Each of these items are optional. The deeper you go, the more you get out of it.

  • If you've never watched Brene Brown's Tedx viral videos on vulnerability and shame, please make time to do that.

  • Watch the 1.0 Story Video

  • Research the origins and etymology of your name. If you think about your name like a blueprint, how has your name defined how you’ve built your life?  

  • Research your naming story.  Who were you named after and why?  

  • Write down names you’ve been given: think nicknames, bad names, phrases that have stuck with you (such as golden child, troublemaker, black sheep, nerd).  Have you allowed these names to act like blueprints, further defining how you’ve built your life?

  • Is there anything in your life right now that feels like it's falling apart? Maybe your ideas about who you are, your beliefs or faith, your expectations for what your life was "supposed" to look like?

  • How do you feel about this falling apart? How does this relate to your WORD?
