Where’s the magic?
Do you spend all day frantically racing through the items on your to-do list, but by bedtime feel like you’ve accomplished nothing? Or have you gotten trapped in a routine, your days stuck in a cardboard box? Do you have that nagging sense that you could be doing something–ANYTHING–else with your life, but you’re not sure what?
You rack your brain trying to figure out how to achieve your goals…and you turn to Google.
If you’re like me, you’ve read every tip, trick, and hack on the planet. Often, though, these leave you even more confused and off kilter. Enough!
NOW is the time to stop looking outside yourself for the answers!
It’s time to generate the magic within you
To generate means “to create and distribute vitally and profusely.” Think of nature, constantly generating fresh flora and fauna. Similarly, we are perpetually spawning new ideas, from creating intelligent, responsive websites to friendly, seemingly magic interactions with our devices.
Now, “magic” can mean lots of things, but I’m not referring to fairies, potions, or wizards. I’m referring to that feeling we get when we see a movie or visit a new place and say, “OMG, that was magical!”
It’s that feeling that we’ve been temporarily lifted out of the mundane and touched by the divine…that some latent spirit has been awakened within us.
We’re all capable of generating magic. Of becoming, in a sense, magicians…able to take the raw materials of life—even if we only have twigs and pebbles to work with—and turning them into a masterpiece.
How do you get unstuck?
If you’re a writer or any kind of artist, you know all about blocks. But the act of generation helps you to bust through these blocks and produce something amazing. Even if you have no ideas in your head, you sit down and start typing or drawing and all of a sudden ideas are spilling out left and right.
Similarly, if you have a blockage in your own life—you can’t figure out how to make more money, lose weight, improve your relationships—you can overcome these blockages by getting out of your head…by moving out of analysis paralysis and into action…by activating your higher powers.
Whether you’re a creative entrepreneur, a freelancer, or a 9-to-5er stuck in an unfulfilling job, my mission is to help you ignite the fire within you. While many of my articles are geared toward writers, anyone who appreciates art and beauty…who wants to live an exuberant, joy-filled life…will find value in my content.
Why should I follow your blog?
I’m a voracious consumer of information, traveling to the far corners of the web, and sometimes I feel like I’ve seen it all. I’m sure you’ve felt this way too. But consuming information does us no good if we don’t put it into action…if we don’t generate.
What I’m offering, then, is not a bunch of regurgitated information. Instead, I’m inviting you on a journey to show you how I navigate through life’s challenges, including the mistakes I make along the way. This is an ever-evolving journey. I’m continually looking for ways to enrich my own life and the lives of others, and when I find them, you’ll be the first to hear about it!
Yes, I’ll cover practical stuff like tools and strategies for improving your productivity, creativity, and income flow, but more importantly, I will help you develop core principles. Strengthening the core is something we hear about all the time in exercise lingo, but developing a rock-solid internal core is crucial if you want to keep your balance while getting tossed around in the waves of life.
It’s time to unleash the magic within you.
