We think it is playing out in our world around us,
It is actually playing out in our minds.
In David Rock’s, “You Brain at Work,” he talks about the stage in your mind and how our thoughts are jumping on and off the stage. He talks about the Director, which is you, and how if we learn how to direct our stage efficiently then we can get more done.
In Positive Intelligence, the belief is that the thoughts are clustered in characters, and they are playing on your stage. Each of the characters are your childhood response to the world around you, in other words, it is how you interpreted the best way to handle unsafe, or difficult, situations.
And while they worked great when we were kids, now they keep us stuck.
This is where I come in! I am a general Life Coach.
I have a lot of people ask me what a general life coach does.
I help you become the director of your own mind and connect to your inner wisdom.
Why is this important?
Because when you do, you no longer allow life to happen to you, you begin creating your life.
Here are 4 things you can do to start being the Director of your own life:
- Become clear on where you are going – your goals and intentions. You goals are like plugging where you are going on a GPS, if you don’t know where you are going, or if you keep changing the destination, then how are you going to get there!
- Develop a strong vision of where you are going and who you will be when you get there. There is lots of research that supports the idea that if we can connect our present with who we will be in a year, 5 years, or longer, then we are more likely to make choices that will benefit us in the future.
- Create routines and habits that support who you are becoming. When you are clear you say no to things that don’t support your destination and yes to those that do!
- And so important, develop a stronger desire for what you want than for immediate gratification.
