Identity - this how to build and grow a healthy and robust self -concept. Most crises in life, whether that be in our careers or in our personal lives, are a crisis of identity. Our true identity is not defined by ‘out there’ ie our professional and personal roles we play in our lives, but ultimately from within. Having a healthy robust identity means we can handle any uncertainties that life is guaranteed to bring.

Life Stage – there are 4 distinct phases which most of us experience in our lives. This is understanding the emotional and values driven journey from ambition to meaning. As we journey through these life stages our lives become less about ourselves and more about others. These stages happen organically all on their own. One of the reasons people feel emotionally unwell is because they are mentally stuck in a life stage they no longer resonate with or belong to. They are searching for something else. Something more. This is an emotional hallmark of changing from one stage to another.

Values – our ultimate emotional compass. When we follow this compass, we feel emotionally aligned. We feel good. When we don’t follow this compass, we feel out of sorts, we feel emotionally unwell. Our compass continually evolves and when we don’t keep up with who we are becoming, life can become a lot more difficult. This is typically identified when we have out grown a career, or a relationship, or a community and so on.

Perspective – a clean healthy perspective is tantamount to having a life of meaning and fulfilment. All perspective directly affects all our perceptions of our reality. The quality of our perspective influences our focus or thoughts. With all thoughts we induce a meaning, and the meaning we give our thoughts produces and emotion. When facing uncertainty we need to get things ‘into perspective.
