Getting Started

They won’t believe until you make it happen.

You’ll have to believe in your strategy, your plan, your goal enough to develop and refine it into reality.

If no one else wants to take the journey with you, the best journeys begin with a fearless leap.

Trust your vision. The journey to your greatest accomplishments has already begun.

Self Love and Meditation

Guard your mindset with deeply focused mediation and controlled breathing practices. You will open gateways and doors to your inner calm that you never expected.

The Confusion of Gains

Too often, we bog ourselves down in the confusion of searching others for gains, and saying, “If they just did A, B would happen for me.”

Start internally. Change what you can control. Grow deeper in the power to manage your feelings and energy.

This will create the mindset that will launch the vision that manifests the dream.

Shift your focus and build with the true power of self each day.

Solving Problems

Be careful when you’re the one who puts out fires on a daily basis.

Sometimes, you’ll find the that the problems are never ending, and the source that’s generating the flames is the real problem that needs to be solved.

Recharging

When relentlessly seeking your goals, remember to temper your quest with the beauty of rest to strengthen your creativity and inspiration.

Many of us have surpassed, driven. We’ve outgrown determination, and we are hitting our stride

Reach sustainability by setting aside time for something beautiful on your journey. Love your steps and keep moving forward.

Collaborating with Colleagues

Stay connected on your journey to great things. Too often we work in silos and operate in vacuums that lead us nowhere.

I’m sure you’ve got a few friends or colleagues who do the same work as you. Have you ever considered collaborating for growth?

Fear is usually the factor that holds back a good collab. You may question the interaction when the little, scared you inside your head goes, “What if they get more from this than me? What if it doesn’t work out? What if… What if…”

Truth be told, a good collaboration benefits all those with an investment, resources, skills,  knowledge, and experience to add to the collaboration. Avoid imbalances with colleagues who lack at least three of these marquee traits.

The rest is the bravery to start the connection, find a common ground, and ship some high quality work.

The goal is elaborate, unconventional, amazing work that shakes up the world.

Write for life. Make something happen. Make something amazing.

 

Finding New Light in Your Work

Sometimes writing in dark corners can influence your work in a negative way. Let some light into your work.

Too often, I see a writer’s desk or canvas space marred with distractions, clutter, and old wrappers from food mistakes.

Clean off that desk, open the blinds, write in the sunlight if you don’t have a window.

The goal is to open the possibilities of your work to new light, new circumstances, new experiences.

And above all else, be brave. Experiment with new ideas, new readings, new characters and thoughts.

There is no limit. You have all that you need.
