This resource was created to help any of you who are at a spot in life where you find yourself asking some of life's biggest questions. Questions like, "Who am I?", "What am I doing with my life?, or "What is my purpose?" After a catalytic turning-point in my own life, I found myself asking those same questions, and eventually landed on, "What is my Calling?"
My hope is that you can take advantage of this digital retreat that is meant to provide an immersive experience, helping you to create the space & provide the tools needed for you to explore who you actually are. To do this, I will leverage the Clarity in Calling Process that I have compiled & been using for the past 4 years to help hundreds of others become more self-aware & find greater direction in life!
This course is structured in such a way, that you will be able to watch these video segments as I guide my friends Jon & Amy through the process. In doing so, you will have the examples you need from us, to jump in and start your own personal exploration. After each video segment you will have a reflective activity to be completed using the Retreat Journal PDF provided for you in the Introduction Module. Once you are completed with your reflective activity, you can move on to the next video segment.
At the end of the course, you will have everything you need to begin better owning, communicating & living out your calling!
Module 1 introduces you to Jon & Amy & gives you a pre-assessment activity that can help you better determine where you are coming to this conversation from.
Module 2 gets you started on looking back over your life & identifying the positive turning points or mountain top moments that made you feel most alive.
Module 3.1 introduces you to the powerful work of Viktor Frankl, who wrote the book "Man's Search for Meaning."
Module 3.2 encourages you to redeem your low valley moments, and identify how they have shaped you & helped you create boundaries for living, as you move forward.
Module 4 helps you to zoom out, and gain greater perspective of your life up to this point, and guides you towards pulling out some themes that can be very helpful as we begin honing in on our calling moving forward!
Module 6 introduces you to the concept so powerfully taught by Bill Hybels, when he said, "Everyone wins, when you grow in self awareness."
Module 7 provides you with the structure you need to get the most out of your Myers-Briggs Personality Test, as well as your Gallup Strengths Finder Results.
Module 8 introduces the concept of ownership, which is something that many in our culture are lacking, especially when it comes to our TRUE strengths & weaknesses.
Module 9 has been a real game changer for many of the folks who I've taken through this process over the years. I hope that it will be the same for you, as you once again, zoom out, then zoom back in and identify the need in the world that you are best suited to meet!
Module 10 was created to help you give comparison a second glance. Comparison can be a really harmful road to go down, but if done right, it can lead to better things up ahead for each of us!
Module 11 is meant to empower you to better communicate, what it is that you want out of this life! There is real power in writing down what you want to be true 10, 20 even 30 years from now, because it begins to influence the way you live today!
Module 12 will take what you want to be true way off in the future, and will help you begin to do the next right things today in the roles that you play!
Module 13 really embraces the adage, that we are better together than we are on our own. Don't head down this road in isolation, but rather surround yourself with people who really do want you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.
Thank you so much for diving in on this journey with me! Share what you've learned with others & be a catalyst in their life, helping them to begin operating more out of their sweet spots!
