Books Shape The Mind Like I Twist A Balloon

Resistance is futile, I will shape it

A writer’s ideas bend, contort, and transform concepts and beliefs before my eyes. I stand before an audience transforming the ordinary balloon into the extraordinary. A balloon may resist me, but I will prevail and transform it into a doll. My brain resists new ideas that the author vows will make me better.

In the War of Art book,  I’ve learned not to give in to resistance but to beat it down with a stick. I do not quit when a balloon breaks. I add another in its place and continue on my way.

I learned early in my career to surround myself with the best entertainers available to me. Their energy and knowledge drove me to succeed. In Today We Are Rich, I knew that a good loop needs to have rocket fuel to keep the passion going. I need not a degree in Rocket Science to achieve this but to surround myself with positive influence and toss out the negative and naysayers that hold me back.

I am now reading,  Branding Your: How to Use Social Media to Invent or Reinvent Yourself, which by the way, has made a dimple in my brain.  Yet, I am an artist who looks at a new balloon and sees its potential for what it can be.  So, as I read these words so carefully crafted, I treat them like a new balloon.  Right now, I do not know what to do with this found knowledge, but I am sure my subconscious, guided by a muse, will tell me what to do with that newfound balloon.
