Imagine if we chose to own our part of every conversation we have?

While the term ‘stay in your lane’ is not new, it first became known and real to me when I was a participant in a program called ‘Insight’ run by Bev McInnes.  Insight was a program aimed at understanding how our thinking and behaviours are affected by what has happened to us during our lives.

Oh no!  That moment when you realise there are things in your life that cause you stress or anxiety (big or small), and you are encouraging or even igniting them.

2014 was significant for me.  It was the first year in many that I haven’t had cancer…. Well, the self diagnosed one that I’ve had in my head.  The type of cancer that presents as a headache and self diagnoses as a malignant tumor, or starts as a weird lump in my leg and then becomes melanoma or may be fatigue that could easily be leukemia, in my mind. 

Even though we see the same data, person or situation as the next person, how we interpret it is based on our own filters. 

 We are wired to see things a certain way. 

Let’s look at the story of the five monkeys, a bunch of bananas and a water spray to help us understand what this really means.**

When it comes to conversations and collaborating with others it can sometimes feel like two steps forward and four steps back.  Then other days you are climbing the ladder in leaps and bounds; building great relationships and making the most impressive decisions through collaborating with others.

You know when you know something is right, yet you don’t do it?

You know when you have unhelpful thinking patterns, yet you don’t stop the rumination?

You know when your head tells you one thing, yet your mouth exposes another?

Sometimes our nerves hold us back from moving forward.  In fact, we become so paralyzed by them that having those conversations, or giving the feedback, grips us and traps us in inaction.  This is when nerves are not good.  We are not taking a hold of them.  They are holding us.  But nerves can be used for good.  It’s up to us.

When you make judgments about people quickly those generalisations might be incorrect and they can also box you into an unhealthy way of thinking and building relationships with people.

Have you ever wondered why when the same data is presented to different people it can result in a myriad of perspectives?  You say tomatoe, I say tomato kind of thing.  How we interpret and receive information is unique to us as individuals.  

The way some people are wired is that they need to be right (AKA Righties). Righties are continually on trial to prove that what they say, and what they do, is correct. They will often go to great lengths to demonstrate their ‘rightness’, including hurting people they love and respect. These people are not big on apologies as they don’t feel they are necessary or warranted. Yet some give them to keep the peace, even if they don’t mean it.
