We are leaving in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity) world. This acronym was created by the US Army War College to describe the new challenging reality emerging after the end of the "Cold War". The linear thinking that was so common in a polarised and quite simple environment is not an option any more.
Nowadays so many questions keep challenging us. Should I have a website, a workspace, some visibility on Facebook, Instagram? How to disconnect from work over the holidays, when I still need to check my email…? The complexity of our reality triggers a jungle of solutions, each of which is adding a new layer of complexity. We are surrounded by “the 8 principles of exponential results”, “the 5 steps to happiness”, “the 3 keys to financial security” and unable to think our way through this jungle of "how-tos" and "quick fixes". When we feel stuck, we surrender and ask experts to guide us in this VUCA world. We may be moving forward, but we cannot help wondering whether we are on the right track. These feelings of stuckness and doubt are draining our energy. How can we connect to our source of resourcefulness to be able to navigate in the dark?
What if we could switch on the light?
During our sessions, we learn how to make decisions based on our inner resources: our common sense, intuition and wisdom. Clarity is our natural state of mind. Why do we have our best ideas in the shower? Just because our head is free and fresh ideas can emerge. Indeed when our heads are full of information, we feel like a shaken snow-globe. But when we stop shaking the globe, the snow settles, the liquid clears, revealing the scene. Similarly, when we let go of our swirling practices and doubts, clarity of mind emerges and we can generate helpful, fresh and clear thinking. Having a clear mind allows us to acknowledge the reality of a situation.
