It’s this same time of the year I notice many clients go through a shift in their thinking.
When the calendar clicks over to a new year we often spend time reflecting on the year thats passed, and planning our goals and lives in the future.
Many of us suffer constant anxiety around our lives when we feel unfulfilled, often we feel stuck and have no direction with where we are going. This chronic stress and anxiety can have detrimental consequences on your physical and mental health.
If you are unhappy with your current job, relationship or quality of life then use the following exercise to work out what you should be doing more of and where you should be focusing more of your energy.
Draw a Venn diagram with 3 circles big enough to write in. The first label PURPOSE – and fill it with things that bring meaning to your life – these are your whys , the second label LOVE and fill it with things you find fun and love to do often, and the third label TALENTS and list all the things your know you are good at doing.
Once you’ve finished look for those words that have overlapped the most and place them in the middle. This is often the answer that you are seeking as to what you should be doing more of or where you should be taking your next step in your career, sport or life.
Ever wanted to know your purpose or mission in life? Well, after this exercise you may just find it and it could very well lead to a happier and healthier life
