Whoa! Not what you were expecting? Cool. Feel free to stop reading now.
If, however, you are just a little bit intrigued or curious then read on...
As you know, I am a coach and I am also a human being who has had many interactions with many people over many years. So...although I haven't heard it all, I have heard a lot! And...what I've learned (that maybe some of you smart people already know) is that people can be really committed...to their kids who won’t empty the dishwasher, partners who don’t pick up their socks, jobs that they don't necessarily like etc.. and whatever else they put on their "list" of important things.
What isn't on their” list”? THEM.
Ask them about their commitment to themselves, their health, happiness whether at home or at work, or with their physical being, relaxation or gasp...something that they do just for themselves and then you hear it.....they are too busy “doing" that they don't have enough time or they are only staying at their job “until”, maybe they are good at starting stuff but something always comes up to get in the way of finishing it; they procrastinate and find excuses and never, quite make it to their own “list” of important stuff.
Why? Various reasons for sure and there are also common themes. I refer to it as “being committed to their S**T”!
Sometimes It is much more comfy doing stuff for someone else than facing your own s**t and you come off as looking noble or perhaps a martyr.
Sometimes, you are getting something out of that s**t. Yep. Not a judgement...just a fact… we do not do things that don't give us a benefit even if the benefit is complaining rights at the lunchroom table!
Sometimes, the thought of doing something about your commitment to your s**t means trying something new and different and yikes..that is downright scary!
No matter what your reason may be….you deserve better.
Why am I bringing this up now? I don’t know. Maybe I've just heard one too many of these stories….
Those who know me well know that I am pretty passionate when it comes to making choices and living your best life. I love how the Red Hot Chili Peppers put it: “this life is more than just read through” - so much truth here.
So, if you are ready to commit to YOU…reach out. I am always available for a ZERO obligation call to see if we’re a fit.
