Did You Experience Creator’s Block?

I had "creator's block" - ever experienced this?


If you follow my IG stories (and you should... I'm way more active there than my feed at times), I talked about having photo block last week.

For weeks, I kept trying to take pictures and I liked none of them!

I kept trying to write captions, and none of them made sense.

Creator's Block!

You know what I did?

1. Gave myself permission to not post and didn't feel a lick of guilt about it. Social media is a tool I use - but its not the only tool. And it doesn't ruley life. So, while I was not posting, I was focusing on servicing elsewhere.

2. I kept taking pictures and I kept writing. The amount of pictures I have taken in the last 2 weeks that will never see the light of day is just ridiculous πŸ˜‚ I posted some of the bts in my stories. But when you find yourself uninspired or unmotivated the last thing you should so is give up. An object in motion stays in motion. The only way you fail is if you quit. So, even though nothing was making sense, I still kept myself in the habit of creation because eventually, something was gonna work. Which leads me to 3.

3. I trusted that it would pass. I didn't wallow in 'woe is me' 'whats wrong with me' 'why is this not working' energy. That's never am empowering place to begin the conversation. Instead, i just kept living my life, knowing that at some point my Creator's Block would go away.

And it did! Im feeling more inspired and more creative (at least this week πŸ˜‚).

If you're fortunate enough to use social media to show up, lend your voice, serve people, inspire, motivate, etc... Then do that because THAT is exactly whats available to you. Facebook, Instagram, tiktok, YouTube, etc... These are not weapons formed against you!

We use them because they allow us to build platforms and impact people. Sometimes we need a minute because we are exhausted or unmotivated or we just dont feel like it. I get that. When that happens, learn to rest. But don't quit. Someone is probably on their knees praying for you to show up, say what youre supposed to say, do what youre supposed to do.

Happy Creating! πŸ€—

Don’t Be Surprised If…

Something I tell my clients all the time...


Dont be surprised by your success. Be humble. Be grateful. But please please please dont be surprised. Here's what I mean...

Sometimes we say things like "omg i cant believe this happened to me!" or "i dont know how I got here" - really?! 'Cause I could have sworn 3 months ago this is exactly what you wanted and we had a whole conversation on what you were going to do so that it actually comes to pass... πŸ€”πŸ˜‚

No judgement lol - I have been there too. Definitely said those things. Thankfully I have a coach who caught it quickly and made me reframe.

Because saying you dont know how something so great manifested is disempowering.

It's actually one of the worst things you can do when you achieve a level of success and then tell yourself you don't know how it happened!

Success is not happenstance. Success is not random. Success is planned for, prayed for, etc.

Saying you don't know how it happened discounts everything you did leading up to it.

     You discount your prayers.
     You discount your intentions.
     You discount your work.

You wanted this. You asked for this. You showed up this! You put in time and effort for this! So how you gon' act like it just happened all will nilly?

So... Heres a quick lesson on the universal law of cause and effect.

YOU always operate at the level of cause, what you experience is the effect. In other words, you reap what you sow. In other other words, every action has an equal opposite reaction.

Every thought, every intention, every action that comes from you will ripple into something. You get to choose what that something is based on the said thoughts, actions, and intentions.

When you set your sights on achieving something great, and then you show up for it in the way you should... Lets not pretend we didn't play an active role in that process!

And here's why this is important - when you can get behind the belief that you are in fact co-creating your life, and you see it in real time, and you acknowledge it in real time then you learn to recognize just how powerful of a being you truly are. God did not make you by accident. He didnt give you the desire just 'cause. Trust it. ❀️

The Power of Play

My secret superpower (and its probably one of yours too, so listen up!)

Play. Play is very powerful for me. And probably is for you too! Just gotta lean in.

According to Scientific American, fun and laughter release endorphins, happy hormones which counteract cortisol.

Basically, fun counteracts stress, one of the biggest inhibitors of cognitive performance.

For adults it helps you relax, be more creative, solve problems easier and more effectively, etc.

And for me personally, I find myself more in the flow when I am just having fun!

Things are easier.
I trust God more.
I trust myself more.
I manifest faster.
I help more people.
I make more money.
Opportunities pop up "out of nowhere"
I can rest in all the success.
And it all just feels good.

Yes! Its great to have a concrete strategy and to learn how to follow through and execute. Please, for the love of all things #entrepreneurial - execute!

Its commendable to be disciplined with your time and hustle when necessary. Because showing up is requires.

But honestly, if being in your business isnt fun, why are you even doing it?

Play is magnetic.
Play feels like alignment.
Play is indicative of flow.

Don't wind yourself up so tight from all of the ins and outs of your to-to list.

Step away from the laptop when technology isn't going your way. Take a nap if you can't slow your mind down enough to stop spiraling in doubt and negative self talk. Go for a walk, get some sun, play with puppies... Do whatever you need to do to find a point of access!

Live life to the full... Including the fullness of fun πŸ€ΈπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€ΈπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ€ΈπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Have some of that today, will ya?

#Affirmation: The more fun I have, the more successful I am.

You Were Created to Create

Stop consuming. Start creating.

In the 2020s there is an overwhelming amount of information available to us...and I think we over consume it.

Our desire to learn is a noble one - you do have to learn a thing or two to show up with excellence. But as entrepreneurs, we do it with this intention that we need to learn EVERYTHING about a particular something before we make a move. However, overconsumption leads to overthinking.

And we all know how your overthinking is holding you back. Analysis paralysis ain't it, friend.

Btw, there is NO other occupation that does this by the way. Surgeons don't learn every single thing about surgery before they start practicing. They learn new things through experience - the human body is complex. Lawyers don't memorize every single law before they make their first court appearance. It's impossible, legalities are complex.

Entrepreneurship...also complex!

You are NEVER going to know everything. Doesn't work that way.

I have no idea where this fear based framework comes in play as Entrepreneurs because it literally shows up no where else in life. So let's just stop that.

Here's what I do:
I choose to make some sort of decision with 70% of the information. The rest of the 30% is a combination of divine guidance, intuition, inspired action that will bring further clarity. I don't give myself time to overthink. Because

    1. I don't have time for that.
    2. Because I don't want to get into a habit that says I can't trust myself to make my own life's choices.

So, this is me saying...you know enough to begin today! You know enough to make moves today. You know know enough to create...and remember you were created to do so!

So, what are you creating? I wanna see it! Don't be shy! Share with me down below!

Success Is Inevitable…

Certainty plays a big role in your 2021. Let me explain.

If you move into this new year, this new season, this new area with a mindset that says your success is merely a maybe, there is a high probability that you won't achieve much. There's not much to show up for there. Who wants to show up for a maybe?!? Maybe this will work, maybe it won't. That's not very motivating. Ew.

But if you knew for certain that all your work, all your faith, all your effort, all your intention was absolutely 100% going to produce the outcomes you wanted, you're light a little more πŸ”₯ under your booty. Your show up for that, would you not?

And so it is with that level of certainty that you must make moves in the new year. That level of certainty makes you want to take inspired action. That level of certainty makes you want trust the process. That level of certainty leads to new possibilities, new ideas, new opportunities. Greater impact. Greater platform. Greater income. Whatever it is you're looking to expand into.

The mind is a powerful thing - we spend far too much time focusing on fears and lies from the pits of the underground! These don't actually serve you, fyi. All it does is give you an excuse to stay small, living a small life, doing small level things. Which would be fine if you didn't actually want more for yourself.

And I know you do! You can't fool me!

And so...let's flip the script. Write down what you want. Write down 10 things you feel led to do that will move you in the right direction (do you need to read a book, take a class, hire a coach, move to a new city, etc).

Then you make the decision today to do those things! Commit to showing up for it because if you know you are CERTAIN that when you do, success is inevitable!

Give yourself that gift today!

I'm always cheering you on!

xx, Dr. TT
