Journey Stage of the Hero's Journey - Becoming Real The journey always begins with a yearning. We feel discontented, confined, alienated or empty. Often we do not even have a name for what is missing, but we long for that mysterious something. The urge to seek the grail, to climb the mountain, to seek wisdom, to cross new frontiers, to achieve the formerly unachievable in all areas of life seems endemic in the human race. The Seeker starts us on the journey by responding to the call of Spirit to ascend.
S10 E33 The Seeker Deep Dive |IBGR | Donna Kunde & Londina Cruz “Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”― Joseph Campbell
The Seeker seeks to find a better future or a more perfect world. The call takes different forms for different people. Always the call is to function at a higher or deeper level, to find a way to live that has more significance and depth, to find out who you are beyond the social persona that you and your environment have jointly created.
To some degree, all the forms of the quest reduce to a basic desire to encounter authenticity in oneself, in the world outside and in the cosmos as a whole.
There are five levels of the Seeker:
Shadow - Excessive ambition, perfectionism, pride, inability to commit, addictiveness in general
Call - Alienation, dissatisfaction, emptiness; opportunity knocking
Spiral One - Exploring, wandering, experimenting, studying, trying new things
Spiral Two - Ambition, climbing the ladder of success, becoming the best you can be
Spiral Three - Spiritual searching, transformation
Allow yourself to daydream about greener pastures, where you would rather be than where you are. Perhaps it’s a different partner, a different lifestyle. Then let yourself imagine how you would have to change to make it possible for you to live your fantasy. Are you willing to allow that transformation?

She is an internationally recognized Business Coach and Trainer bringing 20+ years’ experience in military leadership. Donna has been a serial entrepreneur for the last 25 years owning a range of businesses experiencing the unique challenges solopreneurs face with small business growth.
In addition to her entrepreneurial background, Donna brings 35 years of academic and applied cognitive and behavioral science experience to the IBGR Network. Her specialty is helping organizations navigate through change, challenge and tragedy. The combination of her intensive study of the mind, plus practical applications in human potential, Donna provides a unique perspective on leadership, personal growth, sales, communication, and team building.
A high point of Donna's training career happened when she accompanied Dr. John C. Maxwell and his team on a country transformation mission. At the request of the Costa Rican government, the Maxwell team successfully trained 15,000 Round Table facilitators in three days, resulting in a 2% transformation of that nation and projected to reach another 60,000 Costa Ricans the following week. Her trademark energetic communication style and teaching skills have earned her a reputation as a highly effective speaker and respected facilitator.
Londina Cruz is an International Trainer, Executive Coach, and Keynote Speaker with the John Maxwell Team and a Strategic Coach with Anthony Robbins. Londina is a part of Global Transformation with the John Maxwell Foundation, training thousands of leaders in Paraguay and Costa Rica to help transform the values and culture of these nations.
She has spent more than 25 years studying, coaching and consulting in personal mastery and human performance techniques. These techniques include emotional and social intelligence trainings that elevate individuals, leaders and their organizations to excel well beyond current standards – offering a dynamic competitive advantage.
Londina has taken a situation that would devastate most individuals, being hit by a drunk driver, and has turned it into her life force. In this accident, Londina sustained a traumatic head injury, broken back and broken neck. The doctors gave her little hope of a normal life. She has now turned this challenge into an extraordinary life of empowering others to turn their fears into freedom and reach their potential.
Mastering her limiting beliefs and overcoming all that doctors had told her, Londina has thrived physically as well.
She has become a Triathlete (competing in a Half-Ironman and medaling in numerous other triathlons), a two-time marathon runner (Nike Women’s in San Francisco and the Marine Corps in Washington), and a cyclist.
She has released 100 lbs. by taking control of her thoughts instead of allowing thoughts to control her.
She knows what it takes to take you and your team from where you are to where you want to be.
