It is about knowing the meaning of life. Your life.
The Purpose of Life is to learn and grow. The Meaning of life is to help people.
Through developing your philosophy of life, you develop your unique approach to your modality.
Most practitioners tend to lead their business with their modality. Which won’t connect people to your business.
Clients don’t care about what products you use, the technique you are using, they are only interested in the outcome you help them achieve.
So, bear this in mind, when designing your philosophy. We are not asking you to write your biography or worst still your resume.
We are asking about your journey through life and how you arrived at this place.
To be an expert in your field of excellence didn’t come easy. So how did you get here?
What have you learned along the way?
Why do you think the way you do?
What is in your heart?
How did you get so passionate about this?
How did you turn your passion into your purpose?
How do you recommend we get to flow with ease through this life?
Keep it simple, but tell your story. Keep it simple and stay focused on what your Avatar needs to know to get a great result.
Avoid distractions that might be part of your story but don’t help getting your philosophy across.
Even if you follow a system or process in your modality, that could be hundreds if not thousands of years old, you still have put your own ingredients into your mixing bowl of life and have created a unique cake that is yours to own.
Customers don’t care what modality you are or what qualifications you have, they care about what results you can create for them in their life. So, what have you been through that makes you undeniably qualified to help them?
Think of a mixing bowl, put all your ingredients in to the mixing bowl and mix it all together. Then bake your cake, decorate your cake. That is your unique cake. Nobody else has your recipe, ingredients, or style.
That is your philosophy.
Only you have that cake, that philosophy.
Who are you? What do you stand for?
At the Becoming the Expert program, we take your philosophy and turn it into the template and design for your book, around your thought leadership and ensure you walk away with all your chapter headings and sub headings and so on. But for now, we need you to have a think about what you stand for? Write your philosophy, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Do a rough draft, you can edit and play with it later.
What generally comes up for practitioners, is that they don’t feel worthy or they don’t feel good enough to have a philosophy. But I promise you, you do. Whether you are aware of it or not. We just want you to start to be aware of your philosophy.
So, get started.
Be loving and gentle with yourself while you witness your purpose manifesting into a manifesto. Allow it to come out of who you are. Allow it to come out of your soul, where it has been sitting quietly, waiting for you to notice it so it can bring meaning into your life and put your soul service into action.
The original meaning of the word philosophy comes from the Greek roots philo- meaning "love" and -sophos, or "wisdom." The Love of Wisdom.
When someone studies philosophy they want to understand how and why people do certain things and how to live a good life. In other words, they want to know the meaning of life.
Here at Becoming the Expert we help our clients to uncover what is unique about them and their business.
Millions of people have learnt massage, meditation, yoga, health and other wellness disciplines.
Now put all your training and study into a mixing bowl and bake your own philosophy.
What do you stand for?
What’s different about what you do?
What do you want to change about your industry?
What story do you bring into the collective?
What do you want to say?
All the answers to those questions join together as your philosophy.
Which turns into your book, your programs and your offerings.
Get a first draft together for now and we can word smith it later and polish it up like a diamond further down the track. Just get started for now. No more hiding, it is your time for your SOUL to shine.
