I was looking for inspiration this morning when an email popped up about the Entrepreneurial Think Tank’s Conference – Power of Connections in September. One of the speakers is Jennifer Tuma-Young who wrote the book Balance your Life, Balance the Scale!
I was curious so I clicked the link to check out what Jennifer had to say. Anything that will help me to balance the scale and reach goal weight is of interest to me! I found an interesting posting on “Identify Your Anchors“. To say the least, I was curious because I THOUGHT I knew what my anchors were but it seems that I had balance and anchors a little mixed up. To me balance is having everything in a row or running smoothly – no ruffles in my feathers. WOW! Did she ruffle these feathers! Anchors are core values – those that are part of who we are and yes, I had forgotten what my core values were in the midst of this crazy thing called LIFE.
So, I took the challenge to identity my list of values. For some this may be easy but for me as I am peeling off the layers of who I am versus who I think I should be, it was a little bit more difficult. I have a hard time deciding what are MY values and those that are imposed by others. So, I read the list (click the challenge link to see them) and begin listing all of them that I thought applied to me. Okay, so now the true test – praying and deciding what were my anchors. Here goes:
- Financial Independence
- Inspiration (I couldn’t decide between that or Encouragement)
These go along with my 4 Business principles that I had to identify during a recent training:
- Positive Attitude
- Customer Satisfaction
- An Encouragement to Others
- A Balanced Life
What are your anchors? Take the challenge. Come hear Jennifer at the conference. Read her book. I can’t wait to hear what else she has to say. Share your thoughts and comments, I love to hear from you.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
