Invitation to lead a powerful life…for an executive’s unfulfilled dream

One young executive did his schooling in a small town, and then moved to do his engineering to a city…with lot of dreams.. When he came out of the college, He wanted to start his own manufacturing plant , a big manufacturing plant..then someone said you need to gain some experience, after lot of struggle he got a job with a minimum salary, then an year went by, by that time he  learnt to survive in the job, he postponed his ambition of setting up a big manufacturing plant for some more years, after 5 years he got another job with decent salary, and he got into the job he survived, and changed jobs, postponed his dream,  changed jobs, survived, changed jobs survived… now he is 50 years old….

the story may sound very familiar, the key point is he never got to know what made him to postpone his dream in spite of gaining whatever he required to  setup his manufacturing plant…

Immediately many may tend to give solutions to that person….and fail to look at ourselves, the sad part is we never discover our blind spots… and never give opportunity for our dreams to get fulfilled…

Here is an opportunity to live your life powerfully…and the life what you want…

Wanted to create a new future..but created past !!

I just wanted a new future for myself and for the people around me…

I was thinking… I am creating a new future…atleast in my heads.!!

But…

every aspect of my new future … I want to become like this, like that, like someone….like this big, like that small……everything I created…is based on my (past) experience, people with whom I am associated (past), a role model (past learning)… ..just listed down…everything I created is based on my past….

So…

My future is only a copy of my past !!…

the sad part is … I was not realizing how much the past is constraining my future moment by moment…

Consider…if I and you can delink the past and the future…and what will be left in future..?!!!

One thing I am clear, the past will not put constraints… that is leading new level of performance…

If  you would like to know more… here is an opportunity…

Transformative learning ….Its impact on personal and professional life …

What is Transformative Learning ?

“. . . an individual becomes aware of holding a limiting or distorted view. If the individual critically examines this view, opens herself to alternatives, and consequently changes the way she sees things, she has transformed some part of how she makes meaning out of the world. ”  (Reference: http://www.uco.edu/academic-affairs/cettl/tlguidefiles/2012-03-tl.pdf )

This idea of a fundamental change in perspective or frame of reference  is at the heart of transformative learning. When someone undergoes such a change,  the way a person deals a certain aspect of life such as in relationship, money, leading a team, managing, etc., undergoes a drastic change…which allows the person to produce different kinds of results…

For example, I was having a view about myself as “I am not smart in solving complex problems” , as long as I was having this view, I always tend to work very hard, which had a huge impact on my performance of solving the problems…..when I discovered that it is only a limiting view I am holding about myself …and dropped the limiting view of I am not smart…. new possibilities emerged….

the challenges is in discovery of the limiting view that we are holding and dropping the limiting view…!

 

 

 

Just being there….! a source of performance

Just being there, when the problem happens, grounded in that situation…as normal as I was…I was just being there…things which were not moving for more than a year…just started moving…because I am there…I don’t know what difference I made… but I realized…my presence…being there…being in my own nature…when things are not good… made all the difference. I am present to my own mysterious life…I don’t know why certain things happened so easily…just being there…I realized…is a source of performance…
