Uniqueness Your Grandest Gift

berriesYour grandest gift is your blessing of uniqueness.  You are one in 6,789,819,852 people in the world.  Out of those almost 7 billion folks you are the one who is best equipped to create a profitable business following your true calling.

Look to the right of this post.  You’ll find a gift I’ve written in celebration of your uniqueness.  It’s a True Calling Guidebook that gives you 9 powerful compass points to work the true calling process.

If you dare to use it, you’ll no longer want to play a smaller game.

When we play too small, we have forgotten how magnificent we really are.

Playing too small amounts to not honoring your grandest gift.

Perhaps the possibility of discovering and engaging a true calling would not scare you so much if you accepted the reality of your certain greatness.

If you had heard others compliment your uniqueness often while growing up,  you would have an entirely higher opinion of yourself now.

Fully accept the sincere praise in this video and then I challenge you to tell me that you can’t engage your calling.   Imagine that everything you see in this video is true about you – because it is.

Is Your Business Authentic?

iStock_000007279757XSmallYou may have noticed the hullabaloo around authentic business building lately. Most businesses can’t pull it off because it’s like trying to put a suit on an ape.  No matter how sharp the suit the ape wearing it is still a monkey.

If 60-80% of your employees are unhappy in their work it’s impossible to be an authentic business without expressing authentically.  To make such a business authentic they’d have to say, “We hate our jobs but we’re here to serve you for as long as we can stand it.”

This is where we solo practitioners have a positional advantage. Since we are the business we can engage and express every aspect of business building authentically. Our edge is our individuality.

Instead of searching for a profitable franchise or a high cash flow business to buy why not discover your true calling and build a business around that calling?

What aspect of being authentic challenges you the most?  What aspect of your authenticity in action requires the most courage, focus and boldness?

Which of the following authentic business building activities challenge your genuineness?

1). Choosing to play the biggest possible game.
2). Communicating your message transparently and directly.
3). Delivering your service with an openhearted intention for the highest good of all.
4). Asking for a fee that reflects the inherent value in the service and honors all.
5). Following a marketing strategy that enthuses you because it reflects your personality and values.
6). Setting policies and operating your business in ways that make you feel clean.

By engaging your uniqueness – you are the business, so the business is as authentic as you are.  It takes a really big set to be who you are frequently and consistently but that’s the only way to be completely fulfilled and wealthy.   Authenticity is extremely attractive.

I like to call it being authentic all the way, in every way.

Regular readers know that I’ve committed to my one true path since mid August.  It’s my calling to seek out all those who want to connect their link between authenticity and abundance and help them become fulfilled and rich by expressing their true calling.  I’ll be delivering both virtual and live events to make this happen.  The first live Big Link Rally is January 2, 2010 in Pittsburgh.

So what do you find challenging about being yourself, all the way, in every way?   Choosing too small is one trap that wastes a lot of effort and good intentions.

Callings come from within.  Your link with abundance simply can’t be reconnected without the authentic expression of your boldest and biggest dream.  But discovering and expressing your true calling is much more than simply committing to a dream, business or career objective.

That’s only the beginning. Since everything counts to move you either forward or backward authentically, every aspect of your work must be chosen authentically.

You can’t fully reconnect your link between authenticity and abundance without being completely genuine at every possible turn.

This means that you must create the intention and act in ways that honor your natural preferences and personality quirks.  You must act, think and express as the once bold creator you were before toxic conditioning pushed you back inside yourself.

You must express, your most authentic idea, brought out in service to those you most want to serve, in a way that pumps you up.

Every characteristic about the expression of your true calling must be authentic to you.  The more authentic it is – the greater chance it has of being abundantly profitable and wildly fulfilling.

I offer this warning because too many folks try to compromise on their calling and then they wonder why the money doesn’t follow.  Or they wonder why it takes so much effort.

Or they seem close but don’t understand what they need to adjust.  Often it is because they have chosen a lesser dream.  They have tried to lessen the risk by being and playing smaller than their true self and that just won’t work.

But many choose a calling well and then fail to be authentic all the way in every way.

All the way, in every way, I’m doing it my way. Mantra on Big Link Rally t-shirts.

That means all expression must come from a place of deep personal preference so that it reflects your own style, personality and power.  Yep and that includes the marketing.

Spiritual solo practitioners can be very authentic in their choice of business but at the same time be very inauthentic when it comes to marketing. How can your marketing be inauthentic?

One common breach of good sense is when an authentic business owner chooses to follow a marketing system or strategy that she doesn’t really support.  When this occurs the owner’s link between authenticity and abundance remains severed since she’s fighting the very strategy she’s trying to use.

Here’s a very big clue for you.  Find your point of resistance and allow that direction to show you where you need even more authenticity.

If you’ve always resisted developing essential marketing expertise it’s silly to try and push through a campaign that you don’t believe in.

Instead look at your point of resistance and ask this question.  “How could I accomplish my objective and communicate service to my market in a way that expresses my natural enthusiasm?”

The world needs you to be you in your business.

The world needs you to deliver the very best that you can and to ask for support.   If you’ve always been challenged with self-promotion or with asking for business go back and see if you’re really following your calling.

Go within for the biggest, hairiest dream that scares the living shit right out of you and share that with a world that is waiting to make you rich.

The True Calling Connection

Unity - People putting hands togetherTrue callings are big, ballsy and boldly uplifting. True callings invite you to ride a wave of reconnection that simply doesn’t allow small thinking.

Yes I’m talking about reconnecting your original link between authenticity (expressed true calling) and abundance but I’m also referring to a second reconnection – the deep connection of authentic souls to one another.

I want to talk about that second reconnection today.   My big idea is to create and facilitate experiential events where we accelerate the probability of fully engaged participants reconnecting their original link between expressed authenticity (true calling) and abundance.  The first ever live Big Link Rally is scheduled for January 2, 2010 in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

This original reconnection will occur sooner for each individual by linking together and creating present moment systems of deep trust.  It’s the connection to one another that opens us up to more vibrant life possibilities and makes a true calling become more evident.   Systems in nature evolve toward symbiotic relationships.  You want examples? Just look at the plants/flowers/bees/birds/seeds cycle.

People systems built on trust and mutual intent also provide order, support and stability.  Within such systems information is freely shared and dreams are nurtured.  The openness and playfulness of the group encourages even deeper connection and even more intentional self-honor.

Do you see how this connection to one another was weakened while growing up?  Our natural trust for one another was instead replaced by the fears of cultural conditioning.  These fears severed our support for one another and in the process severed our link to natural prosperity.

Our blessing of individual uniqueness ought to be all the proof we need to understand that the traditional business game of conformity, scarcity and competition is a myth.  Of course its dog eat dog if everyone is trying to eat the same dog. That game is only played and never really won, by those who fear their individuality.

Choose uniqueness instead.   Choose to engage differences through revering individual true callings to create greater gain and abundant benefits for all.

I’m creating playgrounds of right livelihood because by seeing the significance in my brother’s calling I can more assuredly find the courage to follow my own.  By catching the spirit of my sister’s calling I’m lifted and inspired to follow through and answer my own.

This first Pittsburgh event on January 2, will recreate what might have been had we all developed without the fear.  Can you imagine the lift?  Can you consider the likelihood of discovering a brand new calling together with others who hold the same vision while co-creating in vibrant New Year energy?

By trusting one another deeply, we evolve more rapidly, as we might have naturally, if we had always lived within mutually supportive environments of highly aware, intelligent connection.

Passion is evoked when we connect to others, purpose to purpose.  Meg Wheatley

Yes we are all connected and we can all play a bigger game by recognizing how much we mean to one another.  You are deeply important to me.   I love your wildness because it encourages my own.  Please bring all of you out to play.

Do not apologize for your emerging magnificence.  Those around you will either feel this call of connection or it will fall on dead ears. What has life become if we can’t freely share our exaltations for fear of offending others? Screw that!  Be your wild ass self please!

I accept that it’s my calling to poke, provoke and upset your apple cart.   That’s the whole point.  If you want both deep fulfillment and piles of money you may need to pull a new cart.  We’re in this together and attracted by your courageous calling we’ll all offer you a boost until you gather your momentum.

I am in such a clear blue field of glory right now that I can only inspire. I could use your help with a little grounding. If you have questions about discovering or validating true calling, with group connection, please ask them below.

If you really get what I’m saying try this experiment. Go forth and spread the word. Feel your awaiting connection to others on this sacred path.  Your soul will be nurtured by the authentic expression and the emerging heart to heart connection.

Can you feel our connection? What are you willing to do about it now?
