WHAT'S DRIVING YOUR MONEY DECISIONS?
If you’ve read my first book, Team Me - How to Play your Best Game in Life, then you’ll be familiar with six essential, archetypal characters that can help us all to step up our game, to take better action and significantly improve our performance in any situation.
Archetypes, by their very nature, are recognised by everyone on this planet; irrespective of race, creed, colour, language, gender or geographic location – this is because we have ALL have something of their distinctive character traits within us.
The point is this: these archetypal characters hold the key to your personal wealth.
Your power to generate wealth is not fixed by your education, your skills, nor even because of the opportunities that have been laid before you. What has driven your results in life so far is your CHARACTER – and so an assessment of character is an essential first step in your journey to greater abundance.
When I’ve shared this message with my coaching clients, people at live events, podcasts and online forums I’ve often had people come up and say very similar things:
“I looked into archetypes before but found it too complicated – You made it simple and immediately useful.”
“The more I listened, the more it made sense. I wish I’d understood this earlier.”
Added to that, multiple best-selling author Brian Tracy said that Team Me “Shows you how to unlock your full potential for success and achievement.”
How archetypes get to the root of things
This way of understanding yourself really does impact the way you do life and the financial results you get. It does this, firstly, by giving you a new perspective; the way you perceive WHO YOU ARE in any situation. This, in turn, provides you with more empowering options - enabling you to take a more effective APPROACH to whatever challenges and opportunities you face.
It also helps you assess where OTHERS are coming from – quickly understanding their motivations and point of view. You’ll then be better able to assess their contributions and communicate much more effectively by speaking their language. This is essential as you partner with others and when you seek to make any kind of sale.
This approach can also help you create highly effective teams - helping you establish the optimal mix of archetypes necessary to cover each, vital area of business and build long-term relationships that ultimately drive business performance.
The first step in this journey is for you to complete your own Power Profile – to discover your personal strengths by identifying your two most dominant archetypal characters.
This will reveal who is steering the ship, so to speak, and give you powerful new insights into why you do, what you do, the way that you do it.
Be aware though, that there is always a shadow-side to your dominant archetypes. In such a state your greatest strengths can become your greatest weaknesses. Your personal Power Profile will highlight these key traits and, if you pay attention to them, may save you a lot of trouble in the future.
