Did you watch the Olympics? I did, and, as usual, I was amazed. I am heading into March feeling inspired and energized by the examples of people stretching and achieving in the face of incredible challenges and odds. The key piece—most, if not all, of those athletes are pursuing their passions and taking them beyond the level most people even dream of.
When I coach my clients, I see one of my roles as that of helping them stretch the boundaries of their comfort zones and create a bigger picture of possibilities for themselves. The interesting thing is, when we stretch and expand—the right way—it doesn’t create a feeling of overwhelm or overload, it actually makes things feel more expansive and creates a sense of ease and freedom.
Sometimes we play too small (or we don’t play at all) because we feel stuck in scarcity—we don’t know how to get beyond that feeling of not having enough time or energy or resources. It’s a big mistake, and one that just keeps us working too hard on a hamster wheel where we never exactly get where we want to go.
This week I’m going to be blogging about places that busy women get stuck and my tips for stepping off the hamster wheel and moving toward those things you want to achieve.
Stay tuned—and let me know what you think. Leave a comment if you have a Gold Medal Excuse you’d like me to address.
Take good care,
