EP 6: 2019 The #Sparked Life: Keys To Success

The #Sparked Life Podcast
The @Sparked Life Podcast with Dena Wiggins

Hey Purpose Peeps,
Welcome to 2019! The transition from 2018 to 2019 was beautifully reflective for me. I was led to share a couple of key insights that may have a broader appeal. I call these key insights #keys2success because it requires me to be intentional about the application to get the desired result–success which I define as results that matter!
In this episode learn how:

  1. Seemingly unrelated stuff, the life stuff, comes together to weave a purposeful story
  2. The significance of Kairos messages and what they require from us
  3. Four #keys2success that I was nudged to share
  4. A keep it super simple (KISS) technique to unlock more about words that spark us
  5. Why it’s ok to take our time with setting our theme word or intention for the year
  6. Our first The Sparked Life affirmation for 2019

Purpose Peeps, I’m excited about 2019. I am thrilled to be even more intentional this year and being guided through a process to integrate my downloads and nudges. This is what happens when co-creation is in your DNA and a strategic decision for my business.
Let’s learn and grow together in 2019 livin’ The Sparked Life!
Dena,
Your Partner in Purpose & Resultant

EP 4: Have You Evah? The #Sparked Life

The #Sparked Life Podcast
The #Sparked Life Podcast with Dena Wiggins

Hey Purpose Peeps!

In this podcast we explore, “Have you evah?” No, I did not miss a spell check! This is, “have you ever” with an attitude.

Purpose Peeps, have you evah:

  • Had some life events or situations that knocked the wind out of you? AND, you did not share about your experience because you’re supposed to be be further along and the event “should not” rock you to your core?
  • Had some life events that took you back to your existing or survival toolkit?
  • Had some life events that appeared like the thing you thought you conquered or the test you already “passed?”

If you answered yes to any or all of the have you evahs, guess what, you are a Purpose Peep living The #Sparked Life with the OPPORTUNITY to have a different relationship with life and as a result, different outcomes! Listen and consider three perspectives to shift the dynamic of have you evah to building your #Sparked Life muscles!

The Have You Evah 3P Shifters:

  1. Prioritization shifts your relationship to the event. What is the placement of this event in your life RIGHT now? What is in your CURRENT toolkit? Do you see the path the event cleared to take you to a new resource in your toolkit?
  2. Purpose shifts the event from something against you to something for you even if it comes in a challenging package? What is the purpose of the event as it relates to your spark?
  3. Past connections can sometimes make the events seem bigger and larger than what they really are! You are not the same Purpose Peep as when you last experienced something like this.

…And of course there is some juicy homework to leverage what we unlock about YOUR #Sparked Life! This time we unlock three activities to:

  1. Match your perspective with where you are on the purpose path,
  2. Unlock your responses to life events, and
  3. Envision your outcomes and Align with your required Responses!

Purpose Peeps, as Resultants, you know we have homework related to our discussion! We also are incorporating a new affirmation at the end of this episode. Powerful stuff! As always, email me at info@denawiggins.com, explore more in the #SparkNotes blog on http://www.denawiggins.com and share your experience with other Purpose Peeps on our FB page @denaforyourpurpose.

Are you ready?

Let’s go!

Spark Notes: The Spark of Purpose – What makes you come alive?

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

The Spark Lens of Purpose

cross pollination of purpose

As a card-carrying member of the Rah-Rah Club of Motivation, being sparked really jazzes me!  And yet sparked moments are more than snapshots of clarity, an aha or a time when we connect with our code of genius–if we recognize and leverage them.

What sparks you?

When you connect with a core truth it literally sparks you.  Have you ever had an inspired thought that when it landed, you exclaimed, “that’s it” and that’s it turned into a flood a flow of creative ideas?  Yes? You were sparked.

When we explore purpose through the lens of spark, spark is a verb that means ignite. And when we spark, we emit sparks that ignite others.  Remember from the Lens of Oxygen, purpose produces.

If spark is a verb, then it is in action.  As you consume your purpose diet of knowledge and practice, you will be sparked.  When you are actively engaged in purpose activities and service, you will be sparked.   When you are in close proximity to something vital to your purpose, you will be sparked. What is important about sparks is that they always lead to more.

Previously, we discussed the star formation as it relates to purpose.  The star whose origin was dust, took millions of years to spark so that we can see its brilliance.  But the story of the star did not end at brilliance! The star could provide direction or is part of a system or cluster of stars that tells a bigger story.  This is how purpose unfolds.  This is how your sparked experiences unfold.

In my book Divine Spark, I discuss spark moments leveraging the story of Mary and Elizabeth from the Holy Bible. The purposes that Mary and Elizabeth would bring into the world were so great that when they came in close proximity to one another without knowing of their miraculous pregnancies, they sparked and caused the babies in their wombs to leap!

Another aspect of sparked relationships comes from one of my favorite scriptures, Proverbs 27:17, “Just like iron forms iron, man forms man.”  Iron sharpens iron and causes sparks and friction when it happens.

Some spark relationships cause friction and the purpose of the friction is to spark something anew that sharpens the insight, knowledge and understanding in one another.

What makes you come alive?

Have you ever felt that you were living but you were not alive? Have you noticed people around you that are so busy with life and are in movement and yet when you look into their eyes, they are dull? Perhaps I recognize it because I’ve lived through this version of existing.  My life began to change when I declared, “enough with this existing, there has to be more.”  Quickly followed by some sincere asks and quieting to really hear and receive responses.

come alive 2

What are your life defibrillators?

Note what it feels like in your body when you are sparked.  My eyes widen.  My pulse races.  I actually feel a shock in my heart space.  This experience made me realize this aspect of purpose is like a life defibrillator.

Defibrillators shock the heart back into its rhythm.  Sometimes life and our responses to life events cause our hearts to function but not optimally.  Metaphorically, we can have a heart dis ease that forms from disagreeing with an inauthentic aspect of our life.  Purpose sparks and shocks our heart to begin to beat again with our natural rhythm.  That rhythm becomes our authenticity litmus test.

Being sparked may be exciting or it may be disruptive depending on what is rubbing against our life to cause us to spark.  Trust that being sparked is for you, whether it is easily understood or requires some sincere asks and contemplation for it to begin to unfold with meaning you can respond to.

Spark Notes: Questioning Unlocks Purpose

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

Asking really big questions is a master key to unlocking purpose.  Yes, it’s true.  Now the big deal is who is answering.

One of my big ahas on my path to purpose is that purpose is a journey and not a destination .  If you read the book The Alchemist, the hero’s journey is the purpose journey to personal legend.  It takes a personal journey to arrive at purpose that we all hold and yet require life experiences to shift, to see and recognize it.

It was Santiago’s dreams under the sycamore tree that unlocked purpose.  His recurring dream left questions.  Questions unlock purpose.  The path to purpose requires curiosity and willingness to move in inspired action and have purposeful experiences.

In the story, one of the first questions that unlocked Santiago’s journey was from the daughter of the merchant, “why are you a shepherd when you can read?”  It is feeding  curiosity that serves people on the path to purpose.  It is a good question that sparks.

If the merchant’s daughter told Santiago, “you should discover what you can do with the thinking you’ve amassed,” or “why don’t you get a different job, shepherding is not for you?”  It could have been a completely different result and experience for Santiago.

One way that life taught me this truth was my experience during a strategy session.  We hired a great industry consultant to lead the session and yet the session shifted when he began to tell the team strategic answers rather than trusting them to find them.  The interesting thing is that his answers were good.  But it was the team that needed determine its own answers.

Sometimes we have the right answer for someone but the best result is for the person to journey to his or her answer.  The breakthrough may be one good question away.

I left this session questioning, how could this happen? We had the right resource, he was deep in knowledge and well liked by the team. The answer was in the approach.  An extractive approach unleashes the powerful answers because the facilitator trusts the person or team has the answer the question is how to support the path to the answer.

As you explore resources on your path to purpose, look for the ones that meet your big questions with tools and questions that support your inquiry.  They will give you space to have your version of purposeful experiences and determine your next best step.
