Yesterday, I planned to discuss Level 5 Energy in life transitions. However, if you are a part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge this month, like me, you received an email this morning with the suggestion of including a video in today’s blog. I had already drafted the content for today, however my intuition told me to wait. Hours later in the day, I remembered the video attached.
Here is what I came up with for today. The video is Bruce Feiler’s TED Talk, “The Secret to Mastering Life’s Biggest Transitions. Remember Feiler’s work is a huge part of the model I developed for coaching women through life transitions.
In 18 minutes Feiler shares the core of his work he refers to as, “The Life Story Project.”
He shares three lessons he learned from his research:
The linear life is dead.
The non-linear life involves many more transitions.
Life transition is a skill we can and must learn.
Plus, five tips to master transition:
Begin with your super power transition.
Accept your emotions.
Try something new
Seek wisdom from others.
Rewrite your life story.
Feiler also reminds us, “Life is the story you tell yourself.” He reminds us we can control the story we tell about ourselves and shares the WHY we all need to be the hero of our story.
Questions to ponder (or share your thoughts in the comments sections):
What would need to exist for you to be the hero in your story?
What one new thing would you like to create in your life?
Tomorrow, Level 5 Energy will be the topic.
