An electrician went to speak to a Confidence Coach.

The coach asked the electrician: What do you think is preventing you from noticing all the opportunities around you?

Electrician: Fear of failure

Coach: What would you like instead?

Electrician: Confidence

Coach: What prevents you from feeling confident?

Electrician: Fear of failure

Coach: What would you like instead?

Electrician: Confidence

Coach: Notice the loop? Now can I ask you – do you really want to change?

Electrician: Yes I want to. I want the confidence to make the changes

Coach: OK. SO imagine 3 light bulbs screwed into a board with a common cable. The first one is a 10 watt, second 100 watt and third 1000 watt bulb. Which glows the brightest?

Electrician: The third one

Coach: If the same cable brings equal power to each socket, what’s the difference?

Electrician: Electrical resistance – ah, I see it is ME that is resisting opportunity.

Coach: Life, like electricity consists of pure energy. It flows through all is us equally. There is no end to this supply – only you can cut it off through resistance. Stop blaming external factors and accept full responsibility for your actions and your in-actions.
