Just a short note: Living ” On Purpose” means living with respect and empathy as core values and not settling for less than what you think or know you deserve in a situation. To be proactive we need to ask for what we want and need from others rather than assuming others know what you expect or want. When interacting with others speak your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behave in-synch with your personal values and beliefs. Make choices based on what you believe, and not what others tell you to do. This approach will bring clarity to how you want to live your life and help you put your authentic and assertive self forward. This is important part of your Self- Coaching Process. If you want to read more about this assertive approach to living “on purpose” buy a copy of this wonderful book written by a friend of mind many years ago. It is the best resource I have found on Assertiveness. The title of the book is Your Perfect Right by Robert Alberti, Ph.D.
