Today’s reflection – What are you hanging your hat on?

Our coaching session was just about to wrap-up for the day when I asked him a question that caught him off-guard, “So what’s your purpose?”

Without breaking the flow of our conversation, and resisting the temptation  to mentally drift back into the safe harbor of “I need to ‘think’, ‘pray’, or ‘meditate’ on it”, he confidently told me what he had so far learned about himself and the value he was destined to bring to friends, family, loved ones, and the world.

After making his declaration and soaking briefly in the moment, George  also mentioned that while having his purpose known and out in the open, while exciting, was also a little bit on the scary side.

Here’s what we worked through together.

With greater clarity as to his purpose in life (we’re not quite yet at 100% but are getting dangerously close), he realized that he can no longer hang his hat on the excuse or self-imposed limitation that he, for years, may have inadvertently grown to rely on – “But I don’t know my purpose.”

To continue his momentum and growth - He now has to act on that which he is embracing.

Today’s reflection:

  1. Are you hanging your hat on a peg that’s actually holding you in place? (I don’t have the right credentials. I don’t know the right people. I don’t live in the right area.)
  2. What two questions, if you knew the answer to, would immediately change the way you understood yourself and your contribution?
  3. Like George, are you ready to rattle your own cage?
