    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 8: Tying It All Together

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 8: Tying It All Together

    We hope our series exploring the methodology and the profiles of our Trials to Triumphs Self-Assessment has offered you an exciting opportunity to process the crucible you’ve been through and apply what you learn from reflecting on it toward your unique life of significance.
     
    In this eighth and final episode of the series, we revisit the three big takeaways our discussions have unearthed: that knowledge is power, how one small step is all it takes to get the flywheel of significance turning and that there’s always hope – no matter where you find yourself on the roadmap from navigating your way from trials to triumphs.
     
    What we ultimately discovered during the series, and what we hope you discover, too, is that there are six starting points on that map … but a million journeys, no one the same as another.

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 7: In a Mad Dash

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 7: In a Mad Dash

    An exciting opportunity. That may not seem like an apt description for In a Mad Dash, the profile we discuss this week on the seventh episode of our series unpacking our Trials to Triumphs Self-Assessment. But stay tuned – we think you’ll be surprised, encouraged and equipped.
     
    People whose assessment results return this profile are high performers who’ve had a crucible and seemed to have moved on. But here's their challenge: They've leapt right over the processing phase and started executing on a new vision without facing the hurt or anger they're still holding on to. On the outside, they look successful; but inside, they have a niggling feeling they're being held back in some way.
     
    Eventually, those emotions will come roaring up, and they'll have to "bounce back" to the processing phase to bounce forward. So, here’s the good news to hold onto if this is your result: It's better to face those pushed-down emotions — before you hit the wall and are forced to do it.

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 6: On A Different Track

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 6: On A Different Track

    Life can be better. That’s the cry of the heart and the hope of the spirit for those who take our Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment and get as their result the profile of On A Different Track, the subject we discuss this week on the latest episode of our spring series.
     
    Those who find themselves On A Different Track make up the 28 percent of people who have taken the assessment who don’t believe they’ve had a crucible that has changed the trajectory of their life. But as we unpack here, when they reflect at a deeper level on their lives, they realize there is a gnawing sense of “Is this all there is?”
     
    They may look happy and successful on the outside, but there remains some inner turmoil they haven’t dealt with that’s keeping them from achieving their unique life of significance.
     
    But here’s the good news: as we explore here, just taking a small step in the direction of what truly brings you joy, even if you’ve never dared to do more than dream about it, can move you beyond “Is this all there is?” to “This is all I’ve ever wanted.”

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 5: Afraid to Trip

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 5: Afraid to Trip

    A really hopeful place to be. Maybe you’ll be surprised to learn that the profile from our Trials to Triumphs Self-Assessment we’re describing is the one we call Afraid to Trip. What’s hopeful about that?
     
    You’ll learn the answer to that question in this week’s episode as we discuss how those who receive this result are closer to living their life of significance than they likely realize. They’ve processed their crucible, they have a vision they’d like to pursue … but they’re wrestling with emotions that are keeping them from moving forward.
     
    But if they tap into the safety, encouragement and support that can come from others and from shifting their self-talk and the worries and fears that guide it, the obstacles they’re worried about stumbling over can change from virtual boulders that seem insurmountable into pebbles they can’t even see.

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 4: Running in Place

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 4: Running in Place

    Not filling your bucket but draining it. That’s what it can feel like if you find yourself living the profile of Running in Place from our Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment.
     
    This week, in our fourth episode of our spring series unpacking what your assessment results can teach you about where you are on your journey of moving beyond your crucible, we examine this unique situation in which you find yourself with a vision in your mind you can’t seem to get started pursuing.
     
    The good news is, we also offer you insight and action steps on how you can get off the treadmill – move past living in the gray and feeling like “OK” is about the best you’ll ever feel – and start truly moving forward to a full-technicolor life of significance.

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 3: Stuck at the Starting Line

    Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment 3: Stuck at the Starting Line

    Not able to get ahead. That feeling is one of the hallmarks of being Stuck at the Starting Line, the profile from our Trials-to-Triumphs Self-Assessment we discuss on today’s show. But fear not: While feeling stuck after a crucible is normal, it does not have to be forever.
    In this third episode of our series delving into our statistically valid self-assessment, we not only explain what it looks and feels like to be stuck at the starting line, but how to get yourself unstuck. A critical aspect of breaking free is mustering the wherewithal to make a mindset shift that allows you to see your crucible not as something that happened to you, but something that happened for you. 
    And then, with that perspective in hand, setting a course for your unique vision for a life of significance.

Outstanding interview

Warwick is a man with deep faith and deep experience. He asks profound questions and listens intently. It's a true pleasure to be interviewed by him. And Gary provides “color” and balance to the conversation.

Warwick and Gary = POWER TEAM.

I’m a fan of this podcast. I have been since before I ever had an opportunity to meet these guys, but having been on the show now I can freely admit this has launched from a “I like to listen” into one of my all time “must listen” shows.This was one of the MOST fun and uplifting podcasts I've ever been on. What a wonderful conversation!

David Richman Author ,

Awesome hosts and show!

I had an awesome conversation with Warwick and Gary on Beyond the Crucible Podcast. They are very professional, passionate, and genuine in what they do. Truly an inspiring show. To hear the crucible moments their guests have endured and to see how they have come out on the other side is both thrilling and inspiring. Kudos to Warwick for being so open and for bringing us such amazing stories.
