Clarity Changes Everything

Feeling stuck? That’s how many of us feel during this pandemic. It’s like doing the cha-cha: two steps forward and three steps back.

If this is where you are, take heart. What you need may not be more marketing or hustling. You may just need to shift your mindset a bit so you gain extra clarity and direction. The solution may have been in front of you all along.

Seeing through a different lens

It’s funny how clarity can come from someone you barely know. The reason is that you can’t see your blindspots but they can be really obvious to others.

Once they point out the obvious, you may want to kick yourself for not seeing it sooner. If you ask for help though, you need to do the following:

* Be open and ready for honest feedback
* Be willing to dig deep
* Be willing to make some changes

Finding the right beat

Once you identify what’s causing the issue, you can switch things up and breathe a bit. You need to find the right beat. It’s like trying to drum along to a song. You need to know when to come in and what the right tempo is. Otherwise, everything will be thrown off.

One thing I do know is this: Clarity changes everything. Once you have clarity, everything comes into focus. Your message and your mission become much clearer. You actually have clear goals – and you accomplish them!

If you or your child needs help moving forward, I’m offering some special deals on my virtual drum therapy packages. These weekly sessions include:

* 30 or 45 min. of customized drum therapy exercises
* Mentoring to help reset your mindset
* Encouragement and drumming affirmations
* Exercises to do at home

I have 2 or 3-month packages available. You’d need a drum on your end. If you don’t have one, I have djembes for sale for a reasonable price. These are shipped directly to you from the distributor.

Extra bonus for the 3-month program: It includes a free drum!

My drum therapy techniques are science-based and have been successfully used with all sorts of physical, emotional, and cognitive issues. Plus, the sessions are fun! The price of these programs is just a little more than regular drum lessons but the benefits are pretty amazing!

Contact me if you’d like more information.
