Your greatest asset is the story of the journey itself.
Suffering equals pain multiplied by resistance.—Shizen Young
...a lot of times in life we have to take a couple of steps back before we can then take steps forward.


1) Where are you at in your Hero’s Journey?

  • Have you heard the call to adventure? Have you refused it?
  • Have you crossed over the threshold?
  • Have your mentor and friends shown up?
  • Are you going through trials and tribulations? Are you at your destiny decision?
  • Are you coming back now? Are you giving the Elixir to others (teaching others what you know, so that they can get the benefit of your Hero's Journey)?

2) What truth are you starting to doubt?

  • What was it that you held to be rock solid, but you’re not so sure anymore?
  • Where are your values changing?
  • Where are they not compatible with your old way of life? Where can you just not live this way anymore?
  • Where are you experiencing your own transformational dilemma (where you can see the opportunity, but you don't want to let go because of your “security blanket”)?
