It can be amazing what we ‘think’ about ourselves… and what our reality is….
I’ve done several exercises both myself and with my clients this year on taking measures to clearly see one’s own reality.
How did we do this? What were the outcomes? You will be amazed!
Why don’t you be amazed at your own self and learn something insightful by learning about our Spiritual Coaching Programs, reading this article and committing to this easy exercise yourself?
Client Example No.1 – Drinking
Belief: I only drink 5 standard drinks per week
Activity: Stepped back through the previous week with his wife counting exactly how many drinks, where they drank, who were they with etc etc
Reality: 13 standard drinks were consumed
Reason for incorrect belief: Client thought he drank a lot less than everyone else around him, his drinks paled in comparison however still added up and was nowhere close to his reality.
Outcome: greater awareness of alcohol consumption resulted in reduced ‘actual’ drinking habits to match desired number of 5.
Client Example No. 2 – Sport
Belief: I always stand at least 4 feet behind the baseline of the tennis court when returning.
Activity: Set up a camera only capturing the area 4 feet behind the baseline
Reality: Client was NEVER in the video thus they were never actually standing 4 feet behind the baseline like they thought
Reason for incorrect belief: Disillusioned!
Outcome: Consciously stepped way back behind the baseline to practice actually successfully returning from there
My Example! Hours worked as a small business owner
Now this is my example and I did this because I know I’m an action oriented person, I love my work, people have the perception of me that I work A LOT of hours in my coaching business but I also felt that well I don’t work ‘that’ much because I am constantly taking time off whenever I want…
Belief: I may work 40 hours but maybe up to 50+ or more hours per week…
Activity: Set up a time sheet of actual hours worked
Reality: Over an entire month I averaged 41.5 hours per week
Reason for incorrect belief: Just didn’t know because my personal life is priority, work fits around that and coaching never really feels like work to me!
Outcome: Consciously more aware of time and hours spent working, increased focus time of those hours which generated and even greater productivity, even better business in the same number of hours!
Take the time to do this activity on some aspect of your life
- it could be how much sleep you actually get, your exercise reality, food intake or how much time you in fact spend quality time with your partner or kids.
Sometimes it can work in reverse! Especially with achievements at work – Often people can feel that they’re not getting anywhere but when they actually look back and reflect they have sometimes moved mountains!!
Live Your Best Life!
