The fear of failure is always connected to a negative filament of the unknown. This fear is in a lack of presence – a pouring out of power, a drawing down by an unnecessary visit to the future.
Arriving at my writing place, Pam was walking to her car. Pam is the artist who masterfully created the cover of my book. She told me of her search for a learning experience. She is seeking an experience that supports a faithful movement to the next level in her purposing (what Pam calls work). She is not looking to attain to this level of purposing via someone’s canned process, but by energizing performance as she courses a structure congruent with her authentic self.
Pam’s journey has been about her commitment to her vision. On this journey, she has opened the desire of focus; a desire unleashed to drive purpose forward on the tracks of focus. She is envisioning her future with courage in order to facilitate progress in the present.
By assisting others in finding the creative self, Pam is facilitating her purpose and that of those she serves. As she artfully states, “It’s about the vision …” Purpose (or purposing) frees us to confidently focus – without apology – on what is most important in the power of the present.
