Today’s Coaching Tip: Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

Imagine if you heard on the weather report that there was a 98% chance of snow. Would you resist the snow? – tell the snow it cannot happen? – Would you excessively worry about the certainty of snow? or would you make sure that you had food, shelter, and safe travel arrangements?  You would let it snow… as if there were any other choice. You would accept the snow- you wouldn’t wonder what you had done wrong to make it snow.

In much the same way, we can let go of resistance in our lives. What do I mean by resistance? Have you ever uttered or even yelled the words- “This can’t be happening.”  or maybe you go to work every day in a negative work environment and you rail against it and take every opportunity to complain about it. This is resistance.  When you let go of resistance/push back and accept your current circumstances, you free up energy to actually think clearly and make good decisions to create positive change.

  1. Hi Sheri, I love your analogy of managing resistance to it snowing, and that you tied it into a Christmas song I like. 🙂

    As usual, your advice is right on the money. I’ve often had to remind myself to just accept the inevitable. It forces me to question if I can control the thing I’m resisting. If not, acceptance is the only choice left. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done, depending on what it is. It’s all in one’s perspective.

    Namaste,
    Judy

    I’ve heard it said that what you resist, persists. Why is it that sometimes a situation has no effect on us but other times we feel the resistance? Maybe it’s an opportunity for us to slow and smell the snow, er, roses.

    Thanks so much for the tips, Sheri.

    Oh, this is another area I have struggled with, and I never even noticed until someone close to me pointed out that I always seemed to be arguing with reality. What a memorable example you’ve provided us with though–next time I catch myself in resistance, I’m going to think of this post and start laughing. 🙂

    Let it snow! A few years back I had a revaluation ….. Why resist the seasons??? If I choose to live where I do then I will blossom each season by embracing what it brings. I choose activities that pertain to each season- Oh what fun!!! Since then, every season is a pleasure!
    Let it snow!!!!!! ;0)

    I sometimes have a hard time with this one, if the situation is very personal. letting go & getting out of my own way is another challenge.
