I’ve been in a vulnerable space recently and not afraid to admit it. As a personal development coach portraying yourself as perfect to me is not being authentic. I’ve developed systems and tools and did whatever it took to breakthrough the other side. I am sharing this because I want to empower others with what has worked to save time and energy for people feeling the same way of being anxious, guilty, unfulfilled in life.
Having said that… there are of course times that test us and traveling home for the holidays then leaving after an emotional week has been challenging. Coming out of that though I was able to create content and learn more about myself so my viewpoint has shifted. And I’ve been able to do that through the work I’ve done.
As an analytical person I’ve always looked for the deeper meaning in concepts like “you are exactly where you need to be”. Depending on the day and my headspace this can be interpreted in very different ways.
I interpreted “you are exactly where you need to be” by looking at patience vs. urgency and here’s how...
Certain things take time to cultivate but which ones?
Does patient mean complacent?
Urgency breeds action but is it the right action?
Have we become impatient with having access to the world at our fingertips?
Relationships, family, careers, love, trust… these take time to develop. These are a journey not a destination. We need to understand that these overarching parts of life are not a click of a button and purchased through Amazon. They require work, dedication and connection.
Forgiveness, accountability, passion, freedom, authenticity… these can be applied in little to no time. These are a part of us no matter where we go. So applying these with urgency can serve the overarching parts of life. But apply urgency to for example: trust rather then building it through being authentic or forgiving rarely works.
