SPIRAL – 5 Steps
All of us have resources and strengths that we can leverage to achieve success. The problem is that because of all the difficulties, challenges, and stresses that we endure, we sometimes forget all about these resources.
The SPIRAL ™ model does not explore and probe failures in the past. Instead, the focus is all about your success stories and highlighting your resources that you can leverage to achieve your goals.
Going on this journey, you start by creating small success stories. Along the way, you learn more and more, how to identify, improve, and leverage your resources.
5 Steps, Round the SPIRAL
Define Your Vision - Your Preferred Future
You begin your journey, not by looking back, but by looking forward: envision your Preferred Future. What do you like to see? Visualize it, enjoy it, and make it yours.
Interpret This Vision
As an example, if your vision is “to be a happier family”, ask yourself: What does this success look like? What will you be doing instead? What would you notice?
Remember Your Resources and Your Strengths
It is very easy to find weaknesses. We humans can easily identify a black spot on a big white screen. It is also very likely for us to take our blessings for granted. Ask yourself: What do you do for a living? How did you become good at that? What is the best thing that you can say about yourself?
Make an Assessment
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being your preferred future, where do you think you are now? Why do you think you are on that number?
Leverage Your Resources
Define how you can progress one score towards 10. Leverage your resources to help you achieve this.
