In part 1 of this blog we examined how you might get encourage to develop your creative endeavors hoping for success. However this causes a focus outside of the self. Today we will examine bringing the core back to yourself and your needs.
The Marketing of a Mindset
In part 1 we acknowledged the fact that everyone has a gift that would make them a rock star by their own right.
The thing is, if 80% of people, by my estimation, are rock stars, think of how much competition there is. Just look to Facebook and you’ll find a plethora of self-proclaimed rock stars of all kinds. On the one hand, proclaiming yourself as an expert is the first step in becoming one, but there are many steps in between that take you into realms of an expert. There are countless hours of self exploration via your passion or talent, which develop a deeper connection with your art, your music or your muse. There is a journey that the expert takes in which they become a deeper and more intune version of themselves relative to their expertise, and this is irreplaceable.
Now, if the intuitive had told the writer (in part 1) that she should decide if she’s ready to dedicate herself to her book and to taking the journey of the expert, she would have sounded far less enchanting but far more accurate. Writing a book alone, just like recording songs or painting a few canvases doesn’t do much toward creating success for anyone.
The disappointment of not experiencing success or of not being discovered can be heart-breaking. The great difficulty with a broken heart is that it stifles excitement, creativity and inner gifts or passions.
A Mindset To Sink or Swim
It may sound harsh, but a mindset for success is one in which you see pursuing your passion or even growing your current entrepreneurial biz that you’ve had for five years, as an all or none endeavor. You want to jump in the water all at once, knowing that you are a fish or a swimmer, not as a novice swimmer who hopes to be an olympic contender. Identifying like a fish with water means that you recognize that this gift is also the core of who you are. It identifies you and connects you to your God.
If you are looking for some great advice about increasing your biz or becoming an entrepreneur, then I like to say be sure to be borderline-obsessed about your passion. Be certain that you are more interested in spending your time doing what you love than enjoying your success because even successful people like Sting, who has been a literal rock star for longer than I’ve been an adult, spend more time doing what they love. Sting isn’t shy about saying that he spends countless hours on a daily basis, practicing music. So, don’t be in it for the final outcome, be in it for the journey and because a fish can’t stand to be out of water.
The Successful Mindset Is Wise
As a medium myself, I see that we all need help with the blind spots in life. However, no psychic or channel can do it for you. The best help, whether it is from a therapist, a coach, a medium, that unknown universal Source Energy or you cat- will always empower you to be in a mindset of love.
Do what you love and be so passionate that you only see through the eyes of love. Don’t seek success because it is the byproduct of love or the result of swimming because you love to swim. Skip potential disappointment by finding great fulfillment and joy in what you love, dedicating your life to it, marketing your offering endlessly and realize that this is the recipe for success. Money will come when you are on a journey and not just seeking a destination.
