Take Responsibility and Press your own Re-Set Button
By Linda Edgecombe
Start to Notice what you
Notice – Where does your attention go when your buttons are pushed? I believe it is my job to make people a bit
uncomfortable, to rattle the minds of the folks who sit in my audiences and
read my books and articles. I want you
to notice if you get your buttons pushed.
I have found over the years that some of the most effective and successful people I have ever met are just
very ‘self-aware’. They notice what they
put their attention on. They have the
ability to catch themselves in any given moment and step back from the voice in
their head and say, “hmm… now that’s interesting.” “I wonder why that strikes a chord with me
this way?” One of the quickest ways
you can re-set yourself and move towards your best life, is to start noticing how you are in more
situations every day. Notice how you
feel and know that how you feel, brings on more of how you feel. So “Just notice what you notice”. To start to make small changes, if you want
to, you need to catch yourself in those moments and rationalize with
yourself. Yes that means get a bit
logical. Ask yourself “On a scale of one
to ten, how important is this to
Take 10 minutes right now and
write down at least 10 Values that are most important to you. Think about it,
what in life is most important to you?
Don’t over think this, ust go off
your gut, you know instinctually what
holds the most meaning to you. If you
need some Value words to consider, just Google personal values, you will find hundreds of them. Write until you can’t think of any
more. Now just look at them. And as you read each one, notice how it feels
in your body. If you feel energized when
you read the value, then that’s a strong
value for you. If it causes some tension
in your body, then maybe it doesn’t belong on your list right now. Now from this list, re-write your top 3
Values. And beside each of your top 3
values, write down why it’s a top 3 Value for you. And the why words you use, are actually your
core values. They are the emotions
attached to your values and it’s those core values that you need to base your
daily decisions on. So press your own
re-set button and start making value based decisions. And you will notice how your life lines up
and truly starts working well for you.
This is truly how we create a balanced life. Enjoy the bliss.
Have a great week.
I would love to hear what
your top 3 values are. Send me a note
and let me know. Comment now.
