So, here I am.
Inspired and fired up. I wrote this really popular post about business and creative genius and have every intention of taking my own advice.
I am actually overflowing with ideas of what I could do.
But I’m not really sure where to start. So – I popped into the CrazySmart Wisdom Council in the Creative Dream Circle and received this sparkling gem of wisdom:
If you only keep your eyes on the prize you miss out of the adventure of getting there.
More importantly – there is a 90% chance you’ll get to the wrong prize with that approach, because it’s the inner journey of bringing a dream to life that shapes and molds the dream as it heals and transforms you. Which is why getting what you want, when you’re just focused on getting what you want, usually feels so hollow.
I know all of this, but I forget. Which is why I have to visit the CrazySmart Wisdom Council so often.
I don’t want to just get what I want. I want the magic and sparkle of the hero’s journey.
So I’ve decided to slow it down and to not act just yet.
To sit with my ideas and spend the next few days with my creative journals.
Opening up to the adventure of being where I am.
Letting the path come out of the excitement, love and creativity of all of that.
While my logical mind is saying “ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WITH THIS? YOU NEED A SERIOUS PLAN HERE AND YOU NEED TO START ACTING ON IT YESTERDAY, THIS IS YOUR LIVELIHOOD, IT’S NOT A GAME!!!!”…
My heart is practically bursting out of my chest, sparkling with happiness. My creativity is dancing wildly around, my creative genius is decorating for a creative journal party with streamers and balloons and glitter and tiny pots of tea.
My inner wisdom is sitting quietly and saying yes.
Going inward is the only way to go forward.
If I leap ahead right now, my leap will be fueled mostly by hope and ambition.
Hope and ambition are ok. But they are weak compared to purpose, spirit, creative genius, inner knowing and connection to spirit – that’s the kind of POWERFUL fuel I am looking for here.
