Do you ever have so many wonderful ideas and opportunities that you are just so excited and try to do them all at the same time? Oh I do. I’ve always been a whirlwind.
It’s served me well for many, many years. I get a lot accomplished. I also realize that even though I get a lot accomplished, I’m sometimes not quite sure just exactly what I’ve accomplished OR celebrated or enjoyed it. I’ve jumped from one accomplishment onto the next.
I’m reminding myself to slow down. Pace myself. This is not a race. This is a journey to be savored.
I’ve just begun coaching a group of employees. One of their core challenges is time. They all say they don’t have enough of it. And they are fixated on not having enough. What I have been telling them (which may be too woo-woo) is that what you put your attention on you get more of and it grows. Therefore, if you are putting your focus on not having enough time, guess what? You will not have enough time. Instead, when you put your focus on, I have more than enough time, you seem to magically have enough. But it’s not magic. It’s the power of gratitude.
Then I found this photo on Facebook:
I’m going to share this with the group today, before our next group coaching call. It might be hard for some to hear, but that’s where change begins. When you feel uncomfortable. That’s when you begin to get curious, ask questions and do something differently. Like putting your attention toward abundance and gratitude.
What do you want to refocus your mindset around? What do you want more of?
Ahhh . . . This statement resonated with me, “I’m sometimes not quite sure just exactly what I’ve accomplished OR celebrated or enjoyed it.” This happens to me often. I want to focus my attention on execution. Make a decision and go with it!
Thank you Michelle. So glad it resonated with you!
I love this. It reminds to practice focusing my attention and energy on what I do want, in all areas of my life. Sometimes I forget to focus while at work or in a time crunch, when I may need it the most!
I’m glad this resonated with you!
It’s just so easy to lose focus but once you do gain it back and the energy that goes along with it, you just gain momentum more quickly AND you have a better time because you are present.
Thanks for commenting!
Yes yes yes!!! I don’t think this is woo-woo at all. We often tell our clients that you see what you’re looking for, and I think this follows in the same vein of what you’ve said. I love that graphic! I think I’ll share it with our community as well. Such a good reminder.
Thank you Jessica! Share away.
I LOVE this!!!
I’ve noticed that when I regularly follow my gratitude practice in depth, the world around me seems to change. It’s really all about perspective.
Thank you Elda! Gratitude is indeed very powerful. Life changing!
