“Build the Safety to Unleash Your True Expression”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Are you used to this yet? Not so serious gets into it deep once again where we uncover the things that get in our way of creating. From our egos and the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, we discover a pretty crazy mindset that doesn’t serve our best interests at heart. Finding safety offers bold expression, freedom, and joy.
POINT #1: “GET TO KNOW YOUR EGO”
-We all have an ego that limits our ability to go beyond our current abilities. When we listen to our ego we stay stuck in our past, unable to surprise ourselves and make new discoveries. The ego is constantly with us so learning to recognize when and where it’s leading us helps to detach ourselves from its chains.
POINT #2: “FORGET FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT”
-‘Fake it till you make it’ has been a long held colloquialism that still receives too much credit than it deserves. It can help give you a momentary boost in confidence to gain some experience with something you’re feeling not certain in, but it’s never more than short term. A better approach might be to admit where you are with honesty and humility — you may find there’s more people willing to help and support you.
POINT #3: “WE MAKE OURSELVES UNSAFE TO CREATE”
-Even when we’re working at home, in our office, in our bedroom or wherever it is, we make doing our work unsafe to do even when we’re completely by ourselves. That’s not a product of someone else, that’s us! That’s the story we keep telling ourselves. That’s the demons we haven’t shone a light on. If we are going to create with any level of freedom, we need to feel safe, and that means looking at what inside is making us feel unsafe.
