OYOS: Talent, Execution, Elite Mentality and Performance – all parts of the equation

We go again

Live update. I’m doing stuff that I have never done and it’s stressing me out.

I think this is the real testament to my elite personality/mentality comes in play, I won’t lie I’ve relied most my life on pure talent and excellence of understand my craft.

This, what I have been doing for years does not work here. I have to push, I have to press towards, I have to craft new ways and study things I’ve never studied before to overcome these hurdles.

When they said talent wasn’t everything they were actually right, I had no clue. I’ve never needed more than talent to create quality work or come up with quality ideas.

You see execution is a skill, people will tell you it’s hard work I don’t see hard work as much of a function. There are people with elite mentalities that start out purely with execution and then get the great ideas, I’m obviously on the other end of the spectrum but I’m coming u on a force I have never faced before. The need to execute beyond my station the need to execute and create quality work.

I know it sounds daft but I have only needed one or the other. But both? You’re telling me I have to execute and make it a high level? Okay now we’re stepping on uncharted territory.

See some people will think I’m mad for thinking this but I’m making this post just for those that know what I’m talking about and to myself for remembering the emotions in the moment for future purposes and to channel that & to release it so I can just get on with what I need to get on with Cos I sure am going to do it it’s just now I’ve caught on. If it helped you reading, great. We’re on this journey together.

A thought: On Overthinking

We go again,

I’ve noticed that people take time out of their day to really ponder on what they’d rather do with their time and feel they have a plan in place and a creative way of executing it. Then they pause and pause and pause until the lustre escapes them and all they’re left with are hollow thoughts of the idea.

Others will think about things all the time and I mean ALL THE TIME and they give up precious brain power to it and they pause, and pause and pause… until the pressure kicks in and they execute a rushed idea of the thought.

I relate so much to the second type, that’s how the typical “over thinker” operates. We will continually speak on the hardships of having the type of mind we have, so intelligent and so thorough and will make the excuse of lack of execution on lack of information.

That’s exactly how so many of us creatives operate, however I’ve come to the conclusion that this isn’t the case. I don’t see my thinking intensely as a crutch or a stifling ability now because I made a conscious shift in my mind. What I know now that I didn’t know before is thinking intensely through the process is valued, what isn’t is hesitation.

What is that hesitation? Fear of failure, fear of getting things wrong and fear of getting laughed at. What people need to learn, something I learned recently – a lesson of two parts – the people who are going to laugh will laugh regardless, good or bad, let them. And 2 that fear does nothing for you.

That type of hesitation is crippling and I’ll tell you why I think this because as high powered individuals creatives have the ability to do multiple tasks at once, problem solve, curate and gather information. These things can all be done during the execution process especially when the price to execute is zero.

What I’m saying in essence is there’s no such thing as overthinking just hesitation. Those type of hesitations kill momentum, as a creative a person should be able to problem solve along the way of the execution and create viable solutions. The ability to adjust while in the process is a coveted skill that really should be utilised more often and maybe the over-thinker will become the over-achiever because one isn’t afraid to fail.

To stop hesitating we need to start executing on a minor scale and make adjustments to get the ball rolling because we are great at thinking on our feet and problem solving and at the end of the day if this is what you want for yourself you won’t be able to stop thinking about it might as well put action to the thoughts. Even on the minor scale where the dream will only be part time in the beginning anyway.

The Muse and Their Ultimate Creative Power

We go again,

The muse is Something talked about and fantasised in the creative realm because it is the ultimate fantasy, sexual and non sexual a muse is what a person has who can somewhat direct ideals and drive them with the will of just existing.

A creative idea is easy to spark, reading a book, taking a walk, going for a drive, watching tv, eating food, being in the shower all of the above sparks creative idea or better still the thinking of nothing (living in the moment) is when an original thought decides to show itself.

This engagement is a rule the creative put on themselves. To live life as they are and to wait for true inspiration, but like in pain of passion this can be sparked like the fuse of a match with any substance that effects the pleasure Center of the mind. This can come from a person, for me personally. Women. (Not all) Women have this hold over me where I see them and an incredible flow of energy takes over and drives me to do more than I have done before, creating in a way I have not seen from myself the Queens of my mind.

4 have lived in my life so far affecting me in different ways separate from the other, their similarities lay in what they asked of me. [REDACTED]. That was the deal struck and we lived in heavenly bliss with one another I was creating and we had a wonderful time. This person though, the muse is a double edge sword of a kind. The muse is a person too – thoughts feeling emotions and separate personal experiences outside of the creative, so their minds can change & when their minds change so can yours. This is danger

They have the power to change ones mans and feed new ideas. Literally the power to change a core belief system or principle. A desire or an intent. What causes women to be able to drive a man to kill, go to war, sacrifice himself is the same tool used to drive a creative hungry for his/her muses approval.

This is the power vested in them by the creative, ‘share with me your lens because I like how you think and view things’ or ‘I like how you make me see things’ no doubt when you let someone effect you in this way calamity can be afoot.

Regardless a man will still fall for her anyway because she is beautiful, her mind is beautiful, she makes me more creative, more courageous, more expressive. There’s no other type of human in my life who has the level of freedom to walk in the palace of my mind like my muse does.

A human with the power to walk your mind? A human that can walk in and move things in your mind to change it and replace one thought with another
