You have the potential to tap into an unlimited creative energy that is uniquely yours. First, you just have to conquer your Inner Critic.
So have you ever felt suppressed criticized, put down, held back, Like no matter what progress you make, it’s one step forward and 10 steps back. And that causes you to become tired and stressed and then you lose your confidence. And then you say I just got to keep trying harder, I must be able to try harder. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Matter of fact, that’s not your natural state. Your natural state is not one of struggle. In fact, most of the resistance that you are encountering you didn’t put it there. It’s not because of you.
It’s not you. You’re not blame. From the time you were very young, you started to hear messages about what you should and shouldn’t do, even when your little perfect heart was set on what you wanted and what you knew. You had these external forces. And maybe they were well meaning. Maybe it was your parent or your teachers, or maybe there was older siblings or neighborhood kids. Maybe they didn’t set out to screw up your life and destroy your creativity. But if you’re not living life right now, fully expressing all the creativity that’s inside of you, then you probably have a little inner critic going on. Maybe that voice isn’t yours. Maybe that’s not you. Maybe those are the echoes of the past. Maybe those are voices from years ago coming back. And if you don’t do something about that, if you don’t take steps right now to do something about the voice of that inner critic, then you’ll continually be held back. You’ll continually feel suppressed. So maybe this is as good a time as any for you to begin to experience the freedom that’s actually available to you. But you got to get rid of the critic first.
And how do you do that? Well, there’s lots of forms of therapy, and there’s lots of methods, and a lot of cool technologies that you can do. I’m not suggesting that one is better than the other, or that one is worse. You’ll find your own perfect way. But what I have found is some very simple philosophies that can eliminate the inner critic forever and restore you back to your brilliant, natural trajectory.
Your original factory setting, if you will. And if you want to experience this natural brilliance, if you want to experience this elevation of frequency, if you’d like to feel again for yourself the beautiful innate creativity that’s inside of you, it’s not about getting rid of the critic, it’s about displacing the critic. Because what is the critic? What is the inner critic? It’s just the echo, the residue of those past people, those past outside forces, who are trying to get you to conform, not create. So you want to displace the critic, there’s only one possible way you can do that. The only way you can displace the critic is to create some new evidence. You got to create some new evidence. What does it mean to create new evidence? Creating new evidence means starting right now, today, that you begin to take some sort of new, different creative action. Yes, we’re not just talking about feeling and thinking differently.
We’re talking about doing differently. Something so different, something so radical, something so out of your ordinary, that by the time you go to sleep tonight, you’re thinking over the day and you think, “Did that actually happen? “Did I actually do that new bold, radical thing?” And your brain will say, “Yes, you actually did it.” That’s how you create a new history. And I got to tell you, the only way that you can have a new future, is to have a new past. That means doing something different today. Yes, you may still feel some resistance. You may feel the momentum of those old critical voices telling you that you’re not good enough, that you’re not smart enough, that you won’t amount to anything. And I’m definitely not suggesting that you have to tell yourself those things.
Don’t go look in the mirror and say, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough.” Look, talk is cheap. You want to change your life? Actions, actions, actions. That’s the only way that you’re going to fall asleep tonight and look back at this new day that you created for yourself, and the only way that you could create a new day is to take some new action. And while you’ve been watching this, and while you’ve been hearing these words, I’m willing to be that there’s something that’s crossed your mind that you’ve been wanting to. Something you’ve been putting off.
Something that’s been inside of you. Maybe this is destiny. Maybe this is fate. Maybe this is just blind luck because you clicked and started watching this video. But here’s what I know. I know for sure that creative pulse is alive inside of you. And it’s unquenchable. It can never burn out.
So maybe today’s your day to take that new action. Today’s your day to be bolder, to do something more radical, so that when you fall asleep tonight, you go, “I can’t believe I did that.” And then you wake up in the morning and you go, “Ah, I can’t believe I did that.” You do that for a couple of days, you begin to weave yourself an entirely new reality.
That’s your legacy. This is how you experience the fullness of who and what you actually are. You are an artist. Believe it or not. You’re here to create something uniquely beautiful. Something uniquely you.
