art & soul reloaded week 9

To Dare Is To Lose One's Footing Momentarily. Not To Dare Is To Lose Oneself' - quote Soren Kierkegaard. Not Daring Is To Die A Little Bit Everyday... Get On With It Then, NOW!!!

ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: business and life experimentation means that at any given moment, you're just one step away from a million-dollar idea - how about that?

Like Søren Kierkegaard said: 'To Dare Is To Lose One's Footing Momentarily. Not To Dare Is To Lose Oneself': not daring equals to lose a piece of you every day, to die a little bit every day... If put like this, it is not a choice - time to: Get On With It Then, NOW!!! I took some time over the long Easter weekend to recuperate, worship and, most importantly, spend time with family and friends, actually enjoying every moment and rejoicing that I am surrounded by love - I know I'm meant to write and document on social media. Still, hey, life is for a living... And now I am back.

art & soul reloaded week 9

Amazingly in this week of my Art & Soul Reloaded apprenticeship (week 9), I am meant to do that: spend time dreaming, fantasising, pursuing joy... Grout tip this week to develop a strategy for achieving the lifelong dream (write a novel, paint, act, whatever..) is contrary to the usual methods of carving the 'extra' time during the day/week and starts exactly with this suggestion: fill the day with magic. Then, grab every minute you can, when you can, where you can: sneak a sentence or two - don't 'do it when you have time' but steal every minute you can like Scott Turow, who wrote his bestseller Presumed Innocent on the Chicago commuter train journey to and from work. Plus, stop self-sabotaging and give up every single thing that doesn't enrich your life ( that is profound). The question to ask is: 'Is how I spend my time bringing me joy? Is it making my life bigger? If not, why in the heck am I still doing it?' Now, after my 30 Days To A More Powerful Self-Image affirmations /process, this resonates back to several of the affirmations - I have tried it, and it is true, everything you do for enjoyment enriches your writing (art/work): to grab and squeeze every moment with passion and going for it makes everything flow so much better - the time is NOW. To ramp up creativity, this week exercise is to generate three ideas for smartphone apps. How about that? Sounds fun, non? Go on, try it - you never know - you could be just one step away from a million-dollar ( or pounds) idea... #youcreateyourownreality #lifestyledesign #lifestyleedit #followme #like #share
