Open Minds and Language

I thought this was interesting because I was looking up an educational video to express the concept of being open minded to a coaching client. I wanted to show the use of critical thinking…with animation. I needed a how-to from someone that wasn’t me, so that this person will accept the possibility that they are NOT Always right. I found this, I thought it was well put together, explains critical thinking and the true definition of being “Open Minded”. Then I thought better of it, because like me, the film is a little too on point, and I don’t think it has the right tone for what I need. I am looking for something that gives me authority on my evidence, but is soft and nice. Sometimes  I just get exasperated with  clients  but, I am always  compelled to work through blocks and not give up till we can come to solution. Because my Job as a good coachis not to spend lots of time focused on the problems in life, but the teaching of the life skill of being pro-active in life, not passive and well… trapped inside a world of perceptions that really don’t work and leave people feeling alone and bitter, or self inflicted walking wounded (the perennial victim syndrome) or even worse, numb.  In other words if I encounter a wall (resistance) then I find a way over, under, around, or through the wall…just because it’s hard doesn’t mean you stop. So…I found a kinder more gentle version for my client, but this is the one I present to the rest of the world, because life is sometimes all about how you understand and use language…and your happiness is dependent upon your definition of words and their meanings, every single day. So give it a twirl, and see what you think. Let us know too…ahhhh, isn’t sharing nice? Don’t you feel better now? Me too. OK, back to work for me. Happy Monday all. Go People Go!
