Living a Life without Regrets
In today’s blog, I’m going to discuss living a life without regrets and the three things that unlock potential. It’s not necessarily what we know, that can have the greatest impact on our future, in fact; it’s usually what we don’t know that is more important when making decisions in life.
I want to share with you three things that unlock potential:
- Focus Potential on Dreams
- Identify Weaknesses
- Discover Propensities
Let me explain, potential allows people to focus on their dreams and helps them to understand the things they do really well. It also helps them identify weaknesses and discover their propensities, which are naturally inside them to help them succeed. With assessments, you can discover an individual’s traits, behavior, and personality. You are also able to pinpoint where their deficiencies lie, and that will allow them to backfill their weaknesses with other people who are strong in those areas, so they can move forward in their life.
Once that is made clear, then it is important to pay attention to an individual’s propensities. Coaching tools, like the ones I use in the Compass program, can bring to light a person’s interests, life roles, and life domain. For example, coaching tools can discover if someone is social and would excel in a position that involved a lot of interaction with people, or the assessments could uncover a pragmatic type of personality, and a career in accounting or actuaries would be a great fit for them. The assessments can also find out each person’s life orientation. It can identify if someone is philosophical in nature, if they are more vision orientated, or if they use their charismatic personality to influence other people. I use these tools heavily in Compass and I have seen amazing results countless times.
The experts tell us, we only live about 20% of our potential in our lifetimes. Every person should go through a process which will help them discover what their internal drivers are and educate them in the use of their traits. Each assessment should focus on the individual and their interests, and NOT WHAT THEY KNOW. Then, the coach should keep their distance and refrain from advice or counsel about college and career choice, because that unique person needs to discover the perfect career that fits exactly WHO THEY ARE…
