Vision Clarity

If “Be the change” really resonates with you…

and yet you wonder what that change might look like as we co-create a world that  works for everyone, then you are invited to give your change-maker muscles a workout.

My colleague, founder of the True Purpose Institute, Tim Kelley,  will be sharing his proven vision-clarity process for the first time to a group. It’s all about bringing change-makers and collaborators (like us) into a position to truly “Be the change” we are called to be and create the new paradigms that our society is calling for.  I hope you are able to be my guest on the call. (Or, if you can’t join live, please go ahead and sign up, and you will get the recording.)

It seems especially timely for the state our world is in. We are being called to our highest expression — together!


Because, you see, creating a new vision is a radical act ….

of change agents and change makers. It is far easier to complain about the old paradigm than to create a new one. What currently exists has served to bring us to this point, and it must continue to operate until the new paradigm is sufficiently developed to perform all the necessary functions of society. Making current reality wrong hinders transformation. What is needed is a crystal clear, detailed picture of the transformed world you are working to create.


One of the leading visionaries in the business of transforming  business is my mentor and colleague, Tim Kelley, founder of The True Purpose Institute.  While vision is a best practice in organization development, it’s not always done well. Vision is also of critical importance to change  agents:

One of the key problems in how we are going about the process of changing the world is the lack of a clear vision of what that changed world will look like. Join us at the September Gathering call when we welcome back Tim Kelley to lead us in discussing this crucial topic.

Tim is an acclaimed speaker and author of True Purpose: 12 Strategies for Discovering the Difference You Are Meant to Make. He has inspired audiences worldwide with his message of hope and empowerment. Tim has helped many leaders clarify their vision, including international corporations like ING and individual leaders in business and government who are working to transform society. He has transformed entire organizations by working with their executive teams to bring passion and inspiration throughout the work force. Tim has never spoken to public groups before about this vision clarity process.  You won’t want to miss it!

Things you will learn:

  • The two different types of visions that are applicable to change agents and change-oriented organizations
  • Specific methods for creating powerful visions
  • Best practices for wording vision statements
  • What to do with vision statements (they usually just sit on a shelf and gather dust)

The things you will learn on this call will be applicable to your work on yourself as a change agent, your work with individual clients, and work you do with teams and organizations.  Even if you already do work professionally with vision statements, we guarantee that you will learn something new on this call!

Permission. Permission. Permission.

When we shape our pure intent to shift how things
are done in the world, it can push our buttons —
bringing up fears, limiting beliefs, and other issues
that make it a challenge to get our greatest work out there
into the world. Together, we can make a dent. It all comes down to Permission!




Greetings and Happy Spring!

It’s no joke that the big-vision shifts you want to make, the inner transformation you’ve been working on so diligently, are really the key to OUTER transformations as well. In fact, YOUR inner shifts are at the heart of shifting paradigms, making a difference, and creating a world that works for all.

Over the past year and a half, I’ve been refining the art, craft, and science of collaboration in partnership with the True Purpose Institute.

>If you are hungry for creative passion, for conscious business,

for synergies and synchronicities that make for bigger wins for everyone,

>if you thirst for a like-hearted community,

>then there’s a circle that yearns for your presence to create a greater whole.


It’s safe to step into a place where you can be nourished, where you can find help to support you on your journey.

The following invitation is a gift of shared wisdom and community from The True Purpose Institute, my community partner and collaborator. I’ve learned much and have had a chance to contribute to the change-the-paradigm work that is so called for these days.

There’s a no-cost monthly call this Wed. (4-3-13)

If you are intrigued, this is a hugely valuable series of free calls. (Plus, signing up gives you access to past and future programs.)   Here’s the invitation letter, below.  If you know of anyone else who is being called to help shape the new paradigm world that is emerging, it would be great for you to share this invitation…You — and they — can sign up at the linklisted below.


There is no cost to attend, and it’s an important connection for those who are called to make a difference in the world.


When we shape our pure intent to shift how things
are done in the world, it can push our buttons —
bringing up fears, limiting beliefs, and other issues
that make it a challenge to get our greatest work out there
into the world.

What is standing in the way of your great work? Who is keeping

the lid on the magnitude of your mission? Join me and my
collaborators at the True Purpose Institute in our monthly
Gathering to find out!
(Hint: Look in the mirror if you are wondering...)

Fears come up frequently when you take on the task of
transforming yourself — and with it, of transforming our
society and world. Fears are the natural self-defenses of a
healthy ego. Spiritual practice may reduce the power of fears,
but there is no substitute for working directly with them.

Like everything inherent in the old paradigm,
fears contain wisdom and gifts that are necessary
to create the new. Ignoring or overriding them can lead to
self-sabotage. Only when your ego perceives that its
safety and self-interest are best served by manifesting
your purpose are you free to have the impact you are
meant to have.

Absent the safety of this sense of “permission,” you may
find it difficult or impossible to communicate with your
trusted source (God, High Self, guides, Source, All-that-Is)
and discern the fine details of all aspects of your purpose. Even
armed with a detailed plan and great clarity of purpose, you may
find yourself resistant to taking bold action. Once attained,
this state of permission has a short half-life; as you up your
game and move forward, new fears and resistance are inevitable.
You must know how to regain permission when you have lost it,
over and over again.

Our next Gathering will be this Wednesday, April 3rd, at noon
Pacific Daylight Time.

My friend, mentor, and founder of the True Purpose Institute,
Tim Kelley, will be the guest expert this time!  He will
be presenting the latest developments in how to deal with the
fears and limiting beliefs that keep you from doing your part as
a global change agent.  Continually maintaining permission from
and alignment with the ego is a key factor in earning a living
making the change you’re meant to make.
(Tim has upgraded his ego permissions regularly
and tells great stories!)

You won’t want to miss our next call for the opportunity to
learn from Tim and your fellow Gathering participants —
all those who are bringing great work into the world.

In our April Gathering you will discover:
* How to identify and uncover the sometimes subtle fears that
hold you back
* Effective methods for gaining and keeping permission to
accomplish your great work
* A tribe of change-makers who are willing to support each other
in stepping into their highest self while honoring the gifts and
wisdom of our fears
