“Beth raised my clarity to such degree I don’t need her to see who I am anymore. It’s completely clear to me what I am doing on this planet at this time, where to take it, and how to get there. The time and money I invested with her were a real bargain for me and my organization and has saved me years of wasted time and thousands of dollars wasted on wrong directions.”
OK –I wrote that! I love how I turned around my jealousy of a friend and colleague’s great endorsements I saw on her website. Don’t you love how I did that? Do you want to learn to do that? Raising Clarity can teach you!
Like everyone else, I get those yucky personal feelings like jealousy. Unlike many people, I’ve stopped burying them. In this exercise, I used them to get me clear on what they were doing inside me. Why on Earth was I jealous of my good friend’s personal success? And how could I create what she had received? THAT was the important question. This is the probing we do to raise clarity from the muck. This is why the lotus growing atop the murky pond is such a powerful metaphor for us.
There’s a reason envy is considered a deadly sin: it’s bad for your health! It’s also bad for your organizational health. It keeps you in competition mode rather than celebration-of-everyone’s-gifts-and-freely-sharing-them mode. That doesn’t mean you can suddenly stop being envious, and it doesn’t mean you should bury it. I have years of experience consulting to real-life organizations and coaching real-life people who all experience difficult situations and emotions. You think your deadly sins are so deadly? Try me! The result might just be big – your newest, highest level of self-development and organizational amazingness – and usefully small as well, like my revelation with which I started this post.
