“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
If we have a dream, vision or ideal that we are reaching for — in our career, our life, our purpose — then we inherently have a problem because it’s still out there and we haven’t reached it yet.
To overcome that problem and accomplish that ideal, something has to change…and that something is us. We can’t go on doing and being the same way and achieve a different result. No growth, no goodies.
Embracing the “problem” of growth is the rub. There is clearly a gap between where we are now and where we want to be. The question is whether we can be empowered by the gap vs. disempowered. That’s a shift in being.
Seeing ourselves as enough even as we learn all that we don’t know, and giving ourselves compassion even as we fail forward fast: both may be tall orders.
Yet did any youth player ever make it to the big leagues without that recipe?
Where might you give your internal little leaguer an encouraging pat on the back today?
Got a problem?
“The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective – people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.”
