Creating Alignment

Creating Alignment

January 25, 2024

Alignment is what makes meaningful relationships work.

Our marriages, partnerships, projects, teams, missions and experiences are all founded from alignment. If we’re aligned, things work. If we’re not aligned, things don’t work. After all, alignment is simply a position of agreement or alliance.

We create alignment in various ways, but there are 3 questions to create it quickly:

  1. What do you want?
  2. What do you need?
  3. What are you willing to do?

What we want, what we need, and what we’re willing to do are 3 entirely different things. They are created from different places.

If we want similar things, we are aligned from a place of desire.

If we need similar things, we are aligned from a place of necessity.

If we’re willing to do similar things, we are aligned from a place of responsibility.

However, if we’re willing to do similar things for what we want and need, we are aligned from a place of integrity.

Complete alignment is created from integrity.
