This group of posts are meant as inspiration and motivation for you to work on making your values and goals achievable. Sometimes we want something for ourselves, but we set the bar so high that we strive all our lives and never seem to be able to reach our goals. I don’t want to spend my life striving for something that I may reach when Im 80 when I can change the wording and enjoy reaching it everyday. I’ll tell you how.
Imagine my value Adventure and Creativity. Some may think that they would be successful in living this value if they went on an off-track ten-day trekking in Amazonas or made a never-seen-before type of dress and had it displayed at a fashion show in Paris. Setting goals like that for yourself is not empowering and you risk losing touch with your actual purpose of doing those things if you have to save up for a ticket to Brazil first or have to work harder than hard learning about fashion before you can even start thinking about the dress.
Which is why Anthony Robbins created this empowering perspective on your values that I have used and highly recommend you to work on.
I live my value, Adventure and Creativity, whenever I take a break to think things through. Whenever I have butterflies in my stomach. Whenever I accept a challenge and whenever I play.
It can be quite simple. I get all my good ideas when I take breaks to think and let my thoughts fly. I get butterflies when I am excited about something – which means that it is an adventure of some sort that I am engaging in.
Try it out.
