Which Pitfall is hindering your Creativity? – identifying your artistic shadow & 1st steps out of it

If you want to stay on top of your game… it is wise to get clear about what tends to throw you off.

WHAT TENDS TO BLOCK YOU or STOP YOU?
WHAT HAS THE POWER TO BRING YOU DOWN & THROW YOU OFF YOUR GAME?

 

Start here with the Broad stroke Answer. Check the one (or 2) that most applies to you:

____ I am a Perfectionist- I overthink & overplan & it stops me from executing or finishing & actually putting the thing out into the world.

____ I am TMFMOG (too multifaceted for my own good) & I love chasing all the shiny objects & have the darndest time staying focused for long enough to complete a project

____ I go into Self-Doubt & Insecurity. Comparison, loathing, depression or just plain second guessing of my capabilities.

______ I am a Giver & a Server & I give so much there isn’t much time/$/resources left for Me

_____ I just literally don’t know HOW. I don’t feel knowledgeable & capable enough & I need to know What to do & I need hand-holding cause I cannot do it on my own

______I have been through some serious shit & my own traumas & emotional baggage seem to keep me down or sabotage me from growing

 ______ I am nearly always in a disempowering story about money. $ Scarcity & difficulties seem to follow me & remain my excuse why I don’t get to the awesome stuff.

 

PICKY PERFECTIONIST

TMFMOG/ SHINY OBJECTS

DOUBT/INSECURITY

OVERGIVING/MARTYR

UNSURE/UNDER-SKILLED

EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE

$ SCARCITY STORIES

So the BAD NEWS is that there are no Quick Silver Bullet ‘Take this Pill’ to get over your problems.
If there is a pattern or problem that has been reoccurring for you for a long time- then it has roots in your experience & your psyche so it will not easily just ‘go away’.

The GOOD NEWS is that we tend to give these pitfalls more power by keeping them unconscious or resisting the F#%k out of them.
The other good news is that hidden inside each of these is some positive Gifts that can help us as we get up out of the ditch & start marching with determination towards our Best Life.

Let’s start by looking at the POSITIVE in each of them. 

Perfectionism has within it the gift of good taste & high standards as well as discernment. It wants you to be so great & to protect you from making a fool of yourself.

Over Multi-facetedness has within it the gift of variety, diversity, excitement, stimulation, & a zest for life. It sees value in so many things & is eager to engage with it all.

Doubt has within it the gift of Humility. Insecurity tries to show us our weaknesses & that is good information about where to put strengthening efforts.

Martyr has the gift in it of care for others & generosity. It wants to support & share with others & that is a great impulse. (it just tends to take it too far or do so at the detriment of caring for ourselves properly)

Unsureness has the gift in it of being vulnerable enough to admit what we lack or don’t know & to invite us to lean into the guidance of others.

Emotional baggage has the gift in it of keeping us really Real. Of softening us & allowing us to have compassion & understanding for the pain that is in the human condition- as well as shows us what we are made of & where our strength lies.

Scarcity stories has the gift of showing us the power of our mind to limit us (& thus to free us) as well as invites from us the creativity of working within constraints.

So the BAD GUYS are NOT ALL BAD.
We are not plagued by demons here… we have a proclivity by nature towards a Way of being & this way has it’s pitfalls & it’s pinnacles. 

But if they are cock blocking us from our genius & our power & our potential… then we do need to know how to get past these gatekeepers!
