Do you have a future?

COACHING and training people to live better lives and create better futures basically comes down to one thing, potential.

Potential is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as ‘capable of being but not yet in existence; latent or undeveloped.  Or ‘the inherent ability or capacity for growth, development, or coming into being’.

So let’s quantify and relate that to living life by borrowing something from computer memory language.

As you know, the capacity of a computer’s data storage space or memory is measured in bits or binary digits, and 1 bit = binary digit, 8 bits = 1 byte, 1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte and so on up to yottabytes and beyond.

And so for our example and to keep it simple, imagine, If you were totally you, you would have 1,000,000 bits available, or let’s call them, attention bits, and this would be your full capacity, you.  This gives us a quantitative whole figure for you, or in many cases, a potential whole you.

If you don’t have enough power to create your life the way you want it, we need to focus on what happened to those attention bits.  This has a lot to do with feeling full of life or lifeless, young or old, happy or sad, or powerful or weak.

You see, what happened to those attention bits is you lived life, probably unknowingly and unawarely, and they got tied up.

For example, you may have had a difficult birth, which tied up 15,000 bits; a difficult childhood where you had to change schools and you lost your friends, 125,000 bits; you got held back at school because you didn’t understand, 225,000 more bits; you got caught cheating on a high school exam which tied up 75,000 more bits; you weren’t accepted in the subject you really wanted to study at college and failed some of the other ones that didn’t really interest you, 105,000 bits; you experienced a big love affair and a broken heart and 340,000 more bits disappeared.  And then you had to look for a job and meet people and problems like that, and in those experiences 95,000 more bits disappeared or got tied up.

Then one day, you were all grown up, but unfortunately, you were left with only about 2% of your personal power, your attention bits, or 20,000 bits.

Now it doesn’t take too much living to absorb those 20,000 bits in present time.  They would be used in living your daily life; things like using your computer, driving your car, talking to other people, making decisions, getting things done and actions like that, providing it was all going well.

But if something went wrong, it would probably remind you of a time from the past when your attention bits got tied up and bang would go your present time attention bits, and thus your personal power and ability to create life, here and now.

And so this helped us was narrow down a very specific product.  When we coach or train people, what would be good coaching or training?

You guessed it, releasing attention bits!

And then helping them reinvest them in better futures, their futures!

We specialize in helping people get better and better and live in the Green and Gold Zone.
