The REALIFE Process®
Teresa McCloy
You don’t have to go through life with your hair on fire–there is another way to be productive and experience success in your REALIFE! Through real-life stories, interviews, and practical application, host Teresa McCloy, Coach, Enneagram Professional, and the creator of the REALIFE Process® will share each week how to live life from a place of "being" rather than just "doing" in order to be a successful entrepreneur. We call it a Modern Day Rule of Life. You really can Forget Productivity and DO WHAT MATTERS!
156: Using the S.W.O.T. Analysis to Plan for 2022
How can you identify your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to make decisions about what to do next? Our entire team joined me for this episode that we recorded together on our recent REALIFE Process® Team Retreat! Using the S.W.O.T. Analysis, we share some of our team’s discoveries as we answered these questions: What are your strengths that set you apart? What are your weaknesses? Where do you need to improve? What opportunities are open to you? What are your threats or competition? What are the factors outside of your control? Taking time to name what you do well and where you can improve can help you identify the projects you want to focus on next. I hope that hearing our team’s answers to these questions will help you as you process your own S.W.O.T. analysis, whether as an individual business owner or with your team.

154: Introducing the “New” N.O.W. Process Tool [REPLAY]
What would you give to have a tool you can take with you anywhere that helps you to notice your adaptive patterns and move to something more authentic? In this replay episode, we are sharing one of the key tools we use here at the REALIFE Process® called the N.O.W. Process Tool. Through the lens of the Enneagram and the N.O.W. Process, we've learned that thoughts produce feelings, feelings drive actions, and actions or behaviors lead to results. Both brain research and Biblical truth remind us that we have the ability to "renew our minds." We're so excited to share with you our N.O.W. Process Tool that invites you to name your circumstance, identify your adaptive thoughts, feelings, actions, and current results in order to realistically reframe the thought to something believable and authentic that renews your feelings, actions and eventually changes behaviors and results. Pull up a chair to this conversation as two of our REALIFE Process Coaches, Terri Johnson and Erica Vinson share: The components of the N.O.W. Process Tool Personal examples from REALIFE that display the power of renewing your mind Practical ways to identify thoughts and feelings that allow you to create new actions and results We hope this episode helps you in your own REALIFE and in the work you do to help others.

As we move into the last quarter of the year, what needs to shift for you? In this episode, I’m sharing a practice that helps me decide what to stop, start, and continue in my personal and professional life.   We’ll consider three areas: Prune: What do I need to remove or cut back? Plant: What is something new I want to begin? Tend: What do I need to give attention or care to?   By taking the time to identify what we want to grow in this next season, we can decide how to spend our time and what projects to focus on. I encourage you to set aside some time to reflect and name what you need to prune, plant, and tend to in order to flourish in your life and work.   Mentioned in This Episode: Episode 68: Exploring the REALIFE Process® - REALIFE Time Episode 82: Connecting Your Values and Your Time Episode 119: The Enneagram + Time Management + the REALIFE Process® Episode 117: Mind Mapping–A Tool for Discovery John 15:1-16 Romans 12:1-2   REALIFE Resources Mentioned in This Episode:If you’re ready to discover what matters to you, download our FREE REALIFE Needs and Values Assessment.
