Is insufficient clarity on your core values (center, priorities, or key roles) holding you back from completing the puzzle of your life purpose? Are you, like me guilty of “blips of irresponsible action?”
Note that I’m updating this post because I recently caught myself red-handed – twice in one day – eating cookies when I had promised (to GOD for lent) that I wouldn’t eat any cookies for 40 days! I was so good before and after! Why did I slip up?? Just like I said below….my focus last Sunday (immediately after the women’s 10K) was on my stomach!!! ERRRR! What kind of Nutritionist am i, when I can’t even stick to my self-imposed lenten sacrifice one week? A sinner! A hypocrite…maybe, just maybe, an imperfect human.
Once I lose sight of my values, what’s most important to me, I can destabilize. I detach from the firm foundation of my mission and purpose, and falter. I usually take several steps back in my progress of accomplishing my goals, often wasting time and money during the process, which can create more stress. It becomes a frustrating cycle of human weakness.
How do I break free from the blips of irresponsible actions?
I reassess what’s most important to me. I rethink my values, priorities and goals. I re-write and post to renew my commitment to who I am, and how I want to show up in the world. I blip every couple of years, frequently because of insufficient relaxation, and have refined the process of how to get back on track faster with Activity 11.2, in The Wellness Compass Travel Guide.
Activity 11.2 helps you clarify (again in my case) what’s most important to you right now, and what you expect to be most important in 10 years. No matter how you use it it’s a quick way to illuminate priorities that can either jumpstart a new you, or be used as a key component of a strategic assessment to refine who you are and where you’re going. If you like this activity, The Wellness Compass Travel Guide provides a wealth of other self-assessment activities designed to facilitate a journey of abundance leading to being the best you can be. They include, but are not limited to:
- Feel free to share comments on your experience of completing Activity 11.2 or other activities that help you clarify your values, strengths, challenges and/or provoke personal growth.
Part of my self-induced punishment for my crime is publicly admitting to it: I’ve used all the WCTG tools- so at this point I am strong enough not to give in or give up! P.S. I did ask for forgiveness: And, the cookies i made !&#*(X are still on the counter tempting me! I can do it!!!
