Sally has privately coached key influencers internationally: CEO’s/executive teams/C-Suite forums/entrepreneurs/celebrities/politicians/millionaires/billionaires over 20 years. This week Sally is sharing an amazing formula for achieving leadership results-
I was in dialogue yesterday with a thought leader I hugely respect and admire and I asked her what she would value insight into right now knowing I was writing an article today and she said ‘How do I sustain ‘unprecedented confidence’, as I forge ahead?
I loved the term ‘unprecedented confidence’. My reframe for this would be ‘tapping into your KNOWING’ so let me explain what I mean by this:-
I love using analogies to provide context and with today’s topic I will be leveraging off years of research into finding the ‘formula for results’ by way of using a planting analogy. Why do some people produce results and some not and to what degree? – here is the formula:-
Those who produce NOTHING fundamentally have no integrity with their word thereby no results are produced due to not BELIEVING it is possible
Next Layer of Soil
Those who produce SOMETHING fundamentally have some integrity with their word thereby some results are produced for they are willing to CONFRONT these beliefs
Those who produce EVERYTHING fundamentally have a HIGH degree of integrity with their word, ongoingly confront their beliefs, stay consistent with their activity thereby producing a HIGH degree of results for they are COMMITTED. They know that results starts and ends with belief and integrity with one’s word
That being said even when you are committed there are many times when the harvest is not visible. Just because it is not visible does not mean it is not coming. It is in these times one needs to move away from evidence-based belief to tapping into ones ‘innate knowing’.
This is why I love the planting analogy. You cannot plant a seed and stand over this seed and say… ‘Grow you bastard’, there is a gestation period where you water, manure, cultivate and during this time you are assured of the harvest, you just know you will reap return if you remain patient.
Too many times I see confidence waiver due to not respecting the gestation period.
The Chinese bamboo story applies hugely here. The story speaks of bamboo that has a long gestation period of sometimes up to 5-7 years with no visible results. Chinese bamboo farmers are experts is ‘knowing’ that the harvest will come if they sustain unprecedented confidence.
Knowing is not evidence based. Knowing is sourced through one’s intuition. Intuition is not a linear construct. As an evolved leader championing one’s vision, one needs to place more impetus into the non-linear aspect to stay the distance.
Top 5 recommendations:-
- TRUST that if you have stayed consistent with your activity (the watering, cultivating, manuring) piece then KNOW that you will indeed reap the harvest, you can’t but not!
- Miracles do not occur in the linear realm…they occur in the unknown non-linear realm, do not deny the magic by being hell bent on linear evidence
- RESPECT the gestation period and learn ‘patience’, you cannot force the outcome, JUST like you cannot force a plant to grow
- DO THE WORK…unearth the beliefs that you have that are usurping, sabotaging your results. Get the coaching, get the mentoring, get the healing, do the work!
- Tapping into your KNOWING allows you to ‘relax’, alleviates any form of monkey mind questioning or frustration
So in answer to my highly respected thought leader colleague, ‘How do you maintain unprecedented confidence as you forge ahead’, you trust the process that nature provides so eloquently.
If you are interested in building your intuitive muscle in the area of ‘ones knowing’, hook in for a 1-hour free coach consultation, it is a game-changer!
