Recognizing our needs
Do you know what drives your motivation at work?
When you are in a sticky situation, how do you find the resolve to get the job done?
In her book, Coach the Person, Not the Problem, Marcia Reynolds talks about the importance of recognising our needs.
Needs of recognition at work, attention to detail, respect within your peer group etc., help us find purpose and focus on a life of abundance and prosperity.
Our emotional triggers are a direct result of unmet needs from our past.
For example, if someone does not value our opinions, it may trigger frustration and anger. Is it because our need for recognition and respect is not met?
Emotions are used to understand which unconscious need is not met and most beneficial. Reviewing our emotional quotient every couple of hours can provide the necessary impetus to learn about our needs.
Focusing on what expectations and assumptions are amiss provides insights that can trigger change if there is a negative emotion. Consciously creating a list of our needs can help us remain in charge of our lives, goals, and outcomes.
What if, only for today, you could be aware of your emotions and how they vary throughout the day?
What if you could find a time to create a list of your needs?
What if this was the missing link for your success?
How do you start:
- Practice daily gratitude and be thankful for your experiences.
- Practice daily meditation and remain relaxed and in charge of your emotions
- Practice thinking your thoughts and focusing on what you want.
- Practice being aware of your negative and positive emotions. Find your needs that trigger them and focus on what’s most important.
