Self-Awareness, Expectations &
Outcomes in Work and Life
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning.
-John C. Maxwell
What we say and do in the workplace is often a reflection of how we grew up. Why is this worth noting? The values and behavior habits we developed growing up are often acted out in both our work and home environments.
The more we know about ourselves, what we value in life – and business, the more honest and open we are likely to be with ourselves about what is working, what is not, when we are ‘true’ to ourselves, and when we are not.
Repeating Patterns, Like Habits, can be Pleasing or Annoying
“How many people are trapped in their everyday habits: part numb, part frightened, part indifferent? To have a better life, we must keep choosing how we’re living.”
If you aren’t bouncing out of bed in the morning, or finding laughter and happiness intermingled throughout your day, it’s time to step back and take a look at what you are doing and how you are doing it.
Does your life feel a bit like you are running on and on, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel? Does it feel as if the joy and fun are seeping out of your life? Is it possible depression is seeping into your life?
