Last week I finished my book.
I had planned to finish it in the fall, but then I extended my deadline to the end of the year. At the end of the year, I told my publisher I needed one more month. At the end of the month I asked for two more weeks. It was due by 5 p.m. last Monday and I sent it to my editor at 4:59.
The moment I hit send, I started to cough. The next morning, I woke up with a nasty case of the flu.
Yes, it is a bummer, but it’s also my pattern.
Every.Single.Time I push to finish a project, perform a big seminar or just get through a particularly stressful period of my life…BAM my body takes me out.
It would be easy to think that this is “just the way it is” but something is going on. Something I need to figure out.
What’s your pattern?
Maybe you always date men that are mean to you.
Perhaps you quit every job you take after being there a year.
Maybe you start taking care of yourself and then quit a few months in.
My pattern is so ingrained I could set my watch to it. I push push push, and then get sick. Rinse and repeat.
Patterns are dangerous because they’re like computer programming going on under the surface. They run our lives without our input or understanding.
The Amplify Project was born from the idea that we communicate who we are. After years of working with people to help them change their communication I realized that skills were not enough. It was going to take going deeper to really figure out why people were communicating the way they were in the first place.
If you really want to live into your power you’ve got to unearth your patterns. What keeps happening in your life over and over again like clockwork? Instead of letting it run its course uninterrupted, get curious. Knowing your patterns is the first step.
For me, I’m taking my pattern to my coach immediately. I want to untangle this and STOP GETTING SICK. (Ugh. Flu. It’s the worst.)
