When facing into any situation one thing always lies within our control: How, or rather, who, we want to be. What happens in our lives is not always within our control but how we respond always is. We always get to choose the values we embody and express.


In any moment we are always communicating to the world around us something about ourselves. What message would you ideally like to communicate? This is the same as asking: Who would I like to be?

What values would I like to embody?

What ideals or principles would I like to aspire towards?

What can support me to do this?

How can I remind myself to seek to express my best qualities on a daily basis?

What would that look like?

How would it impact the world around me?

Is there a word or phrase that I can use as a cue to nudge me towards acting in more desired ways?
