Turning obstacles upside down
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I woke up in an unresourceful state which messed up my entire morning ritual.”
“What do you think triggered it?”
“I think it was a combination of factors. I didn’t sleep very well, woke up with an intense lower-back pain, and felt cold. Normally I’m resistant to cold, so when I am feeling cold, it’s a sign that something is wrong.
It made me realize that changing state is the most important thing, because only in the resourceful / beautiful state you are able to effectively / efficiently access your resources and find solutions.”
“But didn’t you already know that?”
“I did, but this time it was different. It made me really engage with the questions:
How can I access the beautiful state under any conditions?
How can I make the beautiful state my center, my baseline?
Changing state became my implementation focus, my ONE Thing for this month, and I mobilized all my resources towards solving this puzzle.”
“Would you have mobilized your resources in this direction had you not encountered this obstacle?”
“No, I wouldn’t have.
I guess I’d started taking the beautiful state for granted. Every morning I’d do my activation ritual, charge up, and get down to work.
Only when my state impaired my capacity to get my soul work done – combined with an implementation mindset – that it finally became my work.”
