You know the high energy achiever when you see him. Eyes straight ahead, shoulders back, standing tall. He speaks with purpose and conviction. He’s beaming from head to toe. He’s the kind of person that makes you feel like an utter loser while standing in close proximity. After being in the same room as this guy, all you want to do is crawl back home to get your life together.
Right now, right this very moment, we are in the perfect position to make great things happen for us. Despite being in the middle of a global pandemic, these times are rife with the opportunity to build or re-build ourselves.
If you won the lottery which gave you the option of choosing between taking $5,000,000 immediately or $10,000 for week for life with the condition that you’ll only start to receive the funds a year after you’ve won, which one would you take?
We all over complicate the process of creativity. Being creative is as simple as letting go. It’s about subtracting distractions in order to add your gift to the world.
It’s all about getting out of your own way in order to provide a whole experience for your audience.
Let them smell your flowers.
“Erase the false impressions from your mind by constantly saying to yourself, I have it in my soul to keep out any evil, desire or any kind of disturbance—instead, seeing the true nature of things, I will give them only their due. Always remember this power that nature gave you.”
By Anthony Boyd
You look at yourself through the eyes of another.
You see what they see. What they see is a reflection of how they see themselves.
You can’t see yourself. You’re caught in a tangled web of misconceptions.
But you can’t be in two places at once so you default to their line of sight.
This is where you get your self-pity and contemptuous attitude toward all of your ideas. Your potential to realize the strongest version of yourself.
The good news is that you’re always there waiting for yourself to re-merge with who you truly are.
The being that doesn’t look upon itself with the scornful eyes of others.
It’s all up to you.
The choice has to be made.
Do you continue to default to their lines of sight out of “survival?”
Or do you grow and actualize into what God intended?
