To activate your willpower easily and effortlessly, you need to have your business align with your values around money and business matters and you need your business to be aligned with your personal drivers or personal values.


When people try to build a business that is not aligned with their values, they tend not to be successful and lose their energy for their business and don’t have any willpower to do what it takes every day to run it properly.


Values are what supports your VISION and MISSION. Values are your principles, beliefs and philosophy.


You are about to undercover your blueprint for happiness.


Here is a list of some core values or you can make up your own.

Start to explore your values and you’ll see what is driving your behaviour.




Now list them in order of importance from 1 to 10.


Now you have your top 10, you could take this exercise even further. Bring your top 10 values down to your top 5 values.





Now bring your top 5 values down to your top 3 values.



Remember values drive behaviour. No value, no behaviour.


For example, you might list under your business values,” make money” or “profit”. However, there is no MONEY value in your top 10 values to drive that behaviour, you won’t focus on things that make you money.


Have a think about why goals fail. It is usually because it’s not an important enough value.


We need to work on getting our values in the right priority for what we want in life. Perhaps, if you didn’t list MONEY in your values, do some therapy work on your view of money to see if you have various limiting beliefs around money.


I often talk to people and they say things like, “I don’t do it for the money”, “money doesn’t drive me” and other things that drive money away from them.


What we like to see, is a healthy respect for money and what it does for their business.


Our view is simple.


NO MONEY | NO OPTIONS.


We want you to know how to make money. How to keep money. How to spend money and how to give money away for your passion projects.


If your values are in alignment with your personal drivers, it really turbo charges your business.


It is interesting to note that our unconscious mind works on just the top 3 values, it doesn’t have the time to check in with the rest when making split decisions every minute. So, make sure your top 3 values are working for you.


Also, it is good to note that now you have your top 3 values for your business, all your decision making is now easy. The decision to give a yes or no to something is answered easily by considering if it fits with your values. If yes then do it, if no, then don’t.


Your values determine your behaviour, so make sure your values are working for you.

Now let’s list your personal drivers.


Your personal drivers need to align with your business values - check to see if they do.


Here is an example of personal drivers:


Freedom

Results Orientated

Unique

Work 24 hours per week

Quick | Action orientated


So, we need to build a business that suits those personal drivers for this person. If their business ties them down to full time staff, already this person would be unhappy in their business, because their number one driver is FREEDOM. This person might be better off having a remote team that they manage, rather than a group of people working in their home office.


What you write next, is your blueprint for personal happiness. Without these drivers in your life, you are not happy.


We go into how to change your values and the psychology behind your values and personal drivers and what to do if you find your old operating system is not working for you anymore. We ensure that you understand how you connect with the world and how your intellect processes your values to know what to filter into your mind to notice and what to filter out. If you didn’t have values your mind wouldn’t know what was important to you and what is not. That is why we call it a blueprint for happiness.


Everyone has different values, in different orders. You can’t expect others to have the same ones as you. Even in the same family, each member would have some similar (perhaps) but mostly different. It is because we are all being driven by different needs. Our soul has come here to experience a certain thing and that is why it is driven to do some things and not other things.


To change your values, you need to upgrade your software. Your values, your beliefs, your attitudes, what you’ve been born into culturally and inherited from your family are all playing a role in your values. We want your blueprint to be working for you, not against you.


We want you to be clean and clear on your values and what drives you to do what you do, so you can contribute to the world like only your SOUL can.


You will save a lot of time, money, effort and angst if you build a business that suits your values and personal drivers. Look around you at all those unhappy souls, in jobs and businesses that they hate. Quite often they are in those jobs because their mum and dad encouraged it. Or they thought it was a good idea to make someone else happy. It’s SOUL destroying to do something that is not aligned to your values.


The problem is, it takes people a lifetime to work that out.


Lucky for you, you have found your calling. Your expression in the world. We are just here to make that journey a little easier.


Go ahead now and work on listing your personal drivers.
