When you find yourself in a tough situation, ask yourself the question.
“how would the person I want to be handle this?”
Several months ago my coach asked me to get clear on two things:
What do I want?
Who do I want to be?
He said “get crystal clear on these two things, and then live into them.”
At the time I thought I knew what he meant but later I realized I only partially understood what he meant. One of the ways to “live into” who you want to be is to ask yourself that question every time you find yourself in a place of decision. Whether it’s a tough spot or just decision time.
Ask yourself “how would the person I want to be handle this.”
Try it out, let me know how it works.
