“The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer.” Adam Smith
The words: "Know Thyself" were engraved outside the entrance of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi in ancient Greece. Delphi was the place where the grounds were laid for western culture. So it is safe to say that the cornerstone of what our culture is based on is knowing ourselves.
Yet, when I look back to the beginning of my journey to becoming the empowered leader in my life, I realise that I did not know myself at all. Jesus Christ said: "...you will know the truth and the truth will set you free". I experienced that when I got to know myself better and better. It wasn't always easy, because facing the truth can be painful but truth gives you a fresh perspective. It gives you a chance to start anew and that is extremely empowering.
Eventually I got to a place where I could look back and see the milestones and the paradigm shifts I have experienced. That was the birthplace of my Five Step System of how to become the financial leader in my life. Each of the five steps is composed by a few mini steps. Together they make up for an easy to follow, step by step, journey to you becoming the empowered leader in your life.
The first step is getting to know thyself better. You do that by defining your core values and getting to know your sacred money archetypes®. Knowledge sets the ground for the work that follows in the other four steps in my Five Step System. It is easy to follow and shows you how to become the financial leader in your life. So go ahead and start right here! Get to know thyself.
Getting clear on your core values is the basis for decision making and developing your value based vision. If you want to become a value based leader, you also have to be aware of your values, other peoples values and the values of the company or organisation you run. Value based leadership is based on values, interests and power.
Your money archetypes determine your money mindset and your money behaviour. Together that effects your monitory outcome - hence your bottom line. Getting to know thyself better through the sacred money archetypes® gives you a clear advantage. By acknowledging your strengths and challenges when it comes to money, you gain a new perspective and a chance to change your relationship with money.Home › Know Thyself
