Boyatzis’ Model of Intentional Change can be seen at page 8 of this PDF. This model backs the intuitive leaning of many natural coaching approaches and, I believe, provides a theoretical structure that can be adapted for effective coaching models. One of the key contributions of this model is to recognize that by having a client focus and connect to the ideal, hoped for, future state, actually moves them out of the realm of the sympathetic nerve system (the place of reaction and stress where growth is not possible) and stimulates the parasympathetic nerve system (the relaxed normal state where change and growth are possible).
Keep in mind that you are always saying ‘no’ to something. If it isn’t to the apparent, urgent things in your life, it is probably to the most fundamental, highly important things. Even when the urgent is good, the good can keep you from your best, keep you from your unique contribution, if you let it…Stephen Covey
What is life asking you to do differently?
A peaceful short movie for your viewing pleasure today.
Do something this week that you have always wanted to do, yet have previously feared or resisted doing.
Reconnect with the fullness and richness of life you deserve. Your energy will be raised and your creative channels will open up when you take yourself away from the usual and ‘ho-hum’ for a little while.
Just say “no” to activities and tasks that no longer inspire you!
Eliminate energy drains from your life so that you can relax and smell the roses. You only have this time, now. Use it to live ‘your’ life.
If we would only give, just once, the same amount of reflection to what we want to get out of life that we give to the question of what to do with a two week’s vacation, we would be startled at our false standards and the aimless procession of our busy days…Dorothy Canfield Fisher
