Hi Team...

Over the past few weeks I have noticed a common theme presenting itself....

Bringing yesterday into today...

And, after hearing many stories, from many individuals, all of different backgrounds, I feel it needs to be addressed..

In working with a lot of Leaders and Professionals, it is clear these individuals have a lot on their plate... both things they put on their plate and the pressure they put on themselves- that often results in more on their plate.

Much of the pressure....

Much of the strain and squeeze these individuals feel comes from the past.. not the present..

Let's face it, most of what we face today can be faced and handled without an issue if we had a clean/clear emotional slate... but, we do not...


👉The way the mind works is like a giant filing cabinet... but rather than just filing papers, it files and records memories, emotions, feelings, the faces and reactions of others.. situational data, risk, conversations, dialogues, experiences and the results of all..

 

👉We have a super-computer in our head...and that super-computer is linked to our core, our gut, and our instincts...and will determine what we do today, tomorrow, and in our future.

SO, it is no wonder why when certain situations present themselves, we may even see or feel a stop/ yield sign as this situation can be a reminder of the past... 

With that said, things also work the other way... when we have had good experiences, we file those as well...

That is why, often times,  in business / hiring professionals there is no substitute for experience and somebody that has a positive track record in doing something well - as they see nothing but green lights as it relates to what they do well. This allows them to have predictable results as a result of their filed outcomes and experiences..

👉But the lesson today is this..

YOUR PAST IS YOUR PAST

Your past is a moment in time you have had- with certain people, certain outcomes, and certain experiences. That is it. Nothing more. A moment in time.

Your past is simply AN Experience that you have had... and if not seen as a singular experience, this experience can and will alter all future decision making..

This is why many people find themselves in the same situation over and over and over again...

The names change, the venues change, the topics change but the end results almost always end up looking the same...

When I Coach individuals and teams- we have to begin to rebuild, rewrite, and recreate the narrative...

New scenes...

New ways of thought...

New characters...

New outcomes...

It is an amazing journey that will lead to immense breakthrough...

It is a lot of fun to watch somebody who has been stuck and a prisoner of their own thoughts and ways of being break through....

What is amazing about the human brain is that is has the ability to whitewash things and start over when it is fed new experiences that validate new thoughts rather than the old....

When you are able to feed your mind a healthy diet of thought, derived from a NEW plan and starting point, amazing things can happen for you.

I want that for you.

I want you to leave the past behind and begin the create your future...

Win one thought at a time...

Let's go...

Your Coach,
