Reflections from the past week.
When is it the right time to stand out like the Artistic Queen You are? And what is stopping you?
Well, the fear of other people's opinions, fear of failure, looking ridicolous, the "law of jante" (which Paulo Coelho explains clearly & beautifully here: http://paulocoelhoblog.com/2012/02/03/the-law-of-jante-3/) are only a few of the obstacles that can stand in your way.
So how do you do it? To be honest, I'm not sure. What I do know is that I'm walking the Path of finding out! And my burning fire, my deep Passion for what I do, is my North Star to finally dare to Stand Out as the Passionate Drummer & Artist I am.
Here's some insights I happily share that might help You on Your Path!
- Get a coach, a mentor or a best friend to hold your hand while taking baby steps ahead (yes, I am a big believer in baby steps! Those Are what actually brings you closer to where you want to go 🌟).
- Know that You Are enough and totally Unique (your coach/ mentor/ friend should help you with this).
- Beware of diminishing the Passion You have for drawing, creating, playing, composing or whatever you do due to the fears mentioned above - again, what You have, who You are, even what colors You like are Unique! If you love Glittery Pink - Go for it!! (nudging awesome vocal mentor Guro Høimyr here 😉 http://gurohoimyr.com)
- Be inspired to stand out by people who do. They don't have to be in the same biz as you! My current Inspirers are awesome @petterstordalen, the norwegian owner and CEO of Nordic Choice Hotels and much more, and gorgeous Kris Oster at @mythicrhythm, archetypal branding author, pleasurist mm.
With lots of Love & Passion,
