Understanding what makes us tick, what gets us out of bed in the morning and keeps us pushing through the day to reach our goals, is an important discovery.
By understanding what makes us tick, we have valuable information which can be used to our advantage when weighing up choices, requests on our time plus a whole host of other elements making up our day. Aligning tasks with our core values also ensures we are operating with authenticity at all times.
Yet understanding what makes us tick is not always a comfortable process. For many people, their routine is based on the whims and needs of loved ones and other significant members of their circle of influence. They avoid planning and goal setting, possibly for fear of not being able to live up to their ambitions.
And, of course, by not ‘testing themselves’ they never fail but then they never truly live their potential either.
Once we have gone about understanding what makes us tick, it is difficult to not, sooner or later, begin to want to live life in accordance with our ‘true self’. How this looks in practice will be as individual as we all are.
To explore the issue of understanding what makes us tick as part of a coaching conversation, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
