The process of personal growth is both awakening and becoming.
Awakening is the process of connecting with our purpose and passion. It is both spiritual and psychological. It is internal and eternal.
Becoming is the process of integrating our soul’s deepest desires–our purpose and our passion–with our everyday thoughts and actions. It is experiential and external.
The more we awaken, the more we can become. The more we become, the more we can awaken.
This idea can be applied to organizational development as well. Awakening is the process of discovering and articulating the organization’s highest purpose and vision. Becoming is the process of bringing that purpose and vision to life through action.
