1) Your CHILDHOOD
The home you were raised in can move you away from your natural strengths and cause you to operate in areas other than your strengths. E.g. If you're childhood was chaotic, you may have moved into a step-by-step way of functioning to keep control.
2) The Mainstream 'rule-based' Education System
Traditional schooling systems are a focused on repetitive learning and regurgitating of information. It's pretty left - brained, with little creativity and even less space for free-thinking and using your strengths.
Before you know it you've pursued a tertiary education that’s not aligned with your natural strengths and you're trapped doing work based on the skills you’ve learned, rather than passion and strength.
3) Your HOME LIFE
Certain relationships may also move you away from your natural style. For example, if your partner is very structured, ordered and routine, you may move away from who you are in order to accommodate him / her.
4) You WORK LIFE
As a Business Owner/Entrepreneur you have to fulfil different roles, learn new tasks and develop new skills. You need to multitask, which leaves you feeling overwhelmed, tired, stressed, fearful and uninspired at the end of the day. You're stuck IN you business and with not time to work ON your business.
