We all know that taking action is essential because without it, we can't expect to see results, right?
However, it's important to reflect on the source of our actions. Have you ever found yourself caught in a cycle of taking action after action, feeling like you're spinning your wheels without making real progress? I can certainly relate, and I'm sure you can too.
I recently had the privilege of working with a coaching client who was suffering from job burnout. He was a representative at a juice company, essentially selling juice. But he had reached a point where he dreaded going to work, started cutting corners, and felt overwhelmed by the whole situation. He was trapped in a world of negativity and wondered why he even chose to be in such an environment.
Together, we embarked on a journey to dismantle the challenges he faced at work. We delved into his true motivations and explored his dreamsource (there is a link to my TED TALK where I distinguish DREAMSOURCE down below)—the deeper reason behind his choices. We discovered that his ultimate commitment was to people's wellbeing. He wanted to leave a positive impact on others and provide them with access to improved health and wellness.
By re-discovering his dreamsource, it completely shifted the context he was functioning in at work.
This shift in context was transformative for him. Instead of viewing his job as a mere paycheck, he began seeing it as an opportunity to contribute to people's wellbeing. The same job, but with a new lens and purpose. This shift in context breathed new life into his work. His entire experience transformed, and he became three times more effective and productive in his sales.
The context is decisive, as the saying goes. By altering the context, we can bring new life and meaning to any situation. A shift in the context changes our perception and experience. Context is a linguistic phenomenon that allows us to shape our reality.
You have the power to alter the context of any situation in your life. By shifting your perspective, you can uncover new possibilities and unlock hidden potential. It's not about changing the external circumstances, but rather transforming the way you perceive and approach them.
As you navigate your own journey to be "unmessablewith", I encourage you to reflect on the context in which you're operating. Are there areas where you feel stuck or drained? Take a moment to connect with your dreamsource—the deeper purpose that fuels your actions. Aligning your actions with your true intentions can bring a profound sense of fulfillment and drive.
Remember, action is crucial, but the source of your action is equally important. When you approach life with a new context, one that aligns with your true desires and aspirations, you'll experience a renewed sense of purpose and joy.
