Go Into The Unknown

August 23, 2018

If you would create something, you must be something.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe

In a world that seems to be moving faster and faster into automation, how are we going to survive? AI (Artificial Intelligence) is here. More and more people’s jobs are being replaced by a machine. Which is a good thing if you can see it that way. We really aren’t designed to do medial tasks. We are creators and meant to create. The only problem is most people are in survival mode and lost their abilities to stir up their creative juices. If we feel threatened we are only concerned with surviving. Everything we do will be centered around protecting our lives and  that leaves no room for creativity. Being creative is liberating. It is free expression and allowing yourself to go into the unknown with a feeling of wonder, joy and excitement. It is turning on your mind to possibilities. That is what we are here to do.

To build, or play music, dance, write, invent, discover or anything that releases your gifts. so if you’re one of the people who lost their job to AI, see if you can turn being upset into being grateful. Because there is where you will find your passion to create.  It is in you!

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

Do You Want to Know a Secret?

May 10, 2018

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.”         Napoleon Hill

I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.

One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of  Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and  educated himself in many subjects.

It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our  talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.

When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!

Are you ready for a revaluation?

 

 


Your Possibilities, Drift or Design?

February 22, 2018

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.    Jim Rohn

I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine the other day and we were discussing what matters most to us. We were asking each other questions that were really creating us to open ourselves up to look at what were the things that we really care about. What does it mean to live an excellent life? What is a good life? What do you value?What do you still want to accomplish? …

We are never to young or old to design our lives. If we don’t design our lives we will drift, and most likely your going to wind up shipwrecked. So why not take the time to ask yourself some questions. Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.

It’s about disrupting yourself and looking for ways to improve and master a skill, talent or gift. If you are having difficulty knowing what you want to design, then hire a coach. They can uncover parts of yourself that you can’t see.

Rising above will help you get a better and broader view of the bigger picture, and there you can begin to design from a whole new perspective. So design or drift? It is your choose. Which will you chose?
