What matter has your focus?
Is there something you are striving for, accepting of, in discord with, excited about, envisioning? What? Here’s a gentle reminder: Realize or remember that your focus on a matter is creating/manifesting an outcome. Seems so simple doesn’t it? Take a moment to get clear with yourself about how you are embracing the matter.
Now that you’ve identified what that may be, are you feeling discontent, tired of the same ol’ way you handle matters, ready to feel confident with how you show up and not beat yourself up because somehow you’ve convinced yourself that you were a total jerk? Or you’ve procrastinated once again in starting that heartfelt desire to do that very thing you don’t feel equipped to do. Is there a better way? What is here for you?
Consider this statement made by, Bill Carmody, PCC, “Inclusiveness starts with empathy.” He shared this when responding to a question in our virtual meeting with coaches from around the world.
When will you start being inclusive to yourself? Including your ideas as something you want to get to the heart of the matter about? When you consider a matter, imagine including empathy. Notice your own empathy to yourself first. Self evaluations work wonders and so does someone else working with you to help you see your blindspots. Once you start to develop empathy for yourself, showing up in a loving way towards yourself, it is then, in your own personal development that you will first know what that is and your focus will become one that wants to help others be with empathy towards themselves for the sake of others doing the same. Imagine the exponential impact just you can make?
What is here for you right now as you read this? Answer that for yourself. How is it that you are showing up wherever you are?
Only you can come up with what is right for you. When you develop into a developmental stage that allows you to be confident within yourself, not falsely confident, you will be able to show up in that manner and will be more engaged differently encouraging others to show up in this same way.
The facade that has equipped you with the “fake it until you make it” outcomes in your life has not acknowledged the internal dialogue that robs you of your genuine confidence. Why can’t you be as you are or speak out what matters to you? Another question to come to terms with.
If that describes you, what are you ready to be vulnerable with or about, and how will you embrace the truth of your most-incredible self?
How long will you wait to embrace yourself confidently, validate your own truth, grasp the reality of who you really are, and start the trend of meeting others in that way as well?
There is no need to hide something, rather, bring it out as a curiosity. Just take for a moment the matter, and imagine brining it forth in word. What would you do differently? Notice the creativity that comes forth. The change that happens.
