As we move from one stage of development to another, we seldom take time to reflect and examine what we do and why we do it.
Yet, to become the person you were meant to be requires a thorough understanding of who you are.
Who am I?
As you begin to answer that question, you might find it difficult to come up with answers because you are used to identifying yourself by your role in life or by the job or work you do. This is natural.
But if you want to go a step further, you must ask more probing questions. Today’s exercise is just for you!
During this series, you have been discovering more about yourself so you can make the changes you want and need. You can expand your thoughts about what you want to do with your life by taking an in-depth inventory.
For one week, write down the time of day and what you do during that time. Include times when you do frivolous things, such as playing games on your phone.
Today on my blog and podcast, you’ll learn how to review your inventory and how to eliminate unnecessary items.
We don’t have to wait for life to present opportunities to explore who we are, what we like or enjoy doing, or what hidden talents and abilities we may not have yet discovered. No matter what our age is, we can stop at any time and do some important self-evaluation.
Ask yourself right now: Am I living the life I want to live?
I’m not talking about fancy homes, or cars, or elite lifestyles. I am talking about what, deep down, you realize is important to have contentment, satisfaction, and joy.
Only you can determine how you want to live and what you want to accomplish. Today on my blog and podcast, I ask several questions to help you identify what is most important, so you can begin living it.
It is difficult to learn how to relax on our own, and we usually try to “make” it happen instead of “allowing” it to happen. But taking time-outs during the day can help reduce tension, relax the muscles, and return our focus to one that is productive.
Today on my blog and podcast, I’ll walk you through a relaxation exercise you can intentionally do from home or from your workspace. After you practice this exercise for a while, you will notice how quickly tension can drain away.
To succeed with personal or professional goals, we must first define specifically what we want. Assessing and evaluating takes thoughtful consideration. Clarifying what is important is the first step in preparing to work for it.
Today on my blog and podcast, you’ll find a series of exercises to help you recognize behaviors and choices that worked and those that didn’t and why they didn’t.
We’ll look at the most common obstacle to achieving goals, and you’ll learn how free-writing unlocks the brain and allows creativity to flow.
