How to grow
Last Friday I was in a big leadership event with one of my clients. I took notes while the VP made his inspirational intro to the day. He said that we should embrace our development areas and that being on the right track does not mean we make no mistakes or that the path is always clear. We have to focus on a few things and we have to not only be technical experts in what we do, but also foster our personal growth.
In that context I like to share the following graph that I saw today on Facebook from my friend Helen Attridge, Director at the Academy of Coaching & NLP in the UK. She elaborates on growth of consciousness and asks the question where every one of us is at present. Well…a good one isn’t it?
Personally I see my path of grow since 2004 when I started my journey of personal development on a very conscious path. I sometimes really felt as victim and that I cannot change things. Overtime I grew and saw the unit of action / reaction as well as the context and the dependency in-between the elements.
And now you may ask? Oh well… when regularly meditating, while being in my ZEN retreats the world starts to get even more connected: I understand what was unclear years back, I get insights I could not be aware of as I never paid attention to. I feel that there is my place in this world and I sometimes get humble about all the elements in life.
But that is not all the time the case, sometimes there are moments of a victim feeling, or moments of control – moments is where the focus is. Having done the path so far it gets easier to proceed to further levels of consciousness. However no one of us humans is protected to fall back, see unclear, make mistakes. It all depends how fast you get conscious about what you do and that you learn from your mistakes. Kathrin
