Path to Purpose Series: The Myth of Motivation, A Values-Driven Conversation


Hello, Life After Sports community! We’re coming back to you with another values-driven workshop since it was such a powerful conversation and we want as many of you as possible to be able to benefit from an approach that allows you to create more meaning and fulfillment in your own lives. If you weren’t able to make the last workshop, this is your chance to get a more dialed-in workshop that will be strictly donation-based.

See description below:
What really drives us to execute in the pursuit of high achievement? What allows us to complete tasks that truly move the needle in life? What the research in performance psychology shows is that getting meaningful results isn't actually about "feeling" motivated all the time. In fact, it's our values that guide our decision-making, drive our actions, and influence our evaluation of success. Understanding what we value allows us to set goals that are personally meaningful, serving as a compass that ground us and guide us. In this workshop, Ariel and Natasha will help you connect to your values so you can escape the "motivation" trap and still take action toward meaningful goals that bring you greater fulfillment in work and life.

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify core values and personal definitions of success
  2. Let go of “motivation” as a guiding force and commit to values-driven behavior
  3. Align work to authentic expression to feel more energized and engaged
