What people want is a butterfly. But the caterpillar has to be willing to die first.
When the caterpillar goes into the cocoon, it is digested by its own juices and then is reborn as something entirely different.
The infinite intelligence and power of life is operating to create you as a butterfly.
How are you using that intelligence? Are you using all that energy to resist changing? To stay small? To stay a caterpillar, only 10 percent bigger?
Or are you willing to go into your cocoon to emerge as something entirely different?
I went into my cocoon in 2016 as a lawyer and consultant. I emerged as a coach, and as I went with that energy I found myself helping more and more founders. Today I focus on founders exclusively and help them die to one version of themselves and be reborn as another, again and again, in service to their vision and their business.
I was willing to die to what I had done for almost 30 years and be reborn as something else. Something I had, without fully realizing, been preparing for all along.
You are a lovely caterpillar, I’m sure.
But no one needs a bigger caterpillar.
They need your butterfly.
Are you willing to die to get there?
