What Do You Know To Be True?
So when it comes to exploration, I honestly don't think that there's anything more important than our truth. So right away, we're just we're just diving in. What do you know? To be true? What you believe way down deep in your bones. What are the life lessons that you've already learned? Okay, so let's do this stream of consciousness style again. No censoring, no stopping to think. It's, just what comes to you and I could start you off to show you what I I have five random things that I know to be sure. Okay, number one wearing black is never any fun. That's what I know to be true if that is not a judgment with people who only wear black. Amen. And hallelujah I with that. That just seems like a much easier life, but that is not what I know to be true to being called weird or different or unique is the best compliment you could get. That's what I know to be true green number three grilled cheese sandwiches are often better than lobster that's. What I know to be true, especially if they'r...
e on rye bread with tomato and there's, a pickle on the side and there's some really crispy french fries, sweet potato french fries, food for its possible all of it I know that to be true number five there's no such thing as failing just learning that's what I know to be true so we're going to spend, like the next half hour creating our own manifestos based on our truth and I'd love to get some markers out here in the in the studio audience get to writing and here's some examples so there's company called holst e dot com and I have a feeling anyone that lives on the internet like we do have seen this forty seven million times you know, this is unbelievably perfect brilliant amaze balls manifesto for this company and you could see these air their beliefs these air their beliefs and there are some opinions wrapped in these beliefs so they're not all fax their universal truth this is your life do what you love and do it often is if you don't like something, change it if you don't like your job quit if you don't have enough time's up watching tv if you're looking for the love of your life stop they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love on and on and on and on um I obviously relate to this life is about the people you meet, the things you create with them, so go out and start creating life is short lived your dream and share your passion and actually for those of you in new york city I'm going to teach a effective escape workshop at holst e at the end of october that you could go and sign up for it right now here's another example um this is puddy like dot com slash shop is where you'll find this poster party like is a must must must must must sight like must read must subscribe must must must sight for all of us renaissance souls it is specifically about being a multi passionate person emily is the leader behind it but they always have just wonderful block contributors and different offerings they have their own community there so you know it's great like I all want you to join the dream career creators that when I grow up cooks dot com slash creative live but it seems like everyone has their own community these days so if there's someone online that you resonate with that offers their own community I know carried shape in who's an instructor here has her own community emily a putty like has the community filled with multi passionate people that might be a really great spot for you so you can see here oh my gosh so representative of the beliefs of a multi passionate person every child could sing every child can draw every child believes they could be a doctor or an astronaut whatever happens to most people when they grow up didn't happen to you you still want to do everything you've a new passion every week and you wonder what is wrong with you?

We have no idea what it represents the expert enough manifesto we're all capable of so much more than we think. Most people never scratched the surface of what they're capable of expertise is relative experts t's doesn't come from a piece of paper that sums up what we're talking about right now. Life is richest when we become good at a lot of different things know it all jill of all trades and renaissance man are compliments life is an experiment you don't need to wait for permission and you don't need anyone else to grant new status it's not about being the world's greatest expert it's about being expert enough to accomplish your goals, the more used creativity, the more you get brilliance lies within each of us go now live play explore follow your passion if that's a word that you resonate with learn more do more be more manifesto right?

Hey, talk us through it things were really weird wait wait just weird right? Weird is oh it's not up here but weird is a compliment and whatever yeah yeah so I have my centres crafting is super important to me, huh? And I have vegetarian for life um oh the family wine I wrote I'm really good at croce here on and live by the hook die by the hook I wrote it makes everything better no one knows I love beer and let's go to the park let's always be going to the park that I just I left the car my daughter loves the park we go there one, two, three times a day I know I'll be fun when it's cold out but it's fantastic you're including your favorite place here including your favorite drink your including what you know you do the best what's important to you our effects anyone else sees a way like this one I've seen on pinterest saltwater makes everything better tears sweat in the ocean ha ha have that print at home yeah that's amazing mmm two great awesome coming from cam e that comey says it's okay to say no but they also say I'm not weird I'm gifted e anyone else have anything they want to show off johannes like right in a way and also pretty yeah yeah I have another one toe add which is kind is more than it kind is more important than right oh I like that right now I'm like you got you guys got on things okay let's see um it will change bizarre is the compliments yes I like that just one word yes with an exclamation point uh normal is just the setting on the logic mission e and I love it everything will be okay in the end if it's not okay it's not the end so taking inspiration from what we've heard here this is fantastic so how does this really how does this relate to the things that we've been uncovering? No, you don't see any religion that what we've been covering nothing most like their resume that we made with the mad lives a little bit um and it's, it is very it's, like a reminder of the things that make you kind of sparkle inside so that you can grab it to keep gravitating back towards them. Thank you. Welcome. Oh, my god! I thought I was lost all of you there, thankfully jasmine. So with e mean, like this is the core of who we are and what's important to us and what we know and what our choose our and so you know everything, everything we do is just another piece of the puzzle. It's another piece of the puzzle which is just really exciting and were able to use it as a compass, we're able to use it to guide us. So if we come across it job thing that like, goes against what we know to be true goes against our manifesto doesn't feel right, um doesn't fit in with what makes us authentic and it's important to us than we know that that's not the right thing for us, it was really important there any been any questions coming in for the chat? Honestly, I thought this would take a little longer and we got sometime way have had questions community, you know, feel free to toe ask questions, particularly about this segment, all you need to do is click the ask button you're seen next to the right of the video feed you can also check out questions that have been asked and you can vote on them so we'd love to hear from some more. So let us get some questions coming in and going it's interesting what people say comedy campbell did machine to explain about that pumpkin? Yes, hopefully is only they were saying that when you carve a pumpkin you always look for the right side same thing basically is putting your best foot forward or kind of like a christmas tree when you hang out, you always try and look for the right right side to face out. Uh it's great and the kohl did you get some other stuff down there? A few other things down I am their kind of random um fit is a lifestyle, not just the body type. Wait, you say that again, please without apologizing by a tone of voice if it is a life, not just think yeah that's better that's better why the apology? I don't know, I don't know. I think this is silly. No, I think it's hard uh why is it hard? I don't know, I maybe I'm still learning truth uh write that down, please I'm still learning my truth, learning my jennet yes, I'm still learning like you have you go back to our last segment on the pie people still I think a bit confused on where they came out and it michelle case just basically asking what does it mean when you get a different result on the furnace personality scale every time you take the test she's the only dichotomy that she could take aways that that really shares a strong introverted nous okay sure is the world but it does that happen when you keep coming out differently um I hope I hope she means like not on the same day like if she keeps retaking it and every day like the same day she comes out differently than that it's a little strange but yeah like europe but I think it means that she's a person and a human being and she evolves which is why you know when we do this stuff and why not to push the workbook but man like you could keep going back to this uh you know and a year and two years in five years and you're going to be different on dh there's gonna be different thing I hope I hope right like we need to all be evolving that it's not then something is wrong and you're probably in a place of really big stuck ification and so to get a different outcome every few years every year every few months or something I think just means that you're evolving as a person our type of personality type and our and our values and our and our skill set and our beliefs I mean they're they're always going to be changing and more thing and that's why I feel like this work is so important and focused on who you are now and then you could do the work again when you feel yourself changing again and you need more clarity when you're in a different phase of your life uh you know it's evolution so that's that's really the piece of that gas can over yeah, I had read something about that word said essentially just keep following right feeling things s oh, I like that idea that you know again sort of talking about yesterday too that it can change and evolve that you can check back in with yourself in a few years does it still work for you if it does great if it doesn't it doesn't mean the wrong choice it just means now it's time for something new and I'm writing this down just follow right feeling things I have one in my hand I'd like to call it my mantra as if we have since we have time I might share it then that speaks to that won because I made a sentence I felt that same way it's funny we're very in sync it's thanks um so if I'll read mine then okay colorful dreamer on a balance attorney seeks light rests and dark smiles make the happy come music is my falco or you won't die in the swamp of sadness why all your favorite movies? Very inspirational lights air pretty look for the lights follow the trail of happy that's leading the way so it's already like, you know it is making you happy and there's a trail of it somewhere that's inspired you that you've gotten a whiff of so, like follow that in that direction experience love through a medium breathe deep smile a lot their muscles in your face you wear your dogs god worship the sun where costumes lived through empathy live like this is my favorite from gandhi live like there's no tomorrow learn as though there's an eternity. Okay, do we see now like this is all. So this is part of our vampire slaying kit. This is part of how we gain trust. This is part of how we keep moving forward and working through the vampire voices on dh. This is also I mean, if we really think ahead of writing and maybe untraditional resume or or putting up a website and you wanted to tell people about you like like these air your truth and who you are and just be a really great way to tell people here the things that I believe this is this is my perspective this is where I'm coming from so you're able to tell it to yourself and should you choose to share it then you're gonna be able to tell it other people teo mmm now we've got some more general questions about the course overall pleased about this that sounds great we got like you know fifteen ish minutes scott gets clean about yeah great interview if you're okay with that michelle yes these do it now you probably can identify with this enormously dominique is asking she basically has a family basis. She was watching this course only after she managed get the baby to sleep saying do you have advice for people who are trying to craft their dream career but simply are not free to just pick up and go anywhere any time because you know she's off got a very young family but she really wants to have a career with travel freedom awesome experience etcetera but it just doesn't seem practical um dominic where's the camera dominy hello? Hello dominic uh if there was a big group of p if everyone was able to just pick up and do whatever they want to at any time I would not be standing here right now I would not have been able to do this work full time for the last four plus years and overall for the last six years I would not have been able to make this work. We're grown ups, and we have grown up means and priorities and responsibilities. And so I it's it's about the baby steps I've said this before I will say it again. It's about the baby steps it's about feeling the career fear and doing it anyway. It's about planning your effective escape? Maybe you're not even escaping a job, but maybe you're just kind of escaping a situation. What is it that's going to make you feel comfortable and confident to do that? What's the very smallest thing you could dio and just you keep moving forward, right? So I used this analogy yesterday. Uh, but I feel like it's such a strong one, so it doesn't have to be this transition doesn't have to be I'm jumping off a cliff, I'm jumping out of a plane, I'm you know, taking a big leap could literally be like, okay, the tight rope that I'm told I have to walk is not thirty feet in the air it's on the ground and you know, I'm just gonna do my work and I'm gonna work I'm gonna walk on the tightrope just on the ground as it's laying on the floor and there's gonna be a point. When I looked back and the tight rope is gone and I'm walking on my own that's how you could step things up for yourself as a grown up, and we just know that like things are not nothing has to happen tomorrow, nothing is going to happen tomorrow. Um unless I don't know you have a winning lottery ticket amen and hallelujah or your parents call you up and say, hey, we didn't have that trust fund for you ha ha! We were just kidding when you ask for it earlier here it is I mean, unless something like that happens issue, which none of us could plan on, um then then just know, ok, well, I'm setting my own course I'm going to start putting things in motion it's going to take awhile? What can I just start doing? Step by step by step by step? Yes, I I love the idea to somebody told me this the other day and it made me feel so relieved. Yeah, she said, you can do it all. You just can't do it all at once, you know? So you could be a mom, you know, of small children for however long that takes and then you can be, you know, the next thing and that, you know, so it doesn't you can do it all, but not kat. And I would say, who would want to do it all at once? That sounds stressful. It does, but some people get anxious that's all never do it right now, right? And, you know, and I know that there's a lot of hang ups about, like, what's the right thing to do first, what should I do first? What? And like we've, we're waiting for the magic answers to what to do first to come from the sky, and I find that one hundred percent of the time there's no wrong answer. The only wrong answer, actually, it's not true, there's. One wrong answer. And that is not to do anything at all, and to spend all your time trying to figure out what to do first and what to do next. Is it so important to figure out, you know, the pattern of things? No, it's it's, not so. Just start doing it, start doing it now, start picking the one thing that gives you the most equal amounts of excitement and fear and start down that path and just do it. So we need to do. Yeah, you said that, um uh, enjoying the journey who, huh, because I from my own experience, I've you know, just tunnel vision to do something, and I get it done, and I'm like, uh, it wasn't as exciting as I thought it was gonna be, but had enjoyed the whole process or really kind of folk it's on the whole thing, it would, I think, made it a little bit better. I love that, and I think that especially if we're doing things that we know, we know I need to do for a business is very generous, but we don't necessarily like to do it. I always talk about how we make this more fun. How crank this more enjoyable, so maybe like, oh, you, you don't want to be looking at your bank account and balancing your checkbook and blah, blah, blah so it's such a dream, you never do it. Well, what if you went to your favorite spot and today you sat by the lake? You got your favorite beverage? What if you bribed yourself with doing something that you've been wanting to do to treat yourself after you did it? I'm all about bribes, I don't think that we're too old for them, so a lot of times I'll have my clients when they set, uh, set up a homework assignment or they set up a goal, I'll say what are you gonna do when you get there and I asked them, did you did you get that pedicure? Yeah, that massage did you go and get that pumpkin spice latte that you wanted and and knowing that to begin with is a really motivating piece so how do we make it more enjoyable? That's a really great question to ask that reminds me of our thoughts create our experiences I love that too our thoughts create our experiences fantastic resonated with me too because I was uh I was with somebody for like, nine years and it was it got two really toxic point when he started to say thing that this I'm almost happy like I'm almost there and it wasn't like I don't know if he's ever gotten there to be honest, but that tunnel vision I think really makes people stay in a potentially negative place for far too long well, it's, that thing of you know, the devil you know, than the devil you don't and I think that's why so many people tell themselves they can't leave their jobs, they can't they can't make that change like what if I do this and then it's gonna be just this batter it's gonna be worse so I might as well put up with this boyfriend a job or boss or situation or a roommate or, you know, whatever then and find something now, um, and I think it's changed to, I think, like just as as human beings. Ah, we're conditioned for that fight or flight sort of thing. So now, in twenty fourteen, obviously we're not being chased by tigers and needing to go out, get around food. But, like, you know, we are our bodies and our minds don't want change. That's where the resistance is coming from it that's where the vampire voices air coming from. And when you're the one initiating the change, I think it's one thing when the change happens to you, when you get sick, when you get fired, you know when something tremendous, someone close to you dies like something happens then and, you know, that's less vampire voices because you're just reacting and responding. But when it's you initiating the change your your body and mind, like, what do you do? You? Are you dumb? Like where? Safe here, where save and to me safe is a four letter word.
