Have I lost the plot? Mole hills?
OK- so I’m known for being a bit different and even odd (nicely odd) at times! I was filming some prescriptions for success in my garden recently and noticed there were lots of mole hills – which is slightly frustrating as I thought they had moved over to the park on the other side of the river. Anyway, I like to take opportunities to film something a bit different and it got me thinking – “What is the purpose of a mole hill?” So I looked it up and apparently, moles have a system of tunnels, which I guess I already knew, and the reason for making a mole hill is that when it rains, all of the moles’ food (worms and such like) goes to the surface and they end up having to also come to the surface in order to survive. Thats really interesting and has made me more tolerant of the mole hills. And I thought – maybe this could be looked at as a metaphor for ourselves.
Maybe, we can bury ourselves underground and feel safe and secure but sometimes we need to poke our head up above our comfort system in order to survive and thrive. I wonder if moles feel uncomfortable doing this? I have a cat who has bought moles into the house and can be seen sitting by a mole hill listening intently for any movement.
Have a watch of my video below and ask yourself the questions underneath.
Ok – so not my best video but it does raise some questions:
- Should I stay subscribed to this web site? Thats not a serious question by the way- of course you will – lots of new things coming soon!
- Where are you at your most comfortable – in your tunnel system or poking your head out of your comfortable place in order to survive?
- Do you have a system that you function best in or do you need to find one where you can stay comfortable and survive and thrive?
If you would like a chat to me, either to tell me that was a bit weird or to get some help in surviving and thriving, click here
I also have 2 places left on my NLP Practitioner Course in January – find out more here – it gives you a system to grow and become totally excellent rather than getting stuck in tunnels
Until next week, happy digging
