It’s your house, is it designed to support you and who you are becoming?

So I have chosen to step up my game lately. I am currently creating an agenda in order to really move forward with my life. Which is great. But one of the things which I know I need to look at if I really intend on moving forward without a lot of resistance, is my environment. Or more specifically, the 9 areas of my environment and to see if they support where I am headed and, if not, what I need to do in order to shift them to do so.

Nine areas? you ask? How can there be nine areas in your environment? And how can they not support you? This is actually pretty easy. The 9 environments include: Relationships, Network, Finances, Technology, Physical, Spiritual, Self, Body and Memetic. And the question is, do they work for you?

In Coaching, Proficiency number 14 is Assisting the Client to Create Supportive Environments. It’s part of the definition of what a Coach does. So over the next 5 weeks, I will be writing about each of these environments, the questions which will help you, and me, to elicit information and opportunities to change, along with some suggestions about how each environment can be improved or possibly where to find information on how to develop more supportive ways of being and doing which reflect what you are trying to bring forward.

This will be fun! What area would you like to work on? Where do you see room for improvement?

Things to think about. Until next time.

ATTACK!!! Or it really is how you say it!

Today’s blog is about language. And how the choices we make can make or break a conversation or cause upset when it was never the intention.

The conversation I had yesterday is as follows:
