There are so many inspirational and really useful tools, mostly free, that help you rediscovering your strengths, values and finding balance in life.
Think2Perform are offering 50 different values with a brief explanation that you can either keep or delete. Great tool to get started clarifying what you may find important in life.
Gretchen Rubin created this quiz, which gives insight about how people respond to outer and inner expectations. There are 4 types:
Upholders respond readily to outer and inner expectations
Questioners question all expectations; they’ll meet an expectation if they think it makes sense.
Obligers meet outer expectations, but struggle to meet expectations they impose on themselves (me :))
Rebels resist all expectations, outer and inner alike
There are lots of resources on the internet that promise you to get clarity on your personal strengths. This can be truly overwhelming! I would recommend the Gallup Strength finder. It’s an online tool that asks a lot of multiple choice questions and helps you discover your core strengths. The basic version is $15 for 5 core strengths. For me, all of them resonated, some more, some less.
Before my escape, I had so many things going on in life and it was just a mess in my head. This app helped me massively to reduce noise. It’s simple guided meditations that help to focus, exercise mindful awareness, relieve anxiety and reduce stress. The first 10 sessions are free. Highly recommended – just give it a try.
