TRY Coaching – Power of Being Young at Heart
A friend sent me a link to George Burns singing “I Wish I Was Eighteen Again”.
Nostalgia set in and the song catapulted me back in time to my youth and I realized how quickly the pages of life turn. We can’t go back in time however, we can be “young at heart” no matter how old we are.
Franz Kafka, writer, seems to agree : “Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
I know this sounds counterintuitive as we are stressed with the changes and challenges that life presents each day, however, if we don’t step back and look at life from the “young at heart” perspective, we’ll miss life’s beauty and wonderment.
As an executive coach, I find that clients, who come to me because they are challenged and stressed out on a daily basis, never seem to stand in the “remembering to tap into young at heart” perspective. Once they begin to embrace this perspective, they find that even though they are challenged and chaos can be swirling around them, they remember to take a deep breath, smile and find that happy place.
When was the last time you were able to find balance within yourself, even when challenged, just by finding that perspective that brought back a “young at heart” sensation or feeling?
Oh you can’t! In that case, I strongly suggest you find that place now and enjoy life even when life throws curveballs
George Burns did and he died at 100.
