The Way You Do Anything Is The Way You Do Everything
Do you agree that the way you do anything is the way you do everything? Let’s take a look at where it might be true for you.
When you have the opportunity to voice your opinion, do you speak up or do you hold back and let others talk first? Whichever is your truth, it is likely you do that in most every situation. This conversation is not about what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s about having the awareness so that you start making INTENTIONAL choices focused on your outcomes.
There are times it would certainly benefit you to speak up, and if you don’t choose it when it’s available because “that’s not what you do”, the opportunity will pass. You may not get it again. I personally detest that feeling in the pit of my stomach when I know I chose to remain in my comfort zone because of fear instead of asking for what I need or offering what I know.
There might also be some of you who have no problem offering your opinion, however, that too may bring its own set of challenges. Everyone will keep looking to you to make all of the decisions, rather than learning to trust themselves and make their own decisions. For you, getting out of your comfort zone is trusting others.
So, yes, likely the way you do anything IS the way you do everything. If you have control issues, you probably want to control everything. That’s got to be stressful. I know some of you are feeling me right now. The same would be true for those of you who are unwilling to take a risk. You will likely pass up everything that feels risky. What might you be missing out on?
The key here? Take a look at how you do anything and find the parallels to some of the challenges you have in your life. Start making different choices based on your outcomes instead of based on what’s comfortable or what’s habit. I promise you will create some awesome new possibilities for yourself and others!
Let’s apply this right now. Over the next 30 minutes take a look at everything you do and think about where else that is showing up in your life. Is that behavior/choice benefiting you and moving you towards the things you really want in your life? If the answer is no, it is time to make a new choice. Create some new possibilities for yourself today!
