I’ve talked a lot about taking this time as an opportunity for growth. Whether that’s personal growth by way of self-development or more practical pursuits like work and home-life.
I want to take this a little further today and provide you with some information that has not only inspired me but also helps in getting truly practical about using this time as an opportunity.
I have a lot of mentors. Most of them I don’t know personally and may never meet but they inspire me nonetheless.
When I’m feeling stuck about life or work, I am usually very unproductive. I feel stressed and go into a bit of ‘woe is me’ with everything that applies to my life. When this happens, I know that it’s because I haven’t been actively growing. I haven’t been working on my personal journey, what matters to me, what feeds my soul and what helps me grow.
At times like these, I stop and I start learning.
This recently happened to me and so I found myself absorbing learning from one of my favourites, Jay Shetty through his podcast. He had an interview there with one of my mentors, Robin Sharma. Robin was the catalyst to get me into coaching. I was astounded at how much our thinking was alike – even before I chose to go down the coaching path. I discovered Robin on my healing journey from depression. He is an author and leadership coach, seriously incredible and can articulate so beautifully, what I share more practically within my practice with clients.
Whilst listening to this show, they talked about mindset and how this seems to be the path that everyone is speaking about at the moment. Now I lead with this too in my work but the ‘sets’ are woven into my work with clients. And that’s what I want to talk about today.
Your Heartset, your Healthset, your Mindset and your Soulset – from Robin Sharma’s book, The 5am Club. I hope that it inspires you as much as it has me.
