“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” -Confucius
Fulfillment is a state of being that exists right now. And it’s easy to find once you know the tools needed to understand your life’s Meaning. The first tool is our Core Values. Core Values determine what’s important in life, whether at work, in our family, or through self-care. Core Values attract us to the people we admire and serve as a fulfillment meter in life. If we go against them or aren’t giving them the attention they deserve, that’s when we find ourselves unhappy, lost, and unsettled.
The second tool, Character Strengths, are the muscles we have built that form our character. These are also known as our virtues. Character Strengths are engaged each day through regular practice. There are dozens of Character Strengths and while today we may be good at a certain set of them, ten years ago we may have practiced others. By understanding which Character Strengths come easy to us and which are harder to tap into, we can start to focus on the ones needed to get us to where we want to go.
The third tool needed in uncovering Meaning is knowing our Purpose. Our Purpose is the role we enjoy playing and the desired impact that we want to have on others. If we can articulate our Purpose, it helps with making life decisions, particularly in our careers, so much easier.
During this training, participants meet 1:1 virtually for six 1.5 hour training sessions with BB Ties Lead Trainer, Brandi Mason. By the end of 8 weeks, members will receive a digital Fulfillment Toolbox that includes these three tools ~ their top Core Values, Character Strengths, Purpose, as well as a list of personalized identified activities that will immediately bring greater joy into their lives.
"The training has been an invigorating experience! I had my doubts whether I would have time to complete the journey as a full-time working mom. Also, the process is not always easy since it holds up a mirror that you are not used to looking into. However, Brandi’s ability to fully engage and put herself in my shoes helped me so much. One of the biggest benefits was giving a name to my top values which has helped me to articulate what I need to focus on in order to find greater happiness. I couldn’t imagine a better coach to experience this with! Brandi is dedicated, educated, experienced and genuinely interested. This makes all the difference. I can only recommend going through a process like this with her as she can not only relate (being a working mom herself), but also has a very professional way of guiding you through your journey." ~Katrin, Vice President of Finance for LodgeWorks
