Remorse or regrets? What about neither…

October 21, 2019

 

Name one thing you are committing to do for yourself this week

 

Something that will be helpful to you.  

Some suggestions:

  • Changing a habit
  • Installing a new habit
  • Doing something you have been stalling to do
  • Learning something new

 

How many times do you say “later” when you know deep down you mean “now”? 

 

And the “I should really do it” becomes “I should have done it” – delays, regrets and guilt (and missed opportunities).

 

Renew your commitments to yourself and to your career.  

 

And if you see yourself slipping behind, coaching and hypnosis are powerful tools to get you reacquainted with what you deeply desire.

Remorse or regrets? What about neither…

 

There is that saying that when given a choice, action will always be better than stagnation and procrastination.  

That’s true .. to a certain extent…

 

Stagnation can be the result of unexpected, out of your control delays.

 

Procrastination can mean unpreparedness.

 

And action needs to be a conscious choice and not an impulse.

 

This is how you avoid remorse and regrets at the same time.

 

Client Case study: I am stuck

 

Male Banker in his late 30s

  • Senior VP in a prestigious Private Equity firm
  • On track for promotion
  • Has a “once in a lifetime” job offer elsewhere

The result: 

  • Should I stay or should I go?
  • Conflicted between his loyalty to his current firm and the prospect of a big leap

My coaching solutions: 

  • Did a SWOT on his current career
  • Did a SWOT on his current company and job and the prospective ones
  • Used hypnosis and coaching tools to get clarity on his current goals and roadblocks

The result: 

  • Did not pass that “opportunity of a lifetime”

Today’s tip: People! stop apologizing!

 

Do you tend to replay ‘sorry’ for anything and everything? If yes, today’s tip is for you:  be more conscious about what you say, and in particular when your apologizing becomes a reflex. 

 

Today’s tip is about getting more conscious about what you say, and in particular, apologizing becoming a reflex.

 

Is that bad? Yes, it can be!

 

They say it’s better having remorse than regrets and as a consequence, we became a culture that likes apologizing for e.vry.thing.

The weather is bad? We apologize

The delivery is late, we apologize

A person doesn’t agree with us… you guessed it!

 

Do you see how this became a reflex? 

 

But the consequence is that not only you are taking responsibility for things that are not within your control, adding more stress and angst when it’s not needed.

But also that a real apology doesn’t mean anything.  

 

So when is it appropriate to apologize? Well, when we messed up.  Period

 

Today I invite you to observe when you distribute your “sorry” s when it’s not needed.

 

And explore when and how to give a genuine heartfelt apology.
