Fear may help us produce short-term results, but they’re unsustainable. Fear eats us from the inside out. It provides useful, catabolic energy, sure, for the immediate task. But over the long term, fear will either result in atrophy because we’re hiding and not using our talent, or we’ll cramp up and collapse because we’re asking more of ourselves than we have to give.
I was in the Res the other day, when I noticed an old standing dead tree trunk just off the side of the trail. Despite the fact that I’d passed it thousands of times, I’d never noticed it before! And there, in that moment, I had a revelation. I connected a couple of dots related to my work as a coach. I’m going to tell you about those dots, which are “Dreams,” “Thoughts,” and “Habits.”
What we don’t want is hate, or one-issue blindness,
Or belief that your view is more important than kindness,
We need willingness first, to listen then yield,
As everyone’s goals are in play on this field.
You’re really quite clueless, accept this as true,
And you’ll find that this makes you a much better you.
I'm pleased to share that I'll be supporting the World Happiness Summit as a facilitator.
