For too many of us, our true, whole, extraordinary selves are buried under the thoughts, feelings, expectations and perceived obligations that form our everyday realities — the result of experiences, cultural ideas and status-quo constraints we may not even be aware of.
Add all of this together, and too many of us are just getting by.
Too many of us are not really living the lives we could be — lives driven by our fully realized selves. And for lots of reasons, some simple and some complex, we generally accept “the way things are.”
What if you could move beyond that? What if there are other ways things could be? What if you could identify all that is not serving you and uncover the extraordinary capacities hidden inside of you?
What might a new understanding of yourself, and a new perspective on the things holding you back, mean for you and the people in your life; for the work you do and for the ways you interact with the world?
Whether openly struggling through the challenges of life, and the extra helping of anxiety, grief, injustice and pain the last few years have served up, or somehow managing to keep things looking pretty good on the outside, many of us know we're not (and possibly never were) functioning as our highest and most authentic selves.
We tell ourselves we’ll get things together and make progress once this pandemic is finally really (really) over, once work feels normal again, or we find a better job, lose the weight, finally get through to our partner, or meet the right person... once we pass this or that milestone that will give us more time, money, freedom or motivation.
But the time to start, or resume, growing is always now.
It doesn't matter whether the steps are large or small, it only matters that we begin.
Identifying who you really are and using that knowledge to move beyond the parts of your life that aren't serving you is urgent work. And it can be rich, joyful and endlessly fulfilling work once you get going.
When was the last time you took a few minutes to consider what you really care about? I invite you to download the list of values below and, without thinking too hard about it, see which words call out to you. Identifying your core values is a great starting point as you reorient toward what you need to thrive.
