Imagine being out in the wilderness on a beautiful spring day. There is a stream flowing downhill filled with colorful fish, rocks and leaves. The birds are singing and you can feel the sun shining on your face. Ahhhhh! You start to walk along the stream and follow a school of fish swimming by. Up ahead, you notice some bark from a tree is blocking part of the stream. Leaves and rocks are starting to form a barrier making it very difficult for the fish to pass through. It seems as though there is not enough room for the fish to move forward and break on through to the other side. Because of this “perceived” illusion, the fish start to give up. Now what? (Can you relate?)
As a life coach, one of the common topics clients want to focus on is moving forward in their lives when something is holding them back. Their goals, dreams and ideas are like the rocks and leaves in the stream. The stream represents the flow of life events and experiences. The tree bark and leaves are the fears, mental blocks and false beliefs that appear to hold them back from moving forward. With coaching, I help clients become aware of all the paths in the stream of their minds they might not have seen. We discover ways to put a plan of actions in place to take action, grow and change.
What’s holding you back from moving forward? Now is the perfect time to dive into the stream of change.
