There’s a folk tale about a wise old man who sat outside the walls of a great city.
When travelers approached, they would ask the old man, “What kind of people live in this city?”
The old man would answer, “What kind of people live in the place where you came from?”
If the travelers answered, “Only bad people live in the place where I came from,” the old man would reply, “Continue on; you will find only bad people here.”
But if the travelers answered, “Good people live in the place where I came from,” then the old man would say, “Enter, for here too, you will find only good people.”
Remember, what you perceive of people, events and in the world around you is reflecting something back to you – about YOU.
And here’s the good news…when you change the world around you changes too.
The fact is that you rarely describe what you see. Instead, you see what you describe.
People have a tendency to respond based on their past experiences and expectations.
That means you will repeatedly look for what you’ve always seen, even if the situation before you is new.
Think about this: what perceptions no longer serve you and you need to let go of?
Your opportunity to chat…
I’m passionate about inspiring people to tap into their unique talents and strengths – to be the best they can be – to fulfill the potential they always knew they had. It’s not about ‘fixing’ you. Rather, it’s about helping you access the best part of yourself so you’re able to make the changes, release the dragons and powerfully step into your brilliance.
