As we go through life, we all acquire values and ideas of what success looks like from society, our families, and other external sources. However, this can cause a sense of dissonance if you find that you’ve achieved a preconceived notion of success, but do not feel happy or fulfilled. 

According to Irina Baranov, our guest in Episode 127 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, many people – particularly high achievers – live their lives by default, rather than by design. As a Certified Executive Coach, keynote speaker, and Vistage Master Chair who works with top leaders and organizations to take them from good to great, Irina strives to help people get present and intentional so they can start designing their lives and businesses with a clear understanding of who they are and what they value. In this week’s episode, Irina discusses the following:

  • The importance of asking yourself the hard questions about how happy and fulfilled you are in different areas of your life, such as your health, relationships, and career/business
  • Tips for identifying your core values, which serve as the foundation upon which to build the extraordinary life you deserve
  • Common sources of resistance to the process of designing your life, such as feelings that you’re not “worthy” of more
