WARRIOR of Reciprocity

One of the things that holds many people back is a fear of becoming “that person.” As if getting recognition or having financial success is going to inherently change who you are. Sure, perhaps it does for some people. But if you are kind-hearted, person-driven in the first place, it’s unlikely success is going to change you into someone you’re not proud of. Often, quite the opposite. Financial success can free you to do your best work and give back. In today’s marketing world, recognition is also often necessary. Or, as I like to say, “recognition is a strategy, not a goal.”

I wrote an article years ago called, When Your Purpose Is Out To Kill You. In the case of our guest, Paula Brown, a near-death experience helped her find her purpose. And then, as is often the case, when we find our purpose it can feel like it’s out to kill us. Metaphorically that is. Because of what we sacrifice. How hard it is to transition. That we can feel like we have no choice but to follow what’s in our hearts and the quest we’ve been handed. I think you will be able to relate to Paula’s experiences.

Does it seem crazy to have a conversation with an addiction expert on a podcast about entrepreneurship? Let me ask you this. Have you ever felt like your reality was different than what people thought about you? Have you ever felt like an “imposter?” The truth of entrepreneurship is that the image of success and happiness we project isn’t always what’s going on behind the scenes. Not that different than what an addict and the people him or her are managing. Very compelling conversation.

Did you know women often charge less than men for the same services? Cynthia and I tackle this very touchy subject, deciding that talking about it is the only way to bring about change.

Do you consider yourself to be a highly-sensitive person? I would think most Creative Warriors are highly-sensitive people. I know I certainly am. At least in that, I am easily moved to being emotional and I am highly-sensitive of people around me. This is an eye-opening conversation with Debbie Lynn. In the end, I think you’ll find this is not something to be changed but rather leveraged. But being highly-sensitive can have its challenges and we discuss how you can live more peacefully.

Usually when we look at happiness, we wonder why we are not happy or as happy as we’d like to be. Well, what about the opposite? What about wondering why you feel happy and how there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t be happy? That got me curious as to what the root of happiness is. What is it that prevails, that lies beneath the challenges and circumstances, that enables us to still feel happy? I’ve come up with things. For now anyway. I suspect this will be a constant exploration.
