Seth Godin, one of my favorite and most inspiring thought leaders, recommends more than anything, to blog everyday. In fact, it's one of the only pieces of advice he seems willing to give. When asked about his daily routine, he typically replies vehemently with how it doesn't matter, When asked what kind of tools he uses? Same response. He does advocate blogging every single day. Why? Because it's about practicing every single day the art of showing up. The ability to move through your fear or being rejected, of bruising your ego.
And, that is a muscle that you build. When you publish a piece of your art everyday, you honor your creative insight, your creative brilliance.
The bigger that muscle, the more you become who you were meant to be.
And, in my 1,000's of conversations with people about their dreams with poor people, ivy league people, high school dropouts, CEO's and stay-at-home Moms, and everyone in between, we all have a special yearning inside, a special way that we see the world, a special gift we are dying to bring to the world.
Your biggest challenge isn't a gap in your skills, or a gap in your family background, or a gap in your bank account. Your biggest gap is the willingness to practice showing up as You, over and over and over.
