Thursdays are workhorse days. They are days to make up for all of the unexpected things that came up the first three days of the week.
That's why I'm going to suggest a little thrill for you.
You don't have to take me up on it today (after all, you're cranking things out today, aren't you?!)
But maybe you'll want to do it on Friday, when we like to lighten things up. Or maybe you'll mix it in with your weekend shenanigans.
In any case, here's your invitation:
Go find a stage. Any stage.
Here are some places where you can find stages pretty easily:
- high school auditoriums
- local theatre houses
- community center buildings
- outdoor ampitheatres
- movie theatres (they're not elevated, but that area at the front is pretty much a stage)
Then, at a time when the room is empty, walk up the stairs (or to the front, facing all those empty chairs) and face the audience. See their expectant faces.
Notice the full house.
Create the picture in your mind of you, there, sharing your life-changing message with power and authenticity.
Feel the yummy satisfaction of arriving there, showing up the way you know you can, and making that Impact.
Doesn't that feel awesome?!
Now, resolve to yourself that you will arrive another time – possibly on another stage – with those seats full of people and your heart and mind full of your message.
And you will deliver that message, for them.
Because it matters that you do – so very much.
Oh, please do let me know how it goes! And if you have more ideas for where we can all find practice stages, please share them in the comments! You'll be serving all of us.
Thank you, ParisLemon, for this exciting open stage image.
