Bridge Your “Action” to Your Want

What causes you the most stress?

One of the major root causes of stress is the disconnect between wants/goals and action.

Think about your own stress.

Describe what stresses you out.

Now sort which of your stressors reveal a gap between what you say you want and what you actually do in any given week.

This is true for me.

I have a confession to make.

Easily 65% of the stress in my life falls into this category.

I have all these beautiful coaching skills to manage my mind, create my best results, and yet…

Sometimes I just don’t have alignment between what I claim to want with all of my heart and the choices that I make on any given day.

In other words, I don’t follow through on my intention with matching action.

Look at your life — health, business/career, family.

Do you see areas where the “do” doesn’t match the “desire”?

This is a gold mine of information about yourself.

When you notice the “want” vs. “do” gap, pause and do the following:

If you take the time to do this work, you will be well rewarded.

If what you do doesn’t match what you say you want, well, that’s valuable information.

It’s an opportunity to reflect, learn and recalibrate.

Then…you have an opportunity to make a decision. You can choose to…

In your gut, you probably know what’s best for you.

Pay attention to yourself, your gaps and then choose to do what you really, really want!
