6 Steps To Take Command in Work and in Life
1. First, they identified their four pillars, mainly “life mission” (specific personal and professional successes they wanted to manifest within 10 years, leveraging their zone of genius), values (personality traits of people who would help them grow and develop quickly as humans and professionals), outcomes (their energetic profile at work) and role (their energetic profile at home), along with negative scripts (self-sabotaging narratives) and founding stories (formative experiences).
2. They detailed the energetic highlights of their personal story to identify their “superpowers,” choosing among evangelist, operator, caretaker, niche expert and strategist.
3. They practiced theater, improv comedy or other means of breaking through their limiting beliefs, realizing that if life itself is theater, they had better learn to be great players.
4. They identified companies or business ideas in alignment with their four pillars and pursued them, full-steam. Rather than compete in a beauty contest for jobs, they proactively filtered each opportunity against their own criteria and needs.
5. They created a long-term personal and professional development plan. This way, armed with a map and road map, they knew where they were going and how to get there.
6. Using the four pillars as a filter, they reexamined and realigned their relationships, affiliations and time commitments, streamlining for fit, growth and impact.
With a coach or partner providing accountability and momentum, this transformative, methodical approach can yield increased confidence, focus and, most importantly, great results. To most brilliant people feeling stuck, reinvention seems more art than science. But in fact, there’s a rhyme and reason to it. Beyond optimism and mantras, it takes remembering and leveraging your story.
