Sweet Spot

Coach GuideBy Master ToolSweet Spot

Purpose/Objective

To give an overview of the three component pieces to helping someone find their sweet spot of calling (Passion, Ability, Context), setting a trajectory for the rest of Journey 1.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “The goal of discipleship is to be like Jesus if he were you – with your family, community, 9 to 5, circumstances, strengths and limitations” – Dallas Willard.

  • Lay out the three components of Passion, Ability and Context, giving examples of each of them.
    – Passion: Fan it – What Fuels Me the Most?
    – Ability: Focus it – What can I do the Best?
    – Context: Find it – Where is my Impact the Greatest?
  • This tool is used to help us discover the one thing we must do and why we do it.
  • Give a quick overview of how they will be walking through each of the three circles throughout Journey 1 and discovering their unique design in the convergence of all 3.

Purpose/Objective

To give an overview of the various components that will contribute to their Passion Circle, allowing them to see the steps they are about to take and how it connects to the whole.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Every passion can be found somewhere, at some point in your story. You don’t randomly get a passion.

  • We will be mining out the participants narrative to help them mine out their passions.
  • Highlight the main question we are asking in Passion Circle: “What Fuels Me the Most?”

Purpose/Objective

Help participants map out the high points and hard times over the course of their life in a visual manner, while beginning the process of breaking down their narrative into chapters.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: If you don’t interpret your story, your past will determine your future. If you DO interpret your story, your past can fuel your future.

  • Give people 7 minutes to write out their list of top 10 high points and hard times on the Hinge Moments worksheet.
  • Once everyone has finished, have them score each hinge moment on a scale of 1 to 10, positive or negative, depending if it’s a high point or hard time. (1 minute)
  • Participants circle the top 10 most defining hinge moments of their life (1 minute).
  • Give participants 4 minutes to map out the top 10 hinge moments on the Life-Line worksheet. (It doesn’t have to be even between hard/high.)
  • Have participants insert three break points into their Life-Line, creating four different chapters in their life with the age range for each chapter. (2 minutes) Later they will name these chapters but for now the age range serves as a chapter title.

Purpose/Objective

To reveal important patterns in a participant’s life by stimulating awareness and connection of significant life events and relationships. To initiate the journey of learning to understand their life story.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: If you don’t interpret your story, your past will determine your future. If you DO interpret your story, your past can fuel your future.

  • Bring the age range over to the Life Discovery Grid, initially serving in each of the top boxes to designate the four different chapters of their life
  • Have participants fill out a draft of the Life Discovery Grid by filling out 2-5 bullet points in each square of the grid (examples, instructions and questions also available in the Participant Guide).
  • Once the grid is complete, participants go back and name each of the chapters in a way that feels significant to each chapter.
  • Give space for people to quietly reflect on God’s hand in their life as they think through the Life Discovery Grid questions. 
  • After they’ve evaluated their 4 chapters, have them guess, “In light of what you’ve seen in your past, what do you think the next chapter of life will look like?”

Participants are able to tell their story succinctly and listen to other participants’ stories for greater clarity in interpreting their own.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: We will practice Three-Way Listening throughout this journey: 1. To the Holy Spirit for counsel and conviction; 2. To one another for encouragement and insight; and 3. To ourselves for awareness and response.

  • Give each participant time to write down 3 insights from each chapter on Page 11 in their Orange Notebook.
  • Explain how the sharing time will work, walking through how people will take notes in their participation guide.
  • Facilitate sharing: Give each person 7-8 minutes to share their story and allow the group 2 minutes to ask questions once they are done sharing.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants see how the core temptations of the enemy are trying to sabotage their narrative, and how the power of the Gospel helps redeem their story.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: A Life Drift is when we tend to multiply our brokenness by medicating our primary issues with secondary issues, instead of going to the cross with our brokenness.

  • Introduce Appetite, Approval and Ambition as the life drifts through Luke 4:1-14.
  • Demonstrate how we often multiply our own brokenness by moving from one to the other.
  • Show how ‘at the cross’ Jesus addresses each of these drifts (Gospel).
  • Highlight that He was led into the desert full of the Holy Spirit and on the other side of temptations is empowered by the Spirit – the same empowerment Christ followers have today.
  • Identify core issues for each of the three A’s and the lie behind each core issue. Reiterate that Satan contextualizes these lies to each person (not everyone hears them the same way).
  • Show, and give examples, of how the three A’s become Celebrity, Consumerism and Competition in American Culture.

Purpose/Objective

In identifying key moments in their life where they multiplied brokenness or took it to the cross, participants will take the first step in seeing more breakthrough in the future (identification of patterns in the past is always step #1).

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Knowing our drift patterns can become transformational. Being a disciple is about recognition and recovery – do we see our brokenness and turn to the cross? Growth happens when the time gap between recognition and recovery decreases.

  • Have participants go back to their life story and identify which Life Drift they struggled with in each chapter, thinking through how they either multiplied brokenness or took it to the cross, writing it down on the ‘My Life Drifts’ worksheet.
  • Have them spend time filling out the Life Drifts Grid: Directly identify the lies they were tempted to believe about God, life and themselves. Then, identify the Gospel truth they now believe, or are learning to believe, in light of each lie (Life Truth).

Purpose/Objective

By sharing and listening to life drifts, we not only step into the opportunity for the healing of some of our wounds, but in the future we learn to apply Gospel truth to situations before we multiply brokenness. In addition, through listening to others, it continues to help us identify drifts that we are not originally able to see for ourselves because of mutual blind spots.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Three-Way Listening opportunity: 1. To the Holy Spirit for counsel and conviction; 2. To one another for encouragement and insight; and 3. To ourselves for awareness and response.

  • Explain how the sharing time will work, walking through how people will take notes in their participation guide.
  • Facilitate sharing: Give each person 5 minutes to share their Primary/Secondary Drifts in each chapter and highlight a dominant lie and subsequent truth in their story.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Passion is conviction that becomes contagious because it withstands the test of pain.

  • Give participants 10 minutes to answer the questions in the funnel, in a brainstorm manner, asking them to think through the things they are interested in, passionate about and burdened by.
  • This is not an exhaustive list but enough that helps them narrow down to 5 words/themes at the bottom of the funnel.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Are your passions evident to those who know you?

  • Participants text 12 people, asking for the top three words that best describe what they are most passionate about.
  • Write responses in the Passion 360 worksheet.
  • Have participants hone in on the 4 words that seem most frequent and/or are best representative of the responses. 
  • Make sure they are using copy-and-paste in their texting and not typing it out 12 times.
  • Emphasize that they should send individual texts and not a thread so responders are not influenced by others.

  • First have participants choose a category that best represents their current or desired trajectory of contribution to the world.
  • Then within that category star or circle one (or two if difficult to decide) types that further articulate that trajectory.
  • This does not mean it is the only thing they contribute but rather help to clarify what most satisfies them.

Purpose/Objective

Because so much of our life and purpose is connected to our name and what we’re called, we need to more fully understand names that we’ve been given, and names we need to let go.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “When we learn to name reality, we release the power to change it. When I name it, I can change it.”

  • Talk through the importance of naming using Biblical Patterns and modern day examples.
    • Biblical Pattern #1 in Naming: Sometimes we need a name change. (Biblical examples of name changes, focusing primarily on Jacob.)
    • Biblical Pattern #2 in Naming: Sometimes we need to live up to our name (Biblical examples of living up to the name, using Gideon as the primary example)
    • Give examples from your own life.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: When I name it I can change it. Names sometimes have positive impact and other times negative.

  • Give participants a few minutes to write down names people have spoken over them, good and bad, and write down on their worksheet. 
  • Give participants 30 minutes to write down names that God might be giving them now,
    and has given them in the past, writing notes down on their worksheet.
  • Give participants a brief amount of time to scan their worksheet and write some reflective thoughts on the experience, as well as any insights or paradigm shifts they had.

  • Remind people that names actually mean things, when you understand the definition of each part of your name.
  • Give a couple of examples, including your own.
  • Have people use websites below or others they are familiar with and fill out the ‘Name calling’ worksheet.
  • See if participants can construct a coherent sentence that incorporates various pieces of their name meanings that resonates with them.

Purpose/Objective

Help participants have a deeper understanding of themselves and how their personality and preferences influence their approach to life, work and relationships - the natural ways they navigate the world around them. These are helpful descriptions that contribute to naming, NOT labels.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: A personality assessment can help describe us NOT define us. Insights describes HOW you like to work and interact in the world.

  • Have participants turn to page 16 on their insights profile and locate themselves on the wheel.
  • Explain the matrix that makes up the wheel and its’ 4 quadrants.
  • Label each quadrant, giving the following explanations:
    • The color of each quadrant as it relates to the matrix
    • The animal name and bird name for each quadrant
    • The healthy and shadow side of each quadrant.
    •  The ideal length of communication/interaction for each quadrant
    • The way each quadrant deals with stress and conflict
  • Talk through the conscious and unconscious diagrams.
  • Explain preference flow.
  • See additional content section for helpful explanations of all the above.

Purpose/Objective

To highlight the participant’s natural talent through use of the Strengths Finder Assessment so they may see what they can lean into to build into strengths.

How It Works

  • Have participants print out report ahead of time and review themselves, highlighting what resonates most and come prepared to share.
  • Emphasize the Strength equation in the Big Idea as a teaching point of how our strengths require “exercise”.
  • Talk through the 4 larger categories each strength falls under and have participants circle their strengths on this chart.
  • Encourage participants to celebrate the strengths that God has given to them by giving a few minutes to write them out and highlight what they appreciate most about how their Top 5 show up in their life.

    • Who Brings Out My Best?: These are the people that are our best match, who sharpen us and offer life-giving relationships.
    • To Whom Should I Give My Best?: These are the people we are uniquely wired to invest in based on our story, design and calling. People that are ready to receive our investment. People of Peace.
    • What Place Needs My Best?: These are the places that we are drawn to invest in based on calling, circumstances, and connection. Places that are in need of and can receive our greatest impact.
    • What Place Brings out My Best?: Where do you go for refreshment? Is it the place that receives your contribution or is it different? Do you regularly seek to “withdraw” to those places?

Purpose/Objective

To express what they are doing when they are doing everything else, in two words; the one thing they must do.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: What is the ONE thing you must do? 

There are two different ways you can have participants complete the Two Word Worksheet:

1. Introduced early on in Journey 1 it can be a gradual population of expressing their LifeCall as they are in process of understanding their Sweet Spot. (Common practice for Accelerators)

2. After all 3 Circles are completed and Sweet Spot inventory is already populated creating a large language bank to pull from. (Common practice for Weekly Cohort)

Demonstrate the structure of their two word pairing as __(verb)__ing __noun___.

Objective is 100-200 word pairings. Quantity leaves room for creativity and clarity without disclaimers.

60% clarity is the goal at this point.

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    This is something that is often introduced at an earlier point in the Accelerator process and is worked on in intervals prior to this focused time of finishing.

  • Weekly Cohort

    In a weekly cohort 20 minutes can be used in session and then completed out of session.

Purpose/Objective

To see their Two Word Calling as the unique way they live out the common call we all have as followers of Jesus - to love God and love others.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Sweet spot helps you find the one thing-singularity of your SPECIAL calling, without being too general or too specific.

  • Have participants add their “best way I say this today” Two Words to their Sweet Spot summary as the final way of expressing the clarity of their sweet spot that serves as an internal compass for them as an individual.
  • Encourage participants that their Two Words are a primary breakthrough component of the Younique process that will daily inform and clarify the most natural way that they can’t help but step into the life God has given to them.
