CORE Strength: 7 Intelligences

Your brain is the CPU of YOU and there are 7 steps in the processing order for anything we do: create, make memories, build relationships, grieve, explore/learn, make decisions, etc.   We have 7 brain lobes that each of the steps process through:  each of us processes through the 7 steps in the order that your brain is wired.  Learn your brain lobe processing order to bring a quickening, clarity and blessed assurance in all of life's decisions and experiences. Trust yourself. 



CORE Strength: Driving Motivator 


Your Olympic Torch Why is your driving motivator, your primary motivation, your greatest need.  Thus it being of Olympic Torch intensity, importance and influence.  It is why you are motivated to action: either conscious/deliberate action or subconscious/reaction.  It burns you or you fuel it.  Pathway progress, stay focused on vision.  


CORE Strength: Needs


Your needs are the infrastructure and fuel of you.  Without a healthy focus on your needs you can be burdening others with your self-absorbed expectations, thinking others are incapable of caring for themselves, or being "low maintenance" and not caring for yourself.  Each one of us is to mind our own business/not put it on others; mind our own business/let others do for themselves; mind our own business/take excellent care of ourselves.  a mandate. boundary. permission.


CORE Strength: Values


Your values are your plumbline: how you create your life, household environment, business culture, your communities, your priorities, your decisions.  Strengthen your CORE Values muscle and strengthen your decision-making.  Set standards. 


CORE Strength: Strengths


Your strengths are your raw talents, natural gifts:  they are either sitting dormant within your core or they are strong through education and experience.  They are not necessarily your skills, credentials or reputation:  they can be but not always so.  We will make these distinctions and uncover your true strengths ~ the ones that refresh and fulfill you when you engage them in service for others. Fun. 


CORE Strength: Voice


Your voice is many things:  what you think, what you say to yourself, how you say it in tone, your expression of yourself in words, action, fashion, spouse, webcopy, relationships, etc.  It is a powerful force in your life:  it creates life or death:  learn your true voice so you can choose to speak and create life in all arenas of your life and work.  

CORE Strength: Mission


Your mission is your calling, what most people think of as purpose.  It is the impact you want to have with your actions.  The difference you make by doing.  By using your CORE.  It is most closely tied with your Olympic Torch Why(tm) your driving motivation.  What you need most, you give to the world; solving our most urgent, ordinary and significant problems. 





CORE Strength: I AM Stamp + Purpose


Your I AM Stamp is your unique brand as a person, as a leader.  It holds together the many CORE muscles that are you (above).  It is a powerful and multifaceted icon, image, symbol to remember and express who you are.  From this place your purpose emerges.  What is the unique presence that emanates from your brand?  What difference do you make by your presence alone?  Purpose is the impact of your existence, your being, your presence.  It is with you wherever you go and makes an impact long before you DO anything.  It is why you exist.  It is your unique leadership presence, your primary influencer, your most significant power, Know your value.
