You Are Not Alone - Pierre Wolfer

Clear-minded Creativity is possible, if you’re willing to work at it. The fact is though, it’s a work in progress, not a permanent state of mind.

Most importantly though, and here is the real secret to being a Clear-Minded Creative – you cannot do it alone. Neither can I, or anyone else.

Clear-Minded Creatives share what they learn, because they want to help their community evolve and grow.

Clear-Minded Creatives know that people are everything. People are also fragile, difficult, desperate and amazing. They are the fabric that connects the world. People are to be cherished, nourished and encouraged.

Without other people, we are nothing. I’ve learnt this the hard way, because for too long I tried to do everything on my own, and it wasn’t a life worth living.

The secret is – you need to ask for and be willing to receive help. It’s such a huge relief to know that I can ask for help and that the help is there, and that it really does make things 100 times better.

So if you take one message from this blog, make it this:

You can’t do it alone.

  1. Thanks Milo – we are glad to have you leading the way! And a good reminder we can’t do it on our own.

    Are you suggesting friendship, collaborating, outsourcing, teamwork, inspiring each other, serving each other, working for each other, sharing with each other or all of the above? I hope this isn’t a Sethism subject to our own interpretation but I will presume it is. lol
