Most people have a low tolerance for truth. Whether they understand it or not, perception plays a more significant role than people think. Many of us have inherited a tendency to pretend not to see, preferring to deny, minimize or ignore the truth. What is your perception in business and in life, and where might you be reluctant to accept reality? How do you perceive yourself, and how do you think others perceive you? As an example, many careers have been built or compromised based on perception alone. We will spend time considering the implications of your reality in business and in life to develop a strategy for you.
“Perception is edited observation” David Hawkins
How many people spend time thinking of an ideal scene for their life or dwelling in possibilities for their next step? You may have done this in your early 20s which helped launch your career or started you on the road to your ideal family/life, but does it meet your present day reality and current ambitions of your idyllic day-to-day. We often see through a lens of limited beliefs, buying into the idea that just because it has always been a certain way, change is not possible for us. Or perhaps we are on life’s treadmill of busy-ness and have simply not had the time. Whether it is dreaming of major changes in business or in life, or just considering minor adjustments here and there, we will dwell in possibilities for your life.
“Your hopes, dreams, and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them.” William James
Stress & Stretch
Once we’ve worked at identifying areas where you want to see meaningful change, we break this down into a list of manageable next action steps. A lot of what stops us from moving forward, particularly with our big dreams, can be feelings of overwhelm at the (perceived) enormity of change required to meet this goal, along with the idea that it all has to be actioned immediately. Similar to a personal trainer overseeing your new workout, with each next action step, we help you to stretch you to your new normal.
