“What are you tolerating,” I recently asked a client. He hesitated and got really quiet and still.
I knew from my experience in coaching that something amazing was going to happen. That there was going to be a breakthrough which I knew hadn’t been there in months.
He then started to share with me all the things in his personal and business life that he had been tolerating. These were things that he had never stopped to think about before. And then he asked himself — why am I tolerating this? Why am I allowing this in my life? Why have I allowed this in my life the last 10 years? Then he said, when am I going to stop tolerating it and get rid of it?
We talked about the commitment it would take to do this. The courage it would take. The confidence to get rid of these things.
We also talked about the accountability that I was going to help him with to get these things that are intolerable out of his life.
I dare ask you the same question: What are you tolerating in your life? What do you need to eliminate?
This is a great time of year to ask yourself the same question. What are you tolerating that you need to get rid of in order to make 2021 the best year ever?
