The Sad Truth About Autopilot.
Within the life coaching sphere, a word you hear thrown around a lot is "fulfillment".
It sounds a bit more relatable than "abundance" or "mindset" or "flow".
But what does it really mean?
And more importantly, why does it matter?
Fulfillment is defined as:
1. the achievement of something desired, promised, or predicted.
2. the meeting of a requirement or condition.
Most people, when they think of fulfillment tend to understand it as the first part of the first definition: getting something they desire.
But it is more than that.
While it is nice to have what we desire in life, it is also important to note that the second part of the definition also applies.
Requirement or conditions met.
It is one thing to say that I desire a retreat spa-style life, but what steps am I taking to achieve that?
What are the requirements to having that life and that calm that are necessary for fulfillment of that reality?
Many of us operate from an auto-pilot space.
That's okay, if we have designed our autopilot to navigate the mountainous terrain that is our life.
But how often do we ask ourselves, is our autopilot creating fulfillment or sabotaging our success?
What does it feel like when we step out of our comfort zone and seek out the requirements and conditions?
How do we harness that energy and celebrate the present moment rather than worrying about how the future pieces come into play.
Take a moment to check in with yourself.
Set a timer for 5 minutes.
Listening to how your gut feels. Try not to decipher what it means, just notice.
Give yourself permission to adjust autopilot if necessary - you'll know how!
Trust your gut!
Onward to a fulfilled week!
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
