LYL Local March 2016

“Gain Momentum and Find Clarity”

A huge congratulations to everyone who hosted a Live Your Legend World Party last month – the photos and videos that have been streaming in have blown our minds!

Keep an eye out on the LYL blog as we will be soon releasing the World Party Video and your local gathering could be featured!

Last month the focus was on helping you and your participants answer the question ‘Why are you here?’, inspired by one of Scott Dinsmore’s favourite songs.  “I was here” by Beyonce.

So now that your local inspired people have started to think about what they want to contribute to the world while they are here, this month is all about MOMENTUM!

Below are all the instructions you need to be the best prepared you can be, and where you will find the Agenda and Worksheets for downloading.  We are providing the agenda in full here too.

Creating Your Event

If you haven’t already, create your next event in your Local Facebook Group.

  1. Go to your Local Facebook Group
  2. Click on Events at the top

  5. Add in title – “LYL Local March Meetup – Gaining Momentum and Finding Clarity”
  6. Add in all other details – location, date, time etc
  7. Add in a description
    1. Are you struggling to find clarity and gain momentum with the impact you want to have on the world?  Join us this month as we dive into how you can supercharge your project and really get things moving. By the end of the meetup you will be clear on the very next steps you need to take to keep your project or impact alive, no matter what stage you are at!
  8. Create your event (make sure you have ticked “invite all members of LYL Local to your event”)
  9. Celebrate as people decide to join you

Pre-meetup Guidance

Below are some optional guidance and reading/watching to set you up for success for the meetup and to enable you to effectively facilitate a discussion around momentum v clarity. This month it’s all about taking imperfect action and getting into momentum (rather than waiting for clarity to drop):

  1. Read the 10 Secrets to Maintaining Momentum and Finding Clarity
  2. Watch a video by Leah & Naz on Clarity vs Momentum
  3. Let the participants know in your local Facebook group that this month you will be focusing on finding clarity through gaining momentum posting the article and video links. This will help them come prepared with the concept in mind and make your job MUCH easier on the night.
  4. Follow set agenda below (always optional)
  5. Have an amazing time with your participants

Post-meetup Guidance

  1. Follow Up
    1. Make a post in your Local Facebook group sharing how much you enjoyed the evening.  Add a link to 10 Secrets PDF (see below).  Ask the group what their #1 one commitment was.
  2. Celebrate – you are an amazing host.  Take a moment to celebrate yourself and your achievements. What you have just done is nothing short of incredible!
  3. Log on to your Local and Global Group Facebook Page and share your group photo
  4. Log on to your Global Hosts Facebook group and share your favourite moment/lessons learned
  5. Reflect on your evening.  What was your favourite moment?  What do you think could be done better
  6. Complete this short questionnaire [link] so LYL HQ knows what is happening
  7. Celebrate you again – you are a rockstar!

Meetup Agenda

  1. Check In and Mingling [15 min]
  2. Host Introduction(s) [3-5 min]
    1. Introduce yourself and share about the LYL movement and the purpose of the meetup (i.e. to support each other in doing work that matters).  Feel free in this part to touch on the vision that Scott had and how together we are going to continue to grow that legacy.  That together we really can change the world.
  3. Introduce the topic of the evening – Getting into Momentum and Finding Clarity
    1. Share with your participants how important it is to get into momentum before they seek clarity.  You can take lead from the article and video that you watched prior to the meet-up.
    2. Handout Worksheet 1 which will assist your participants to figure out what their very next step will be on their journey to momentum.
    3. Have them individually complete the worksheet
    4. Have them share their results with a partner next to them
    5. As a group – move around the group and invite each person to commit to their very next action.
  4. Introduce the concept of 5 mins a day
    1. When a person commits to taking action of 5mins a day, by the end of the month (the next meeting) they will be in much greater momentum than they were for this month.
  5. Take a photo of your group – to later share globally
  6. Share the date/venue for next meetup
  7. Mix and Mingle – allow participants to connect with each other
