You are an empowered woman!
lesson 1: The pyramid of mastery
Welcome to Module 2, I can`t believe we are into our second month already. This lesson we are going to be learning about the Pyramid of Mastery. Now, before I begin, I want you to remember that mastery is different for each person and it is customizable. What I mean by this, is that your mastery is going to look very different from others and that is perfectly ok because it is supposed to.
Last week, one of your homework tasks was to think about what you wanted your life to look like. Now, during this process I want you to make sure that you aren`t relying on this future idea for your happiness. It is important to remember that happiness is YOUR job internally, not through reaching goals.
The idea behind seeing what you want in your life is to bring focus with your goals and to have direction of where you want to go from here. Setting goals, growing and learning are all part of life and if we aren`t growing, we are dying. But, in saying that, our goals don`t have to be GRAND. They can be goals like being a better person, learning new things, trying new restaurants, setting a morning meditation, adding veggies to your meals or anything else you want to do better in your life.
On the call on Monday, I will talk about the difference between always setting goals to fill a void and setting goals to enhance your life.
So, this week we look at The Pyramid of Mastery. This consists of 7 areas of constant growth for an extraordinary life aka a life you are happy to live according to your own standards. Each person has a different definition of what extraordinary looks like for them.
Before we go any further, refer back to last week`s homework and answer this question...
What does YOUR extraordinary life look like?
Tony Robbins and his team states that an extraordinary life comes from an unrelenting commitment to focus on constant improvement in the seven areas of life which are physical body, emotions and meaning, relationships, time, work/career/mission, finances and celebrate and contribute (spiritual sense).
While all seven areas of life are important, there is a hierarchy that creates peak performance and fulfillment. For example, if you don`t master your body - your capacity to maximize your health energy and vitality - all the money, career success, or contribution in the world will be worthless. You can`t experience a healthy, extraordinary life without the vehicle that will help you to create it. OR, if you spend your time trying to solve all your relationship problems but haven`t mastered your emotions, you won`t have success.
Now, keep in mind that this is not to say that you cannot work on two areas at a time. For example, you can work on your health and your finances at the same time. But, the hierarchy of the core areas do matter and we will discuss this further on the call.
In your homework section we are going to evaluate where we are in each area. Then we are going to work together on the call to see where we want to start to implement change and make some action items to incorporate into micro goals. In the homework section you will see there is a template to bring to the call with you. Make sure you print it off before hand.
In the meantime, take a look at the diagram and think about how you would rate yourself in each area. We will discuss it further on the call, but just get the thinking process started.
