Ask YourselfIts All About You

By: Velma Gallant

Are there things in your experience that you do not want, and you’re not sure why they’re there?  Are you unclear how to change or shift those experiences?

When I feel this way, it always comes back to one thing.  It’s all about me.  It’s the same for you too.  It’s all about you.

That sounds a little bit weird, and it’s true.  Let me explain.

People who were (and are) important to me did not respect my business.  There were no tangible products they would buy.  They wouldn’t hire a coach.  I worked from home.  That’s not a “real job".

Over the years, I have come to understand that how people treat me was often a reflection of how I treat myself.

I had to ask myself, how was I not respecting my business?  Was I treating my business with the consistency of a job?  Did I set specific hours?  If I set certain tasks for myself, did I follow through?  Was I putting things off?  How could I respect my business (and myself) more?

Some of the things I shifted were giving myself a specific work space, and actually going there to work.  I blocked things off in my calendar, including my “me" time.  I printed my calendar and stuck it on the fridge so others in the family were aware of my schedule.

What’s one thing in your experience that you’d like to shift? 

Do you find people do not respect your time?  Ask yourself, are you respecting your time?

Do you find other people overstepping your boundaries?  Ask yourself, do you honor your boundaries?

This type of self-coaching question can lead to some pretty incredible shifts if you’re willing to look there.  This self-coaching can apply to all areas of your life, including relationships, business and health.

As you move through your day today, if you experience something “not quite right"Article Submission, check in.  See if there’s a self-coaching question you can ask yourself.

It’s all about you!  Ask yourself.
