Your Life in Component Parts

It can be helpful to think of your life in ‘component parts’. For example, you will have an intellectual self, a social self, a creative self, a physical self, an emotional self, a spiritual self, a professional self, to name but a few component parts.

Make Good Use Of Your Component Parts.

The task, once you have identified the key component parts of yourself, is to reflect on each part and consider:

a) How do I live, contribute to and value this part of myself?

b) What goal/s can I set to build, develop or improve upon this part of myself?

Life can be very busy, often with conflicting priorities; demands from work, study, family or friends and it is all too easy to neglect key component parts of yourself while meeting all of the demands of modern life.

Exercise:

Try identifying your component parts and try options a) and b), above. Set simple, achievable goals within a timeframe that works for you.

If you do not achieve a goal, it does not mean you have failed. In fact, it just offers a learning opportunity and perhaps also evidence that a goal may need to be set that will resolve the barrier to achieving your main goal.

A Counsellor or Psychotherapist can help you with this.
