Growth and Change
In order to grow, we must be willing to accept change in every area of life. And given that our brains are designed to resist and protect us from change, these choices must be conscious! Pay attention to the reasons “why not” your brain likes to trick you with and make those conscious decisions to accept change and do things differently.
Where are you on a scale of 1-10 in your willingness to accept change?
To determine where you are on the scales, you can consider:
– What are you willing to give up to get what you want?
– What are you willing to spend to get to where you want to be?
– Are you willing to let go of truths you might hold and see things from a different perspective?
The above combined with our willingness to accept change and our willingness to learn make up the Teach-ability Index.
Here’s the thing…
It’s OK if you’re not 10/10 on both scales! We aren’t going to be there 100% of the time. It’s a place to strive to be because that’s where new levels of success are reached. Bringing consciousness to where you are will allow you to determine the actions you need to take and the ways in which you need to adjust your thoughts to move higher on the teach-ability index, the place that we have tremendous growth.
I’d love to know if you have questions about this or how it resonates.
Wishing you well,
