You are your greatest asset – keep it that way!
Maximize your greatest asset – you – by understanding yourself in a meaningful way.
(Are you asking yourself: “What does that mean?”)
Each of us is naturally wired uniquely – how we think, feel and act. This is formed through our genetics, our early family environment and our early childhood experiences.
By the time we’re around 7 or 8, our personalities are formed and off we go. How we see the world, how we deal with joy and stress, the foundation of our beliefs, values, and purpose, are all in place. We move on to the next phase of our development and don’t think much about these in the future unless something triggers us.
Unlike the annual notices we get to review our insurance policies and make sure they fit our current needs, we don’t get an annual notice to review our personalities, purpose, beliefs, and values, making sure they serve – not sabotage us. This is important for us navigating changes in all areas of our lives.
Here are 3 easy ways to give yourself a ‘Me’ check-up:
1.Pay attention to yourself. Raise to your level of awareness how you’re thinking, feeling, and acting in experiences throughout your day. Do you:
- Like how you act when under stress?
- Believe something about yourself that isn’t accurate?
- Know your purpose – your meant to be – what really lights you up. Ask yourself: “Am I living from that space?”
2. Ask people you trust to tell you how they perceive you when you’re under stress, if you seem like you’re living from what you know is most important to you, on a clear path toward it.
3. If you feel like you haven’t achieved what you want, ask yourself: “How is it that I don’t already have it?”
