Values: What Motivates you to Pursue your Goals in 2021?

They make you tick or drive you

Fear Based Values vs Conscious Based Values

Fear Based

  • Take action to avoid
  • Half Truths, I have to do this, I have to do that

Conscious Based

  • Allow you to take positive actions
  • Want or need to choose
  • Comes out of wanting to fulfill that goal

Are you choosing from your passion or choosing from your fear?

Empowering questions to ask:

My objective: Help you to be more true to your conscious values

  1. Think about a time in your acting career when things were really good. Ask yourself, “what value was being expressed or honored at that time?”
  2. Think about a time in your acting career when you were really upset. Ask yourself, “what value was being challenged at that time?”

What is really important to you? Why are you doing this?

When do you compromise your values and why?

What stops you from doing your best?

What will it take to get you off your goal?

Let’s look at the things that you feel you must experience in your life. Why is that so important?

We’re learning what are your fear based values and what are your conscious based values?


Accountability is the process by which we help ourselves keep the commitments we have made.

  1. What is it that you will do? And by when are you going to do that?
  2. Who could help keep you to that goal and time frame?

The brilliance of book-ending.

The tool of prioritizing. The most important thing you need to do now and why you need to do it.

Rank. Look at values.

  1. Why do you want to achieve this goal?
  2. What is at stake?
  3. Why does it matter?

You want to be brave AND rigorously honest with yourself.

“Let go of your good and focus on your great.”


You are stimulated and lifted to a new level. You see the absolute best in who you want to be and what you want to create

Who would you like to become?

What are positive affirmations that I can say to myself to back this up?

What are the actions to illustrate that this is who I am now and who I am to be?


Done before a task is done or completed

Being your own cheerleader!

Trying to bring out the best in yourself and have faith in your own abilities.

“Act as if…”

Take the action, let go of the result.

Good healthy self-talk and good healthy action


The skill of honoring your accomplishments

Make yourself conscious of the good you have done and allowing yourself to appreciate the accomplishment of your goal.

Acknowledge what you say and celebrate what you do.

How am I going to celebrate the completion of this goal? How am I going to feel when I do what I say I am going to do?
