TRY THESE EXERCISES
1 How do you see yourself?
Grab a pen and finish these statements: ‘Hi, I’m…… and I’m……’ There’s no right or wrong answer. In my workshops I’ve heard many answers, from ‘I’m xxx and
I’m a mum’ to ‘I’m xxx and
I’m lost, bored, sad.’
Say what you’ve written out loud and detect the emotion attached to it. Does it make you feel excited or proud, or does it give you a heavy feeling in your stomach? Ask yourself if you’d like to change the way you answer the question in the future.
2 Identify your desires
Answer the following questions to discover what you want to change in your life:
What would I like to reinvent in my life?
How is that change going to make me feel?
If money wasn’t an issue, would my answer to the first question be the same or different? If different, how?
If I reinvent myself, what impact will it have on me?
How will any change affect my loved ones?
What in life would truly make me happy?
Your answers should help confirm in your mind if, and what, you want to change.
