Success is a life that feels good on the inside

Do you have a clear direction for your life or business/career?

Perhaps you’ve heard Simon Sinek’s TED talk on Start with Why in which he talks about the importance of having a Big Why – a strong motivation for what you are doing. He was speaking about what motivates your business but I think this applies to your career and personal life as well because a sense of purpose gives your occupation and life meaning.

Your values are the source of your motivation. Before working with me, many of my clients have not thought about their values, and almost none have thought about the important role values play. If you are unaware of them you can make life, career, or business decisions that seem good but are not supported by your values. After a while you’ll find yourself feeling uncomfortable, unmotivated, and unfulfilled.

If you’ve lost your sense of purpose and want a more meaningful life, the place to start is getting clear on your values. It’s your values that will give you your ‘Big Why’, and from there you can develop a vision for the future – be that personal or work related. Actually, you need both sets of values.

If your goals are not aligned with your values you will struggle to achieve them. Conversely, if you are struggling to achieve your goals, then they are probably not supported by your values. Often goals are chosen because you’ve been taught they are important, or you don’t want to disappoint other people who have specific expectations of you.  Long-term this is a recipe for dissatisfaction. You need to know and live by your own values are in order to feel fulfilled and truly successful.

 Do you know what your highest values are? If not, book a (free) appointment and I’ll help you identify them.

A successful life feels good on the inside.
