Who am I? Taking a look at passions

Sometimes, we get so caught up in doing all the things that we think we ought to do, or should do, or need to do, or have to do, that we lose touch with what it is exactly that we want to do. And sometimes we get lost doing all the things that we think other people want us to do or expect us to do. Now, it’s time to get back in touch with exactly what it is that makes our hearts sing: those things that we’re passionate about.

Who am I? Taking a look at interests

Things you really love doing.
Hobbies you love. Or wish you had […]

Who am I? Taking a look at values

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ll be posting a series of activities to help you what I referred to as the three happiness questions in my talk at the Authentic Happiness Summit. So get out your notebook or journal, where you can record your observations and answers to the upcoming activities. Some things might be easier to print out and just paste in, as with this one.

One of the most basic steps to looking at who we are is to examine our values, and yesterday we did a quick values exercise. So what are values? Values are those things that really matter to each of us: the ideas and beliefs we hold as special. A value is something which is intrinsic to what somebody feels to be […]
