“Allowing Your Own Authentic Experience to Direct You”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Learning through experience is the most profound of teachers. The only way we can achieve this is through trusting the process we’re in which opens us up to fully taking it in. It isn’t necessarily the fastest way of learning but is far more life-changing than simply being told the answers.
POINT #1: “EXTEND YOURSELF TO TELL STORIES”
-As storytellers of any kind, to reach the level of artistry we need to put ourselves beyond our own limitations. Sometimes that means really trying a new perspective or circumstance on for ourselves that moves us in ways we’ve never experienced before.
POINT #2: “EXPERIENCE IS THE GREATEST TEACHER”
-Not just external experiences, but our internal experiences of creating can teach us things about our process that can transform our philosophies for a lifetime.
POINT #3: “TRUTH IS THE GAME”
-Getting over our own egos, our image, our low or high sense of self, even the idols we hold dear can get in the way of creating in our most authentic voice. A good part of the battle of creating art is getting past our own bullshit.
