SELF Creation Process: Step #1

 

PERSON MAP copyThe SELF Creation process involves a series of integrated questions and tools necessary to fill in the circles and squares of the above INNER THEATER open map.  The sequence by which these questions and tools unfold is important and arranged as successive steps.  To derive the maximum benefit, it is best to answer the STEPS in the order in which they appear.

STEP #1  

At the top center of the INNER THEATER map above, notice that there are 3 LIFE STORY LEVELS.  LIFE STORIES are the foundation of what we believe to be real and true in our world. Often times our three LIFE STORY LEVELS are inconsistent and incongruent with each other, causing us a great deal of stress, confusion and personal pain.  Our happiness and fulfillment in life is related to the degree that we are able to ALIGN the three levels of our LIFE STORIES.

THE GRAND STORY is the narrative that answers the question WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ALL LIFE? 

Using ONLY one sentence, complete the following:

THE PURPOSE OF ALL LIFE IS …

 

 

MY GRAND STORY is the narrative that answers the question WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE? 

Using ONLY one sentence, complete the following:

THE PURPOSE OF MY LIFE IS …

 

SUB STORIES are your inner narratives about different WELL BEING dimensions of your life, for example your PHYSICAL, SOCIAL, RELATIONSHIP, EDUCATIONAL, CAREER, FINANCIAL, JOB, SPIRITUAL and others.  There are a number of WELL BEING sub stories, some positive and some negative, that we tell ourselves. Becoming aware of our “blind spots” and how we are consistently “hijacked” and “de-railed” from integrating our SUB STORIES in ways that support our sense of SELF and bring us MEANING and FULFILLMENT is life’s biggest challenge. Some people, for example, have FINANCIAL sub stories that directly contradict their PHYSICAL sub story.  “I have to work over 60 hours a week to make enough money, so I really don’t have enough time to work out or eat right”  is a common theme for many individuals.

ACTION ITEM
