Three Questions You Must Ask Yourself – אימון אישי תל אביב
Above the entrances to all of the ancient Greek mystery schools, hung a sign saying “Know Thyself”. This is because the more you know yourself, the more chances you have at being a wise, happy, and successful human being.
I want to give you a few tools to help you advance in the area of self-awareness, and the tips exist as three questions you need to ask yourself.
In order to benefit from the 3 questions:
1st – You will need to perform self-analysis
2nd – You will need to document your findings
3rd – You will need to contemplate the meaning of your discoveries
That being said, let’s get into it.
Self-Awareness Questions #1 & 2:
1. What are 10 things you are naturally good at (skillswise)?
2. What are 10 good things about you (personality-wise)?
Whenever I ask my clients these questions, they usually have a hard time coming up 5 things. However, whenever I ask them about things they are NOT good at or things that are bad about them, they are usually able to come up with a long list of things quite easily.
This tells you about the nature of human beings. All of us have the ability to recognize negative aspects about ourselves easily.
The questions above will force you to look at the positive side. I do not expect it to be easy for you to do this. However, list the 10 skills you have, and 10 things good about you. Try it.
- All of the skills you have are verbs, which will end with the letters “ING”.
- Here are some examples of positive personality traits: caring, friendly, smart, funny, etc.
- If you cannot come up with 20 things on your own that is okay. Just ask someone who knows you, and cares about you to help you create your lists.
There are reasons that I want you to create these 2 lists:
* In order to boost your self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-image.
* In order to lead you into the third question directly below this sentence.
Self-Awareness Question #3:
3. What does your “perfect” day look like?
Grab a piece of paper and write it out what a perfect day looks like to you. Make every line on that piece of paper in front of you represent one hour, in an 8-hour day.
If you could spend eight hours every day doing anything that you wanted, what would you do with your time?
Pretend that you had all of the money in the world, and you could do whatever you pleased, anytime you desired to. If you could design your life without money being a concern, what would schedule into your calendar?
You will find that if money was not in the equation, you might say that you would go to the beach and hang out. However, would you want to want to spend every day on the beach for 20 years? You would definitely not.
You would end up looking for inner-fulfillment. So what activities could / would fulfill you?
Every day, you wake up at 8am. Every day, you go to the gym at 9am.
What do you choose to do every day at 10am? Is it time to eat breakfast?
What do you choose to do every day at 11am? Do you relax on the beach for one hour?
What do you do every day at 1pm? Is it time to go after inner-fulfillment?
What do you do every day at 2pm – 3pm? Is it time do something you are passionate about?
You get the idea. Create an agenda for the “perfect” day that you could live again, and again. I think you will be surprised about what matters the most to you, and even more surprised about what is actually important to you.
Your Personal Challenge:
Take the time and look into yourself to answer the 3 questions listed above. You deserve the clarity that comes with the answers!
About the Author of : Three Questions You Must Ask Yourself – אימון אישי תל אביב
Hi, my name is Claude Lee Massey and thanks for reading the article above! I wrote the article because I wanted to help you.
You see, I’ve been living in Tel Aviv for 10+ years and I know it can be a struggle living here as a foreigner. Finding a job, living a happy life, and developing great relationships… are not always easy to do.
I remember the day I arrived in Israel I had NO money – NO friends – and NO job.
Here is my story:
About seven years ago (and after 15+ years of soul-searching), I had a powerful self-realization that I was put here on this planet to teach and to share the knowledge I have.
Therefore, with my 15+ years of experience in the field of sales and customer service I decided to open a sales training company.
At this point, I had a full time job working for a high-tech company so on my day off, I found an accountant. Then I hired him and had him file the proper paperwork to open a sales training company with the government.
I never thought that I would open my own business in Israel… but I did!
I decided to name my sales training company Sales Development Israel, and I began to use all of my spare time before work and after work creating training materials, and trying to acquire clients.
I was working like a maniac and doing everything in my power to generate momentum. Great news is that I was able to find my first few clients!
However, something I immediately noticed was at the conclusion of my sales training workshops, two things would happen consistently happen:
Firstly, I would receive feedback that my sales training workshops were providing massive value for the sales team.
This meant that the companies were happy with the service I provided… which was nice to know.
Secondly, one or two of the students in the courses would privately approach me. These students would speak with me about their struggles not only in sales, but also in their lives.
Then one time, a female student offered to pay me for a one-on-one session outside of the office. As a struggling entrepreneur, I accepted.
She asked me to help her learn how to communicate more effectively, and to help her figure out a better career path. We developed a plan, strategized, and executed.
Another student, at another company, approached me and offered to pay me for my time to help prepare him for a job interview. We developed a plan, strategized, and executed.
Yes, he was planning to leave the sales job that he was at and yes, I helped him to do so.
Similarly, another student from another workshop, at another company, asked me to help them build their inner-confidence. We developed a plan, strategized, and executed.
This would happen again, and again…
Each of these wonderful people I began to work one-on-one with, had their own unique challenge, and asked me for help. Each time we developed a plan, strategized, and executed.
They all knew that I was not certified or professionally trained, and still they would approach me, and offer to pay me for my time.
At the conclusion of our 3 to 5 one-on-one sessions, they each had taken took massive steps forward towards the results they wanted.
Each time we developed a plan, strategized, and executed successfully!
In conclusion, that is the super-short story of how I began life coaching (תל אביב קואצ’ינג לחיים) and career counseling in Tel Aviv Israel and after all these years, I’m happy to say I have helped hundreds of people just like you!
