Ever found yourself looking back & wishing you’d done something? Knowing now that it would have made a difference?
Yeap me too!!
So today’s lesson comes from a conversation with Rory, my then 11-year- old!!
On the weekend he was apprehensive about going to Karate training. He shared that he was embarrassed, due to not attending in a while, plus as the highest grade belt, he didn’t want to mess up.
He did go & came back with a smile.
So I asked what happen..”It was a good training mum & if you take action, it’s ok.”
The worst stuff was in my head.” WOW!
General Lesson: We make up the worst possible scenarios & crap in our own minds, we feed our fear. Action dissolves it. Noticing what you say puts you in the box seat.
I wrote this after a meeting last week — Would I repeat the CRAP I tell myself to Rory? Absolutely;
NOT. Point – Shut the Grotty Goddess down, Listen to the Good Goddess in you head.
My Fear was- not being able to write.
My Lesson – However based on the feedback on my last posts & my other social sites…perhaps I should have taken action sooner. I could have impacted more people sooner by sharing the insights along the way in writing, not just as a speaker or coach.
Action is EMPOWERING!!
What empowering action have you taken? What have your kids taught you in business?
