loving your doubts: alert, humble and hungry

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt.
Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

– Robert Hughes, art critic

I’m counting on this perspective from Robert Hughes. I delivered my manuscript to Random House/Crown. Then I landed with a fancy speaker’s agency. Then I head to New York for our soul’d out Selling Your Soul event.

This week I dreamed that it was spring of 2012 and my book was fresh off the press. I’m sitting amongst boxes and boxes of printed books but no one is coming to pick them up. Next dream: Forleo and I are on stage at Selling Your Soul and Donald Trump walks in and distracts everyone from what I’m saying. (Someone check his birth certificate!) Next dream: a box of matches that doesn’t light.

Resistance? Doubt? Hell yes! Thankfully. The jitters render me alert, humble, and hungry. Ideal qualities for navigating.

My friend and coach reminded me that there is a moment when the acrobat let’s go of one trapeze and is completely suspended in mid-air before she catches the incoming rung.

You have to let go to get there.

You can be deeply certain, and slightly doubtful.

You can be scared, and really, really ready.
You can give it your all, and then give it over to God.

You can have everything to lose and everything to gain.
I’m banking on it.

Love your doubts. Stay awake.

And because the “landscape” of the meditation is so key, we’ve given you a visual “mood board” of photographs to help you see your way into the space.

An open letter to my peoples How can I help

An open letter to my peoples: How can I help?

Here are the questions––which I am now asking YOU: What’s the drag in your life? The general pain points. How could I help you with that?

Addicted to productivity

Addicted to productivity, and the courageous act of…stillness.

Wisdom is so underrated these days, but never mind that. Courage up. Wise people pause. Because they know that when you can be still, you become more real. Deeper. And that’s where the value is.

love-your-problems

Can you love the problems that come with your good choices? (Because there will always be problems.)
