The will of an Inventurer

August 21, 2016

In the book of wisdom lies, what I believe to be the key to fulfilment. In the 20th chapter you will find these words:

“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.”

This really made me stop and reexamine my journey, whether I was walking in integrity with myself and the divine mandate on my life – to be “A Ray of Light” so that others can be one with, and unleash the divine purpose in his/her heart.

I have never had that much clarity as I do today, yet, if I look through the rear view mirror of my journey I can point to a number of times where I have offered insight to my clients as opposed to being a source of enlightenment towards actionable insight from their deep well of purpose.

That’s the will of an Inventurer.

She is someone who is not waiting on a coach, a consultant, a highly regarded individual to tell her what to do , how long to do it, when to do it.

She is someone who has developed the resilience and resolve to be self-directed and self-disciplined enough to seek knowledge and wisdom consistently and to convert that knowledge into results for herself through action.

She is someone who has taken personal responsibility for personal growth, who sees personal development as a  lifestyle and not an event.

Now here is the thing……no one is exempt from this lifestyle. This lifestyle of self direction is not limited to the start up to early stage entrepreneur, for example. Why? Because ……….

the bigger you play, the louder the chatter


Life is a journey. This journey is a two sided coin. On one side is the adventure,  in building a business that solves a problem for others while being of service. On the other side, its the inward adventure (“inventure”) as you go through the Zigs and Zags of life, but not losing sight of your core purpose.

Learning to convert knowledge into results is something people can struggle with. This happens to me from time to time. Thanks for sharing this Dr. Ray.


I love the part that admonishes one to see personal development as a lifestyle and not an event. I know my experiences of personal development has been more of an event, PA for staff every Monday, take some notes until the next time. My desire is for it to become a lifestyle.


Amen Dr Ray.
