Do you want to bring forth your most courageous, loving and creative self?
Then begin creating your Solo Show!
Most people think in reverse. They feel like they have to “fix” themselves and their lives before taking the plunge to write a Solo Show. This isn’t the case. In fact it’s the opposite! Writing a Solo Show will “fix” you and teach you how to live. Engage the pillars to writing a Solo Show and you learn the pillars to leading a fulfilling life.
One: Say yes and start today
Saying yes to the Solo Show today aligns you with the power of the now. Forget about tomorrow or yesterday. Say yes today. Engage in the holy moment -the only place where life is lived. By saying yes you are also affirming that you are whole and complete now, perfectly capable of undertaking this project. Mountains will move just by saying yes! This is usually one of the most difficult and rewarding steps.
Two: Create a conscious vision and align
Spend time writing out a conscious vision and intention for your show. This should not look like a list of wants from the ego. A better list is how you want to change; how you want to serve the world and share your gifts. The clarity and affirmation not only creates energy that bolsters and supports, but it aligns your work with a higher purpose.
Three: Get support.
You will have to find a mentor to support you in this big project. Hire a coach. Put money behind the project. This is critical! Human beings are social beings. One of the main reasons people can’t manifest their own personal creative work is because they feel alone and isolated. They become victims of their own self doubt and fear. You must have support to hold you accountable and pull you through the doors kicking and screaming!
Four: Take action
Creating your Solo Show takes you from thoughts to action. The Dali Lama says that life is about compassion action. As an artist I believe in creative action. Don’t get caught up in perfectionism and overthinking. Work through your fears. Start small. But insist on taking action everyday. Manifest your creative projects. Don’t let them die inside of you.
Five: Don’t abandon yourself
When you write a Solo Show you will meet threshold points that will be hard to push through whether it’s your own internal fear or an external challenge that’s blocking your way. Stay the course. Don’t abandon yourself. You will eventually break through. This will be the greatest lesson of all. Keeping moving toward your creative vision. It will take you to freedom, trust and faith. Completion is powerful. Don’t settle for anything less.
Six: Do the work behind the work.
Creating a Solo Show will force you to take a look at yourself and your life. You will have to work through your limited thinking, your fears and doubts. You will have to find the gold, the treasures that lie within for your story to be told. You will grow and change doing “the work behind the work.” The most important work that we have to do is within ourselves. Some people meditate. Some people read a book. Some people write Solo shows!
Seven: You must share with the world.
You’re not small. Your work is not small. Get it out of the drawer and into the world.
Be willing to be seen. Throw yourself out for fodder and laugh at the all the judgments that come from those who would never dare put themselves out there. Be free. Your freedom will set them free. (or not!)
Creating a Sols Show takes you through the important lessons of leading a fulfilling life.
