“We’re living in times that it’s not safe to play it safe anymore. Conventional life is changing and we need to take risks. We need to listen to that original impulse. If you’re creative, if you have an idea, if you have something unparalleled within you that you have to give this world, it doesn’t work to deny it. It doesn’t work to sit on it. When you have a creative idea, when you have an inspiration—it’s never been here before. We try to plan from our linear minds. We’re trying to look at what’s worked in the past and ‘figuring it out.’ It’s really about letting it out.”
This is an excerpt from a talk by my amazing mentor and coach Tama Kieves. My computer is packed with these little quotes of hers. The big news is that yesterday her highly acclaimed second book was released (it’s #1 on Amazon for career books), titled Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding in Your Life’s Work! I can’t recommend it highly enough (nor recommend Tama highly enough). In my humble opinion, she’s a genius and in her own way, transforming the world. (…definitely transforming my own life.) I hope you check out her book!
