Living authentically is full life integration. Are you living your purpose and priorities? Are you one within yourself, heart, mind, body, and soul?
The natural enemy of integration is cross-purposes. Cross-purposes are anything that deters or deviates from your sense of priorities and essential purpose. Sometimes it’s an obviously bad choice that doesn’t fit with who you are and should be. Sometimes it can be just too many concurrent ‘good’ things that are all worthy but can be too much for an individual to realistically accomplish.
We begin by asking ourselves:
Is what I am doing at any given moment at cross-purposes with what I know to be essentially important in my life (my purpose and priorities)?
When we explore our core values, we can start to discern if or where we have gotten off track.
You will come away with a greater appreciation for what motivates you, understanding of why your conflict strategies are not as effective as you hope, insight into the perception and communication styles of others, and strategies for building better relationships and a culture of trust.
