I love metaphors! But it’s true.
When two people are working toward one person’s goal, the impact is greater than if that key person was working alone.
We both end up helping one another, regardless of whose immediate goal is being served.
When working with a guide or coach, the coach wins too, even though it’s your project that’s the focus!
This is why I love helping people to see the bigger thing they can become
The more I work at getting them to that point, the better I become at doing it for the next person.
Also, as the amount of people I help rises, certain things change about myself that improve my overall situation.
And I’d never have experienced these “little evolutions” had I not been working so hard to help you transform!
It’s a bit trippy how this happens. All I know is that it does.
It’s one of the biggest reasons why I do what I do.
It pains me to see someone struggle to find their strengths, or to go about ignorant of the fact that they should be searching.
Of course, this is life and I can’t help everyone I run across for just any reason.
But it plays a very large part in my day, even when I’m “off the clock.” It seems to be wired into me, going back to my childhood.
I always stood up for the ones needing representation
This continued in a rebel sort of way during my years in the Corps. And in my later civilian jobs I always ended up acting as a mouthpiece for the rest of the workers.
It got magnified as I fell into becoming a patient advocate at a hospital where I’d been paid to aggressively “shut down” the unruly folks.
Even though I did it well (very) and enjoyed it (a lot), it was starting to eat at my soul.
I noticed how the hospital’s flawed system was creating more than half of these situations where shutdowns had to happen.
So I began advocating for better care in a more sensible fashion for my potential targets, instead of just planting them in the ground.
And now, I do this. I help you find your vision.
If you know what it is but don’t know how to go about making the necessary noise to attract your intended audience, then we go there next.
If you wish to be compensated better for the noise and the mission, then I assist you there too.
I can’t stand seeing good people with good messages not get their day in the sun
Or to keep true to this post’s metaphor:
Their day in the lake, swimming in the delightful waters of success which flow deeply below and all around them.
Ahhh. Now I’ve slipped into bad poetry. So we’ll stop there.
You get the point though, right? Let’s find your mission, your voice, your loudness, and possibly even your paycheck!
