Why it doesn’t HAVE to be a problem

Post to Twitter

I read something yesterday that I thought I’d share.
 
I read/listen to a LOT of books.
I’d say 3-4 a month, on top of online content, mentoring and coaching info.
 
Why?
(You can tell I’m writing as I think….!)
I’m fortunate that I’ve chosen a profession I enjoy. I love helping people improve, I enjoy improving myself & learning
and the subjects I cover interest me massively – when this happens, it’s never a ‘chore’ to be ‘working’.
(There’s a hint if you’re looking to start a new business, or develop a current one 😉
 
 
So…….
 
we all appreciate that anything new or challenging that we approach
causes a bit of apprehension, maybe a little fear, and likely a bit of
procrastination or treadmill walking (moving but not getting anywhere) over DOING IT.
 
Yet,
when we take that step, take it on, and get ‘over it’;
 
1) We feel like a weight is lifted
2) We realise it wasn’t actually as bad as we built it up to be
3) We’re now a step further ahead than where we were, both physically and mentally
4) Confidence levels have risen
5) We feel more accomplished, and enthusiastic again
 
Agree?
 
 
This little snippet talked about re-framing those thoughts,
when a challenge appears.
 
So not looking it as a challenge,
a troublesome battle,
or an anxious situation.
 
instead,
look at it as;
 
“A personal test. Something that has come along to see if we are READY to move up a level.
Something that will see if we’re brave enough to do something and move onwards.
Something that has been put in front of us,
to see if we’re an Action Taker or Excuse Maker.
Whether we’re someone who is ready to walk the walk,
or just continue with the talk,
the internal dialogue of Victim rather than Viking.”
 
 
Just like to say those weren’t the actual words,
those are mine, but the message was about it being
a personal test!
 
So there you go.
Personally I love it – we all have these moments,
and to think of it as;
 
“Fcuk yeah! This has come up to test me, to see if I’m ready to step up – to see if I’m ready!”
 
And as someone who likes to keep striding forward,
this resonates massively with me, and gets me taking it on!
 
Thoughts? You in or out this boat?! 🙂
