The transition point comes when you no longer care about solving the problems. Effectively the problems stop mattering. You're no longer in fear. You're happy in your work and you're comfortable with what you're doing. You're out of your head and you've dealt with the majority of the crazy ideas that use d to stop you.
In this episode, I talk about how I had stopped myself once again because I was afraid of what other people would think. The last few weeks have been pretty quiet as I backed off, stopped writing, and really only kept up the podcast. I didn't really know what was up until it hit me in the middle of the night last night. But now that I get it, I can come and talk about it and move on from it. Join me today as I talk myself through this powerlessness thing and what happens next!
I don't believe this needs to be painful. I believe the pain is felt with the experience and in a short period afterward through which grief, blame, shame, or guilt are processed. But I don't believe that 20 years later we should still be dealing with that same pain. There is a way to do this that doesn't have to be scary, hard, or painful. I want to offer you that.
happens instead is, you're shown what you believe the majority of the time, but then every once in a while, something different will sneak through to show you that something different is possible. It happens that way so you don't think you're crazy
I've stopped talking about the book long enough to post this piece on powerlessness because it came up for me yesterday. You all know by now, that when I experience something, I share it. So, powerlessness was the thing. You'll actually watch me in this video talk about what was going on inside my head and move through it anyway. As the saying goes, feel the fear and do it anyway. I did!
The power in this case is the engine in the car. It's the thing that puts the drive in what I do. If passion is the gasoline, then power is the engine. You need both to make the car move. Passion isn't a problem. I have that. Feeling powerful enough to use the gasoline effectively? That may be part of the issue. Am I worthy of this passion? Do I deserve this gasoline? Is it okay if I do this?
