SO MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE TRY TO BIND ME
and yet underneath all these things
what i have always been
F R E E
freedom is my birthright
freedom is who i am.
through the work that i do
and the ELI assessment (from ipec coaching) that i offer
it is very clear to me
how stress changes everything.
not just in me, but in all of us.
in our workplace, in our interactions, in our personal lives
stress changes our ability to show up fully.
i see that so clearly in my life.
what i am capable of doing in my day to day normal life
is so much greater than how play when i am stressed.
at first i thought i was unique
until i started doing this assessment on the people i work with
and i saw, we are all the same.
releasing those triggers that cause us stress
changes the game.
sometimes they are easy to find
other times they are hidden.
i know it is hard to find them on my own
and it is this knowing
that makes me realize how powerful
it is to have a great coach.
knowing how to go underneath
those things that cause us to play protect ourselves
put up walls
and play small
is the difference between a business or a person
that thrives and one that simply plays the game.
it feels good to feel free again
free of stress
free of self judgement
free of needing to please others.
as the bike rider in this picture
my road still has a long way to take me
but i now celebrate
these moments of freedom
and shout out
to the citizens of my mind
I AM FREE !
repeat after me
I AM FREE.
can you feel it?
