4 pillars of change - what for?

By Marco Silva 30/03/2022


What if we change this way of thinking? What if, instead of finding that well-being after undergoing the change and walking the path we foresee, we bring the choice of a well-being unattached to outside goals to the present moment and finally change the way we talk to ourselves?

What for?
 
When I started walking the “Strange Road to Santiago”, as Paulo Coelho calls the Camino de Santiago in the book – The Pilgrimage, I was fixated on the distances; “I’ve already done 27, 100, 200, 300km… there’s less and less to walk, I’m getting each day nearer to Santiago! Great!”
 
My “what for”, when I started the Camino, was to get to Santiago de Compostela the fastest I could, my what for was in the future, outside of me… As I normally say, in la-la land. Probably making me somehow distracted, "losing" what was happening closer to me.
 
As the days passed by I was dreading the day that I would have to put an end to my initiatory journey at the Camino. A shift happened. I found out that my “what for” had changed, as my true joy was being in the present moment; walking, talking with my fellow pilgrims, contemplating, being in harmony with the beautiful Nature around me, allowing inner transmutation, connecting with bliss…
Marco Silva coaching - 4 pillars of change - what for
When I’m working with a coaching client, one of the topics we normally work on is this one – “What for this transformation you want to introduce in your life?” And everyone’s answer lies down in long-term targets; “I’ll be happy when I lose the weight…”, “When I leave this relationship I’ll find peace”, and “Only when my bank account has 6 figures I’ll be successful and free”.
 
What if we change this way of thinking? What if, instead of finding that well-being after undergoing the change and walking the path we foresee, we bring the choice of a well-being unattached to outside goals to the present moment and finally change the way we talk to ourselves? “I’m happy being committed every day to achieve my ideal weight and health…”, “I find peace dealing with my partner and solving my relationship issues today” or even “I choose to feel free independently of my bank account…”
 
It’s a complete change of paradigm and one of those gives you peace, freedom and joy… so choose wisely.
 
I dare to say, make sure that the answer for your “what for?” lies in the present moment and act accordingly.

I wish you health, peace and courage to Be Love!
