Welcome to my new training series, the Old Tired Path. 

 

What is the Old Tired Path? Why do we use it? What can it do for you in your work with your clients? 

 

I have crowdsourced the most common Old Tired Paths from my clients and will be examining them in this five-part training series. I’m going to break them down for you so you can not only recognize them for yourself, but you can start to recognize them in your clients as well. 

 

A few years ago, I was leading a retreat, and I found myself drawing this two-sided arrow on my flip chart as I was working with a client. I wanted to show my clients and help them see in black and white how their belief system or energy pattern was limiting them from being free to live their lives.

I wanted to show my clients and help them see in black and white how their belief system or energy pattern was limiting them from being free to live their lives. 

As I began organically working with this concept, I discovered something super interesting. As I was drawing, I found myself writing what my client said they were trying not to be or judging themselves for on one side. Then we looked at the opposite side and wrote what my client was supposedly striving to be. I now call it the Old Tired Path, and I’ve been teaching and using this tool ever since. 

 

The Old Tired Path is one of the tools I train our Certified Sourced Leaders in. They are certified to use in their work, and I have found it very helpful. We will be working with this concept in several different scenarios in the coming weeks. 

I now call it the Old Tired Path, and I’ve been teaching and using this tool ever since. 

What is the Old Tired Path?

When we try to be something and try not to be something, we are stuck. We are stuck going back and forth from this thing and that thing, and all we can see is the entire world through this filter. This is the Old Tired Path. When we’re on the Old Tired Path, the rest of the world that’s not on that path becomes unavailable to us. When we’re there, we’re limiting the way we live our life.

 

Why Would You Want to Know This? 

At Sourced, we work with coaches, consultants, creatives, and healers to market sell, and deliver deep transformation with their magical gifts. The Old Tired Path is one of the tools we use to help our clients understand the process of transformation.

At Sourced, we highlight how our clients with their magic and/or hold space for transformation are not separate from their business model and/or marketing. The way transformation works is the way transformation works.

Our clients come to us with all kinds of tools and modalities. They come to us with everything from EFT tapping, massage, Reiki, to mindset coaching and embodiment work. No matter the modality, how transformation works, and how you guide your client to the truth will be the same.

 

The Old Tired Path is a tool that helps clients see, own, and embrace their truth. This is based on some kind of lie from the past. I call it the Small T Truth. Sometime in the past, something happened, and your client decided to view the world with a particular filter. They continue to go back and forth, from end to end, limiting what was possible for them. 

No matter the modality, how transformation works, and how you guide your client to the truth will be the same.

 

The Old Tired Path is a tool that helps clients see, own, and embrace their truth.

When you design your business to understand where in your model, it is appropriate to help your clients see the truth (or where it is not appropriate), it becomes time to use a tool like this. When you discern and pinpoint what’s really going on with your client’s Small T Truth they once believed, then your client will be so ready, so committed, and won’t be able to wait to see the truth! 

 

That is when it becomes an aha moment. This becomes the moment your client will remember for the rest of their life. They will remember when this thing that was hidden from their view came into view. They will remember when they decided to either let it go or reintegrate it in a whole new way. They will remember the time they were able to finally step off the Old Tired Path and into a whole new world of possibility. 

 

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing specific examples of the Old Tired Path. For now, please think about what might be a filter or a way that you are judging and assessing life repeatedly that might be limiting you?
