J1:Session 1

Coach GuideJ1:Session 1

Purpose/Objective

To set the direction and Biblical content for the entire journey. To illustrate many of us know how to be rescued from death yet not adjusted to life, creating the space to introduce the 4 Imperatives of the Clarity Spiral.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: God has been having a dream about your life from the beginning of time. That dream is both knowable and nameable.

  • Tell the Chilean miner story.
  • Highlight CNN headline: “Do the miners need a second rescue?”.  Even though they were rescued from death, what they were having difficulty with was actually adjusting into life.
  • APPLICATION: Many of us have experienced rescue from death, but we’ve not adjusted to learning to live in the full freedom of Jesus and the good works He’s set aside for us to walk in.

Purpose/Objective

Courage to Know comes from an honest look in the mirror as well as an awareness of the two common distractions we face. Demonstrate that the Younique journey is both a discovery of self and a discovery of God, and a surrendering of more of ourselves to more of who we discover God is.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: If you don’t know who God has called you to be, then you will settle for whatever people pay you to be.

APPLICATION: the Ultimate Awareness Matrix is helping participants get a sense of “Courage to Know” for the Clarity Spiral. “You can only give as much as you know about yourself to as much as you know about God”. – Peter Barnes.

  • Build out the Ultimate Awareness matrix, one quadrant at a time, using examples to explain each quadrant.
  • Have participants identify which quadrant they usually tip towards.
  • How did they get there? What forces might have been at work?

Purpose/Objective

Emphasize that every experience in life, good and bad, are opportunities to grow as we evaluate and learn from them. Illustrate the different crises/ opportunity points of human life, and how each crisis point represents a possible breakthrough in personal clarity and impact for their lives.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “Experience is not the best teacher; evaluated experience is.” – Howard Hendricks APPLICATION: these different lines are helping them understand the “Experience to Grow” aspect of the Clarity Spiral.

  • Sociologists have identified three crises points, known as the quarter life, mid-life and 3⁄4 life crises for average life expectancy.
  • The myth is your impact line coincides with your bio line.
  • Your body is on the diffusion curve after 40, but your impact line can exponentially increase, as you choose to grow from life experiences, meaning you could have the most impact in the last quarter.

Purpose/Objective

Invite them to take ownership of the design of their own life as it happens day to day. Help participants recognize where they are stuck in their vocational progress and begin to hint toward a way towards vocational value and vitality. Encourage them that this process can help them get to at least 10% more convergence to their calling within their current context.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: What next step can I take to move closer to both vitality and value?

APPLICATION: the Value/Vitality map is helping them understand the “Value to Show” aspect of the Clarity Spiral. Bottom line: Most of us live in the tension between the vitality/life we receive and the value it brings to others/the world. We want both but often have one more than the other.

  • Slowly build out Vitality and Value matrix, one zone at a time, using the definitions on the top of the tool. 
  • Add the 1-9 positioning system to the tool.
  • Have the participants determine which circle best identifies where they are at now.
  • Have participants think about how they got to where they are at now, using the positioning system.
  • Have participants think through what their next step on their way towards 9 might look like.
  • Use examples from the Participant Guide to illustrate the movement in circles.

Purpose/Objective

Call participants to radical pursuit of the ONE THING they must do with their life.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: The biggest danger of our lives is to spend our lives doing everything we can do and missing out on the ONE THING we must do in ALL the areas of our life, not just in one particular area.

APPLICATION: the Funnel Story is helping them understand the “Risk to Go” aspect of the Clarity Spiral.

  • Tell the story of Professor Howard Hendricks and his compelling challenge to his students about his biggest fear for their lives.
  • Emphasize this quote: “Most opportunities are distractions in disguise.” – Howard Hendricks
  • Drive home the question: What must you do?
