YOU WANT CHANGE. WHY?
Another great question prompted from my coaching mentor, Dr. Randin Brons “Idea Engineer”.
I work with intelligent people who are prepared to invest time, and in the case of my clients, money, to get a better life than current. To get what they want, they must be prepared to make change. Why do they want change? What prompts them? It is likely the same thing that prompted me to transform my life.
What within a person calls out for change?
A while ago, I had the opportunity to study Eckhart Tolle’s best seller, “A New Earth”. One of the biggest learning’s I took away from this book is a better understanding of what I call duality, the two different people alive within each of us. My personal experience tells me it is true and we are all somewhat aware of it.
I still marvel when I hear someone say “I am mad at myself”. What “I” is mad at whom? Think about it.
Here is Randin’s article:
What wants to change?
"The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem." -- Theodore Rubin
Our lives really begin to change when we learn to shift our perspective on 'problems.'
From the spiritual perspective, problems offer our best path to growth. Like it or not, pain gets our attention. Pain also challenges the ego's perception that it is in complete control of life. This opens the door for soul's guidance.
If we want to be rid of the pain, we must do the work that leads us to greater consciousness. Paradoxically, we can only get rid of the pain by moving through it.
The next time you feel "poor me," stop and ask, "What needs to change? What does my soul want me to learn?"
"No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." -- Source Unknown
To make change, I felt “pain” internally. Strong emotional pain. Through the help and support of trained people, I was lead on a journey of discovery and discovered what needed to change. I also “found” the courage needed to face and execute the change process and was guided or coached through the start of this life long process.
So what inside of you is calling for change, and when and how are you going to respond? (firstname.lastname@example.org and www.hopeserenity.ca)
