Learn how to identify your authentic self, and align your life with the real you for ultimate fulfilment.
Friedrich Nietzsche once said “He who has a WHY to live can bear almost any how”, but what if you don’t have a WHY? Or you don’t know what it is? Knowing our WHY, our underlying beliefs and values, is one of the most fundamental requirements for human beings – it was the main reason for My Year of TED, and it is the reason I’ve written this ebook.
I was rapidly approaching 40 and was still unsure what I wanted to be when I grew up, except that I knew I wanted to be more. 30 Days of Drive was my successful attempt to find out what my WHY was. It was the sixth activity in My Year of TED (a year-long self-development project based around the popular TED Talks), and one of the project’s defining moments.
There were 20 other activities during My Year of TED that contributed to my personal development. Activities like 30 Days of Choice, where I learned not to be so passive in my decision making; 30 Days of Balance, where I defined my perfect day; and 30 Days of Time, where I learned how to start shifting my time perspective away from being past negative. All of the changes gave me insights into becoming my authentic self, but the process of 30 Days of Drive was the most influential.
This ebook, and the accompanying workbook, will lead you through the process I developed to successfully find out what my WHY is and how I could contribute to the world in a way that was better aligned with my values and beliefs. Based around the concepts from TED Talks by Simon Sinek and Tony Robbins, the ebook will run you through a 10 step process where you will identify the blueprints that are not working in your life; your core values; what you need from your environment; your belief and cause; and finally your Why, How and What. You’ll consider questions like:
- “Why is it important for you to do this activity?”
- “When have you been most happy and fulfilled in the past? And what were the underlying values in those situations?”
- “Are there any themes in the jobs/roles you have enjoyed in your life? What do these tell you about the things you need in your environment?”
- “Based on purpose, belief, cause, and values we have defined, what actions do you think would best satisfy your belief? What would be the result of these actions?”
If you’ve ever tried to work out what you ‘should’ be achieving with your life, or how you can satisfy that unknown need inside – this book will provide you with a process to follow so you can finally get some answers.
