“Being in your true essence makes it less of a struggle”.
This BeTheChange card led me into my morning reflections.
Over the years, I’ve experienced many times the struggle of not being aligned with who I am.
When my actions are aligned with my identity, they just flow. But when they are not, everything is a burden.
After many trials and errors, this is my process when I want to achieve something.
First thing, I understand what I want to achieve. I need clarity of the goal to know where to put my attention.
Once I have clarity about what I want, I ask myself who the person who achieves that is. In short, who do I need to become to get what I want?
Then I design a new set of behaviours to install in my life based on my future self. But that’s not enough to sustain the new practices. I’ve learned that I need a set of structures and strategy to support those new behaviours. This is where knowing my present self, with my strengths and weaknesses, is essential. I design structures and strategies around my present self, so they can sustain my journey towards my future self.
