Everyone has advice about what we should do with our lives.
Living a “Mis-matched” Life
Change The Game
Being Honest With Ourselves
But the fact is, that’s not true.
If we don’t have a strong genetic bias in our DNA for math, we will never be a great mathematician.
If we are not naturally wired to have very fast eye / body coordination, we won’t be a great racer. This doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy doing these activities to a proficient level, and get some real personal satisfaction from doing them.
Golf is probably one of the greatest examples.
But without having a natural strength for it, even with focused effort, we won’t truly excel.
Know What Game To Play
What if we had a clear vision for what we want our experience of life to be?
Seeing The Value Of Who You Are
With the frenzied pace most of us live, it’s likely the answer is “never.”
Building On Strengths vs Building Up Weaknesses
Research That Started Changing Minds
Build Upon Who We Already Are
Once we get beyond developing our core “life functional” skills, like math, reading, writing, etc., it’s up to us to decide where to focus our lives.
Based upon data derived from millions of assessments and over 50 years of research by Dr. Clifton and Gallup, they found:
“People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged in their work and three times more likely to say they have an excellent quality of life.” Gallup, Inc.
Create Your Life…Intentionally
We all have a choice.
Instead of “cobbling” our lives as we go, we now have the opportunity to intentionally focus what we do specifically around areas were success and fulfillment are most likely to occur for us.
By starting with this foundation, knowing what we value about ourselves, what we are naturally built to be good at, and the “Why” that drives all we love to do, we can begin to intentionally align what we do in our lives, with the use of the best of who we truly are.
As we do, we transform not only our own lives, but the lives of those around us.
Proven Tools Re-applied
Strengths assessment and skill matching has worked very effectively in business. It helps assemble better balanced teams, and helps align tasks with people who have a natural ability to accomplish them more rapidly.
What if we took the same proven technology and applied it at a much more fundamental level:
How we make choices in our lives.
Many of us were given personality and other tests in school during our teenage years. Those tests were supposed to help us get clear on what professions or types of work would be best for us.
I took those tests, saw the results and then said (in my head) “interesting, thanks.”
And that was the end.
Those “personal assessments” felt more like dream crushers, rather than a vision of the greatness in my future.
Recognizng The Power We Already Have
What if we did things differently?
What if we selected specific tools and techniques from this research and then used them to accelerate us along a clear success path towards the experience of life we want?
A Success Path To Follow
As we all know, just because we know something doesn’t mean we can put it to use.
To intentionally create a life we love, we need not only knowledge, but a path to follow and a tribe of good people to help us along the way.
The Power Of Intentional Living Membership was designed to be exactly that. A place where people who want to go in a new direction in their life can follow a path that helps them develop clarity for making those decisions.
A path that if they got nothing else but a clear head about how much value they already have, would be worth the trip.
Because choose to focus our time on helping our Membership succeed, our Membership is only open a few times a year to accept new members.

You really can live a life that matters, to you. Maybe it’s time to follow a better path.
Never stop moving forward.
