Greater Depth For A Deeper Impact
July 10, 2012
In Neuro-Linguistic Programming, they say the map is not the territory, which means each of us view the world as if that is the absolute truth -- but in reality, it's only our illusion of it. Someone else can have a similar/even the same experience to you and come out with an absolutely opposite outcome. Just ask folks who've just seen a car wreck and even though all will agree on an accident taking place; each will have a different aspect of what happened to cause it, or how it unfolded. Some will be shocked, while others entertained. Music does that to us, too. One song can have a different meaning for each person who hears it, based on their own beliefs and experiences.
I have started sharing a journey of transformation as I transition through a lot of changes in my career and life. I'm using all the tools of social media to tell my story and inspire people and companies (maybe you) to consider opening up, as I am, and revealing through courage and compassion a core story of what has been unspoken but really driving an outcome or result throughout life/business -- the, "what truly is" vs. "what needs to be" ... i.e. I need to look good, I need to cover a weakness, we need more revenue, how can I be significant, and so on. What you aim for is the result you'll produce and not everyone is ready or agrees (I wasn't for so many years) ... and that's okay.
I believe the "what needs to be" is the core problem that radio (and many companies) has focused on for years, and ultimately the reason many doing this could be impacted in a very negative way.
But the freedom, passion and the real growth that comes from letting go and putting out there who you are -- instead of who you think you should be -- will release those old boundaries, patterns and protections.
I know by being venerable with every post, video, picture and so on, it allows me to get greater clarity for myself, so I can really articulate the whole story in my heart and not just the one in my head ... I can communicate it and feel I am worthy so others may finally and truly get me without the frustration, uncertainty and confusion that I presented on the outside, but covered up the core of my passion inside. I always wondered why many things never connected, but I'm now uncovering why. Ever feel that way?
I know it's the key to real depth and possibility for everything ... and moving forward in a new world where even "reality" is manipulated today ... I believe the genesis of that truth for you, or your business is the next movement for connection as we evolve past the status stage ... and I'm seeing the undertow of that happening all around us even now.
So those who come along will discover this is not so "out there," as people and companies start to get really transparent and share a deeper truth about them to uncover more results through a unique story only they/you can reveal for others ... and that will empower a sense of worthiness, love and belonging that builds a culture of like-minded passions who create, collaborate and interact around unique experiences together through a connection that has real meaning for extraordinary results.
