What Do You Need?

It’s probably one of the most important questions you can ever be asked.

And your answer, honestly, communicates more about your state of being, than anything else.

The unfortunate reality is most of us don’t have the slightest clue as to the answer.

Most of the time, simply being asked this question throws us in to some kind of a unexpected tail spin, where we’re scrambling to get out of having to answer at all.

I mean it’s awkward, if you think about it, having someone intently look in your eyes and sincerely ask you what you need. That sort of thing just doesn’t happen much.

The other day I was told a Production Manager was needed to come help rescue an event that had suddenly ballooned into a much larger, more exquisite experience. Naturally I was overjoyed, because I love creating awesome experiences!

And that’s what Creating the Awesome is all about.

Asking you what you need, and helping you get it. And if you don’t happen to know the answer, then even better, I’d love to help you get there.

So as I sit here in beautiful Marrakech, Morocco, I’m asking you that same question.

What do you need?

Yeah, that, what was that? That thing that just popped in your head?

Jot it down, email it to me, write it in the comments below.

Nothing is too silly, or too outrageous an answer.

Besides, what do you have to lose?

Nothing gives me more joy than knowing your stories, and knowing how I can help!

The really cool thing, I mean the coolest thing ever, is I actually respond! Not some virtual executive assistant, or some back door automated response.

Me!

Personally!

So give it a shot, let me know what you need. I bet you’ll be surprised at just how much I can help!

    I think you and I might have a lot in common. This is the first time I have found your blog, but I like what I see!

    I am a connector. Locally, I know a lot of people and people who need something have begun to ask me to help them connect to what/who they need. This is my passion and it inspires me.

    The trouble is, I spend so much time helping people with what they need, I seldom get asked this question! Thank you for indulging me.

    I am a motivator. I have a story to tell… I have been telling others’ stories for 2.5 years and I have put mine on the back burner. It’s time to tell my story, and help others, as you are find their awesome and create a better life than they one in which they have found themselves.

    Thank you for indulging me, What do I need? I need to find other people who have an audience who want to listen to a different perspective. People who need guest bloggers. I need places to do, as Jon Acuff calls them, “Reps”. I have done enough speaking to know I am ready. Now it’s time to find the places to share and the people who want to hear a message of hope from an ex-ordinary person who has, in fact claimed her awesome. And feels compelled to inspire others to do the same.

    So, what’dya got?!
