Who Do You Think You Are?

When it comes to sharing your Art with the world (and by that I mean the art, writing, music, healing, or message you’re here to get out into the world), who do you think you are?

A common stumbling block for so many clients is that very thought: “Who do I think I am? What makes me special?”

You’re Not Special

My teacher Sonia once said to me, “You’re not special,” when I was doubting whether or not I was “qualified” to participate in a particular training event.

It made my Enneagram Four-self smile. (In a good way.)

I say this to you too, “You are not special.”

You too, have important pieces of work to share with the world.

Your work is just as important as my work or anyone else’s work.

We each have our part to play, or contribution to make, small or large, far-reaching or local.

Are you doing your part?

Who Do You Think You Are?

Most of us have heard this question, “Who do you think you are?” at some point in our lives, usually when someone else thinks we are getting too big for our britches.

(And most of us could use a little more bigness in this department so it’s too bad that happens, IMHO.)

And yet, having a clear strong sense of who you think you are is a powerful foundation for the choices, actions, decisions, and priorities you make, do, and set in your life.

You’ll make an entirely different set of choices if you think of yourself as a screenwriter or a messenger than if you think of yourself as a mother who can’t find time to write.

Even better: to think of yourself as a successful screenwriter or messenger!

Craft Your Identity Statement

Today in my Claim Your Creative Identity TeleCourse, we’ll be working on defining a clear, delicious Identity Statement that begins with the words, “I Am.”

Like this: “I am a successful, creative writer.”

I’d love to have you play along by posting YOUR statement of identity on the blog (and you’re welcome to join the class today if you’re inspired).
