Identifying Your “Y” Factors
What are your “Y” factors?
Your “X”, “Y” and “Z” factors are together, what form your value to society.
In my last post, I talked about how adversity builds character; how it can be used to form your “X factors”. It’s up to each individual, how they will choose to deal with hardship. Do we use it to grow and better ourselves?
Once you identify these X factors out of these stem your “Y” factors or core values.
While we may not know why hardships happen we do have a choice where we can accept that everything happens for a reason. We can accept that there’s a lesson in every experience and a positive outcome, is certain.
Of course, it can be extremely difficult to have such a perspective when faced with what seems to be insurmountable circumstances.
So, what do you do about it?
It’s inevitable, the more you break through, the more you grow, and the more you start to figure your crap out the more crap there is to figure out…
Enter the “Y” factors.
Simply, the Y factors are your unique abilities, the things which make up your core values, those things that are important to you. In other words, they are the make up how you operate; your method of operation.
Achievements, which stem from your core values, will leave you feeling fulfilled.
Every one of these core values stem from a set of circumstances or lessons or things you learn along the way, and you’ll find when you are operating from this place you’re at your best.
Look back at times and situations in your life when something worked out in your favour. What did it take for you to get through that? What was the lesson you learned or character trait you developed because of the incident? It’s from those experiences that you can then pick out your core values, your “Y” factors.

If you start looking at these intangibles strategically, these X and Y factors I’m talking about, and you remain consistent, you honour them and live by them as your own personal creed, you become unstoppable. You become infallible. How awesome is that!
