A BIG THANK YOU to those of you who showed up today for the December TSS class! For those of you who were unable to make it – below is a brief summary of what went down after we wrapped up our usual group self-reflection ritual of rating our ability to avoid and untangle the 6 Root Causes of Self-Sabotage:
Hot Seat #1 (starting at roughly 60 min. into the call): De Dee Gilman-Johnson filled out a HSPF (Hot Seat Prep Form) asking for help with overcoming procrastination and getting a fire under her ass once again so she can stay motivated to take positive and important actions (including continuing in her AY course studies). She shared in her HSPF that she hasn’t felt like herself since 2013 and is really struggling with this recurring pattern.
While I don’t usually do hot seat coaching on the TSS calls if the person who submitted the HSPF isn’t there LIVE to interact and receive the coaching, in this case I made an exception because I knew it would benefit EVERYONE on the call to hear the feedback I had for De Dee.
So… if YOU haven’t felt yourself for a period of time; if you’ve procrastinated and felt unmotivated; if you’ve had a lot of good intentions but haven’t been following through in the action department and it’s got you down, you need to hear my rant for De Dee.
It includes immediately applicable steps you can take that really will help, the majority of which are delivered through my own personal shares (because Kraig and I have been dealing with some pretty challenging shit ourselves lately – and we’ve learned A LOT so we had A LOT to say on the subject).
Hot Seats #2 and 3 (starting at roughly 80 min. into the call): Zoe Dizzle and Steph Jacobs both had not filled out HSPFs but luckily we had spaciousness on the call to allow for some off-the-cuff questions, so we gave them the floor; first Zoe, then Steph.
Zoe had some painful stories spinning that were keeping her stuck in her family’s business, neglecting self-care and the steps she needed to take to get to her Point B. We did The Work on the most painful of the stories, and Zoe was my hero in terms of her courage and willingness to be vulnerable and truly in inquiry. She got her Turnarounds and pinpointed a “living amend” to take in order to turn her aha’s into transformational actions. Zoe, we look forward to hearing how that goes. Thank you again for giving us the gift of your transparency and out loud learning.
Steph was struggling with getting herself to take the baby steps she’d pinpointed as most important and necessary (having to do with getting her Portfolio live on her website). There was just a lot of fear and hesitation in general (due to a lot of spinning stories––we can always trace it back to a combination of the 6 Root Causes of Self-Sabotage). So we worked with her using our basic “Overwhelm Eliminator” formula to simplify the Point B and action step even further and make it a little less scary. She committed to taking the action and reporting back to all of us on the Facebook Group once it’s done. Bravo, Steph! I can’t wait to hear how it goes. I’ll be looking forward to your post. 🙂
Well done everyone!
Between now and the next time you join us on the live classes, please use the Facebook group to post your questions, comments and feedback –– make use of the Bhakti Buddy System –– and keep plugging away with your coursework (and THE WORK) at a pace that works for you!
Thanks to each of you reading this… you make life for me and all of us here at AY so much more magical. We appreciate you so much. Here’s to an amazing December and finishing out 2015 strong. XOXO
