In my work with clients, I often introduce the concept of an inner guidepost…or, as I like to call it, a bumper sticker.
The bumper sticker is a one sentence motto that we can live by. It’s what makes us get out of bed in the morning. It’s something we can measure every decision by. If an action fits with the bumper sticker, then it’s thumbs up; if it doesn’t align with the bumper sticker, then it’s thumbs down.
In this interview with Julia Greef on Paint Yourself Into the Picture, we devise a bumper sticker to help her through the complex process of writing a book.
This inner guidepost is fundamental enough to carry her from that first brilliant moment of inspiration, through all the complex twists, turns, highways, detours and dead ends that a large project often entails. She is on track to successfully fulfill her vision.
Like Marie Kondo’s “Does it spark joy?” I use this the one sentence bumper sticker to give clients a fail-proof inner guidepost that can be used in any situation. It becomes an invaluable litmus test which enables the client to know whether she is on track or not.
In addition, this session offers a lesson in knowing our worth and value. From a coaching standpoint, it also offers insight into a subtle approach to the issue.
In coaching, at times it is best for the client to go indirectly at an issue, rather than confront an insecurity or habit of speech and mind head-on. Click here to watch the episode to see how Julia and I come up with strategies for promoting greater self-worth in a way that is positive and aligned with Julia’s true purpose.
A whole lot of inner shifting happened in this quiet conversation. Can you see it, too?
I am grateful to Julia for her integrity, for her beautiful spirit, and for allowing our viewers to travel the healing journey along with her.
What was your takeaway from this coaching session? Did you find something you could apply to your own life?
My personal bumper sticker is: “Every obstacle is a doorway.”
