A few years ago, I created a personal mission statement. As a solo-soul-preneur, I am the face and being of my business. At the end of 2010, I was called to update that document. Usually the word “mission” for me is a non-starter. I’ve read far too many mission statements that put me to sleep.
As the Write Synergies Guru, I teach people the magic of growing their results (in words) greater than the sum of the parts. To do that, it calls for stepping into a level of Being in the World (and in the moment) that can only be expressed as your mindful and conscious Presence. Sometimes, that Presence yearns to share itself by owning the parts that it encompasses. Maybe my colleagues would benefit by revising their “mission” statements into “Presence” statements…Or what I call the Code.
As a writer and a mentor for those crafting, honing, and polishing their public messages, writing is one piece of my process. Let me share a secret: Who you are Being, from your deepest essence, is what makes the critical distinction between you and everyone else. So ponder the following questions. Take them to heart. Write your answers. Then share your riches here and with your own community of customers, clients — your circle and tribe.
First, who are you Being?
= From your Being, what is your Vision for 2011?
= What is your process for bringing that Vision to life?
= What are the words, the code that you live by when you are truly expressing from your highest and deepest self?
For me, it is out of a place of deep inner space, of silence, of a kind of solitude, of words written by hand and by keyboard.
The Write Synergies Code
Out of the deep inner space of silence and solitude grow discernment, intuition, compassion
Walking a spiritual path, I commit to living these core values:
Listening deeply and with loving attention
Exploring with joy, curiosity, passion
Living mindfully and artfully with health, serenity, abundance
Knowing the sacred flow in all energy exchanges
Promoting peace, creativity, wisdom
Expressing compassion for Gaia, nature, and all sentient beings
Advancing with honesty, integrity, authenticity, gratitude, imagination
Connecting with the highest expression of those intersecting my path
Embodying a focus on the Light within and highest good for all concerned
Such foundational and visionary work is the beginning of declaration — what some might even call the basis for a Manifesto. Rest assured, that is coming. Living and expressing fully from this deep place calls on all our intent, requires that we show up in these new and powerful ways of Being.
I have been able to share, above, acrostic messages as part of my Write Synergies Code. These totems and ways of Being are also part of the code and reminders to me about the deeper forces at play in all aspects of life.
We are being called to wake up and act from a more powerful place. Start by unlocking your Being, shining a light on your Vision, and acting each day in the truth of your Code!
