I recently held the smallest retreat I’ve ever facilitated in over ten years. On the one hand, you might think that size shouldn’t matter a whole lot – on the other, it could matter when a participant’s energy isn’t optimal, for any number of reasons.
We are not guaranteed the responses we hope for or expect. We are not guaranteed receptivity or any of those nice, almost perfectly aligned circumstances, that make us comfortable and feeling like we have our act together.
Being the experienced international retreat facilitator that I am, I would have expected to have managed to raise my own energy sooner than I did — I didn’t. Well, not in the beginning. It took me a minute to find my rhythm.
Great lessons are available any time we choose to learn from them.
As a professional, it is up to us to ‘be ready’ to call upon our superpowers and our magic, not to fix other people, but to fix ourselves!
Whether you find yourself in a team meeting with someone you consider obnoxious or whether your boss isn’t head over heels about your new idea, remember, you – have – a – choice. Raising your own vibration is so much more powerful than being less than your best.
Be you, but understand ‘them’ … whether at home, at play or at work, the old adage “If it is to be, it is up to me” is worth remembering …
Let your best self … BE!
