five steps to identify your point of view – the short course

I’ve been blogging a lot about point of view (which is helping me sort out my own point of view on it) and I thought it might be nice to take all of it and boil it down a bit into some simple steps on how you can really focus your own point of view.

STEP #1: Think of your deepest wounds and clarify what they are. You need a sandbox to play in – not just ‘life’ and ‘helping people who are stressed.’ What’s the journey you know most intimately? You can read more about this here.

STEP #2: Refine your point of view on that particular journey to you’ve undergone heal your wounds. What have you learned? To help you delve deeper here consider answering these questions about your story and these questions about your point of view.

STEP #3: Ask yourself where people who have undergone the same journey and who share your point of view are already congregated. Identify your hubs.

STEP #4: craft offerings that can help people on their journey (which has also been your journey) and that are aligned with, embody and express your truest point of view.

STEP #5: share your offerings through the hubs you’ve identified.

About Tad

  • Hey Tad,

    Sounds like the beginning of a POV Manifesto.

    I agree strongly that it starts with where we have suffered and survived and become a better, stronger, happier person for the  journey. Most of us want to sweep that story under the rug and have people know us as the successful one … only telling them the happy ending of the story. And it is in the suffering that we find our Tribe.

    What is a challenge/problem/issue/conundrum that I have been through and that I know others are going through and I can help by virtue of my own first hand experience. How does the way I understand it, and the language I use to describe my experience connect uniquely with others?

    My two cents,

    Dike
