“I’ve been listening to Tony Robbins everyday for last few months to get me fired up in the morning ready for work. Lately thought, I’ve found it’s not having the same impact anymore. What’s wrong?”
That’s a question which came out of a coaching session last week.
If you’ve heard of Tony Robbins you’ll know he is a pretty awesome guy.
In fact it was his Personal Power 2 audio programme which really helped me to turn a corner in my life and he continues to inspire much of my work today.
But why had Tony’s words stopped working for my client?
Well, it’s because my client is like an onion. In fact we all are.
Let me explain.
The outer layers of an onion are pretty easy to peel away. With a little effect you quickly remove the outer skin to reveal the smooth white flesh underneath.
However, the closer you get to the core of the onion, the tighter together the layers are and the more effort it takes to remove them.
You can’t use the same technique, you have to change your approach.
You are no different when it comes to growth.
When you first discover new ways of thinking it can cause massive shifts in your life and you can experience a whole new world opening up in front of you.
You’re fired up. You’re excited.
I remember listening to my first Jim Rohn tape (Yes! that’s right tape!) as a 19 year old when I joined a Networking Marketing business.
It blew my mind.
I would listen to that tape every single day but there came a point when it just didn’t have the same impact anymore
It wasn’t the information that had changed.
I had changed. I’d shed the outer layers and my thinking had grown.
In order to get the same kind of initial stretch, I had to find different teachers with fresh ideas that would challenge me and push me in different ways.
For my client, it wasn’t that Tony’s teachings were any less powerful, it was that she had simply out grown him. He had stretched her, removed the outer layers and exposed her core.
To get the stretch she needed, she needs to change it up.
What does this have to do with you?
Let’s be honest, there are very few people who have perfection in every area of their life. Most of us have areas where we don’t have the same spark we once did or maybe we aren’t fired up in the same way we once used to be.
It could be in our businesses, relationships, career choices or even fitness regime.
If you do have an area of your life that feels like this, then maybe it’s time to take a look at it.
Could it be that you need to find a new way to fire up those engines?
Perhaps its time to switch up your daily routine and do something new?
I’ve worked with many people to help them who seem to have lost their ‘mojo’ to get back on track and find clarity, rediscover their passion and reignite the fire in their belly.
