You Can't Stop Thinking!
Because you are human, your brain is constantly at work, whether you are awake or asleep, whether you are concentrating or daydreaming, your brain is constantly thinking.
The goal of coaching isn’t to turn off your brain or to even control your thoughts.
The goal is to be able to be aware of your thoughts and to have the power to manage your thoughts.
You CANNOT control all of your thoughts.
There are Different Types of Thoughts
This is not an all-inclusive list. These are just a few common thoughts.
YOU, Your Thoughts, Models, and Ways of BEing
Your thoughts drive your model.
Your thoughts reflect your way of BEing.
This is why it is so important to BE the thinker of your thoughts.
Are You the Hero of Your Stories?
The stories you tell reflect your thoughts.
Stories show up in how we talk to others and how we talk to ourselves.
I call the stories in your own head your personal narrative.
It’s important to be aware of these stories and how they impact our lives.
In your stories, you can either show up as the hero or the victim.
If you’re like most parents, you’ve been guilty of positioning yourself as the victim from time to time.
This usually looks like blaming others and/or complaining about others. This looks like focusing on things outside of your control.
When you position yourself as the hero, you take responsibility and you focus on things within your control.
The stories you allow yourself to tell impact how you feel and act.
Your stories create your reality.
