What are You Ready to Complete?

I did a half back flip on a trampoline the day after Christmas. For those of you who are congratulating me, let me be more clear.

My son assured me that he could spot me while I attempted my first ever back flip, and I believed him.

60 pounds lighter than me. 5 inches shorter than me. 40 years younger than me.

OK – so it was a moment where I saw every glass in the world as half-full. Guilty as charged.

Half a back flip meant that I froze in the air and did a pile drive onto my neck. I heard cracks and crunches that convinced me that my life would be radically different from here on out.

I walked into the ER and the nurse told me something I’ll never forget: “You wouldn’t believe how many people walk in here after landing on their neck and are on a helicopter to Sacramento within 30 minutes.”

My story didn’t end that way. The doctor could see that I had milked a lot of use out of my neck, but there was no recent damage. I could have kissed him if my insurance covered such a thing.

It’s now mid-April and I’m still stiff. I’ve done countless hours of physical therapy, been to dozens of chiropractor appointments, and start and end most days by laying on a cold pack.

And sadly, I’ve given up on myself – and I’m ready to turn that around.

Completion Time

An early pioneer in the personal coaching movement named Bill Lamond taught me something that I’ve never forgotten. He talked about his Completion Process and it’s power to package up and delete a belief about, or relationship to, something, and delete it.

This morning I took a walk and did his completion process for you to see. I hope it will serve you in moving past a belief or relationship that has you stuck in a place you’re ready to leave.

The Steps for a Completion

Briefly state a few bullet points for each question.

  1. What’s good about it?
  2. What’s bad about it?
  3. Who do I need to thank?
  4. Who do I need to apologize to?
  5. What else do I need to say to be complete?

After doing this (can be done in less than 2 minutes), proclaim that you are complete.

I hope this helps you.
