Everyone has advice about what we should do with our lives.
Living a “Mis-matched” Life
Change The Game
But not in every area.
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
Seeing The Value Of Who You Are
With the frenzied pace most of us live, a common answer is “never.”
Building On Strengths vs Building Up Weaknesses
Research That Started Changing Minds
Build Upon Who You 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 from there.
Based upon data derived from millions of assessments and the 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 do, we can begin to intentionally align where we spend our greatest amount of time, with the optimal use of the best of who we are.
As we do, we transform not only our own lives, but the lives of those around us.
Proven Tools Re-applied
For example, there it is often used to help assemble better balanced teams.
Balancing a range of natural abilities across a team helps align tasks with people who have a natural ability to accomplish them more rapidly.
How we make choices in our lives.
Many of us were given personality and other “assessment” 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.
Recognizing The Power We Already Have
What if we did things a little differently?
What if we selected specific tools and techniques used in these other applications and applied them to accelerate us along a success path designed to align us with living 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 or will put it to use.
To intentionally create a life we love, we need not only the knowledge, but a path to follow and a community of good people to help us along the way.
The Power Of Intentional Living Membership was designed to accomplish exactly that.
It was created to combine knowledge, step-by-step action and the strength of a caring community to help power each person towards living their defined experience of life.
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 when they are making those decisions.
A path, that if they got nothing else but a clear head about how much value they already have, it would have been worth the trip.
