PRIMARY TENDENCY 01

The Go Getters

You are Type A and are REALLY REALLY good at raising your hand and saying yes. So good, in fact, you often find yourself deep in the throes of overwhelm and ruled by your to-do list.

You don't like being told what to do or which direction to go. A natural self-starter, when the ideas flow, you’re empowered to make them happen. The follow-through piece is where things get sticky.

Naturally enthusiastic, it’s easy for you to veer away from your deep work in favor of things that look good on paper. Identifying your True North before you get started on a project and setting up reconnection rituals throughout your project will help you you stay on course.

How You Deal with Fear:

Your typical fear response is to find a new distraction, add more to the list, take on one more project, and start something new. What if you let people down? What if you can't keep up the pace? What if you bury yourself under the weight of those expectations you put upon yourself? The fear of success is actually a fear of failure, and you often avoid both by never finishing those things that are most important to you.

How You Deal with Success:

Success comes easily and often to you, and your most common response is to pass it over in favor of what's next. Consider how you want to celebrate each success that comes your way before it arrives so that you'll have a plan when the time comes. And remember: there will be plenty of opportunities to do more in the future. You don't have to do it all right now.

Muscles to Develop:
