    S4 Ep 5 We Don't Need to Be in a Hurry to Succeed

    S4 Ep 5 We Don't Need to Be in a Hurry to Succeed

    You can accomplish GREAT things.. but why are you in a hurry? Reaching success takes time! Once the excitement of the start wears off, it's easy to go astray.. Now it's frustrating and you need to FIND A SOLUTION! Instead of playing Web MD for your craft to find an answer... it's time to slow your roll and come back to your foundations and reach out for help. You might even find opportunities where you least expect them. 
    In this week's episode, I get into why we become fatalist when things don't go our way, how we should take on the mindset of climbers on Mt Everest, and how a better foundation will make every setback less painful.

    What Happens When We Trust Creative Strength

    This week we’re diving into our STRENGTHS.  I’ll dive into why we should stop focusing on our faults, how they they aren’t faults in the first place, and then guide you through an exercise that helped ME reframe how I viewed the world last fall. It’s a powerful tool that will help you fortify the strengths you already have.
