Building on last week’s episode where I talked about visioning and dreaming, and then adding in the other two states of resisting and reflecting, I realised this week that there was another state missing: right now! Listen to learn more about this week’s challenge!
Hi there, and welcome to this week's mini episode of The Curious Coach Podcast. Last week, you might remember that I was talking about the difference between two different terms: visioning and dreaming. And then during that week, I expanded my thinking with an article on LinkedIn, where I took two different dimensions and plotted them on a graph to create four different quadrants.
I had past versus future and inaction versus action. And that lead me to create or plot, those four different states: dreaming, reflecting, resisting and visioning. If you want to know what those different terms mean then please go back and read the article.
However, it also occurred to me, that there's another state on that quadrant graph that I didn't show. And that's right in the centre, right at that point between past and future and inaction and action. It's actually right in the moment. It's being fully present. In the now!
Eckhart Tolle talks beautifully about it in his book, The Power of Now. Its where we're either moving towards the future, wishing our life away so to speak. Or reflecting or ruminating about the past. And it's not about taking action or not taking action, it's simply about being fully immersed in this present moment; experiencing everything that there is to experience, right now.
What are you noticing?
What are you feeling?
What's coming up for you?
How wonderful would it be for us to be able to take a moment, and to be... right here, right now. Fully present! So that's my challenge for you this week, is to figure out how to take that moment and do it!
Now, it might mean maybe trying some meditation, or going for a walk in nature, where you simply immerse yourself in the surrounds and notice, with great detail, everything that's out there. What do you see? What do you feel? What are you experiencing? And truly bring everything to life, right in that moment.
Now, as always, I'd love to hear how you got on and maybe what worked and what didn't work for you, in trying to be fully present in this moment.
So, if you're watching on LinkedIn, please leave me a comment below this video. And if you're listening on the podcast, maybe drop me an email to email@example.com
And as always... until next week... stay curious!
