Are You Expecting Too Much Of Yourself? Too Little?

Are You Expecting Too Much Of Yourself? Too Little?
Take time to explore your expectations from past and present. Are you content or ready for change?

Perhaps it comes down to balance. If you’re content 90% of the time, you’ve probably worked out the “too much—too little” issue. If you’re feeling listless, useless, without a purpose or vision, or overwhelmed, stressed, without time for yourself, this may be a time to consider a change. You know, sometimes it is as easy as just deciding to change. That’s one way some smokers and overeaters have done it. What’s a way you might find a balance between “too much” and “too little”?

What might the changes be? John Ruskin, over 100 years ago, said "What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do." One less TV program so you have time for a pet project? Shutting off the phone or computer at 8 or 9 pm instead of 11:00? Repeating Louise Hay’s affirmation “I approve of myself” as many times a day as you get a dissatisfied
feeling about yourself? Taking in what friends say about how much you expect of yourself? Taking five to 55 minutes every day just to daydream, to journal, to sing, to express yourself? I’ve taken turns doing several of these. What can wait? What can’t?

How about taking the next 20 or so minutes to write down the areas of your life where you perhaps expect too much of yourself.  Where might you expect too little? Finally, what is one change in your life that could lead  more balance? Will you do it?

If you'd like to explore your expectations, or any other area of your life, call me for a complimentary 30 minute coaching session. I'm at 206-938-8385.  Moreah

What do you do when you feel stuck? None of us care to feel tied down.

What do you do when you're not staying on track but you really want to? What stops you from doing the most important things first? I wonder if you identify with my story. A few years ago, I told good friends I wanted to write a book and that I'd do an essay every day. That shouldn't have taken more than an hour for 200+ words, ... Read more

Stop Looking; Start Asking. You Can Have It!

Have you ever wondered if there was an easier way to have what was important to you? What if all you needed to do to find a partner or a job or anything that mattered was a clear awareness of who you are and who you want to be?
