On the adventure of bringing your work into the world, have you ever asked yourself, “Why would anyone want to do this with me when there are already so many experienced people doing this kind of work?”
Early on I was faced with this very same question. One of the things that moved me into action around ‘my work' was my frustration in spending most of my energy on the dreaming and visioning of it and not enough in the doing of it.
At first, I experienced that question as a roadblock, it substantiated my inner doubts and grounded my fears. Then something quite interesting occurred, it became the pathway for the evolution of my work. The continued engagement of that question was the compelling force that moved me into finding my own unique way of working, imbued with my talents, strengths and life experience. This not so subtle inquiry can be just the thing that forms the cobblestone road to your unique contribution.
The value in acting upon a vision isn't so much in what you have to offer right now. Your vision is the rocket fuel that propels you, like a space ship breaking free from the gravitational pull of the planet, to “boldly go where you have never gone before.”
The value is in who you become because of it and what that makes possible for others.The only thing that you can really give another is the certainty of your own experience. You can't teach what you haven't known. You can't lead where you haven't been.
Here's the thing: Your business, your work, is not only your gift to life, your service to the world. It is an accelerated path to your personal evolution and your evolution contributes to Life!
