Oh my gosh!!! I’ve had a particularly difficult few weeks working through how to move forward with a certain project that really means a lot to me – and actually is a big contribution to my life purpose.
The challenge has been working in partnership with others who are fundamental to the project’s evolution and delivery. There has been a lot focus on what’s missing, what people don’t like, what isn’t known, what they think I should be doing and sadly lots of conversation about me rather than with me.
It’s a really tough one isn’t it? What do we do when our projects go down the road of fear and impossibility? How can we shift the perspective to be one of possibility, positivity and creativity?
It takes one person to focus on what IS possible, what IS happening, what IS available, what IS wanted…what IS the truth…what IS…what IS…what IS.
So with my project, the truth is I want to create a project where the attitude is that we are FOR each other, we support each with what we don’t know and we pull together to work out a plan that works for all. I want a team that is enthusiastic, encouraging, open, honest, creative…a team that focuses on possibility rather than fear of what may not work.
For me, this is what is going to create a successful project – the will, the FOR each otherness, the positive energy, the ‘can-do’ approach where we support each other through it all – including the challenges, tough decisions, wins, losses and tears!
And I’m guessing it’s going to challenge for me to stand up for my vision and be in my personal authority about what I do want – whilst keeping open to possibility myself. Because the truth is there is a lot I don’t know, others may know a better way and they will for sure have lots of ideas that will bring more and more to the ultimate creation and delivery.
So here are some key steps to move from fear to fearless:
- Share your feedback (your experience) and ask for what you DO want, 100% from the heart
- Ask yourself how can I model focusing on what IS rather than what ISN’T?
- Review where you are, is it the ideal time to get into planning or would some team connection/building be beneficial first?
- Re-group, re-align, re-engage others into your vision of what IS, what you what to create, what the impact on the world will be.
Go for it!!! You will BE the change you want to see…
