BECOME YOUR OWN CHAMPION!



       I will begin this piece with a confession!   

(Image ©2017 wytchwynd photography)
There have been points in my life where I really did not like myself.  

It has not always been a happy road that I travelled, but all that started to change 
during the early part of the 2000s.

This was the time when I first discovered coaching and began to realise that life didn’t HAPPEN TO ME, I happened upon life and made some pretty crap decisions and rubbish choices.

Up to that point there were times when I would look in the mirror and totally hate the person I saw looking back at me, I had made some pretty terrible decisions, I was, to a large extent, my own worst enemy.  I was really jealous of other people’s “good fortune” and thought “they’ve got it made, why the hell haven’t I got what they have?”

During that very first course I heard something that helped me begin to make sense of things and gave me some of the tools that I could use to begin the journey of change.

The phrases I heard were “our thoughts create our feelings” and “what we think about we become”

I took these phrases “on board” and they became two of the most important cornerstones for the building of the “new me”.  I began to work under those guidelines and over the coming months and years things really changed, my marriage got stronger and more loving, friends noticed that I had mellowed, opportunities presented themselves on a regular basis and I grabbed a lot of them and began to run with whatever came about.

However, that does not end with me skipping off into the sunset!  Yes! Life was good, it had definitely changed for the better, but there was still something that was not quite right.

And then I read something that helped me to see this…….. It was suggested in the article that I (and many people like me) might still be thinking “Violent Thoughts” towards ourselves and that these thoughts were likely to be holding us back from achieving our dreams.

My initial reaction was to ask the question “Violent thoughts?”

And so from researching this question it turns out that sometimes doubting our ability or skill can have the effect of stopping us from making progress and this is what is meant by “Violent Thoughts”

So I was minded to think of Henry Ford’s famous statement

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t. You are correct”
It has been suggested that our belief in our ability to succeed can be attributed to past achievements and the support of people who believe in us and the encouragement of seeing the success of someone else who is working in a similar way to the one we are.

But truth be told these are not the only building blocks we need, there is one more very important one and that is our emotional state.  We need to have a high self esteem and to love ourselves.

There also needs to be a realisation that if we want to go after and achieve our goals then we have to power through and make them happen.

Enter Mindfulness!

Practicing Mindfulness allows us to become more self-aware of the feelings and sensations that we encounter during the small actions, being non – violent in both our actions and our communication.

Take screen breaks at work
Use a softer pillow in bed at night
Add a blanket to your bed

These small acts of kindness to ourselves help to introduce new ways of being and as a result new neural pathways are formed this starts the transformation to a position of self love.

However, dark moments can still appear from time to time but you do not have to let them immobilise you.

So finally to close let me quote a few lines from Wild Geese (a poem by Mary Oliver)

You do not have to be good.  You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.  You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
