Right now in the You Have A Voice Academy, we are focussing this week on the concept of COMPLETION.
An example I gave towards COMPLETION was the show I performed at Paris Cat Jazz Club in Melbourne on June 20th, 2019.
I flew to Melbourne to perform with a phenomenal band.
I sang a selection of original songs, jazz, and soul… And we loved it.
The steps to outwork from the beginning are many and varied.
From booking a date with the venue to rehearsing, booking flights, selecting songs…. All the way through to the end of the show where it’s complete!
Since I have been performing for a long time, the steps all feel quite natural and flow fairly well.
You would have similar scenarios for things you have accomplished repeatedly.
After a while, it becomes second nature, and you are moving through to completion regularly.
However, when the task feels new, daunting, complicated, stretching, risky, burdensome or uninspiring, it can cause a significant amount of procrastination and remain incomplete.
The energy around incomplete projects, ideas and plans can be extremely draining and stressful.
Overcoming all the belief patterns that keep you stuck is crucial to moving forward.
The first and most important point is to become AWARE. Be aware that you are habitually not following through and not completing things that you really do desire to complete. Self-sabotage is a powerful obstacle, and we can really get in the way of ourselves. Fear of success and fear of failure operate at these times, as well as a myriad of other competing beliefs.
As we become more and more conscious of these beliefs and work to shift, transform, and uplevel them, the things that used to block us, no longer can.
I recall a time during my Masters post-graduate work where I was STUCK. I could not seem to write or move forward. As I did the deeper work in myself, I discovered it was the GRIEF of losing Kerrie Biddell, my mentor, the producer of the vocals of my albums, and the source of my research, who had passed away that year. I could not continue the thesis until I grieved more. It was not “easy” to get through. However, I WAS able to COMPLETE once I had worked through those emotions.
Be aware of what is stopping you. It is usually more than laziness or lack of discipline. There are reasons behind those behaviours to be corrected.
Ideally, we do not want to feel any “dread” about anything. No matter what the task is. If you find yourself procrastinating beyond logic, check in with yourself and ask why.
You will feel infinitely better about absolutely everything when you complete.
Finish what you start.
Some projects may stretch over many years… that is ok. Get it done anyway. Complete. Get to that finish line.
I encourage you to consider joining this magnificent and powerful community that has begun… The You Have A Voice Academy. It is powerful, productive, inspiring, safe, and fun.
You will also be in an entirely different and much BETTER place in one year from now.
