But as I used to tell my staff, “Be careful what you’re good at—you could end up doing it for years.” Creative Genius isn’t about being “competent”. Competency is for suckers. Creative Genius come from your true strengths. Not your fake-it-til-you-make-it strengths, but rather, the energizing goodness that comes most naturally to you.
If it doesn’t light you up, you’re not the right person for the job.
Getting clear on what you’re scared of can instantly diffuse ticking anxiety bombs and release your creative power.
Why are you afraid? This is where you get it out of your system: bankruptcy, unfulfilled potential, trashing your reputation, losing it all. And then (because we just can’t stop there), you’re going to apply some simple analysis to it. You may have nothing to fear after all.
