‘The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as our culture has set’.
The planet desperately needs YOU to step forward and make the world more habitable and humane but I often see good people hesitate because the more sensitive you are, the more shy you’ll be about stepping forward. The more scrupulous you are, the more likely you’ll be to step aside and let others take centre stage, assuming they’re better than you. You may even have been taught that wanting to be centre stage is vain or selfish.
This is tragic for you, because you have to live with the frustration of knowing that you’re not where you should be in life, not having the business you should have and not making the money you could.
It’s tragic for the people who need you because they don’t get you and it’s tragic for the world as others take your place who may be more motivated by their desire for personal power and advancement.
‘Don’t chase the paper. Chase the dream.’
The people who need my help are the people who want to make the world ‘habitable and humane’ but who hesitate to step forward.
I help them become more powerful with a better business making more money, a public profile, press exposure, a book or speaking on stage.
I help the good guys get ahead and if they don’t get my help, they may never make the impact they could or have the business they should and the world will not have their contribution.
When you’re clear who needs your help and what they’ll miss if they don’t get your help – it helps you get over yourself! It helps you drop your self-consciousness so you are free to reach out to people who need you and show them how you can help. In business, this is how you make money.
When you’re clear who needs your help, you can offer your help, service or product. No fear.
When you are clear how you can help, you will make money. No fear.
When you are clear about what you want to change, none of this feels like work.
Who needs me most?
Who are my people?
What happens if they don’t get my help?
