If we take a step backward to observe ourselves from within, what would be the emotional states dominating us over the period of a day? Would they be positive or negative states? To which extent are we allowing our feelings to turn us into powerless human beings?
Words are powerful. Once they are released they can’t be pulled back. Are we owning the powers over our words. To which extent do we use our words to create and shape the life we wish to live and the relationships we hope to have?
As a human being we all have four main powers. The power of thoughts, the power of feelings, the power of words and the power of actions. How powerful are you? Are you owning the powers of your thoughts?
My heart is aching. Yes. It is aching. Exploring with the teenagers I coach the obstacles they face and which catch them from moving forward in life I feel devastated. Labelling. Whether it’s done by a parent, a family member, a teacher or a trainer. Labelling is one common factor behind the teens’ struggles. It starts with a label an adult uses, hoping to let the teenager perform or behave in a better way. ‘Stupid’, ‘Slow’, ‘Ugly’, ‘Fat’, ‘Impolite’ are just few examples. The teenager, trusting the adult figure, starts to believe this label and considers it as a part of his identity. With repetition, the label gets reinforced in the subconscious and the teenager starts to act accordingly.
Labelling. It breaks my heart seeing real gems struggling in life and living with poor self-confidence because of labelling.
Fear. One of the common obstacles between many of us. We fear to change. Our mind plays tricks. ‘If I change I will no longer belong to my social groups’, ‘If I change my life system will collapse’, ‘If I change I will lose my identity’..these are some of the statement I repeatedly hear as a Coach.
