Do You Know True Nobility?

I was watching the movie “The Kingsmen” with my wife and there was a scene in the show I had to rewind a few times to process. It made me think about the word “Noble” again. I always thought of noble as creating jobs, helping others be better, being true to yourself and things like that. The show quoted Hemingway in this scene.

“There is nothing Noble in being superior to your fellow man, True Nobility is being superior to your former self.”

Process that one for a bit. In life planning and any type of self-improvement, we think of goals and accomplishments. This quote added the component of mental reflection which adds viewing yourself as a former self. Possibly someone you didn’t want to be anymore.

Action Items

  • Write Down this Quote.
  • What Does it Mean to You?
  • Reflect – do you have a former self?
  • Are you working on creating a new you and former self?

It’s good to know where you are going, AND good to know where you came from.

True You – Part 6 of 6

Self-Awareness is the Best Gift You Can Give Yourself or Anyone…

The most important thing you can do for yourself and the people you care about is to know the truth about who you are and how you became who you are. Wrapped up in that knowledge is everything you believe, your mission in life, and the ways you will deal with all the sorts of unpleasantries thrown at you … and how you will accept or reject the opportunities served up to you on a silver platter. You must get an inside-out perspective of Self that resonates as true and complete. That is an inside and individual job, and the purpose of my new book which is a workbook coming out in a few weeks is to help you do it. No one can do it for you, so take the time to do this for you.

Understanding what your natural behaviors and strengths are, while being honest about your weaknesses, is part of that journey to the True You. I feel knowing what you are passionate about and what is important to you is probably the best gift you can give to yourself. Mapping out where you are going to go in the next part of your life as an individual is first about knowing where you have come from and how you became who you are right now. That gives you clarity about where you are right now, and that’s important because today is the launching pad you leap from into tomorrow.

This is the very reason I wrote this book and the next six steps are excerpts from my book. I hope you complete this workbook so you live on purpose with purpose and minimize regrets. Do this next step to uncover the True You.

5 Questions to Finding Your Purpose

Live Life on Purpose...

Do you know your purpose? If not, it’s probably a good idea to find it. My books and blogs are usually based around helping everyone I can touch find their strengths, know their why, and live on purpose with purpose. Ask these 5 questions to see if you know your purpose.

1.  What Gets You Out of Bed in the Morning?

Do you have something that gets you out of bed in the morning with no hesitation? A cause, a goal, a mission you have defined that you are marching toward?

2.  What Makes Your Heart Beat and Come Alive?

The word inspire comes from the Latin meaning for “to breathe life into.” It’s the thing that is bigger than you. Do you have something you want to accomplish that is bigger than you?

3.  What Are Your Natural Strengths?

When people operate in their natural strengths zone they are not only more productive, but they add more value and enjoy more personal and professional fulfilment. Accordingly, it’s also often where they also tend to make more money! Think about what makes you come alive and do that. The world needs happy productive people.

4.  Where Do You Add the Greatest Value?

What problems do you really enjoy solving and feel passionate about? This is a great place to start figuring out where you add the greatest value.

5.  How Will You Measure Your Life?

Most people who don’t stand for something, can easily fall for anything. Deciding how you want to measure your life means making a stand for something and then living your life in alignment with it. Living with purposes means focusing on what matters most. Weirdly enough, the things that matter most are usually not “things.”

When you are clear on your purpose, there is very little you cannot do.

Action Items

  • Write your answers down to the above questions. If you don’t have the answers, figure them out.
  • Do my workbook to find your purpose and start your Life Plan.

Live on Purpose with Purpose with a Plan…

Make Your Past-Self Jealous?

Live on Purpose...

Have you ever thought about making your past-self jealous? It can be a strange question, but we all should be improving and working toward the life we want – right? So when we say it that way, our previous self should be jealous of the life we are living.

  • Being Healthier than You Were
  • Having Fun
  • Living a Balanced Life
  • Great Friends
  • Wonderful Family
  • Fulfilling Work

Do You Know Your Emotional Quotient Score?

How Do You Interact with Others Really...

Emotional Quotient (or sometimes referred to as emotional intelligence) refers to your capacity to recognize emotions of yourself and others around you. It amazes me sometimes how unaware people can be about themselves and how they are perceived. I was in a meeting a few weeks ago and there were multiple discussions going on and people flat out cutting the other person off in mid-sentence. Not only is this an waste of everyone’s time, it is rude and ineffective. Most people know I have 1 rule in meetings and that is:

“1 meeting – 1 conversation at a time”

I feel the best gift you can give someone is the gift of self-awareness. Knowing emotional quotient is a good place to start. It affects your:

  • Performance at work
  • Attitude at home
  • Physical health
  • Mental health
  • Relationships
