Allow Things To Work Out

Allow Things To Work Out

By Simon Tyler

They do. When it appears they don’t or haven’t yet, it’s simply that we haven’t given them enough time.

I have been caught in the middle of ‘arrgghh’ moments when situations are irritatingly not sorted, giving rise to all types of unhelpful emotions and responses. Often in client coaching dialogues this is the focus of our conversation, to move to the positive, focused, and powerful state of allowing rather than effort laden, having to make things happen.

For a number of my clients at the moment their world seems to be serving up many examples of this, and as the volume increases, often without realizing it, the emotional response and general state of mind slips down and into a fog.

Hold on to the truth that these situations ARE working out, and, crucially, without you needing to get in the middle and do the sorting.

Allow things to be, well… simple.

Coaching Call To Action

This week I invite you to shift what may have become an ingrained attitude. Dedicate this week to charting incidents, simply allowing them to be what and wherever they are at that moment, and discover evidence of ‘things working out’ (particularly without your control or active input). Curb your impulse to wade in, relax and let it be.
