Setting Intentions then Stepping Back

I’ve been a coach for several years now, working with clients who want to focus on either professional or personal goals. One approach to coaching is to help people see the gap of where they are vs. where they want to be.  The role of the coach is to help people take steps to close the gap and achieve their goals.  I’ve been a bit uneasy lately about having people focus on the gaps in their life.   I’ve also felt that in our ‘achivement driven, strive for success’ world, we don’t allow for the unfolding to happen as it needs to,  perhaps along a different rhythm than we are used to following or in a different way than we expect.

So here are a few tips to get you started with creating and allowing – Set your Intentions then Step Back.  Set your intentions on what you desire, be very clear on what you wish to bring into your life.  Then ask that the Right Highest Good be done for everyone.  Surrender and humility are needed here. It takes a fair bit of humility to recognize that we don’t always know what’s in the Right Highest Good for all parties involved.

Do you find either of these challenging- Setting a clear intention of what you want to create? Stepping back and seeing what unfolds next?
