On reflection I can see how nonsensical that belief is - now!

Dear <<First Name>>,

I let go of a belief last week because it wasn’t working for me.

I tried and tried to make it work and had failed at every trying.

As I noticed the repeated failure, I went back to the belief that was driving the doing.

A belief that because the first series of my podcast, landscaping Your Life, had 21 episodes the second series should too!

On reflection I can see how nonsensical that belief is - now!

I had 19 in this series in the bag, knew the 21st was an episode of highlights, and just needed to record the 20th.

Boy - did that belief have me trying a variety of different topics for that 20th in the series.
  • A possible episode about ‘testing the water’ felt like I was in a drought.
  • A possible episode about being ‘under the weather’ felt like I was in the doldrums with no weather to be found.
  • A possible episode about being ‘down’ felt like there was no ‘up’ to be seen.
I’d even suggest my struggle on the last recorded and now live episode about being ungrounded/grounded (#40) was this pattern making itself known even then.

I just didn’t listen.

I should know myself well enough that if a podcast or vlog require more than 2 or 3 attempts the time is not right - the thinking not yet fully formed.

I just tried to push through because of a nonsensical belief.

As the podcast deadline approached, and I tried yet again to record the episode, I realised a series of 20 episodes was good enough.

I spent a happy hour or so pulling the series finale of highlights together and, thanks to Pete Garbacz, it’s now ready to listen to here

What nonsensical belief may be driving too much doing in your life?
Here’s the final extract (from episode 38) that I included in the episode of highlights:
It was recorded after I’d used the beach at St Andrews to embody bridging the gap between:
  • Where I am (location A at the edge of the sand with back to the sand dunes)
  • Where I want to b (location B at the edge of the retreating sea)
As you’ll hear in the full episode I got loads from being in each position and traversing back and forth between the two. And certainly, returned to ‘where I am’ with less resistance and stress about taking the leap between the two.
If you’re wanting to bridge the gap in your life the Take a giant leap 12 week coaching programme may be just what you need – have a read of the brochure or get in touch to arrange a call to explore whether it would be a great fit for you at this time.

With much love,

Alison xx
