What if I told you there was a tool that could help you figure out what you should be doing with your life?
Sounds pretty amazing, right?!
What if I told you that tool was the ever-popular personality assessment?!
Before you roll your eyes, hear me out.
I used to laugh at these new-age, woo-woo BS tests. If it wasn’t scientifically proven, I didn’t want to hear it.
But then I took one…just for fun…and something happened.
It was accurate. Like, eerily accurate. Like, I swore that one of my family members was playing a trick on me and messed with the results because there is no way something can know me to a “T” like that accurate.
And reading about myself for the first time in that assessment changed the way I saw myself.
For so long I had obsessed over my “weaknesses”.
Why couldn’t I just be more organized?! It’s not that hard. Just put things back where they belong!
Why do I care so much about what other people think?! Why do I take on their emotions? Just let it go. For the love of God, let it go, woman!
Stop seeking so much attention! You’re not the center of the universe. Sit down!
And, on and on…
I have a feeling your inner monologue is similar. Maybe different in words but the same tone.
But when I read that personality assessment, I realized that I was literally built this way. It’s not a weakness. It’s not a glitch. This is who I am. This is how I tick. And I can spend the rest of my life beating myself up for who I’m not. Or I can decide to embrace who I am.
This really started me down a road of self-acceptance and self-compassion. And that is ultimately what led me to do the things that light me up.
And I know it can do the same for you.
So this week on the podcast, I have back my friend, Christine McAlister. Christine is a business coach, the founder of Life With Passion, and the bestselling author of The Income Replacement Formula: Seven Simple Steps To Doing What You Love And Making Six Figures From Anywhere. She helps high-achievers replace their incomes & make 6-figures with businesses they love AND that support the life they want to live.
Luckily for us, she is also a certified administrator of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment.
We’ll talk all about how to figure out what your personality type is and how that can help you in a search for the perfect career.
