I’ve explored the difference between “States” and “Stages” in an earlier blog post, but in this video, Jeff and I take the idea a little further. We’re going to talk about what you need to do to manage your state of mind and how to get comfortable and content with your stage of development.
What I’m really talking about when I say “States vs Stages” is the difference between ‘being’ and ‘doing.’ When we master our state of mind (our ‘being’), we move much more easily through our different development stages in life (our ‘doing’).
And what it all really boils down to is that ‘being’ needs ‘doing’ to become meaningful and powerful (and vice verse).
Think about the last time you started something new (piano lessons, tennis, a business) and remember how heavily your state of mind related to your stage of development.
Did you feel frustrated and upset by being in the beginner stage? Did this negative state of mind prevent you from moving further through the stages?
Keeping that in your head, take a look at this video to learn more about marrying your states with your stages to get closer to fulfillment and success.
P.S. I talk about this stuff on an even deeper level in the Identity Shifting MasterClass. Check it out.
