Becoming is more important than performing

Coming off a holiday break and time with family, I couldn’t help but recognize the creativity and rejuvenation that took place in my mind and soul. We are constantly preaching the importance of white space and setting time for play, but in today’s Mojo, I really want to stress one key element of my time away.

I was not focused on performing or reaching goals. I was relaxed and gentle with myself. And because of that, my brain naturally moved into a positive state of mind full of ideas for the future. 

We believe in the power of setting goals. Yes, performance goals will always be important. But if you do not temper them with self compassion, grace, and a positive outlook—becoming and learning as the highest importance–you will likely become stuck in negative self talk and fear. Negative outlooks hurt creativity.

The question you should continually ask yourself is this: how can I be hard and soft at the same time?

What are you doing (practically) to improve your state of mind?

Are you stuck in frustration?
