Dandelion: Perception is Everything

You spot it in your yard. A yellow flower has sprouted from the earth.

You could have two reactions:

:Hey, look at that pretty, little dandelion--so persistent that it grows where many plants can't. Its leaves are edible. The bees enjoy its nectar."


"OMG! Another hideous weed has emerged. Grab the poison! It needs to GO!"

Fascinating, right? There was only one fact. A flower emerged. What happened next were two stories about the fact. Two different ways to interpret the fact and give it meaning. Which way feels expansive and light? Choose that! Which way feels painful and annoying? Stay away from that!

That's what a life coach can help with:

  • finding beliefs about the facts that are causing pain, annoyance, anger and digging a little bit deeper to see how else the facts can be interpreted. Always choose the light!
