Hi Christelle,

Let’s start with what’s new at Pistachio-Cassis Coaching…

I’m still writing about “leading a more intentional life and career”… but I’m changing the format of my writing to explore how we could “rewrite the stories we tell ourselves”…

>>> You can read the whole article here: “Rewrite the stories you tell yourself… and lead a more intentional life and career!

No access to LinkedIn? No problem – you can also read the article on Medium!

And now let’s get a little more personal…

When I was writing that article, I was also thinking about the stories I told myself, and how they impacted my perception of Life…

Starting with seeing Life as being at the top of a cliff crumbling more or less slowly (depending on the day), with the crumbling representing Life moving forward… and leaving me with 2 choices: “falling” with the crumbling cliff (letting life happen to me), or “jumping” ahead of time and doing my best to reach a specific “landing” point (doing what I could to “control” where my life was heading to)… And no, there wasn’t the option to walk back to more stable grounds, because Life only moves forward…

To now considering that I’m the Captain of my own Vessel, a Vessel that I’m designing and building (and yes, it doesn’t always work out as I would like!) with a broad destination (of the person I want to be) in mind, a Vessel that I’m learning to navigate through the ups and downs of Life…

So, how could you rewrite your stories, using different pictures to the ones you’re using right now? 

  • To empower yourself to take one small step toward (more) control over how you view your life (past and future)?
  • To start designing, building, and then leading your life and career more intentionally?
  • To develop the “Vessel” you need to make this metaphor a reality (based on your circumstances at that time)?

Empower yourself - starting with holding yourself accountable…

About last week: 

  • Did you take the step you had decided to take last week?
  • Did you celebrate after taking that step… or did you wait to see the result?

About this week:

  • What’s one other step you can take this week?
  • What challenges / obstacles could you face?
