At some point in time we ALL do this, deliberately put off the things we know we need to just do. I’m not talking about avoiding the dishes or washing a load of clothes. I mean the deep, tremendous, monumental steps we need to take toward the dreams, goals, and aspirations we hold for our lives. These steps – whether big or small are just the amount of effort or pressure we need in order realize the results we say we want.
Your dream may be to become a rock star, save more money, have more peace at home, or improve your relationships with the people at work. When you ignore that initial nudge to address important issues the pressure intensifies like some galactic Jedi force.
Think about the pressures you're experiencing right now that's compelling you to take the very action you're hesitant to do. Maybe it's the difficult conversation about money you need to have with your partner, the self-advocating negotiation for a promotion you need to have with your boss, or the frightening medical prognosis you wish you never heard. The pressure you feel is designed to move you through, providing you the space to develop and evolve so that you reap the rewards and gain the conviction to know that the pressure was really a gift.
Yep, I said it! The pressure you feel can be a gift. It moves you forward, gives you courage, and challenges you to be your best self. The wonderful thing is you don't have to try to figure out how to face life's pressures alone. Working with a Design You Coach gives you the support and tools you need to work through the pressure…and unearth your diamonds.
