“After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.”   ~ Sophia Loren

How does one begin the discovery process for creating a full life – whether that means…

  • Leaving a job that drains you to create a career that inspires you?
  • Finding your life partner?
  • Buying the home you always wanted?
  • Creating health and vitality?
  • Doing rather than dreaming the experiences you’ve put on your bucket list?

I believe the most important first step anyone can take is to be WILLING to embark on a journey of self discovery. When you are willing to do that, not only does the world become interesting and fascinating, but you become enlivened and inspired as you develop a fresh perspective and a different experience of yourself and who you truly are.

A business associate treated himself to that experience recently. He is facing a career crossroads. While he enjoys his business and knows that what he does makes a difference for the people he serves, he feels there is something missing in terms of fulfillment in his work that he hasn’t been able to put his finger on.

By the time we met to talk, he had already begun his journey of self discovery. He had taken a set of DISC and Values Behavior Assessments, but the reports he received left him unclear about what to do with the information. Knowing that I am a Certified Professional Behavior Analyst (CPBA), he asked me if I would review his assessments and give him feedback.

My favorite thing about the behavior style discovery process is that it allows you to cut through the chatter and doubt that goes on in your head to get to the heart of what matters to you. My ability to put the assessment information into the context of my associate’s business goals helped my client to develop a new perspective about how to engage his unique gifts, talents and values. He’s now looking at his future with brand new eyes that sparkle and dance with curiosity, playfulness and possibility.

I foresee happening that he will soon create a Big Juicy Dream for his business that lights him up and inspires him. He has the tools to identify and focus on his personal “true north” with certainty and joyful anticipation of how rich and rewarding it is to invent a vibrant and fulfilling life as opposed to living one in which he feels bored and trapped.
