Are you grateful for all you have or do you pine for what you haven’t? Do you wish you could shift your perspective and focus to gratitude and excitement?
Every august makes me reflect. It’s the last month of my financial year and more years than not, I end up being been amazed I have made it that far. In many ways 2020 is no different, when lockdown began I admit I did panic for the unknown. But now… I have noticed something dramatic has happened.
The focus of my world has really shifted!
My refections no longer come from fear, frustration and negativity. They come from gratitude and excitement in equal measure for all that is happening in my world.
I really have loved this last 12 months. Surrounded by some wonderful people, working with the most amazing clients, and being thanked for what I have done. That didn’t always happen…
I have loved the time and space recent months have given me. While the reasons for it are heartbreaking, my initial panic was quickly replaced by the motivation. To do all I could to look after me and my Hundred Acre world.
The perception of having extra time, gave me space to ponder what was important each day and to focus on that. What mattered was what was directly in front of me and nothing else.
As much as I have been able to I have continued to invest in working with a coach. The support from Karen and my Mastermind has been a constant for a while now. I have also invested more time and energy into my continuing development by studying coaching myself.
That investment is leading me to appreciate where I am and be excited for where my Hundred Acre world is heading next. At the start of 2020 I became DISC accredited and the more I learn about coaching the more it adds to the support I offer my clients.
The work I do has a few different perspectives, whether it’s with companies or individuals, short term projects or longer term support doesn’t matter. They all come from the same place. They all want my help. While I can’t take the accountability they hold away, what I can do is support them with understanding something they haven’t done before.
It is always far nicer when I’m approached by someone who is proactive in wanting help rather than when something has gone wrong, but reality is they have all made the decision to keep themselves, their company and their staff healthy and safe.
To me there is no ‘No’ in health and safety. There are challenges and barriers at times but the right perspective and a team working together can make anything happen. That has never been more important than it is now.
If this has made you think and you would like to discuss any of the thoughts raised or are looking for some support with something in your world, I would love to hear from you. Get in touch – send a message or book a call to see how I can help you.
Hundred Acre – Everyone’s Safe Place 💚
