I’ve never understood or agreed with those who claim that everything has already been invented, thought up or created. That belief dishonors your individuality and your unique purpose.
I believe that each of us has an authentic edge that is a combination individual identity, desires and meaning. That combo, when enthusiastically expressed, is your positional advantage in the marketplace.
So how can you best identify and cash in on your authentic edge? This previous post will help you sharpen your edge.
But the best way to identify it, is to boil it all the way down to its core value. Blow away everything but the three drivers (identity, desires and meaning) and see what paths become apparent when all distractions are removed.
Less is more. Simplicity is more attractive than complexity. In my experience, the more complex a situation – the longer it takes to change it.
It takes longer because it requires more thought. Since we tend to over think important decisions, more thought almost always leads to even more thought and costly delay.
If you really want to make the most optimum decision and take confident action use the following formula.
Simplicity leads more swiftly to clarity. >
Clarity encourages decision. >
Decision leads to action. >
Action further clarifies. >
Authenticity increases the probability of your decision being the best decision you could make now. When it’s your best possible decision, then you are going to be at your highest level of confidence while following through.
Trust yourself. You know far more than you think you do.
Less is more. I wonder if my coaching clients would be better served if the only thing I coached them on was how to best identify these three critical drivers?
Identity > Who you are
Desires > What you want
Meaning > What matters most to you
The combination of these three will point to an obvious decision and follow-through actions. Work it and you’ll begin to see clearer paths.
We all have a major decision to make that we aren’t making. The best way to make it, is to ask more powerful questions to drive your quest.
What decision once acted on, would best honor who I am, get what I most want and positively change what matters the most to me?
The answer will point you in the sure direction of your highest value, which is your authentic edge. What’s your authentic edge?
