Holding that passion at bay? For many years I had this resistance within. And this might sound a wee bit odd coming from someone in the creative business, but I had a resistance to create.
This probably needs a bit of an explaination, huh?
I’ve had a lifelong attachment to negativity and fear, but we’re no longer friends.
And years of these feelings amplified this inner-fight, where I was simply denying myself certain creative pursuits.
This crap is rooted in fear. Fear is engrained within us, it stays with us and frankly, fear is a bitch.
I always had a dream to write, but continually told myself I wasn’t expert enough and didn’t have “it.”
Public speaking was something I aspired to, but I feared I would stammer, stumble and slip in a not-so-epic way.
I wanted to make a dent in this here universe, however small. To make a difference to somebody or even a select few who would listen.
And guess what?
That obnoxious little bastard inside always won out:
You’re not creative enough, smart enough or strong enough to see it through. Plus you just don’t have “it.” Sorry, dude.
Years of conditioning led to limiting beliefs, but were heightened by this constant negative self-talk.
Can you relate?
If so, you realize how strong and convincing this noise can be.
Constantly blaring at full volume. Head-splitting and soul-crushing.
I don’t much like, soul-crushing.
What about you?
Remember when you were a kid and had that urge to climb?
So what happened?
FEAR happened, and if you’re like me, you were conditioned to slowly, but surely resist that yearning and before too long you let it go.
You can blame school, society and even family and friends, but it all comes down to you, doesn’t it?
This site is for entrepreneurs, budding bloggers and good citizens of planet earth who want to embrace that urge to climb.
Those who realize there just might be something to those big dreams.
It’s about big aspirations and the baby steps required to get there.
It’s about embracing creativity and understanding the power is there, within. We are all creative souls.
Like I’ve said: It’s branding with a push at this house. Let’s make your’s shine.
Do not resist that urge.
Dream big. Work hard. And join me on this journey, will you?
Now we’re talking and bomb diggity is right.
How’s your internal chatter? Still denying that urge?
What is your big dream beyond blogging?
And if you do consider this a journey, I’d sure like to hear more about it.
