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.

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.

 

The New Ph.D

The new Ph.D is self-taught, focused on dismantling permission, and laser focused for results.

Learning, rather connected to an institution or refined in a home with a self-taught energized learner, matters when we connect to a community and build something remarkable.

Think beyond one more article in a database, one more degree, one more plaque, or one more seat in a place that’s been claimed and reclaimed over and over.

You have something new, brilliant, and unique yearning for the reality. Learn everything you can about your field. The knowledge is usually a click or free download away.

It matters when you apply the knowledge, when you build something, when you have the courage to bring your thoughts and ideas to life.

Your Ph.D is the result you obtain from the shift, the positive social change, you generate as a result of your research, your passion, your opportunity to make something new.

You are the new Ph.D, bold, knowledgeable, connected, your own boss, filled with wisdom, willing to connect, willing to debate,  conquering greed, willing to sacrifice to build a better more connected world for everyone.

 

 

Imagination

Keep writing to understand your world and to delve into the underlying depths of your imagination.

It’s not enough to stand at the gates of your imagination, then observe the surface, then hit send.

Dig deeper into your personal experience to unlock the gifts of memory and connection you have been granted to share.

Imagine yourself watching your story; consider how others may see your disposition. Lead with positivity, and create beyond the boundaries of your experience.

Learn more and seek deeper vision with every step you take to greatness. The things you haven’t considered are the keys to new possibilities.

Focus on your Greatest Achievement

There is an unmatched abundance of energy in your heart. You can use it to make great things. You can use it change the world. You can use it to change your world.

Learn to hear the world inside you before you set out to help everyone else.

Seek the deepest depths of your intellect, and strive to understand yourself first.

Your goals, your ideas, everything you’re working on will come together once you’ve mastered the world inside you.

Waiting for the Wrong Cues

Too often we wait on the wrong signals for permission to accomplish our goals.

You may have your heart set on helping someone or you may be waiting for the perfect time to start your next big achievement.

A dream does not need permission. Setting a goal and achieving it, will not come with fanfare and applause.

Do the work because you are compelled to change the world. There are better ways to achieve fame and notoriety.

Managing your Imagination

Manage your energy and not your time. Write coherent thoughts. Then envision your conclusions in an all new way by removing all boundaries from your work.

You’re only limited by your imagination. Imagine every possibility and build it with your art and effort to make beauty in all that you do.

You can make universes with your mind, and each choice for your characters and your world makes a new plane of existence.

Love your steps and keep making the world beautiful.
