A whole week since my last post. You can call me a slacker, I won’t be offended.
We are 2 days away from our big move back to Michigan.
I. CAN’T. WAIT. to get out of Illinois. And be closer to friends and family. I love my internet friends, but people look at me funny when I say
“My friend from online.”
I need to see some in-person friends for a change.
Hope your last week was extremely productive – unlike mine.
After RHH Live, I’ll be honest, I felt a bit overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with all of the things that I needed to get done in the next
couple of months month. Overwhelmed with all of the projects I have to catch up on, thanks to that damn hurricane. Overwhelmed with all of the pressure I feel to grow.
Do you ever feel that way?
Glad I’m not the only one.
I just wanted to drop in and tell myself to
suck it up
stop acting like an amateur
slow down & breath
Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about you.
I’m reading this fantastic book right now – Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield.
I just finished The War of Art last week – also by Steven Pressfield. And can I say it – holy amaze-balls!
The War of Art opened my eyes to so many bad habits and excuses that I make day-in and day-out.
Like this –
Resistance is the key to failure.
It’s what pushes us away from actually sitting down to do the work.
If you can power through resistance and just DO, you’ll be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.
Or this –
The artist vs. the addict.
Are you living in a shadow career?
Are you passionate about something but not taking action?
The artist is living out a productive, creative career. The addict is caught in an endless loop of aspiration and yearning that never gets backed up with meaningful action.
Which are you?
Can you backup your passion with action?
Stop being an amateur.
This time I’m talking to you.
Be a pro.
When you’re living the life of an amateur, you’re running away from your calling. You’re running away from your truest self.
The world needs what you have to offer, because truth is –
there is only one of you
you are the only one who can do what you do in the exact way that you do it
Think about that.
Also, if you missed it in the last post, if you want to uncover your truest self, I urge you to take Sally Hogshead’s Fascination Advantage Test. It’s incredible.
Want to see how I live out my Pro life?
Like I mentioned last week. there is a new program in the works. A very juicy program for you, a very scary program for me. I’m letting you behind the closed door of my business in 2013.
It’s a bi-weekly email program. You pay once and you get my exclusive, top-secret (nobody else on the face of the planet sees) emails delivered straight to your inbox every two weeks.
It’s going to take the guessing game out of your own programs. You’ll get to see exactly how I manage to tackle my 2013 goals, how much money I earn and how I handle any failures (knock on wood).
Sign up here and you’ll be one of the lucky ones that gets the program at a super-discounted rate. Only my awesome email crew will get this pre-sale discount, so jump on it, if you’re already hooked or want to know more.
love & passion,
