I'm NOT Crazy, I'm Creative AND Multi Passionate
Understanding your Personality Type
Do you get Stuck in Planning
Planning is an essential part of success, without it, your dreams are not going to show up and you will face disappointment. But what if you are the type of person who gets stuck in the planning, never feeling ready to take action?
For this, I turned my attention to the Enneagram and when I considered how a 5 AND an NP naturally are, the rules for planning shifted big time!
Check out the article on Why INTP, INTJ & Enneagram 5 Types “Don’t Feel Ready” to Act and see if any of this resonates with you. This could be a huge game changer for you, it was for me.
Start More Projects than you Finish?
Here’s something I found on Minette Riordan’s site that sounded encouraging, “I do believe that we need to finish some of our projects in order to feel a sense of accomplishment and self-satisfaction. We also need to finish projects if we want to make money in our business. But I also believe we can do a better job of being okay with letting projects go and not holding onto projects that seem exciting at first but we quickly get bored with.”
For me, letting go of projects that no longer interested me was key. But we live in a Get It Done society that doesn’t always sit well with the creative type that I have come to know and love. I may not need to change, but that doesn’t mean I have to stay stuck.
Do you Crave the Inspiration of Something New?
Sure, I could “feel” better if I finished more projects, but that doesn’t feed that other side of me that needs variety and novelty. Choosing my battles and letting go of the “need” to win the war was far more appealing and important for me.
I also recommend looking into your personality type to gain a deeper understanding of what might be going on. This understanding can lead you to some fabulous creative solutions.
You have everything you need to thrive in this world. Take the time to rediscover your gifts and learn how to apply them towards your own goals, dreams and plans.
