Levity in Life? Yours for the Having

Last week I gave a coaching session to a Canadian artist – something I do on occasion, when I meet someone who comes in with the right attitude and mindset.

A few days later, she writes an email saying this:

“Thank you again for an amazing 2 hours last Friday. I feel like a new person. It’s Sunday, and I feel like I am still maintaining the same energy from when our call ended. A weight has been lifted.
~ Zoey Zoric”

And that – a weight has been lifted – that’s exactly the outcome I like to help people reach.

Because yes, life is meant to be lived with effortless mastery.

But you can only get there if you’re willing to look in the mirror, and have the guts to drop those ‘safe and comfortable’ (they actually aren’t – they’re nothing more than self-made prisons) beliefs and viewpoints that make life heavy.

And when you’re willing to do that?

Then your life changes.

You experience creative resourcefulness, you get the outcomes you want, and you become far more effective and efficient.

So, can you identify with Zoey, in that: you want to drop what weighs you down, and you’re willing to work with the notion that the only change that will make it happen is the change that happens in you, your mind, and your way of thinking&feeling?

If that’s you, I’m curious what ‘weight’ in life you’d like to drop, and what your goals or ambitions are.

Drop me a line, let me know…

Cheers,

Martin

Of Helping and Hurting

Of course I like helping people. Every sane and healthy person does, if only because it confirms your values and makes you feel good about yourself. But helping people isn’t why I’m a coach – something I only figured out a few months ago. No, the real reason I coach people is because I hurt. […]

I’m Not Saying You Can Predict the Future, but: You Can Predict the Future

More specifically: you, the daily-life conscious individual you are, obviously can not predict the future, but: Your lizard brain kinda can. It’s the oldest part of the brain, way way older than the frontal cortex that enables you to think, and as such it’s got millions of years of evolutionary experience in perceiving things, extrapolating […]

The One Choice That Will Make or Break Your Happiness, Wellbeing, and/or Business

There’s three kinds of people, and the one you choose to be determines your happiness, wellbeing, and most of all, your results. The victim blames themselves for everything, and lives in misery. The one who blames others is a victim turned bully, and lives in anger and disapproval. I can’t imagine why anyone would want […]

Leaning Into Discomfort

Part of us knows what must happen in order for change or success or well-being to show up. On some level, we’re super-clear on what’s required of us. And when we’re not? Then the solution is extraordinarily simple: Do the thing you most resist. It’s there, where you’ve “reasons” for not doing them, that you’ll […]

Yes. No. Paradox. What???

This one might be a little taxing on the brain, but if you get today’s message, it’ll do you a lot of good. Here we go: Yes = No. Now most likely, reading that, your mind went something like ‘Uh, no dude. Of course not’. Which is precisely my point: Whatever we see or think […]

How’s Your Justification Hamster?

Ever notice how the mind tries to convince itself of things? Reasons and argues, in order to prove something as true or not true? It’s like a justification hamster running round in our minds, driving a thought-factory which outputs nothing but reasons why what we’re thinking or saying is true. Circular reasoning, stuck in a […]

Nobody is Crushing It?

That is correct. No matter what picture of success and wealth and awesomeness someone paints for us, it’s never the whole picture. Nobody is crushing it. You might think it’s all roses and money in that person’s life, but I guarantee there’s also consequences that ain’t all that fun. But we only get shown the […]

Guaranteed to Cause Radical Improvement in Any Relationship Real Quick

If there’s one thing guaranteed to ruin relationships, it’s blaming other people. This one doesn’t put the cap on the toothpaste, that one doesn’t eat their veggies, the bus driver acted like a jerk, your boss is an idiot, your father is selfish, your employees underperform, your competitor cheats, banks are swindlers and politicians are […]
