And What If it Were Easy?

What if it were easy? I mean, we tend to make things so hard, and overly complicated. And then we ruminate on how hard it is. Ever catch yourself doing that? That's when I ask myself "What if it were easy?" 

That question is what we in the coaching arena refer to as a "pattern interrupt."

Pattern interrupt is a technique to change a particular thought, behavior or situation. Behavioral psychology and NLP (neuro linguistic programming) use this technique to interrupt and change thought patterns and behaviors.

"What if it were easy?" [followed by] "What would I do next?" opens the path forward.

It helps me (and clients) exit the linguistic figure 8 race track I'm/they're zooming around on. It helps one get UNSTUCK.

It diverts attention away from the old "story" one is caught up in telling and quickly onto a different path. It's a change in focal point. Therefore, a change in story (possibilities) is immediately available.

Why is that a good idea? Because people just need to see it. They need an opportunity to see the other possibilities they were cutting themselves off from by focusing on the previous focal point. They just need to keep the ball rolling in a positive direction. They need to make progress.

Building the life you want is a matter of choice.

Settling for the one you have is also a choice. It's as easy as choosing the red diary or the blue one. Surely you see that. ??? After all, if not choice, then what is it? Not having the life you truly want is...someone else's fault? 

When did you fall for the lie that it's someone else's responsibility to create your dream life for you? Or that someone else could hold you back without your permission?

And there is the sting. If someone else is holding you back you ARE giving them your permission. Therefore, it's a choice. 


Time to move forward. Time to #GoForIt. Time to Live deliberately.

If it were easy, what would you do next?

Today is the day to #GoForIt and #Live Deliberately.
