Jar of Fleas

The video below is a famous one about fleas whose behaviour can be changed to limit their behaviours. I’m not sure how true the claims in the video are but it’s an interesting starting point for coaching discussions around habits and behaviours, and how environments and mind sets can limit what we aim for and prevent us from changing or seeing things differently. 


What habits and behaviours are ingrained without you really thinking about them?

How does your environment limit what you do?

What imaginary ceiling do you put on your goals and ambitions?


This month's free photo download to prompt reflection:

Man with flowers IMG 5069

How can the image be used as a metaphor for something that is happening in your life (good or bad)? What does it spark inside you in terms of seeing a new way forward you had not previously considered? 

Save the image to your downloads folder.
