ITS YOUR CALL:  4 BREAKTHROUGH PRACTICES FOR FINDING YOUR ONE THING IN LIFE
(Will Mancini, based upon his book “Younique”)
 
•    Pushes for knowing and naming your specific calling and assignment.  We exist to honor God and help others by: ________ (2 words).  His detailed model and process in the book drives to this.
•    Four imperatives:
 
Courage to know yourself (understanding why we do what we do)
Barriers:
•    Expectations of others:  what others want me to be.
•    Imitation of success:  be like my hero.
•    Captivation of money:  what others pay me to be.
•    Preoccupation of life:  what the times make me be.  (don’t slow down and reflect)
Projection of self:  what do I need to add to the Jesus within me.
 
Experience to grow:
Evaluated experience is useful
•    Ask the right people the right questions.
•    What am I great at?
•    Good experiences tell us about our strengths.
•    Bad experiences tell us about our convictions.
•    Breakthrough or breakdown experiences.
 
Value to show:
Change your role description by 10% each year to show value
3 reference points in showing more value
•    Must support the mission/vision of organization
•    Help your boss solve problems and make them look good
•    How will you add new value
 
Risk to go:
    Fear of leaving a good place may lead to success at the wrong thing.
    Ships are safe in the harbor, but that is not what ships are made for.
    Fear may never go away, but increasing your courage can be greater than your fear, allowing you to move.
