Over the past few years I've been developing what I call Detanglement Coaching. The premise behind this type of coaching is that when one thing shows up as a problem in life, there is a deeper seated issue pulling the strings.
The longer one goes without addressing that deeper issue, the more problems show up in the person's life. At some point these things become entangled, and constricting. And it's hard to find your way out of a big hairy knot of life's problems when you're the one living it.
What is fascinating is how many of these life problems appear on the surface to be unrelated. Troubles with a coworker or boss (or both); problems with kids or spouse (or both); money issues; weight issues; health issues, and so on. Yet, when digging deeper into the heart of these problems, they don't just intersect, they all point to one main underlying issue.
And the thing about that big hairy knot - the one that contributes to all of the frayed tangles spiking out from it - is that it isn't like the problems that appear on the surface; those that show up as real and tangible situations. Nope. The big hairy knot is a concept. A belief. A mindset.
When it comes to mindset, we rarely understand what drives it, until we make the conscious decision to do so. And just like we rely on the sun to heat the Earth, we depend on our mindset to drive our behaviors through perceptions and beliefs; about others, about the world, and especially about ourselves.
Yet mindset represents your universe that hitches to any individual thought. So when you're trying to work through a personal problem, sure you can opt to ignore it and hope it goes away, or to put a bandaid on it to stop the initial irritation. But consider the source.
Because the heart of one problem is also very likely at the heart of others. And doing the same thing over and over again, like ignoring or trying to obscure the force in your universe that fuels all of your life's issues, will simply result in your perpetual orbit around it until you make the choice to venture to the heart of the matter.
Questions: Where do you experience repeating problems in your life - work, relationships, weight or other issues? What are the common threads that connect them? How might you incorporate one or more changes to break the pattern?
If you're feeling you're in a perpetual orbit, reliving the same dysfunctional patterns over and over again, Magical Mind - a 4-week online program currently in the works can help. Or if you'd prefer some 1:1 guidance, give Detanglement Coaching a try.
Change is always easier with support, so if you've got a change in the works but aren't ready to commit to a program or coaching, please find people who can support you in a positive and uplifting way, to help make your transition a smooth and positive one!
Mindset Monday is a weekly blog that consists of a quote, a comment and one or two questions. It is intended to be short but sweet while providing you with something to ponder related to mindset as you begin your week. Mindset is a choice. Make yours an amazing one!
