Who are you?
What do you want?
What is your plan to get it? By when?
For most of my client achievement is not the issue.
They set goals, they reach them.
They are effective, present, resilient.
They get it all done, plus some more.
But one thing I see that holds many back from functioning at a high level with optimal wellbeing over the long term is lack of clarity.
With thoughts like…
I am just going through the motions
Another day on repeat
So much on I never seem to be able to catch up
I’m good at what I do, but I am distracted
I feel frustrated, unfulfilled, yet life on the outside looks great, good job, nice family
I’m effective, grateful, I get it all done
I’m marching on, I’m just not sure where to…
And therein lies the issue.
Achievement is not their issue.
Clarity and alignment is.
To have clarity in our life we need to know who we are, what we are doing, where we are going and why it matters.
Clarity does not get delivered to us on the back of a unicorn.
It comes from asking questions, being curious and experimenting.
It comes from taking a good look inside.
Here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you get clear on where to.
Who are you?
What are your values?
What are your highest priorities?
What do you want for yourself in the future?
What is it you are growing toward, into?
What is your plan for achieving your goals?
KNOWING WHERE YOU WANT TO GO.
Do your goals stretch you?
Do they inspire you?
Do you have a deadline for when you will achieve them by?
What is your strategy for getting there?
CREATING FROM YOUR FUTURE SELF
Do you focus on the past when defining your future potential or do you create from your future possibility?
Who do you want to Be?
What do you want to grow into?
What skills do you need to be that person?
How do you want to feel in the future?
How do you want to think, speak, act?
Imagine your ideal self in the future, your best self and describe that self in detail.
How can you live into that self from today?
How can your self talk support that future self?
What three words sum up that future self? E.g. loving, connected, serving, engaged, energised, present, fit, listening, leading…
How do you want to Be in these areas of your life:
In your family
Think about how you want to speak, what energy you want to bring, how you want to role model, lead, listen, serve. Describe how you intend to turn up in your life, in all areas.
How can you be more intentional in how you turn up in the world?
How do you want to be remembered?
Describe how you want the following people to remember you:
How do you invest in yourself? In your mental health and personal development?
What skills do you need to develop in order to grow into your future ideal self?
Do you make time for coaching, learning, reading, self directed education?
Are you actively seeking to develop your skills, your habits, your mind or are you distracted with television, social media, Netflix?
Why does what you do matter?
Do you connect with the people you serve? Your children, customers, family, community?
What difference do you make to them?
How can you serve and make a contribution?
When we are clear on where we are going we are more certain, assertive and focused.
We are more intentional about what we give our time, attention, energy and love to.
We are strategic and considered about who we are, how we show up, what we do.
We think better, we feel better, we get better results.
These ideas and questions only create value for you in your life when you answer and action them.
You are extraordinary.
Your life can be too.
You just have to take a look inside and decide who you are, where you are going and why.
So much love to you my friend.
