I recently received this article from one of my coaches at “The Envy Generator” and thought of sharing it with you as I find it massively impactful!


People’s experience of life is a product of the environment they create. So, if you want to shift your experience, then simply change your environment.

The right environment can cause people to shift their way of being immediately. We say you don’t need to spend your time and energy ‘trying’ to change things for yourself and/or others, rather you can create an environment that causes a new way of being. For example, if you want to impact the way you or your employees work, you can create an environment that causes you/them to behave in different ways. If you want to be more creative, then create an environment that draws that out. If you want to have fabulous clients/customers, create an environment in which you and your company are that – and they won’t want to leave!

Your environment causes you to be a certain way and it trumps any training, development or “effort” you could make. If you went to a concert where your favourite band was playing, no one would have to “train” you how to be loud, sing along and have a great time – the environment would draw that out of you. On the other hand, if you attended a funeral, you wouldn’t need to go on a 12-week development course on ‘how-to behave correctly at a funeral’. Environments demand a certain type of behaviour and people naturally follow suit.

To see the impact of environment, check out this video on what Google has created and the impact that it has on their employees:  An Inside Look At Google

If you’re not already convinced that this is one of the most impactful shifts you can make for yourself and others, consider what Albert Einstein said, ‘I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn’.

Leap of the Week:
Observe the environments that exist in your life. Look at them through the lens of your mission and then consciously create what you need to do to ensure they are aligned. I’d love to hear what you’re newly creating in your environment and look forward to chatting with you about it in the near future.
