I have done enough – follow-up


My thought last Saturday was “I have done enough,” and then the answer to your insightful question, “Done enough of what?”, is effort. I had done enough effort and I was done (or so my brain said).
I’m realising how childish my thoughts are right now. I’m completely resisting growing up into an adult. I’ve just been certified as a Life Coach and it’s as if a part of me wanted to stay small, in the cave.
You said: “To find your intentional model, then ask yourself, “What if I believed the opposite of this is true?””
So, what if I believed I was only starting to make effort? But the thing is I’m very reluctant to making efforts. I want everything to be fun and effortless. And I’ve come up with the thought that, indeed, I can figure out how to make anything effortless. It’s a game for me. Like talking to shop assistants about my programme – now I’ve done it and I know how to do it better and better, and it really feels as much fun as coaching but in a different setting, I don’t want to go through that anymore. I’m bored already and want other stimuli.
You also said: “For example, if you believed you were just getting started on figuring this out, what would that look like?” If I was just starting on figuring it out, I would need to accept that I’m blooming into a grown-up person and I would stop behaving like a child (guess what I ate tonight? Candies!). But I don’t want to. I know I’m having a temper tantrum, I can see it but I don’t seem to be able to get out of it because I don’t want to more than I want to. I also know that relying on Ask Brooke to find a solution is leaning onto an authority figure instead of figuring it out on my own.
Anyway, what do you recommend? Thank you!
