Liberation (Delight in Your Presence)

To be special in this world,
to be uniquely who you are,
is rhythmic freedom and flow.

In the safety of friendship,
in the simplest form of love,
I like all of you I know.

In your presence I delight,
an engaging sequence of creation.
With distinctiveness in full right,
we share authentic liberation.

−J. Brunson

Leadership Poem 4 – From Judie’s Story and the privilege of my own relational experience


The Building of Confidence – Judie’s Story

Judie’s Confidence Cycle is: Interaction -to- The Business of Planning -to- Deeper Evolution of the Friendship.

One day I proposed that her confidence cycle was the very model on which she had built her well-established, successful practice. Judie was more than intrigued. She became delightfully enthralled.

Her business model is the requisite blend of strengths when Judie is at her best. This circle of friendship business model is so a part of who Judie is as a person. Being able to finally put this model on paper allowed her to focus even more intently on those she has come to love. “It’s all about the client. It’s about protecting them,” says Judie.

She indeed protects those she loves by being sure that what makes them who they are is off-limits to attack. Talk about anything you wish, but don’t mess with those specific, unique attributes that make a person so darn special in this world. Judie loves her clients differently; and equally. If you are in the circle of friendship, you are in a safe, wonderful orbit.

Judie told me her business model freed her (gave her permission) to say, “This is what I do. This is who I am.” While this confidence cycle is natural for Judie, she is now conscious of it in a way that leads her to focus. She confidently says ‘no’ to things that do not fit; that may distract her from doing what she loves for those she is free to love.

On her way to delivering her brand of love, she grounds the relationship in how much she simply likes you and delights being in your presence.
