When you are in business for decades, you are so very aware of the ups, downs, jumps ahead, slow roll, and the “What’s?????” that come along, (I’m being a lady here since another phrase came to mind.) A couple weeks ago a wonderful new friend I have been blessed with reintroduced me to someone I had met but not really spent time with.

I know I have mentioned before that we cannot walk this journey alone and, once again, I am so reminded of the blessings of that truth. She reintroduced me to someone who’s specialty is in helping you present to the world your brand, your why, and the true meaning of your business.

Of course, I am going to hire him to help me present even more clearly why I do what I do, what it means to me, and what I hope it means and brings to my clients.

In the meantime, I know I am like so many others. Haven’t you noticed that once you are doing something for so long you can lose sight of the power of your vision? You can forget what it means to you to do what you do. That also means you can forget to live the passion and power of that truth with your clients, your friends, and even your family. It amounts to, you are simply doing what you do….  It becomes rote, almost a conditioned response with no spontaneity or outrageousness.

I happen to love my outrageousness, my insight, my intuitive knowing. They bring me great joy.

Living out of the box, to me, means that there are no limits, no preordained scripts to follow, and no limiting expectations. It means I can support me and my clients in defining who they are and who they want to become. If they are entrepreneurs, it means calling them to dream big, as big as they are willing to envision and then even further. THAT is what causes me to love what I do.

Do you remember EXACTLY what it is you do as you walk through life?

Do you remember your purpose?

Do you know what feeds you and calls you to live outrageously, to live your life your way?

Do you know what makes you feel most alive? Most passionate about being here?

Perhaps you, as well, need to learn how to present yourself to the world. As the wise one who has the most answers?  As the outrageous one calling others to live life fully and beautifully? How do you want to be remembered?

To me this question calls us to question, are your values what you want as your legacy? Is your style one that calls others to live as you have lived, even better? What is your purpose? Are you leaving this world a better place?  Have you come to see that who you choose to become is a huge part of how you live your life today?  A huge part of what you bring to your clients as well as your family.

As you and/or your business go through the many stages of life, which one do you want to hold onto? Which one most allows you to flourish? Which contains the values you want to bring to your clients as you support them incoming alive, perhaps in ways they never imagined. As you govern the ups, the moments in which you take your company or your life to the next level, how do you want to be seen? I would say at this point, call me, let me help you get to that place you never imagined. Remember we can’t walk through this journey alone….
