S:1110 Great Question: Complicit?

(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)


“How am I complicit in creating the conditions I say I don’t want?”


Coaching Point: I flared up when I was first presented – no, confronted! – by this Great Question. How dare they assume I had a hand in creating my less-than-stellar outcomes. Surely, not my fault.

Yeah, right. Of course my outcomes are my creations, consciously or not.

We are all co-creators of our outcomes, through our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. We are all players in our games, affecting the outcomes.

Little is to be gained by looking ‘out there’ for the reasons of our results. Self-aware always wins the day. Yes, it can be uncomfortable to look inside, but having far greater outcomes is worth it.

It may help you if turn the question around and think of it this way: Are you complicit in creating the conditions you say you DO want?
