[EPISODE] Dropping the Ball
Join me this week when I speak with Jen Slaw, a keynote speaker and a professional juggler as she speaks about Dropping the Ball, What does that mean? How do you drop the ball?
Dropping the ball is a very subtle experience. One day becomes two and three, four, and before you know, you’re out of the game.
As a personal life coach, many clients have completely lost connection with the ball. They say things like I have to get back to exercising or my diet. When asked about the last time they worked out, it sounds like a few weeks.
However, when I coach deeper, they see that it been years, not weeks or a month. However, in their minds, it is weeks or days or months, their brain has erased the last time. my job is to reconnect my clients back to their ball.
