There are times in our lives that lend themselves really well to making a change.
Last Thursday (October 10th) was World Mental Health day so it was particularly timely that I got to spend the day at the Royal College of Physicians in Liverpool.
The only guarantee when we step up into a bigger role, grow a business or try something new is that not everything is going to go swimmingly. Failure is never comfortable but if we embrace it instead of pushing it away, it will have a much smaller hold on us and the lives we want to live.
One of the first things a coaching client will tell me is that they need help taking action.
Often, that is actually the last thing they need. They are already knee-deep in action.
The bigger the role, the greater the action – and it’s coming out of their ears!
Drama causes unnecessary conflict in our lives. Stopping and taking a step back can help to change the way you think about and react to drama situations you find yourself in – leading to a calmer, more stress-free life.
