Dogs Get Fixed. People Don't Get Fixed.
The cornerstone of our work with the Abundance Intelligence® System is the belief that each of us is born great—born with everything we need, want, and choose to be who we are.
Yet our society is constantly bombarding us with message after message about improving ourselves, fixing our flaws, changing our lives and re-inventing who we are.
As if who we are isn’t good enough.
I think this is a load of crap. This kind of belief – focusing on what is “wrong” and what isn’t working, instead of focusing on what’s naturally great and already working--perpetuates and fuels the billion dollar self-improvement industry.
One of my favorite lines from Coaching Into Greatness is “Dogs get fixed, People don’t get fixed.” Is there something about yourself that you see as flawed? A weakness? Something you’ve been struggling to improve for years? Usually, when we negate a part of who we are, we’re also resisting the truth of who we are.
As a society, we’ve got to let go of our fixation with fixing ourselves. Let’s learn to be the Observer. Instead of making things wrong, we learn how to observe what we don’t want and choose what we do. This is engagement. After all, this is doing what we can do.
