Life is like……

Well according to Forrest Gump – “Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get!”

However, I feel that life is like a giant game of snakes and ladders.  You roll the dice and you don’t know if you are going to be climbing a ladder up or hitting a snake and sliding back down again.

This is like emotions.  Some days you are on a real high – everything is going well.  The sun is shining, you are feeling positive and great and life is easy.  You are climbing high and going up in the world on the ladder with your work, your relationships and your health.

And then without warning, you slide back down.  Something happens and life hits you.  You slide back down and are in a slump and you don’t know why -things were going so great – why me, why now?

By having tools and techniques that are available through Emotional Intelligence training & coaching you can’t avoid these snakes and ladders, they are part of life’s lessons. But you CAN make the ladders taller and the snakes shorter. Now, does that interest you, or are you happy not knowing how far down you can slide?

I like to hedge my bets in my favour – call me risk averse, but I win more and gain bigger prizes!

When you can understand yourself and how you are programmed to react to situations you are able to roll the dice and make your way to the winning post of the game much more faster than leaving it to chance.
