As we progress solidly into 2014 this year is showing its nature. It’s a powerful year but it ain’t easy by the feel of it so far. Things are SHIFTing in my own process and in the process of people I interact with on a regular basis – family, friends, colleagues and clients. It’s kinda a ‘hold onto your hats’ energy as a changing of the tide happens.
I wrote of the death of my beloved Aunt Rose Mary last month. This month my boyfriend Darius, and his family, say goodbye to Nancy, their loving matriarch. Many of my clients are letting go in other various ways too – of jobs, geographies, relationships, identities, chronic emotions and body states, etc. And going through the heroic task to clarify and attract what’s next.
This ‘neutral zone’ can often involve the release or change of things that one is very accomplished at and the development of new expressions. And the sometimes awkward growth pains that can accompany learning or growth curves.
One strategy to develop your chops at something new is to do pro bono or lower fee work to gain experience, confidence and hone in on your ‘it’. In today’s article I share why this strategy is one of my favorites that I’ve employed repeatedly with great results.
