Have you ever felt like you
Have you ever said �if only
______________ would happen���(my boss would
understand me, the economy would get better, my
co-workers would understand my point of view, my
customers would start buying again) then I could
move on with ______________ (my current project,
my career, my life, my next step).�
I recently read an article
entitled �The ah-ha moment�. In it a very
successful TV sitcom star told the following
had gone to a very elegant and plush SPA.
Part of her treatment was to go into an �old
fashioned� steam cabinet where only her head was
the attendant was assured that she was
comfortable, the attendant left the room. Our star
began to feel claustrophobic.
She knew that she was �locked-in� and
therefore began to self-administer panic attack
She tried to imagine that she was flying,
free as a bird, she tried to do deep breathing
relaxation techniques, at one point she almost
allowed herself to succumb to an unconscious
that moment the attendant returned and cheerfully
told her that her time was up. When the totally
depleted star asked the attendant to unlock the
cabinet � she replied clearly that there was no
lock and that whenever she was ready, she could
was holding our TV star back?
was it about her thinking that made her
believe that she was �locked-in�?
was it that was buried deep in her belief
system that made her believe that she was not
did her fear come from, that was so deep that
she could not (or would not) see any
Are you in a �career stall�,
a career transition or are you simply �stuck�
with moving a project forward?
If so, how do you get over the feeling that
there is a latch and you are locked in? Whenever
you are in a situation that YOU FEEL trapped, ask
yourself the questions above. If you catch
yourself spinning out of control remember there is
no latch, you are not locked in.
All you have to do is to gently push and
you will be free to examine all of the options.
There is always an alternative to every
situation; you simply must search for it.
Congratulations, you have taken the
next step to deriving results from within.
