Finding who you really are and setting goals is really quite a fun process. I recently put myself through a fairly detailed and beneficial goal setting, value seeking and me finding set of exercises.
This process was time consuming and well worth the results. I am working toward a clear purpose and vision that I will have attained five years from now.
My goals, values and vision are more clear now than they have ever been in the past. And, I want to share with you the process in which I went through to find out who I really am, what I value and why I am here.
I really went through a collection of different books, ebooks and the exercises within them. All of them held their different purpose and helped me add another detail to my puzzle. In this article I will describe the different tools I used to come up with my goals and hope that you get some really good direction as to what your next step to finding you is.
Resources for setting goals and getting clear on your life purpose:
Mind Tools - Values Exercise
This is an excellent exercise to help you get clear on what you most value in life. I decided to come up with five values. If I am living in alignment with these values then I am truly living a balanced lifestyle.
My top 5 values: 1: Health 2: Love 3: Accomplishment 4: Adventure 5: Community Goodwill
The Passion Test By Chris and Janet Attwood
This book and website exercise is great. It helps you get clear on what your real passions in life are. It has inspired me to help more people in more impactful ways and take action on things that I really love doing.
Live Your Legend
Live Your Legend is a community built around helping others find and do work they love. Would the world not be way better off if we were all stoked to wake up in the morning and get after our passions?
There are several tools on the Live Your Legend website that I have found to be very useful. Aside from the hundreds of articles and must watch TedX talk by Scott Dinsmore “How to find and do work you love” I use the weekly planner that Scott shared with everyone as well as his goal planning worksheet.
Tools from Live Your Legend that I use:
Weekly Planner - I do not print this, just use it as a framework each Monday morning.
Goal Planner - Again, this is a great tool for setting you annual and big picture goals. I do not print this, just use it as a framework.
After you read Tony Robbins book “Awaken the Giant Within” you will realize that a lot of Scott’s inspiration stemmed from his work.
Tony does a great job of helping you find your physical, financial and spiritual destiny. His book is filled with rock solid exercises that will help you get clear and begin taking action now.
Remember, all of these tools are waiting for you. Take the first step and find out what your values are. Keep it simple. Dedicate an hour or so of quite creative time to this exercise. You will begin to feel and see a path to your new lifestyle.
I have and continue to put time aside each week to work on me. Constant and never ending improvement is only achieved if you dedicate yourself to it.
Good luck on your journey to finding you.
