What do you think would happen if you invited a six-year-old to come into your kitchen and cook for you every day?
Would you rather listen to what this six-year old would do? Click here (Episode 43).
Would you get delicious gourmet, healthy nutritional meals that are satisfying to eat? Perhaps, something that looks like it was prepared on the Food Channel or out of Gourmet Magazine?
Probably not! Most likely, your kitchen would be destroyed – or at the very least, a colossal mess. There would be dirty dishes all over the counter and kitchen sink, cabinets ajar, a mess on the floor and probably the smell of something burning.
That is, if the young child even showed up to cook!
The reason is that a six-year-old child doesn’t know how to cook and clean a kitchen. You would never expect that of them. Nor should you.
Why, oh why, do you let your inner child run your life and career?
On a weekly basis during my seven plus years of business, I have worked with hundreds of clients who are letting their younger self-be in charge of their business. This can happen to them every day Then, they wonder why they aren’t more successful.
Perhaps, you’ve had these thoughts:
– Logically, I know I’m smart, then why aren’t I more successful.
– There must be something wrong with me that I’m not further along.
– There’s a reason I’m not more successful. It’s because I’m a bad person and being punished.
A question for you:
-Who do you think breaks their diet with a big piece of chocolate cake a la mode?
-Who do you think watches too much tv at night instead of taking on household projects?
-Who do you think spends hours on social media or shopping on the internet instead of working on time-sensitive projects?
The answer is it’s your younger self in search of a reward, treat, fun. Or, sometimes, it’s because your inner child is doing whatever she/he believes won’t get them in trouble or hurt.
One of my mentors, Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., described this as letting a kindergartener (5-year-old) determine which home to buy. You’d never do that. Yet, many of you allow your younger self to be in charge and make important decisions on a regular basis. As a news flash, most of you aren’t even aware when this is happening. Pretty scary, huh?
Until you learn to become a stable parent to your inner child, they will forever be in charge in areas that they really shouldn’t be, such as running your business, self-care, relationships, money management, health, career, household and much more.
This topic isn’t one that I typically write about and I feel that it’s time has come to pull back the curtains on the deep inner work that I facilitate. When I work with my clients in this area, whether in private coaching, retreat or group setting, they immediately notice a significant change in making decisions, taking action and achieving success.
If you want the success in your life you’ve been craving, it’s time for you to be in charge and let your little child go out and play.
