"Be Here Now"
Your Success Thought for the Week of December 5, 2007
I received numerous comments following my November 7th Success Thought entitled 'Coaching Wisdom,' where I explored the distinction between being in 'your story' vs. 'present moment.'
As you may recall, 'your story' is something stuck in your mind that has little to do with today's reality. For example: looking at your 30-year-old business executive son and still seeing him as your ten-year-old. If you are, instead, in-the-moment with the impressive young man he's become, your interaction are more rewarding.
Many Ah-Ha moments were shared by readers, like the COO who stopped taking his family for granted that day (his 'story' was that he was the only one in the family with pressures.) Peter instead looked more compassionately into his wife and children's eyes and started asking more questions. The result is increased spontaneity, laughter, and intimacy. Peter's choice to be in-the-moment benefited his entire family.
At your request, below are the top five techniques that help my clients stay in-the-moment when the world around them is moving too fast and they are deluged with stories about pressure, stress and 'no way out:'
All of these techniques take time to develop. Only you can judge if it is time well spent. Experiment with the technique that spoke to you the most this week and let me know how it goes for you. It's always rewarding to hear back from my readers.
Want a little cheater sheet reminder about these tips to cut out and put into your wallet so you can sneak a peek when you need to? Here you are!
Enjoy your discoveries and have an outstanding week.
P. S. We'd love to hear how you used our 'Success Thought of The Week' in your business or personal dealings.
