If you’re going in the wrong direction, derailing yourself intentionally is very difficult – but very worthwhile.
During the current economic troubles, many people’s plans have been derailed – and perhaps this has happened to you too. If so, see it as a time of excitement and opportunity: a chance to re-explore the question of what you were meant to do.
Alternatively, you may be carrying on in a role that hasn’t suited you for some time, if ever. Perhaps it’s time to do something different.
When people are doing what they’re meant to do, most of them have a big grin on their face. Do you? Consider this: How you spend your day and who you spend it with is your life.
Perhaps you feel that you have to spend your day around people who you’d rather not be with. Ask yourself: If I knew I couldn’t fail, what would I do?
What Are Your Values?
Our core values rarely change – they’re constant throughout our lives. We can bring them to any situation and examine where and how they could be expressed.
Here are some questions you could ask yourself, based on my own core values:
- What actions could you take to enjoy better health?
- How could you show more integrity?
- Where could you be more courageous?
- What opportunities exist to build extraordinary relationships in your life?
- How can you model greater leadership at work and at home?
Look at your skills and passions, and ask yourself how your values could be expressed through these. How could doing this be a catalyst for a new career opportunity?
