5 years ago I read a paragraph in a book that had a profound impact on my life. It changed the way that I thought about my happiness, my goals and my purpose.
Yep…one paragraph…one moment and things haven’t been the same for me since.
The book was called Clarity and here is that paragraph…”the hidden hamster wheel is the mistaken idea that our “core states” such as security, confidence, peace, love, happiness and success can be provided or threatened by our circumstances;”
The “hidden hamster” wheel as it’s referred to in this book is often described as the “I’ll be happy when trap”.
Think about for a moment…how much of your life is focused on trying to get or achieve certain goals so you can allow yourself to feel things:
…I’ll finally feel worthy when I see 100 pt visits a week
…Everything would be way less stressful in my practice if I just had more new patients.
…I’ll be happy when I meet the person of my dreams
…My life will be fulfilled when I finally have children
The truth is you could feel worthy, less stressed, happy and fulfilled right now if you just knew how!
This week on the podcast I talk with the author of Clarity Jamie Smart.
Jamie is a Sunday Times bestselling author, speaker and coach. Jamie presents regularly at major conferences worldwide, he’s passionate about working with coaches, consultants and other transformation professionals (just like you!)…and he loves to help them have a bigger impact with their clients and grow thriving practices.
Jamie and I talk about the “hidden hamster wheel” and what it takes to get off it.
You’ll learn where inner peace comes from, the importance of clarity and how to create a level of magnetism that will draw people to you (it’s like a mystical Facebook ad).
I loved this chat and I hope you will too.
Thanks for all you do.
Keep saving lives
