One of the keys to getting anyone to ‘step up’ to significantly improve their performance in any area of their life is to help get them into the character or energy of a more suitable archetype. In this instance David had only ever been used to presenting himself in his primary archetypal expression – the Sage.
First we explored what it would be like to go even deeper into the expression of the Sage. This helped to highlight the
and provided a stronger contrast for the new archetype we were about to explore.
The quickest way to invoke the Warrior archetype is to provide a target, a goal and some kind of *resistance* to overcome. In this instance, the punch glove provided all we needed.
See how quickly John was able to access a very, very different kind of energy by this simple act. As he took action the whole room supported him so that he’d feel comfortable taking physical action – in fact, he probably didn't want to disappoint them which would have given him even more of a reason to show himself capable.
So, ask yourself, how have you been approaching that specific challenge you’re facing right now? Has your approach been effective? If not, then ask which of the archetypes is likely to help you the most. Then get into that character.
