Today I want to talk about a new insight I gained from my coach Ryan Matai.
What is Attachment? Is Attachment Good or Bad?
Up until now, I didn’t really give it much thought as to what attachment meant. I used it in a positive form, as in the childcare profession and in our education system we promote forming attachment, keeping attachments.
As I am getting more and more cautious about choosing and using my words carefully, and of the intensity of the words. I became intrigued when Ryan Matai mentioned ‘attachment’ several times in the High Performing Coach webinar, ‘stating lose the attachment’.
I did some research on why we should ‘lose attachment’. Interestingly discovered the intelligence behind it; having attachments places us in a place of fear when we are constantly saying we are attached, we increase the intensity of the emotion which ultimately evokes fear and worrying.
As a parent when I’m constantly saying I am worried about my children’s health and well-being, safety etc. I am evoking ‘fear’ of losing them or them being hurt, this is me being attached to their well-being. Whereas, if I appreciate and be grateful for their health and safety this will keep in me in a positive light and I’ll lose the fear.
Wonderful – Thanks Ryan Matai!
So, how are you going to lose attachment? and instead, become Appreciative and Grateful for.
Love to hear your comments about this topic.
