Why should you be like a flamingo?
Flamingos eat with their heads upside down. This gives them a unique perspective when looking for their food. In relationships we all need to look at things from a different perspective. Too often we are so entrenched in our thinking that we cannot see any other point of view.
Yet everyone has their own point of view. And all emotion is valid. So it would really serve us well to try to see things from our partner’s point of view. We create our own perspective from what our parents have taught us and our experiences of the world. These form the basis of our beliefs. Then there are things we have read or heard from others. There is actually very little chance that our opinions are completely objective.
How else should we be like a flamingo?
Flamingos use their bills and tongue to filter their food, so that they only take in what they need to eat. In life there is so much “noise.” We receive subliminal messages from what we watch on TV online. Emails bombard us with other people’s messages and concerns. It is literally time for us to set boundaries and say no to things we do not choose to watch, read or listen to.
Otherwise our whole day and attention is taken up with unsolicited messages. I know in my own life I have had to set strong boundaries when it comes to messages. I have had days when I received 50 messages from Business Strategy Coaches all offering to teach me how to scale my business. My answer was to set boundaries in my Facebook and Instagram profiles.
We should always have a choice. And I want you to have a choice. If you choose to try out my life and relationship coaching, I would love to offer you a powerful coaching call so you can experience it for yourself. It is my gift to you.
