Lately I’ve thought a lot about not allowing fear to hold me back.
About disempowering the emotion and NOT letting it place my excitement on P-A-U-S-E.
I was honored.
I was excited.
I immediately said yes (hello gift horse! I’m not looking you in the mouth.) and, after I hit send on my email, clicked over to reread Charlie’s definition of Creative Giant.
Creative Giants are naturally compassionate, creative people who have the vision to see how the world might be, the courage to take action, and the capability to actually change the world.
Naturally compassionate? OK, I can be that.
Creative? Yep yep. Ive got the myriad unsuccessful (but creative!) endeavors behind me to back that one up as well.
Courage to act? Yes! See above. I acted. The endeavors didn’t rock. I didn’t dwell— I acted again!
And I leaped.
And we recorded.
And it was fantastically energizing and fun.
And I remembered how sometimes fear, AKA nervoucitment, is what prompts us to take risks and see what happens.
You can listen to the “what happened” here.
