Okay, before we get started with today’s episode I want to teach you a little something that’s very important to me in my coaching practice.
Point your head, right at your temple. And repeat after me. “This is my thinker. And my thinker is not my knower.”
Now, point at your heart and repeat after me. “This is my knower. And my knower is not my thinker.”
I know it seems elementary but stay with me. Point back to your head, “My thinker tries to be my knower. But my thinker is only my thinker. It’s not my knower.”
Now point to your heart, or your knower, “My knower doesn’t really need my thinker to know. Even when my thinker wants to be right, I still know.”
Now, that little exercise my friends, will come in handy later. It’s okay, You can rewind so your thinker can catch up.
On today’s topic, Do you ever feel like you’re just not good enough? That life requires more than you have. In many areas of my life, I mean, this is real. I feel like I don’t have what it takes, often. Most of the time.
There have been books written about this, and there’s definitely a lot of podcasts on this topic.
But lately I’ve been thinking about this differently. Because not only am I a Certified Life Coach, I am also a client. There are a lot of days where I feel that I don’t measure up.
You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast # 86 and today we’re asking the question, are you good enough.
I’m a starter. Those of you that know me well, already know that. In my life I have been fortunate enough to have an 50k foot view on some really cool projects. But that also has a dark side to it.
You see, I’m a starter. I get excited about things and I sometimes see a vision clearly. I find it easy to communicate that vision. I’m a communicator and some things just come natural to me. They fall into place easily and that’s exciting, it’s invigorating and some say that I’m a little too intense when those things are working in me.
But what happens when the dust settles? What happens after I follow what is said in Hab 2:2 when the vision is written down and explained and communicated? What then? What happens after it’s started? How do you get past that? I want to share with you a struggle I’ve had for years, and the answer is quite simple. Welcome to Living the Freedom Life This is Episode 85 and today we’ll talk about the solution of walking with an Open Hand.
I don’t like to fail. I’m sure you don’t either. But I have and I do fail. A lot. It’s difficult for me to keep moving, to keep trying after I realize that I have failed. Sometimes, I refuse to see it when it’s right in front of me. The most dangerous part about this is that most times when we fail, we face it alone. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life, ep 83 and today we are talking about Embracing Failure Alone.
If you’re listening to this today, Thanksgiving Day, instead of listening to this right now, let me encourage you to go check the turkey, check on the biscuits, hug your mother, sit down with your grandparents and listen to those stories they want to tell you. Then come back and listen to Living the Freedom Life. I want to share with you some things I learned about glue today.
