I went to Morocco in November. It was the best trip I have ever taken in my life. There are many reasons, and I’m going to share a few. In fact, I think I’ll take the whole month of December to share my lessons from Morocco, and a few photos, too, because they are just so beautiful.
This month is all about how I took a different approach and how it played out. If you want to play with that concept for yourself, schedule a mini-session with me, and we’ll talk about it. (It’s free. And fun. And awesome.)
First, why did I have such a great trip? Because I made up my mind that I would. I kept telling myself that this was an amazing experience. You all know the power of making up your mind in advance – and this is just more evidence. Here’s how it played out for me. If some little thing went “wrong” or seemed different than I planned, I just let it be part of the experience. No complaining allowed. Do you have any idea how good it feels to just not allow yourself to complain? I hope you do. I cannot recommend it enough – it is so freeing.
Second, I was surrounded by wonderful people, and I kept reminding myself – and telling them!
Third, the trip itself was amazing. Well planned, highly immersive, jam packed – it was so much more than I expected.
Fourth, I went in with an open mind. Lots more on this later.
Finally (at least for this blog), I was all in. I wasn’t multi-tasking. I didn’t try to fit in work stuff, or coach training stuff, or rehearsing or any of the other things that I normally try to do on vacation. I was fully present. Not only did I get more out of the trip, I also connected more deeply with the people I was with.
With all of that, how could I not have an amazing trip? Hey, here’s a hint…there might be some ideas here that we could repurpose!
And remember: in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light,
If you’re interested in tackling a big goal for yourself, and you want to try a different approach, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or schedule a free mini session with me (here). A mini session is a short coaching session, where we can talk about the noise that’s holding you back and what you can do about it. What do you have to lose? Literally!
