Serendipitous? Frankly I do not believe it was completely by chance that I came to my Saturday morning writing place – to write this to you – and found myself in a conversation with Jacob.
Jacob is a young man who works at this coffee shop and continually pays value to me and my work with his interest and very presence. Today he talked about how he has expanded his connecting efforts from groups to a one-on-one genre. Hence my relationship with him. Jacob is living and modeling A New Confidence.
It was funny how neither Jacob or I said good morning, he just jumped right into conversation. Immediately, I was smiling as I felt the correlation of Jacob’s words and my writing objective for the day. That objective includes my appreciation for who you are – the power of your presence. It is also about being certain you know how much I value the trusting friendship that has grown in our connection.
“The most successful messages are a story. Understanding the why makes the how so much more tolerable.” This is something you wrote in your guest post on Messaging. Purpose provides direction. You have committed to getting to your why; your purpose. To be engaged at this level is to live A New Confidence (the lizard brain is roadkill).
Squashing the lizard brain moves you beyond the ‘tell’ where you are personalizing a larger story by personally and courageously telling your own story. Your power (your art) flows to others because you care about them – their creative freedom.
Thank you for shipping,
