Breakthroughs are followed by breakdowns. And breakdowns are followed by breakthroughs.
I have observed this pattern on far too many occasions to call it coincidence.
You can prepare for the breakdowns but only to a certain extent. There’s a good chance it will be unexpected, out of left field, and all-consuming, even if only momentarily. Which makes it harder to observe the pattern and easier to get caught up in the emotion of it.
But observing the pattern is all you need to do to see it for what it is. The battle is half won once you’ve trained yourself to observe. More importantly, the pattern is not an impasse but rather a test.
Life is full of tests, which result in lessons. Lessons not learned always return later at inopportune moments to haunt us in the form of tests.
To advance in life, in creativity, and in business, we need to learn our lessons. There is no other way.
So, will you develop the mental toughness to invite and welcome tests in your life? That’s how you know you’re on the path to rapid growth.
With that, here’s what I created for you this week:

Did you get your copy of The Renegade Musician yet?
I’ve been developing some awesome bonuses to go with it, and plan to improve its design too.
And yes, I might even be making it into a Kindle and paperback!
But it’s never too late or too early to join the ranks of those who now identify as Renegade Musicians.
Will you empower yourself?
Thank you for your creativity and generosity. I’m rooting for you.
