As a life coach, I’m quite often asked what I think are the main concerns that people have. What I see is that the concerns and worries about the future get in the way of our enjoying and finding peace in the moment. Not only that but these concerns can contribute to our being ineffective.
There’s that balance. We should have concerns about the future, but to go forward so that we’re focusing on each step and that we’re enjoying the journey.
Imagine you are climbing a mountain. It could be hiking or mountain biking. In the beginning you look up at the top of the mountain. But if your focus is only there, you won’t notice the beautiful scenery along the way; the trees, the wildlife, the streams and all of the beauty that there is to experience.
There might be times when you need a rest, so you take some time to relax. You notice what’s around you. Then you continue climbing toward your goal.
It’s that concern with getting there that gets in the way of your enjoying the moment.
You have reached this place in your life. Assess where you are and be grateful for what you have and what you’ve accomplished. Be grateful for the tools and resources that you have that can move you forward in your life.
You can let go of the past. You can think bigger. You are ready to climb a higher part of the mountain.
