Once we have redefined the problem the next step is to start creating alternative options which will ultimately lead to your new reality.
It is very hard to start thinking about creating alternatives before we have performed all of the previous steps and this journey is very much a progressive one. Only once we have gone through the steps will we be in a place mentally where we can look to the future and how we are going to create it.
Even once we get to this point it can be hard to get creative on your own, this is where a good coach can come in useful. Asking questions, talking, exploring and generally challenging the status quo is all part of the process and important ones at that.
When creating alternatives it is important at this point to create freely and often, not settling on the first available alternative arrived at. Quite often the sub-conscious can come up with a solution that has been laying dormant but this might not necessarily be the best available option.
Also, by coming up with multiple alternatives we give ourselves more options in terms of blending solutions together to provide and optimal end result.
