A couple years ago, I offered a Moticise workshop on Money & Career at a special event for entrepreneurs here in New York. In it, we did the Wheel of Life, an activity that gives people a new perspective on what areas in their life need work.
In the Wheel of Life, you color in each area of your life to the extent that you feel it's going well. If you're feeling good about your spirituality, you might color it in all the way; but if you're having trouble with your health, you might leave it blank, or only color it in a little bit.
After the group colored in their Wheel, I asked them to talk about their Money and Career slices. "Why did you color it in the amount that you did?" I asked.
A woman named Taylor spoke first. She'd introduced herself as a realtor who had recently ventured out on her own, and she said, "You know what's funny? My Money and Careers sections are way lower than I thought they would be."
"What do you mean?" I said.
"I thought those areas were going well, but as I was coloring them in, I realized they actually feel empty. I don't understand it."
"Let's explore," I said, and as a group we moved into some physical exercises. (Movement can tap the answers that are buried deep in your body. It opens up new neural pathways in the brain, cutting through all that mental clutter and going straight to the body's intelligence – that's why it's the basis of Moticise.) I handed out resistance bands and led the group through some bicep curls, prompting them with questions and tools about Money and Career.
"Know your value, sell your value," I said. "Focus on the value that's coming from your work. With each pull, imagine pulling in another value that you offer your clients."
We switched exercises, now working the triceps. "What's one thing you can do to increase the value you offer?" I said. I asked the group to call out their answers.
Taylor came up to me after the event, when everyone else was leaving. "I have to tell you," she said, "that was a breakthrough moment, with those resistance bands."
"That's great," I said. "How so?"
"On paper, my career is going fine, and I’m making decent money," she said. "But underneath the surface, something's been bothering me. And it wasn't until you asked those questions that I realized. I'm seriously underselling myself."
We talked some more, and Taylor came up with some actions she could take to turn that area of her life around. In the following weeks, she restructured her sales methods to bring in more profit. After six months, she emailed me to tell me her business had taken a huge upswing, based on the changes she made after the Wheel of Life.
It's really amazing what can happen when you take a new perspective. I mean that in two big ways: the Wheel of Life (which shows you things you might not otherwise see), and using movement to tap your body intelligence. Like Taylor, you might be surprised at what you learn when you combine movement with mindset.
