What’s stopping you?

When I work with clients to get clarity and make a plan to achieve new things we always go through the well tried and tested SWOT test. It may be old fashioned but it works and I use it all the time. We look at our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities for change and threats and while we are always pretty good at looking at our weaknesses and can usually spot an opportunity that will help us, the strengths and threats bit of the formula often causes us problems and keeps us stuck.

Seven Day Writing Challenge-Day 2

Capturing an emotion in words makes it feel more real. We can’t change things if we don’t acknowledge them. It’s easy to acknowledge what we are thinking but it’s not always easy to accept how we FEEL.

This is very important as we start to set goals.
