Sometimes we are “in it” (the swirl of our negative/disempowering thoughts)
We don’t even know that we are “in it”
The thoughts don’t seem like thoughts
They seemed real
They seemed like the truth
I was “in it” yesterday and today
A project I am working on wasn’t coming together the way I wanted it to
I’m a Certified Life Coach
I practice what I preach
No, I couldn’t be “in it”
What wasn’t working had nothing to do with my thoughts
Surely it was the circumstance that was the problem
If I could figure out how to change the circumstance everything would work out the way I wanted
So I thought
I asked for help from my fellow coaches
I wanted them to help me figure out how to change my circumstance
They didn’t offer any help that would change my circumstance
Instead they asked me questions:
Why did I think my circumstance was a problem?
What was my thought about my circumstance?
How did that thought make me feel?
How did that feeling cause me to act?
Was that action giving me the result I wanted?
If not change my thought
I realized I was “in it”
Beating myself up for being “in it” would only increase the swirl of my thoughts
Extend myself grace
Do an Unintentional Model
Do an Intentional Model
I was no longer “in it”
And everything was now working out for me
