4 Keys to Aligning Yourself with the Change You are Leading

ENERGY: Drives your experience of Legacy

Ask yourself:

  • How much of life do you let fuel you, including death?
  • Where do you stop? What do you fear?

PURPOSE: Drives your experience of Fulfillment

Ask yourself:

  • How engaged can you be with people, places & priorities?
  • Where do you stay separate?

INSPIRATION: Drives your experience of Authenticity

Ask yourself:

  • How open can you be to everything trying to help you?
  • What do you judge and why?

CONTRIBUTION: Drives your experience of Fun

Ask yourself:

  • Are you enjoying the game of it all?
  • Even if you’re doing serious work, are you feeling alive?

Breathe! Which questions felt great? Crappy? What did you become aware of?

While there are infinite strategies to each area, you can expand your impact by expanding all of them from the inside. To do that, you need to know HOW to assess them from the inside. As successful as you are, what could you do with calmer confidence as you brave the unknown? Do new things? Make hard changes?

I come at this from two starting points when I work with changemakers. First, know your Global Contribution. It’s deeper than purpose, it creates your energy, it opens you to inspiration, and it generates your contribution without quitting and without fail. You cannot fail at being your Global Contribution, you can only fail to discover it and harness it.

Second, Wake Up Epic. You may have a morning practice, morning ritual, miracle list of things to do to manage your mindset, but tomorrow’s leaders need something utterly different: DEEP EMBODIMENT. I will post 11 videos below that you can use to WAKE UP EPIC.

These four elements of Energy, Purpose, Inspiration and Contribution are integral if you want to impact your epic life and business because they directly impact your Legacy, Fulfillment, Authenticity & Sense of Fun. Are you having enough FUN?

Do you want to be the wolf you’re born to be? I’ve discovered it the hard way and through very deep work in myself, with individual clients, non-profit teams, and visionary groups. You’ve GOT to move, but HOW? What if you don’t do it right for you?

Close down a little there, you get blocks & blindspots. Open up a little here, the result is more ease & synergy.

Truth!? How’s your energy? Purpose? Inspiration? Contribution?

Would you like to nurture your every-changing ability to embody and evolve all that, and get clarity on how to tie it all together to impact your epic life, business, body or marriage?

Why not take advantage of these four key areas? They are irreducible, soul-level, foundational dynamics you can weave together to drive your bigger game dynamically. Knowing your capacity with each one can make such a difference. One client said this recently:

Thanks for all you have given me and my crew — a shared experience, a common touchstone, and words to understand and see our own underground ‘engines’.

To explore from the body and movement side of things, here are three
Epics of the Day to play with:

I hope that helps! There are a few more Wake Up Epic free vids here.


Do you want to go deeper into your commitment to you?

If you’re ready to commit to yourself a little more, a good place to start is the WAKE UP EPIC 28-day challenge.

This low-cost, high-impact adventure gives you 28 days of 10-minute movement practices for your body, business & soul.

Thanks for being EPIC!
