Best Self – SPHERES

SPHERES is an acronym that looks at every area of a person’s life to help him or her identify their strengths and weaknesses. It comes from the book Best Self by Mike Bayer.
Social Life
Think about your behaviours that contribute to a positive social life. What is it about your behaviours that keeps you from what you want in your social life? How do you modify your behaviour to make your social life feel like a 10.
Personal Life
Pay attention to the thoughts that go through your head throughout the day. Look for common themes and tones in your internal dialogue. Is it generally positive? Or is it pessimistic? When we listen to what we say to ourselves, we can begin to rescript that conversation. The next time you notice a negative thought, imagine an alarm bell going off in your head. Then, choose a new message to tell yourself instead.
Health
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of information out there about nutrition. The simplest way to look at it is to view food as fuel for your Best Self. What you put into your body has a direct correlation to your output. Find some exercises that you enjoy and do it daily.
Education
Commit to learning even if you never liked school, your Best Self is thirsty for knowledge. Write down things that you’d love to learn about. Ask yourself why you aren’t currently spending time on learning these things. Education is the driver behind getting to your Best Self.
Relationships
The only person you can control is yourself, and if you show up as your Best Self at all times, your relationships will be healthy and fulfilling. In order to have meaningful relationships, you must start by answering this key question: what are your core values? When you are aware of your own values, you can identify people in your life whose values sync up with yours. Your values can change over time as your priorities in life change.
Employment
Work isn’t just about money and doesn’t have to be something you dread. You can, and should, make your work fit into your overall authentic life. If you’re unhappy with your current employment situation, consider the possibility that the issue lies with you, rather than the job. Also consider the possibility that you’re trying to work in an industry that just doesn’t match up with who you are.
Spiritual Life
Your spiritual self is the place within you from which all goodness and light radiates outward. It is where you form your integrity, values and how you treat other people. People tend to neglect their spiritual life, but faith can transform your life.
Remember to get to your Best Self will take change.
