A few days ago, I was having dinner with a friend. She said, “Belinda, there is a momentum around you right now. What are you doing?”
Without really thinking about my answer, I said, “I’m encouraging people, and it’s what I was put here to do. I’m happier than I’ve ever been.”
I started Belinda Smith Creative because I wanted to make it official, but the truth is I’m not doing anything that I didn’t already do. I’m a born-encourager and I get real joy out of seeing people surprise themselves in magnificent ways.
I asked my friend about her business, and as she began to tell me how she was running it—or more accurately how her business was running her–I gave her three ideas about where she could make money now with just a little effort. I was just brainstorming on the spot, but I could completely tell when ‘possibility’ happened for her.
The moment she realized that she could work a little differently (not more) and get faster and better results, her entire countenance changed. A light bulb actually came on in her head.
My ‘possibility’ happened when I created my songwriter Tune-Up academy.
When I decided to leave all the old models I knew behind and create the program I personally believed in, I wasn’t sure if anyone would get on board. I’m elated that regional writers ARE on board and they are changing their thoughts and their communities. It was a risk, but it has been one of the best things I’ve ever done.
We get so stuck in our own ways of doing things that sometimes it is hard to move our own thoughts out of the old patterns.
I’ve done it in my business, and I’ve done it in my songwriting.
If we do what we’ve always done, we’ll get what we’ve always gotten.
My challenge to you this week is to find one thing in your life that needs a little prodding forward and take action toward making a change.
- If you want to start exercising, start walking.
- If you want to finish a song, then take the week and finish one.
- If you need to find some new and meaningful song ideas, then sign up for my Free Creativity Lesson (you’ll be surprised how many ideas you’re missing).
Do something to move yourself forward this week, and this time next week you’ll feel AMAZING!
To Your Adventure,
p.s. Let me know how it goes!
