I was chatting to a lovely new friend of mine yesterday, and the subject was creativity. She has commenced her own business in the last year or so doing what she loves, and was commenting that the creativity that comes with that "cannot be switched off".
Wow! Something to be said for doing what you love… what you are meant to be doing.
But there was a gremlin there, sitting on her shoulder, telling her she isnt creative, because she never has been. Something she associates back with not being able to draw in school (not even a straight line:)… and so her inner voice is discounting this incredible creativity she has found.
And when I told her that I perceive her as very creative (and I have only known her a short few weeks…) her inner voice had a very hard time accepting that. And accepting the worth of the stuff she creates.
What are you discounting because your little inner voice tells you you cannot do it, that you arent good enough, that you’ll never be able to… what false beliefs do you have about your gifts?
Tell the devil on your shoulder to get a life, and just DO IT!
