Scared to Death to Be An Idiot

Sucker

Here’s what I’m dealing with. You might be too.

I’m terrified that I’m wrong.

Not wrong in a little way, like the typos that litter this site, but wrong in a BIG way. I’m worried what I fundamentally believe about my Self and my world is just downright crazy. And I’m nervous everybody else is in on the joke, except me.

What if? It’s an interesting question to ask yourself.

The Silly Things I Do

Arise Your Innerpreneur by listening to my voice, and looking at my words and images for 12 minutes approx.

\’\’

Back in April I created this presentation for the 2010 SHiFT conference in Lisbon, Portugal. The event is a yearly discussion in Lisbon on social and human ideas in technology.

Don’t ask me why it took ’till now to publish it. Some silly business about feeling shame over my creations. Oh, the silly things I do.

Make Me Work For It

\’\’I’ve always liked the idea of burlesque. The slow tease. The gradual peeling away of layers. The art of making ’em wait for it.

Your marketing, especially your web presence, could be seen as a soul strip-tease. Each time you create for it’s purpose you reveal a bit more about your Self.

Cultural Creatives are attracted to layers. We enjoy having our minds challenged. We don’t want it all at once. We want it to take time for the truth underneath to be revealed.

Why not use this concept in your advertising messages? Layer them. Don’t make it easy. Get us curious about you. Make us work for it. We’ll like you all the more because of it.

John Miles: May 2010 Innerpreneur Spotlight

I am:

What my mind is focused on. I become it.

My passion is for:

My family, first and foremost. I love playing lacrosse with my son, witnessing my daughter’s growth and expansion, and dining or just generally being with my wife.

Beyond family, my passions expand toward the general development of consciousness in those around me, and learning so that I can share my knowledge with the community. As a function of those efforts, my passions lead to growing my business positively and leading by example, purifying the mind, helping others succeed in their endeavors, mountain biking, education, and prison reform.

My business helps you:

To effectively and authentically communicate who you are and how you help in the crowded online marketplace. When we get a chance to dig deeply into our clients’ objectives, ideas, and opportunities, then translate those effectively online, it is not uncommon for magic to happen in terms of the results it brings.

My biggest challenge is:

Deciding what opportunities to pursue to open up a state of genuine and sustained abundance. I am currently working on this one ardently.

I make things different each day by:

Being open to infinite possibilities and helping in anyway that I can.

I have lots of ideas about:

Conscious capitalism, prison and education reform, and certainly innerpreneurship.

My advice is:

Not to take anyone’s free advice. (Just kidding.)

To be true to your “true North”. Whatever that is. Ignore the voices that say “you can’t” for this reason or that. You will encounter a lot of those, so stay vigilant and patient.

Always remember your business is a valuable tool for your personal development. We forget this, but it is almost as valuable as family in terms of teaching us about ourselves. Keep on working and keep growing.

I am a connoisseur of fine quotes so my favorite changes weekly. This week it is:

“People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy.” – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990

Guilty As Hell That We Can’t Do More

Guilty
\’\’Why do we insist upon trying to do it all, and then beating ourselves up when we fall short of perfection?

The Guilt

It’s an icky feeling when we feel The Guilt. The Guilt arises when we can’t do all the things we would like to do, or the people around us would like us to do. We feel like we don’t care enough.

The List

But the thing undone is just one more thing on The List. The List that keeps getting added to. The List that never ends.

The Truth

When we feel The Guilt of doing too little, The Truth is we’re really trying to do too much. And The Truth is we’re trying to do too much because we want to, we love to, and, in some ways, we have to, for our Self.

It’d be kinda sweet if it weren’t so twisted.

A Mantra for The Guilt

I am enough
I do enough
I have enough
