One of my Platinum Coaching clients – I’ll call her Sylvia – lives in the U.K.
The shrinky behavior (or rather, “behaviour”) of the fear-addicted main stream has affected the company she works for, and she was informed recently that several members of her team have been “sacked” or “made redundant.”
Apparently, there are more sackings on the way.
Sylvia’s co-workers are walking around as if the sky were going to fall. Fear, anxiety and much drama are taking over the office environment.
Sylvia has been working with me for a while, and she knows that drama and fear are unproductive. Last fall, Sylvia had begun to explore the idea of starting her own business. So, the advice I gave her about her office situation has empowered her and helped her create a whole new mindset:
Live as if you were sacked already.
Or, translated to American English:
Live as if you were fired already.
Sylvia has made a list of things to do in order to get her business up and running and to find her ideal residence. One by one, she is tackling items on this list on her “mandatory” day off. (Compliments of her managers.) She is letting go of excess “stuff” in her life by visiting her storage unit and making items “redundant.” She is watching her mindset with keen awareness, knowing that her thoughts have a powerful effect on her emotions and outcomes.
The result is amazing.
In an environment where she is expected to chew on her nails and worry about the inevitability of loss, Sylvia is waking up with energy and renewed purpose. She shows up for work and does her job – but she is taking her power back. If she does get sacked, she knows there will be challenges – but she is teaching herself that they are manageable and that she has the power to create new outcomes.
I got an email from her yesterday. After listing each item she had accomplished, she had this to say:
“This is freaking amazing! I’m happier and more excited now than I’ve been for years – yet all around me (every company I work in) are sacking people and making them redundant!!! What is going on!? It’s Crazy and Wow at the same time!”
What’s going on is this:
When you take your power back and stop being scared of what others (or the economy, or politics, or your mean ex-girlfriend) can DO TO YOU, you step into the true reality where you get to decide each day how to create your life.
