  In this episode, we discuss the importance of embracing your inner weirdo and taking risks with your creativity and ideas. We explore the origins of the word "weird" and how it relates to fate and destiny. We also talk about the power of having a contrasting point of view and the obstacles of fear and negative self-talk. Tune in to learn how to challenge your fears and surround yourself with a supportive community to unlock your full creative potential.   The word "weird" originally meant fate, destiny, or magic and should be embraced. To find your inner weirdo, you need to move beyond influences and not stay derivative. Successful ideas need to have a contrasting point of view from what came before. Fear is a big obstacle in owning your true point of view and creativity. Recognize that not all thoughts and opinions are true or need to be believed. Challenge fearful thoughts by asking, "What's the worst that can happen?" and "Can I handle that?" Surround yourself with people who support you and your point of view to take risks and embrace your inner weirdo.   Miriam Schulman is an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where she helps other artists learn how to profit from their passion or become better artists.

John Mitchell is the guest on the podcast and shares his story about how he discovered the secret to success in the book Think and Grow Rich. John had two main goals in life - to make enough money to not have to work and to find the woman of his dreams - but felt like he was falling short of both of these goals at age 50. John stumbled upon the book Think and Grow Rich and was intrigued by the idea that there was a secret to success, but was disappointed that the book only gave half of the secret. He was determined to figure out the other half of the secret and a way to apply it to his life, and spent two months immersing himself in the book. Through this process, John figured out the full secret and a twelve-minute technique to apply it. He started using this technique and quickly saw his income start doubling and doubling until he was netting five million dollars a year - twenty-five times more than he'd ever made before. John was fascinated by the results and realized that by taking two key scientific principles from the book and applying them to his life, he was able to materially impact his outcomes. The book Think and Grow Rich has been read by over 100 million people, and John encourages listeners to check it out if they want to transform their own lives and achieve greater success.
