Feb 2 – Embrace Your Shadow Side

Your Shadow Has Gifts For You - Can You Find Them?

Your Shadow Has Gifts For You - Can You Find Them?

Cheetah Certified Project Manager (CCPM) Tip of the Day

February 2 – Until you take responsibility for every experience of your life, you keep creating the same dynamics. Practice unconditional acceptance of all parts of you – even your shadow side – to create amazing results in your life.

My favorite movie is Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. He gets stuck in a time warp repeating the same day over and over and over in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as a weatherman covering Ground Hog’s day. That is until he accepts his life just the way it is. I share my birthday with Punxsutawney Phil (that special weather-predicting groundhog). This somewhat ugly large rodent has a well established holiday. If Groundhog Phil sees his shadow (meaning it’s sunny out), he gets scared and runs back into his hole. The means we will experience six more weeks of winter. Yet he’s only right 39% of the time.

How about you – does seeing your shadow side send you running for cover, anticipating a continued onslaught of coldness in your life? We all have our strengths and our challenges. And many times, our strengths lead to our challenges and vice versa. If Phil’s only right 39% of the time with interpreting what his shadow means, maybe the same is true for the rest of us. Learn how to face those things in life that might make you want to run back in your hole as, instead, gifts to bring out the best in you. www.cheetahcertified.com
