Seven Steps Forwards ~ Six Steps Back

Posted in The Coaching Box | Comments Off on Seven Steps Forwards ~ Six Steps Back -->

In this weeks #CoachingBox we will be exploring that elusive concept of “arriving”, that time of celebration,  after all it may have taken you weeks, months or possibly years and you’ve finally arrived!! Or have you?

You may not be where you expected to be, but here is where you are, right now.  So what happened?

Sometimes it becomes evident that there is a bigger purpose to life, that no-one told you about.  It’s the little things that point you in the direction you’re to be heading and often we respond in one way, we resist and say NO!  After all, YOU know what YOU want and YOU ARE steadily moving towards it.  But there is another reality at play!

Hindsight is a wonderful thing at these times.  We do not know everything.  We think that we know all we’re suppose to know for now, but in the scheme of things we do not know much at all.  We think that we are on target living the life we have designed and enjoying it!

There is a saying loosely based on a quote by Pema Chodron that says that “life will continue to send the same lessons until you get it!”

What you don’t know is that life has a plan and that the plan has brought you to now!!  To a time when what is required is for you to learn the lessons kindly sent your way.  To really get that you are only you and all that is required is that you do the best that you can do in this moment, just this moment!!

It might be useful to take time out to reflect on your current situation.  Here are a few questions that you can use to facilitate this process;

  1. Where are you in relation to where you want to be?
  2. What is your sense of where you are going?  Do you hear something?
  3. What qualities and skills  have you yet to develop?  Are these new or old skills?
  4. What lessons are you to learn this time?

Take some time to think about what’s new in your life that really excites you.  What is this telling you about where you are heading or where you are today?   Be Patient.  The answers will arrive as soon as you relax into it!
