Today I’m reading a coaching book about evoking excellence in others and it’s a little more advanced than what I’ve read so far. I’m learning a lot about language and the impact and importance of language and speaking.
So I spent the day reading in bed and one thing that came to my mind was the immediate concerns that we all have that keep us from being present in our lives. How often are we talking to a friend or in a meeting and we’re thinking about the laundry, or that event happening after work?
I found myself re-reading pages from the book as my mind went on adventures into tomorrow’s client meeting and that practice my coach had assigned me last week.
The importance of clearing your mind and being present really struck me today as I was reading. It was increasing the amount of time it took me to read my book and when I think of it, it prevents us from engaging with life.
I am thankful for my clearing exercise and am looking forward to sharing this insight with my clients!
