I learned several key things from her, including:

  • When to take the leap to start building your team (as an entrepreneur, musician, or creative)
  • My core message – what I’m out to create in the world, and the message I want to broadcast to all of humanity
  • How to craft a simple but effective brand

Hey creator!

Oftentimes, the only person stopping you from becoming everything you can become is you.

Your greatness is already inside of you. You don’t need to go looking for it.

So, what is the greatest enemy to unlocking all that you already are? Why do you spend so much time spinning your wheels? The answer is eye opening.

What’s preventing you from embracing what’s already available to you is the familiar.

The familiar is comfortable. It’s expected. It’s highly dependable.

At the end of a long, hard day, there’s always a warm, comfortable, inviting bed called “familiar” waiting for you. You can return to it whenever it feels like you’re so far outside of your comfort zone you’re living in a horror film.

But it’s that tendency to avoid and escape the scary that holds us back from having everything we desire. Because we are already worthy of it.

Life demands expansion. And it will take us there rather naturally if we let it.

The problem is we resist change. The new is always more uncomfortable than the familiar.

Examine closely your daily routine. When is the last time you felt like you were doing something new?  When is the last time you felt the discomfort of the unfamiliar?

There is nothing wrong with anything unfamiliar. Only our thinking makes it so.

The familiar isn’t to be loathed. And although I used the term “enemy” earlier, the familiar doesn’t need to be made the enemy. That’s just another form of resistance, and whatever you resist persists.

But it would be wise to recognize the familiar. If you’re doing the same thing the same way expecting different results, you’re stuck in an insanity loop that’s preventing the fullness that you are from emerging.

Getting what you want will require that you step outside of the familiar. That’s where it lies. It does not exist in doing more of what you already know to do. How are you expanding today?
