She asked about how to create and stay focussed in chaos, and I told her my truth-
We, as creative entrepreneurs need to stop fighting the chaos. Perhaps it is the chaos that makes us brilliant.
And that’s the truth
But right now I’m craving the need for structure
The need for systems
The need for strategies
To make my world feel whole and secure and unrocked
In a world full of disorder, and chaos.
And if this is you
Seeking your calm in a global storm
Looking for your next level but in a way that is easier because, well, who needs MORE chaos and division right now?
I realised – I have been through both ends of business – I have licked the wounds of failure, miscarriage, business loss, financial hardship all at once –
And I have felt rapid business success which gave me financial freedom, global publication, the success I wanted;
And through the most chaotic time of my entire life I got to the point where I felt the most peace I had ever known-
It came absolutely through my faith FIRST but then through knowing concretely that you find the strength to find that peace from within
You don’t need to go find yourself
You don’t need to wait for the storm to pass
You don’t need to pause your natural, creative, chaotic, mind a million miles per minute ideas factory to learn how to focus
You don’t need systems, strategies, someone telling you ‘this is what you need to do’
You just need to connect with your strength-
This chaos you are feeling, right now? The need to run, to avoid social media maybe, to drown out the noise where everyone else is trying to make THEIR voice heard, be the expert, be the voice for global justice / change / business glory
You’re letting the chaos eat you up and devour you.
Before the systems- strategies – order-in-disorder
FIRST you find the inner peace, your daily flow, your natural rhythm than NOTHING can rock or leave you feeling TOO chaotic to create or sell or speak or even EXIST
You find your inner strength and you channel that every single day
Come what may
And that is how you create your hideaway island, your calm in the storm, and how you prevent not showing up in your own LIFE because you can’t stand the chaos and hurt of this world any more
How you stop sharing the NONSENSE you know probably matters ZILCH anyway yet you do it to AVOID YOUR OWN VOICE AND YOUR OWN TRUTH BECAUSE YOU’RE SCARED OF BECOMING PART OF THE NOISE
you continue to create
you continue to show up
And you will continue to move forward and NOT in the smallest of steps but as the eye of the giant starry tornado that you have always known as your truth and that they always witness
And in your peace you bestow peace
In your strength you give them strength
In your concrete vision and purpose and design for your entire LIFE and for your higher purpose
You become the change you wish to see.
DROWNING OUT THE NOISE BY TAKING THE ACTION YOUR SOUL CRAVES
STRATEGY YOUR OWN
YOU HAVE IT ALL
