“If you hear a voice within you say
‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint
and that voice will be silenced.”
– Vincent Van Gogh
Sometimes when I use sporting analogies, people who are not into sport don’t like it.
Fair enough – but I AM into sport… 🙂
My own experience has shown me that you can glean insights from any field even if you’re not into them. I’m guessing that’s why I’m very interested in ‘performance’ in general – be it business, sport, music, sales, cooking, writing, tiddlywinks…. 🙂
In my podcast this week, the title is Learning From Golf (Even If You Don’t Like It). In it I share some insights from my own work in that area with top players. The insights are directly relevant to anyone interested in bringing more clarity, success and flow into their lives.
What’s funny to me is that the voice inside that doesn’t ‘like’ certain things is usually the main blocker to better performance in all fields.
Why? Because we believe what it says.
So, what if we didn’t listen to it as much this week?
What if we caught it whenever it didn’t like something, and instead explored with an open mind the very thing it wanted us to ignore?
What if we did as the bold Vincent suggested and just did the thing our inner voice was telling us we can’t do?
At the very least, what will happen is an increased awareness of just how much it’s narrating and influencing our lives.
And that for many can often be a major surprise and indeed the catalyst to great things.
