The illusion of control

I used the word ‘agency’ the other day with a client. I NEVER use that word.

I used it in the context of explaining that what we seek is not so much ‘control’, but the ability to shape our own experiences and make choices that are right for us.

There’s a difference.

I know about wanting to control. I was a master at it for a very long time (or so I thought!).

Control is an illusion.

In trying to control, we can only ever operate from our current level of understanding. We’ll usually continue to create what we’ve always created in the past. The irony is it can often be what we’re most desperate to escape.

You’re in control until you’re not.

It’s only been in the letting go have I come to realise how rich life can be.

Equipping yourself with the internal resources to remain upright and steady in times of uncertainty allows you to create an unshakeable certainty within that’s not dependent on anyone or anything else.

It’s a far more powerful place to be.

If control’s your thing and you feel it’s not working for you, send me a message and let’s uncover what’s at the heart of it.

I can pretty much guarantee that on the other side of that control is everything you’ve always wanted.
