Quick motivational mixdown that I wanted to talk to you today about.
I had a great conversation in a class a few weeks ago. We were talking about this idea of being responsible and how that word can have so much weight, right?
And what I like to look at is what that word is. I like to break it down into how am I able to respond.
Responsibility, how am I able to respond?
We have these moments in our lives. We have these conversations that happened, we have work responsibilities, all of these things that are requesting our attention and a lot of times what can happen is we choose to react rather than to respond.
Over the next couple of weeks, I want you to pay attention to when somebody comes to you with something that might need feedback. Maybe something at work, a lover or relationship with your parents. Notice. Check in with yourself before you respond. I have a moment now to check, “Do I want to react to what they are saying or do I want to respond?”
Responsible, being able to respond without judgment, aggression, anger, defensiveness. That’s what I want you to practice.
Just try it on everything that I bring to you. They’re just merely clothes in the closet. Go to the closet and try this one on notice, are you normally in a place of reactivity or do you allow the space in between to really center yourself and then respond from a conscious space?
This is your motivation mixdown and homework. Let me know what you think.
