Do you remember the last time that you met a person for the first time and upon that encounter you immediately connected, I mean deeply connected as in you felt like, wow, this person really gets me, or maybe you thought, wow, this conversation really helps to bring value and confirms my thoughts on this subject? Now this encounter could have been at a social event, a work retreat, your kids field trip or a family vacation and when you had this initial conversation, you felt as though you had known this person all your life.
Many times in our daily live we are in environments that cause us to live by our schedule and accepts our routines. We get up, we start our normal routines and we live a life that just happens. It’s when we are in a change of pace and out of our routine that we can truly relax and let our normal guards down on how we may typically engage with others.
You see your environment has everything to do with creating the right mindset about your surroundings and it also allows you to be open to the kinds of opportunities that may be exposed to you. By joining a class, watching a video or even reading a great book you can take the first step towards influencing your mindset.
Often times all we need is a walk in the park, a night out with friends or spontaneous overnight getaway that can help us regroup and connect to others in a different way.
I challenge you this week. Take 1 hour to do something different, put yourself in a unique environment than you’ve ever experienced and be curious. Go out an connect to someone or something that makes you come alive inside! Take a chance that you can connect to others in a different way. Through this experience, these people that you meet or these activities that you do may give you the permission (that you’ve been waiting for) to help you realize the natural gifts that you had forgotten you already have Inside you.
All of us have this desire to feel a purpose in our life and I believe the power of deeply connecting with others in a relaxed, non scheduled environment can lead us to that ah ha moment of believing we can change the world!
This is where I am today, I’m connecting to others in environments that are inspiring me to think differently, to meet and connect to people that can positively influence my outcomes and let me tell you, this is an amazing growth journey!
