TRY Coaching –Power of Being Flexible
Today’s business landscape is both challenging and uncertain and definitely tougher to navigate.
It’s enough to create a sense of anxiety and stress as we look at what’s going on. However, these emotions don’t lead to progress and opportunity
The world is changing, perhaps faster than any of us would like. Yet our personal success and happiness rely on our ability to be flexible and adapt to changes, instead of worrying about changes beyond our control. If we look at life through this perspective we can learn to embrace flexibility.
Each day we make choices – whether with partners in a corporate/business environment, in relationships with family and friends, and even with ourselves. While we respond to life’s ups and downs, we constantly seek to stay balanced, while sometimes walking the proverbial tightrope without net to catch us.
Debasish Mridha, philosopher and author said The measure of a person’s strength is not their muscular power or strength, but it is their flexibility and adaptability”.
In finding balance through flexibility, we must let go of old and out of sync perspectives that keep us stuck because they feel comfortable and safe. However, once we let go of the beliefs that don’t serve us anymore, we are free to consider new thought processes that allow us to experience life to the fullest, both personally or professionally. Making these changes can be challenging, but with practice and perseverance, they do happen.
As an executive coach, I work with clients in helping them move through change by allowing themselves to be open to being flexible and adaptable to situations that had otherwise seemed unattainable. In fact, by changing their viewpoint, clients are amazed at how quickly they are able to overcome a given situation and succeed where they never imagined possible.
Being flexible and open to shifting gears in difficult times when we want to fall back on our “old standbys” takes courage and risk. However, if we can find that inner strength to stand solidly in a place of resolve and steadiness, we may find it easier to accomplish our goals.
What small steps can you take to create greater flexibility in your life?
•Look at certain beliefs that haven’t served you and see if by shifting your mindset another viewpoint comes into focus that serves you better.
.What approaches have you not been willing to change? Perhaps review one and see if changing a belief, will help create a better served approach.
