What happens when clarity comes into view?

August 10, 2017

Clarity of view

 

It is all very well talking about wanting to see things clearly in order to get ourselves organised but what happens when clarity comes into view?

Prior to reaching this point, we might be actively engaged in development efforts or merely going through the motions by paying lip service to the idea of clarifying choices and so forth. Regardless of what occurred beforehand, however, what happens when clarity comes into view determines our next move.

It is difficult to pretend we are comfortable staying in the centre of our comfort zone – or routine so smoothing we are barely awake – once we have seen or experienced a compelling alternative with the clarity of who we are and how our potential can be realized.

Frustration is a strong motivator when connected to a bettering of ourselves for the sake of ‘living fully’ instead of ‘playing small’. Certainly, it is not always pleasant to hold onto a picture of clarity, especially when it is vastly different to the reality of the moment.

That said, it is up to the individual to ‘walk the path’ indicated by a clear vision of personal and professional objectives. Ideally, the journey will provide enjoyment and satisfaction with each step of the way, although as ever there are no guarantees.

Please feel free to get in contact if you’d like to explore the issue of what happens when clarity comes into view as part of a complimentary coaching session, via Skype or Google+ hangout.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘What happens when clarity comes into view?’ post.

Gateway

June 18, 2015

Gateway

Each moment could be considered a gateway to a desired tomorrow. On the outside nothing may change as we move though the proverbial gateway. Despite taking a few steps in a particular direction, the physical environment will remain similar to that at the point of departure.

Yet it is our attitude and overall mindset that creates the possibility for us to use the gateway as a new beginning. Deciding to move forward takes determination at times. The gateway might seem to be not only a beginning, but also an ending of a phase of life which has become comfortable without perhaps actually being liked.

Passing through the gateway means getting accustomed to a different reality, one with the potential to be better although in the first instance such optimism is not always easy to muster. Knowing why we are seeking to achieve progress in whatever area of life we are referring to aids our efforts.

The upset caused by us moving out of our comfort zone will, it is trusted, be compensated by us fulfilling our objective beyond the gateway. That there is the chance of this being so indeed makes the action worth undertaking, no? Staying where we are, at best, leads to more of the same if we are lucky. Standing still though can also be described as stagnating, however.

Bringing this ‘Gateway‘ post to a close, let me thank you for being here today. If you’d like to leave a comment regarding the idea of a gateway, please feel free to do so.

Kindest regards.

Leaving the comfort zone

January 16, 2014

Seagull flying over the sea

Leaving the comfort zone is oftentimes a major step towards reaching our desired goal.” #bgdtcoaching.

Doing something difficult, perhaps challenging the status quo in one way or another, leaving the comfort zone as it were, may be daunting.

As civilised, rational, human beings, we can find many arguments for remaining within the perceived safety of the boundaries of our actual experience. The days of following a whim or making a reckless decision, we might feel, are best behind us.

Yet and it is a big yet, unless we are truly, fully, one hundred per cent satisfied with every aspect of our life then leaving the comfort zone is what we need to do sooner or later to reach our desired goal.

Our heart is most likely telling us this already. Our gut instinct is to give up ‘playing small’ and get on with realizing our potential. And though it is a cliché, it’s also true that whatever we have achieved to date began as an idea and was brought into being by leaving the comfort zone, notwithstanding the presence of doubts and concerns.

If you are contemplating leaving the comfort zone and would like to do so knowing someone is there for you as a non-judgemental sounding board, let’s speak and see if coaching can be of value to you.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this leaving the comfort zone post today.
