S:0558 Principle: Breaking Patterns

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

Sometimes we get stuck in patterns — behavior patterns, thinking patterns, and emotional patterns. If you are stuck in one which no longer serves you, try this; as soon as you catch yourself in something you don t like, ask these three questions:

– What am I seeing….right now? – What am I feeling….right now? – What am I doing….right now?

The process of asking, and answering, these questions will immediately ground you in the present moment. Even if you are feeling something about the future (fear, uncertainty, etc.) this process puts everything into the context of the present. It is only in the present that you have choice, the choice to see things differently, or feel differently, or do something differently.

 

Coaching Point: What s true for you….right now?
