What if you are really trying to fix the wrong problem?May 23, 2022
If you are like most high achievers I work with, the chances are you are a great problem solver, an analytical thinker and absolutely love working through something until you find the answer!
However, you might also realise that some of the problems you are trying to work through, are not going away, no matter how much you focus on them.
You see, here is the thing, as Einstein said,
'You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it'-
Often you try and solve the problem by constantly focusing on it or like most people do, by treating the symptoms.
Take, for example, if you have a headache, you take a pill and it goes away.
The next day, you have another headache, you take another pill and it goes away.
By the third day you finally start to wonder, why do I keep getting headaches?
and start thinking deeper into circumstances/patterns that are repeated before you have the headache.
It is then, and only then the headache will stop coming back because you found the reason for having the headache and dealt with the cause. 💡
Simple and obvious, right?
The same applies to your inner peace and happiness.
You will not find inner peace, happiness, and fulfilment by constantly going from one job title/project/achievement to another whilst deep down believing you are not worthy of any of it!
So it is also obvious by now, that to solve the worthiness problem, you need to do something different!
Because what got you here, won't get you there!
As one of my favourite colleagues, Brooke Castillo says,
"If you are willing to be uncomfortable, you get to see what you are capable of"
I have experienced this since I started my transformation journey 4 years ago, and every day I challenge myself with a new way of thinking and it is incredible.
Transformation is 'not easy' some might say.
🤔 Looking deeper into yourself,
🤔 Digging into what is not working in your life and why
🤔 Getting yourself to think about what you truly want
is not easy?
(I would ask, compared to what?)
You might argue it would be a struggle, as it requires self-discipline, consistency, bloody-mindedness, and self-integrity.
You see, everything is relative.
I don't know about you, but I would rather push through the initial struggle of looking deeper, learning new things about myself and becoming aware of what is holding me back and deal with it, any day knowing, in the end, I get to experience the life I really truly want!
... than continue to struggle in the stuck thinking, limitations (that are created in your mind or by the society) and judgement of others you constantly measure yourself against.
Yes, it will take time and it will need you to
💥 BE a different person than you have been;
💥 THINK differently to what you have done before and
💥 DO the things that may well be uncomfortable for a while...
BUT it will be worth it in the end, because what got you here, won't get you there for sure!
This is why I created the self-study version of my 8-week transformational coaching programme!
This programme will give you the opportunity to experience this discomfort and deep self-reflection for your own incredible transformation.
By the end of the 8 weeks, you will have
🎯 Have a clear vision and live from a higher purpose – This means knowing exactly what you want with absolute certainty deep in your heart and nothing will deter you from getting it!
🎯 Know what your values are and be in alignment with them- which means you can make decisions easily and are always clear that they are right for where you are right now!
🎈 You finally let go of the beliefs and the judgement of others that no longer serve you
As a result, you will start to
🤩 Only see possibilities and stop fighting for your limitations
🍀 Live in true abundance - of love, joy, calmness, inner peace, money, friends and anything else your heart desires right now.
🌟 Create an impact and ripple effect and finally find the fulfilment you have been seeking.
You will get
✔ Access to exactly the same homework study material and audios my high-ticket clients go through when they work with me 1:1
✔ An instruction video each week explaining what you need to do.
✔ You get to do it all at your own pace for a fraction of the investment
PLUS- If you decide to work with me after you finish the course your investment for the self-study will be deducted from your investment in the coaching.
