Time Is Flying, Jump In!

Have you ever noticed how often we use metaphors like “Time is Flying” in speech?

What are metaphors revealing about how you think?
Few people realize how much metaphors reveal about how we think and feel.  Metaphors like “jump in” have a powerful influence in language. In fact, the average person will use approximately six metaphors a minute in normal conversation. Metaphors are fundamental to how we organize our thoughts and make sense of the world, how we express emotion and relate to others.  

                                                                                                                                                                                        Think of each time you’ve said (or you hear others say) ‘let’s take the next step’, ‘give me a hand’, ‘my relationship is at a crossroads‘ – they are all metaphors!

Try This:
Tune into your local talk radio station (or discreetly listen into a conversation between two strangers) and just listen to the use of language. Count how many metaphors you hear!

Metaphors expand thinking
Coaches help others bridge the conscious and unconscious mind by expanding on metaphors spoken by the client. It’s a powerful and subtle technique to expand a person’s thinking, connect to the subconscious drivers and reveal complex emotions that might be holding a person back.
