I wanted to share one of my favorite things with you today…
At the start of every coaching session that I do with my clients I ask them to tell me about some great things that happened since we last spoke—their wins, and then we talk about any challenges that arose for them during the week as well. The absolutely amazing thing is that by the time we are done discussing their challenges they seem more like wins. By the end, everything is a win!
This happens because I help them to shift their perspective so instead of just seeing what went wrong, they are able to identify the lesson they learned and the growth that occurred. Light bulbs go off in their minds, and I can feel their smiles and relief through the phone.
Shifts like these are possible for all of us, anytime we are willing to see things differently. When we give ourselves room to step back from a situation, and revisit our feelings about it a little later, so much can change.
I am so grateful because seeing these shifts in my clients’ lives makes me feel like I am witnessing miracles all day long.
Next time you are feeling down, or you are ranting about something that happened that feels unfair, I invite you to take a step back, be willing to see things differently, and look for how this experience is ultimately taking you toward becoming the best version of yourself. I am not saying it is always comfortable and fun, and it may take a bit of practice, but you too can create your own miracles. And I am always here to help 🙂
