The perception of the internet is that achieving your goals just takes work and hustle. That just sounds like pain to me.
I've been lucky to experience enthusiasm for what I do on a number of times, so I know the truth.
The truth is once your aligned with your goals, your nearly pulled to your dreams.
The real work is in doing the emotional work to get clear on what you truly desire not think you want.
Like a desire for a woman, car or happiness that desire is coming from deep in you. And if you are full of emotional noise you will not be able to connect to yourself to truly know what you desire.
All clarity comes from emotional congruence with self.
Feeling insecure about my decision to go for my #goals already. Ha ha ha. It's all part of the process.
What I'm working on and writing out is to build my connection and my ability to visualise what and who I want to be.
All this mind set stuff is so counter productive. What creates everything is emotion and the stronger our emotional connection to what we want the easier it will be to achieve and more exciting.
Enjoy I wrote this at exactly 1414 for those interested in the hippy stuff too.
The toughest journey you will ever make is to be yourself.
So much social inertia, social conditioning and insecurity make us feel unsafe to be who we truly are.
It's a huge challenge to just allow yourself to truly shine.
But when you do you will have so much fun and enjoyment of life.
All the things that people are striving for in life all come to you when you just be and allow yourself to be yourself.
That is your greatest source of power!
It's been a productive day; I feel like I was busy, but more importantly, worked on the right things, rather than just being busy for the sake of.
Business is developing well for UK Open Mic, lots of new ideas and systems are starting to take shape and the team is growing.
I'm learning a lot, meeting more, more experienced, people in the business world, and generally improving my knowledge.
So, in case Leonardo wakes me at 6am again, I'm off to bed. Though I'll still be reading for an hour or two, natch ;) (today I started reading "Key Person of Influence" by Daniel Priestly. He's very kindly offered a "free small-group strategy session" with him next week, so figure I'd get the most out of the opportunity if I was as familiar with as many of his books - and concepts - as I can be... :) )
I read something a few days ago in @danielpriestley's book “Key Person of Influence” that’s stuck with me, about physics and the Law of Inertia, stating:
▪️An object at rest will stay at rest, until acted upon by an outside force.
And its opposite; The Law of Momentum: ▪️An object in motion will stay in motion, until it meets a resisting force.
Mentally speaking, if you feel compelled to act, then do it. As you get going, you will find that you gather pace and can get enormous amounts accomplished. Whereas, if you don’t act you become an object at rest, destined to stay at rest until you get a big kick up the bum - far too often in the form of pain from realising you haven’t achieved any of your goals.
🛑Inertia weighs you down and it takes more and more effort to get moving.
🔜Momentum is the feeling of being in flow. It’s a rush and it’s the domain of creativity.
I’ve found this to be true in regards to drawing. When I don’t draw for days or weeks, it’s very hard to pick up that pen. But if I draw every day, even if it’s just a sketch, it’s much easier to continue to do it!
This drawing, as it is, is nothing special. Perspective and architecture is something I pretty much NEVER draw. But I felt compelled to draw it, and since I’ve been drawing almost every day for the past week I found it especially easy to act on that idea! If I wasn’t in that habit, I wouldn’t have acted, and I would be all the more worse for it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bad drawing, the most important thing is that I ACTED! - #danielpriestly#sketch#artdecoarchitecture#wacomcintiq#photoshop#digitalart
I had a new business book delivered today - oversubscribed by @danielpriestley. It came highly recommended by some other freelancers in the @doingitforthekids_ Facebook group so I’m excited to read it!
Other books on my shelf include Your Press Release is Breaking My Heart by @janmurrayuk, the HippoCampus and Content Mavericks by @andrewandpete, the Little Black Book by @oteghauwagba and The Miracle Morning by @hal_elrod.
. @sarahakwisombe also had some interesting recommendations in her stories recently so have quite a list growing but am going to get through these first.
Have you read any of these? What business books do you have on your list to read in 2018? Are there any that have really had an impact on you and you would recommend to other freelancers or small business owners?
