A very good and prosperous Chinese Lunar New Year to everyone celebrating this season! Even if you’re not Chinese or believe in this season, it’s a good time to learn a thing or two. This is the turn of the Snake to rule the new year of 2013. Do you know much about the Snake year?
Year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs– Hanban.com
I’d like to take it from a different approach as a Coach. Snakes may be all these in the Chinese belief and they may be all true. How about taking the snake attitude from a science perspective?
The snake is one of those animals that shed it’s skin. It’s old skin. It’s called ‘moulting’. It doesn’t have the need of the old skin and it’s gradually releases it’s old skin by turning inside out and the new skin is ready and waiting to serve.
What about you? Can you imagine yourself as a snake? You are working and slithering away for the past year, you may or may not have gotten what it was you were trying to achieve. You may or may not have attained the success you crave. Now comes a point in time that you have to make decisions.
Maybe the old you have served you well. But now it’s time to up your game a notch. You know you need to change your plans in order to be better and bigger. Now it’s the time to shed YOUR old skin, just like a snake. Just like a snake, there are no tears. It has no tears for the old skin. It knows it needs to do it in order to keep surviving. Constant change is the only constant.
Do you believe in being better, more efficient, more successful by doing the same things, staying in the same place and having the same thoughts? Or do you agree that in order to move on in life, you need to shed old limiting thoughts and practices? I am of the latter.
If you feel that you need to shed old thoughts and patterns in order to achieve your life’s success and not know where to begin, having a Passionate Living Life Coach like me would be a first step. Do something positive, move away from your little pebble you’ve been stranding on. Onwards to bigger and better stone! To catch the biggest ray of light to warm up your days! Just like what a magnificent snake would want.
