distance runners.

May your path be long and clear!

Here’s 3 considerations and keys for our journey:

1️⃣ Does your path lead to where you want to go?

🔑 In this fast life, slow down to intentionally evaluate your steps. Are they taking you closer to your desired destination?

2️⃣ Get clear on what you value, who you are, where you are, where you desire to be and who is running wth you.

🔑 Questions -> clarity -> success

3️⃣ Wouldn’t it be great if we could get the “heads up” on the upcoming potholes to avoid injury and go further with peace and prosperity ?

FIXED

My determination of where I am going is fixed. How I get there is not.
“Be stubborn about the vision, be flexible with your plan”
– John Maxwell.
Is my focus monomaniacal?
Would friends call it an all consuming obsession?
Crazed maybe?

OCULAR

Seeing with my eyes and my imagination.

Seeing where I want to go with the knowledge of having seen where I already am and most importantly seeing who I am.

“You will never outperform your own self image”
– Maxwell Maltz
COMMAND
“Discipline equals freedom”
– Jocko Willink
Am I following up my intent with corresponding action?
Are my activities moving me closer to what I want to accomplish?

“When I’m old, how much would I be willing to pay to travel back in time and relive the moment that I’m experiencing right now?”
– Muneeb Ali
Is my definition of success clearly written out?
Not my parents’. Not my spouse’. Mine.
Not sure?
Here’s a start…
Is it simply goal getting?
Fulfilment?
Significance?
Legacy?
How will it feel?
What will it look like?
Who will it impact?

The Law of Intentionality

Let’s consider Law #1 of my mentor John C. Maxwell’s “15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”The Law of Intentionality

“Growth doesn’t just happen”

I agree with John that working hard doesn’t guarantee success and hope is not a strategy.

So what may be holding us back from how intentional we need to be?

Our beliefs drive our behaviour.

We may have some mistaken or hidden beliefs that are holding us back.

Participants of my mastermind group studying these 15 Laws of John’s become aware of these growth gap traps that can keep us from growing and reaching our potential.
