Are You Working Too Hard On Yourself?

While working with my own coach, we were chatting about an area that I feel blocked in.

As any great coach does, many questions later, he called me on my stuff.

“Did you notice what you just said?”

“Ummm, no what?” I replied.

“When I asked you what it is that you truly want to transform in this area – you went right to yourself and said – I’m working on it.”

He went on to say: “Why are you treating yourself as if you’re a project? What if there is absolutely nothing that you need to work on, improve, or do in order to BE who you really are?

I sat there in silence thinking – I’ve probably said the same exact thing to my own coaching clients – but in that moment, it was the loudest Truth I had ever heard.

I’m sharing this example of my own coaching because I think in the New Age era where there are literal Self Help sections in the bookstore – we all need to question – what are we trying to help within ourselves vs. become within ourselves?

In that moment with my coach, I realized a lifetime pattern of treating myself, my life, and whatever was blocking me at that time – as a project – as something that has a start, finish and an end.

I realized that there was a very deep rooted belief that told me that I need to make-up for some type of lack vs. to simply realize the Truth which is – there is no lack within me….it’s a lie.

The Truth is – you’re infinite. The Truth is you’re expansive. The Truth is – you’re never, ever, ever done.

So, the lesson here is to know that when it comes to Self evolution – treating yourself as a project is the furthest thing from the Truth…and in order to become who you really are – it’s all about remembering vs. feeling like you need to add on anything to your beautiful, amazing Self.
