There are 8 Essentials you need to live both authentically and abundantly. Since we’ve been called to a Life to the Full, these 8 Essentials will help you be everything you were called to be.
Know Your Strengths:
There is a nobility woven into your authentic design, a slice of God’s image, that you were given to own, express, and reflect. To live authentically is to know and steward your unique strengths for the benefit of all.
Accept Your Limits:
Humility is a crucial element to authentic living. Understanding and accepting your personality weaknesses will allow you to manage your limits instead of obsessing over them and to embrace the strengths of others who complement you and fill in your gaps.
Align Your Values:
The intangibles that are most important to you often lie dormant or hidden from view, causing you confusion and frustration in daily decision and life choices. When you identify your core values, the hidden rudder of your heart, you can live authentically according to your unique desires.
Identify Your Emotions:
If not understood, your will emotions control you. Labeling your feelings, discerning your triggers and stressors, and identifying the authentic needs behind them all, will allow you to better connect to others and care for yourself.
Correct Your Mind
Recognizing the voice of your inner critic is foundational to knowing your true self and acting on the potential woven into your design. If you want to live to your full potential, moving beyond your self-imposed ceilings, and into more that you can ask or imagine, you’ll need to exchange your limiting thoughts for empowering beliefs.
Set Your Boundaries:
One of the hardest words for women to say is no, and yet without the definition of your areas of responsibility, you’ll be tempted to take on or give away too much. Understanding the unhealthy role you are likely to assume based on your personality type, is the first step toward healthy behavior and authentic yeses and nos.
Act On Your Goals:
One of the strongest predictors of confidence in women is the ability to act rather than ruminate or please. The use of practical time management and productivity tools is necessary for action and achievement and they will keep the urgent demands you face from hijacking your authentic purpose.
Live Your Purpose:
Without vision, people perish, so it’s critical that you know where you are going in order to attain a life to the full. Crafting your own vision, mission, and purpose statements will keep you from drift and distraction so you can stay on track and live authentically and abundantly.
