Yes, there it is: Honor Your Dream. How long has it been in hiding? How long have you maintained the silence? How long have you felt “on the verge” of expressing it, yet always pull back at the last minute?
So here sits your challenge: Give It Words.
Does that feel threatening? Scary? Exhilarating? I acknowledge you for even considering that it may be time to open the closet door and dust off the dreams so you can clothe them in words to bring them forth.
One of the hardest tasks in the world is to tell your own story.
Especially for those of us called to make a difference in the world — to transform, to do something that hasn’t been done, to create anew — bringing forth our message is a doubly challenging endeavor. The typical models just don’t fit. It’s discouraging.
Maybe you’ve spent a lot of time trying to create your messages, to shape your marketing, to put together web sites or speaker sheets or articles, blogs or books. You long for your words to reflect the truth of the potentials and possibilities that are bubbling up inside you.
And yet, you haven’t captured the essence in spite of giving it your best effort. Your words are falling short of saying what you really want to say.
- But how to put it into words?
- How to articulate the ineffable?!
- How to say it so the most perfect people “get it?”
How can you express what you do with authenticity and put it out there in words so that your most perfect people hear your message? There’s the rub.
Even as an experienced writer/marketer, I’ve faced the challenge of saying what I do so that people “get it.” And when they don’t, that hurts, especially when you’ve put your heart into saying what you do and it just doesn’t connect.
And it’s not only the message. It’s your WHO: your people, tribe, community. Once the message is ready to be shared, you face the challenge of putting it in front of your most perfect clients, so they will be able to say, “Yes! That’s me. I want some of that!”
For those of you sharing messages of transformation, take a minute to feel into what it might be like to have a partner, a believing mirror, someone who “gets it” and can help you put words around that vision you’ve been hiding for so long.
As writer, creation coach, and vision midwife, I help visionaries with the words and writing that bring forth the stories, wrap your gifts in words, and give shape and substance to your visions and dreams.
Especially if you are a woman in the best half of life — whose true gifts have been hidden or are only now coming forth — really take in the possibility that you might be able to express your stories and still feel safe. Feel heard. Feel embraced with understanding…Be held in a sacred container of conversation, content, and creation.
What would it feel like if you experienced your visions and messages coming to life in words?
Wouldn’t that change everything?
To open a conversation that just might change everything for you, please send me an email at bjmiddendorf(at)gmail(dot)com. Give me the 100-word synopsis of your story and dream to make sure this is the most appropriate fit for you and bringing forth your dreams.
