.Cocoon January newsletter: Where is your focus?

startup founders self-development event

I want to share a recent experience. Last week we were playing a game. When stuck, we could ask for hints. To get the hint, we needed to answer the facilitator’s question. Only if the answer was correct, we get the clue. At one moment, we got so fixated on finding the correct answer that the facilitator said, “Remember that you can progress in the game also without the hint”. So I shifted my focus back to the game itself with the mindset and belief “I can” - and soon found the needed solution to get unstuck. Later, I was stuck again with one of the next steps. I asked the facilitator - how hard is it supposed to be, do I need to "turn around every stone"? He answered that just changing the perspective usually is enough. Plus I remembered about the necessity to believe. Soon after, I resolved what I needed to. Takeaway questions:

  1. Where are you trying to turn around every stone while a simple change in perspective would help instead?

  2. Is your energy focused on the goal or one of the many means?

  3. What is your real goal?

  4. Do you believe you can?

  5. Where are you wasting energy concerning your goals?

#6 Cocoon Podcast - Approval Seeking

Approval seeking is a pattern of thoughts where all the decisions start with looking for what others want. The desired outcome is that people will like me. Because when I am liked = I am a good person = I am allowed to feel good about myself also.
