In this special Memorial Day episode, a day when we honor the armed forces in the U.S., I wanted to suggest that we honor our past as well. So often as we move through life, transitioning from one thing to another, we close the door on the past instead of integrating our past into the future. Instead of closing doors, I suggest every door be left open a crack so that in the words of singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

WARRIOR of Reciprocity

We always seem to be encouraged to find our authenticity, our purpose, and our why on our own. Like it’s solely our work to do. I explore and encourage the idea that maybe it’s not our work to do in isolation. That in fact, perhaps we really find ourselves in the interplay of others. While we have an inclination of our “possible selves,” it is aligning with where we belong that really brings our the most of what we’re capable of being. That’s the paradox. Do we bring our authenticity to others or do others bring out the authenticity in us?

When your marketing isn’t working and getting you the results you want, I want you to consider what I call the 3 M’s–money, market, and message. It’s usually one of these three reasons why your offer isn’t getting a response. Most of the time it’s the message. I go through each of the 3 M’s in detail for you. I even keep a post-it note on my computer that says “3 M’s” to remind me to consider these three reasons when my marketing isn’t working.

One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing people being told they’re too much. Or people believing they’re too much because they’ve heard it their whole life. It seems to be very typical for us creative thinkers, groundbreakers, and trail blazers. Instead of letting others try to limit us, it’s time we embrace it!

Just like a treasured family recipe, your special sauce is a combination of ingredients. I go over them one at a time so you can consider each ingredient and what makes your special sauce. This can become a real “selling” point for yourself. What you’re uniquely qualified for. As I say in the podcast, “You have to own it to give it away.”

I’ve been noticing a lot of talk about blocking these days. Blocking the news so they don’t have to deal with it, blocking themselves from social media so as not to waste time, even blocking friends. It got me thinking how this is sort of a scarcity mindset. Blocking certainly isn’t going to get you what you want. So in this episode, I talk about unblocking yourself. Let’s look at several things that block you so that you can unblock yourself and get what you want.

In my years coaching Creative Warriors, the thing that I’ve observed that stands in the way from where you are and where you want to go is owning your gift. I mean really OWNING what it is that you are good at and what makes you different. And because what makes you different makes you marketable, owning your gift leads to a successful business. Having a successful business allows you to give more of what you’re good at and who you are. Do you see the positive cycle here? Along the path of owning your gift, you will encounter four phases. In this podcast, I go over the four phases of owning your gift so that you know what to expect and what support you’ll need. Where are you at?
