Often new clients are referred to me because they are "stuck". They are dis-satisfied with their lives, job, relationships, even routines can feel confining, It reminded me of a popular blog post I had written a few years back,
If you find your world has become very small, read on....
The view inside the fish tank
As we have all lived life, our experiences, parental values influences, and socio-economic status have all shaped how we view “our” worlds. Living day to day, we acquire routines, rituals, and ruts that may be really limiting the size of our world and what we can do.
Much like a fish in an aquarium, all the water and tank represent your surroundings, how you live, others in your life, your routines, your wasted time all-swirling about.
In an Aquarium when a fish gets sick, you must treat the whole tank to save the fish, this means cleansing the water, dumping all the pollutants in the environment.
How is being this fish in a tank any different than you and me?
Take a real close look at your surroundings. Is this environment working for you? Or are things around polluting your heart, your mind, your spirit, and limiting your view of the outside world?
Much like the built up algae that appears on the walls of the tank obstructing our broader view of the world…. Do you need to cleanse your tank? Then, get rid of the stuff that is polluting your world!
That may include the people you hang around. Business coach Jim Roan is quoted as saying “your income will become on average the same as 5 people you choose to hang around most".
Who are you associating with on a daily basis? Do you go to a job where you work in an environment where you are not respected? Your not encouraged to grow in a healthy balanced way. In your work and social circles you need to associate with individuals that have a higher degree of success, and learn success habits from THEM. Then a shift occurs in mindset and how you view your world.
I'm not suggesting you be something or someone your not, rather, reaching out to attain your purpose and full potential! (not what someone ELSE has dictated you "should" or "must do" to be successful).
Suddenly, you will act and feel differently. You will begin to see a world in a positive light as a successful person.
