Spark Notes: Is purpose a cross-pollination of ideas?

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

The first time I had a spark experience in strategy and planning was with a cross-pollination strategy experience.  The brilliance of this strategy is that the strategy was multi-faceted.  There was a leading driver for the strategy but there were legs that supported it.

The Cross Pollination #key2success strengthens by creating multi-faceted thinking, innovation and solutions.

 

What does cross-pollination have to do with purpose?

I came into a deeper understanding of the Key of Cross Pollination on my path to purpose.  While engaging in my knowledge-based purpose diet, I read Choose Yourself by James Altucher.  In the book, he talks about building your idea and innovation muscle through the idea machine.  As a daily practice he suggests reading from different texts and jotting down ideas to practice with our awareness that we build value through the unique solutions we provide.

What would happen if we cross-pollinate the path to purpose with the idea machine?  Perhaps our path to purpose requires a combination of different ideas about purpose.  Perhaps our path to purpose is as unique as the person.   Perhaps the more we cross pollinate great ideas about purpose, the more we serve ourselves by activating our idea machine to generate our purpose solution.  Perhaps this is why the voracious appetite for knowledge is required on the path to purpose.

The first person you serve with your purpose is YOU. You then have an authentic brand and solution to share with others by bringing the full expression of you.

cross pollination of purpose

My experience with the intersection of the Key of Cross Pollination and Purpose are several lenses on the path to purpose (in no order but to spell out the word purpose):

  • Passion – What am I passionate about? What will I take a stand for?
  • Uniqueness – What is my source of unconventional quirkiness?  If I were in a room filled with like-minded people, how would I stand out?
  • Resonance – What does it feel in my body and spirit when I am on the path to purpose?
  • Promises – What are the promises about purpose from my faith tradition?
  • Oxygen – What am I doing or being that brings life, source and energy to my life?
  • Spark – What sparks me? What makes me come alive? What are my life defibrillators?
  • Experiences – What do I uncover when I review my life experiences from the lens of purpose?

Juicy questions, right?  I am jazzed just thinking about my experiences with these lenses.  It was and continues to be amazing.

This week we will unpack each element of the Cross Pollination of Purpose! I developed the Unlock! Me Review as a free offering to unlock our thinking and the stories we tell about ourselves and life.  Sometimes when we answer questions from the same frame of reference, we get the same answers.  The Unlock! Me Review will is my gift to bring insight, knowledge and purpose through 3 simple steps.

Spark Notes: What is your purpose diet?

What is your purpose diet? How are you feeding your purpose?  How are you taking care of the body that will execute your purpose?

While developing my goals for 2018, I developed some health goals. So here I am again with health goals that I struggle to keep.

I develop goals with a why because the why is what keeps my commitment going especially when I am faced with obstacles.  

Something in me shifted when my why changed to “because I have to take good care of the body that will execute my purpose.” Yes! That why lit me up and I knew I was embarking on a new threshold of commitment.

In my video, EP 3: Purpose Told Through the Life of the Butterfly, I discuss how the ravenous appetite of the caterpillar phase in the transformation of the butterfly.  During our path to purpose, we experience phases when we are devouring information as it relates to our purpose.  Our growth is phenomenal because we are in flow with our design, our blueprint.  The growth I am referring to is our growth of insight, knowledge and purpose.

I am awakening to the truth that purpose diet is also literally how we feed our body, the vessel that is going to do something with all of the insight, knowledge and purpose.  I realized that if I do not take care of my vessel, I will not be able to sustain all the wonderful action I am taking and will take in the future.

How do you know your purpose diet?

We know our purpose diet by checking in to our body.  We know our knowledge and experience based purpose diet by what is feeding our curiosity and passion. We also know our knowledge and experience based purpose diet by what comes in response to our sincere asks.

Our body will tell us what is good for us by how it reacts.  One of my children has a lot of food allergies and her specialist recommended keeping a food diary so that we could isolate what is no longer working for her body.  You also know your physical purpose diet by how your body responds to foods (lag data or response data) and also what information you are amassing about health that sparks you on your path to purpose (lead data or new data you are amassing to leverage).  There are also miraculous downloads that are responses to your sincere asks.

Before I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease or dis ease, I offered the sincere ask to cure these strange happenings in my body or give me the knowledge of what was going that many specialists could not figure out.  Within days I awakened in the middle of the night to a PBS special that outlined my symptoms with natural dietary cures!

Knowing the divine nature of the cures that were best for my body did not completely deter my behaviors!  I had a stop and start pattern with making changes that were good for my health.  I am continuing to unlock my emotional attachment to food and eating patterns that are unhealthy for my body.

In 2018 I am beginning an intentional, full-bodied approach to feeding my purpose.  My body has informed that it loves a green food diet with a lot of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory foods and herbs and no coffee.  On this leg of my path to purpose, my knowledge based purpose diet is focused on connecting, building communities and purpose enrollment.

What is your purpose diet? I’d love to know.  Once you share it, you will gain a community of accountability partners and supporters.

Spark Notes: Despise Not Small Beginnings

In the final stage of star formation, before the star illuminates, a trade wind of dual forces causes an eruption from its core , which also blasts away any remaining gas and dust.

The Perception Key to Success reminds us that things are rarely how they first appear.  The Purpose Key to Success anchors our life experiences in the truth that everything has purpose, often multiple purposes, that we uncover over time.

Trade winds are dual force winds that propel what is in its center.  Airplanes take off in trade winds.  Can you recall being in the pressure of two directions that cause you to leap, to fly into action that defies logic?

It is interesting that the trade winds of star formation cause an eruption from its core.  What if life causes trade winds that cause our purpose to erupt from our core?  What if the trade wind disruptions are on assignment to birth purpose in our lives?

What if, like the star, we get a dual gift of blasting away any remnants of old parts of ourselves that like the gas and dust of a forming star, were once integral to our development and now dull our shine and ultimate purpose?

The end of the star formation concludes a process that began millions of years ago!  Whatever star power brilliance that is being cultivated in us has a due date to illuminate.  Know you possess the components of your brilliance and trust your process to illuminate.

Spark Notes: Heat attracts, activates and produces

In star formation, the final stage before the its illumination, heat intensifies and it attracts what is needed to progress, the heat activates the next stage of creation where something new is produced.

The Keys to Success of Trusting In the Process, Faith & Relationships are key to complete massive vision and impact.  It is the heat, in the most challenging of times that attracts some of our most deeply held keys to success and serves as a magnet for resources to find and connect with us.

I’ve heard many people teach don’t give up before the miracle.  The heat of our challenges intensifies just before we call uncle and give up.  Viewing intensifying heat as a part of the last leg of our transformative process may lend just enough space to breathe and finish the process.

Spark Notes: Transformation Requires Taking In New Material

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

SparkNotes_Dec21

In star formation, after transforming shape through movement, the movement quickens and the new form takes in new material that forms a hot center core.

The Key of Transformation requires inclusion of new material.  New material could be new people, places, things, new thoughts or renewal of existing thoughts, insight and knowledge.

This part of the transformation of the star really sparks me.  It sparks me because it extends the inclusiveness of the greater team.  When the star form moves from changing shape to blending into a new form, it reaches outward to become more.  This is akin to purpose, we may hold a vision individually but when it comes to the vision taking form, it requires a greater team.

Another thing that sparks me is the heat.  The heat in the star formation is so intense that it melts and molds into a new center core.  It is from this center core that the star will shine and be visible millions of miles away.

It is in the heat of life that we may feel the most lost and yet be experiencing the most impactful moments of our lives! We do not know who is watching us journey in life.  Like the star that is destined to shine millions of miles away–one day, we do not fully know the light legacy we are leaving.

 

Consider if the journey is as important as our purpose.  Consider that our ability to avail ourselves to our process and lend ourselves as part of the greater team in the purpose or vision of another is some of our most purposeful work.  The star could not complete its process without taking in  new material to build its core.
