Do you plan to fail in your health

I recently attended a 3 day conference in which I was speaking on stage 2 of the 3 days. This was my 3rd time attending this event as a speaker, so I already knew that the schedule was going to be REALLY tight.

Moving from stage to stage, workshop to workshop and running a coaching clinic at our booth was going to be a challenge, so I did a lot of planning. One of the things I did, was I planned for my nutrition. How many of you have attended an event or gone on vacation and your schedule is so chaotic that you end up skipping meals, not drinking enough water, and your nutritional intake drastically drops?

Are you afraid of your power?

You can listen to the podcast here.

This week I wanted talk about “Power”. I think Power is probably one of the most interesting words because I think people are afraid of it and people don’t like to say they have it, but what’s interesting is we all have power.

One of the things I’ve learned over the years is if you don’t understand the power you have you are more than likely to abuse it.

There are different types of power. There is power over or positional power, which means that power is given to you through title, position or a job. This type of power is usually associated with conflict.

The power I really want to talk about is not the positional power but the power that comes from within you. Why that power is so important is because once you understand it and cultivate it, it is the one source of power that no one can take away from you. It is the power that you quietly walk with. It is felt in your confidence, in your posture and in your way of being. It is felt though your energy.

So what is this power? This is the power that is created as you move from failure to success. Imagine if you will, that when you are in a place that may be your deepest and darkest, or in a place where you are lacking confidence because things are new and you don’t think that you can do something, in many ways you are feeling somewhat powerless. As you learn and grow and you overcome that feeling of ‘I Can’t’ and  move to ‘I Can’, you move from darkness to light, you learn lessons and you pick up the experience the knowledge. It is that transformation that creates a sense of internal power.

 As we overcome the 'I can’t' and move to 'I can', we create internal power.

It’s an internal knowing of your capacity to win in an area. The more wins you have, the more experiences you have, and the more you move from failure to success, the more internal power is grown within you.

Internal power is a confidence, it’s a knowing, its a belief in self. It is your ability to say “I got this”. It is your ability to know that your word is law, and when you say something is going to be done, you KNOW you are going to do it. People who have that power walk a certain way, they carry themselves a certain way and they have a level of confidence that is felt. You often feel them before you see them. They are people that you can count on.

So when I’m talking about power, I’m not talking about positional power because positional power can always be taken. It’s not true power, it is perceived power. I’m talking about that internal power that only you can cultivate as you rise from the ashes, as you go from coal to diamond, and as you move through the heat.

As you continually experience successes that the power within you begins to grow and create the next best version of you.

How do you know that it’s time for change?

 

You can listen to this podcast by clicking here.

Change is a beautiful thing but how do you know it’s time? It’s an interesting question. I know for myself, that there are moments when I resist change because what’s going on is comfortable for me, and I like it because it’s familiar. I’ve come to learn that staying familiar and comfortable does not move me closer to my goals.

So how do you know that you’ve been doing something for far too long, you’ve outgrown something, or something’s just not working anymore?

SG2 How do you know that its time to change

One of the things I’ve realized for myself, is that I recognize when it’s time for change when conflict occurs. The conflict can either be internal, in terms of I intuitively know that something’s off, or there is a conflict in values. What I mean by a conflict in values is that I’ve valued something before, however I have grown and my values  and beliefs have changed and now there is a rub. It might be that a situation has occurred that is challenging my values, and there conflict is between what’s going on and the values I hold. When I have an internal conflict, I realize that my productivity declines and I need to resolve it before I can get back to my desired way of being.

Another way you know that it is time to change is when there is external conflict. That can be a conflict between you and another person, you and a group, or even you and an experience that’s outside of you. The cool thing about conflict, is if you look at it from a place of; it’s not about right or wrong or about good or bad, but as an opportunity for change, growth and expansion, it can become a beautiful thing. We are socialized to believe that conflict as bad. I’ve learned that conflict is my access to change. It’s my access to more, it’s my access to transformation. If I embrace conflict and ask myself what I am supposed to learn, what am I supposed to do differently and what am I meant to change, usually something comes up and I get the opportunity to begin to do things differently.

Over the past 6 months there has been a lot of growth for me, which naturally means there has been a lot of internal conflict. I know I am being challenged to learn, grow, expand and begin to do things differently, and in some cases, move on, however it has been challenging. Even as I know the change will bring new things, it’s natural to resist at the beginning. But once I stop resisting, step into acceptance, and examine what’s going on, there is always something beautiful that evolves and new opportunities come toward me.

What I’d like to leave you with is if you are willing to embrace when you feel conflict, whether it be internal, (which you can feel in your gut or in tension in your body) or if it is external, (a difference of opinion with others) and look for the learn and the growth, there is usually new opportunities. The key to success is to have the internal strength to push through your initial resistance long enough… to access the transformation on the other side.
