There are 4 Big Myths people are believing right now during this season of COVID-19 that are holding you back from performance, fulfillment and success.

They are:

MYTH #1: You need to hustle your face off right now.

The first myth says you need to use every waking moment during this time to move forward with intensity and vigor —hustling your way to success.

The danger here is you miss out on the valuable insights, clarity and breakthrough that can only come in the space, in the quiet, in the stillness as Ryan Holiday says.

Instead, as I’ve been teaching my clients:

Less is more —now is the time to identify your “Big 3” priorities and delete the rest of the noise.

By focusing on less, you get “more”.

MYTH #2: You need to simply “be” and unplug right now.

You shouldn’t have a calendar right now, this is the time to “reset”, to let go, to align your chakras and find true North, right?

Well, not quite —because while I do agree that this season is a powerful time to go inward, the premise is flawed:

Without any structure, we lose ourselves.
Without any boundaries, we say yes to BS.
Without any discipline, distraction takes over.

MYTH #3: You can’t grow (or start) a business right now.

Maybe you were just getting started in your business —and now what?

Well, disruption just fast forwarded 5 years, and the freelance, entrepreneurial, remote economy is only here to stay and grow faster than ever.

Businesses that do not adapt will be left behind —but those who can deliver services virtually, fulfill on solving problems, are here to stay.

Imagine if you’d started two years ago? Now is the second best time to do so.

MYTH #4: Things will ultimately go back to “normal”.

My generation have now had two once-in-a-lifetime wake up calls: I graduated in 2008 in the middle of the financial crisis, and now this.

There are people who believe everything will go back to “normal” —and who are going to wait it out.

Personally, crisis and “wake up calls” have taught me that I am 100% responsible, and no never rely on the government, an employer, or the old system.

Everyone sells.

Everyone is looking to influence someone else.

Even those who claim that they don't are actually doing it in a different way.

And the truth is simple: if you care about what you do, the people you serve and how you can help them —it is your responsibility to get it in front of people.

Especially during these times when it's easy to buy into "myths" that no one is buying, it's hard to make a sale, no one wants to invest.

In life, we're told to follow a predictable, safe, and predictable path: go to school, get good grades, land a "safe" job with a nice salary and then check off the boxes of society.

There is no doubt this system "works" —but is it what you really want?

Personally, it took me a lot of challenges, crisis, getting laid off and doing terrible at school to realize the system is not for me and I was basically unemployable.

At that time, my sister gave me a book called The Art of Non Conformity by Chris Guillebeau, who is the latest guest on the Academy.

Chris is the New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup, The Happiness of Pursuit, and other books. Chris travels the world and writes for a small army of remarkable people at ChrisGuillebeau.com.

Follow him on Twitter (@chrisguillebeau), Instagram (@193countries), or listen to his daily podcast (Side Hustle School), at SideHustleSchool.com. His newest book, The Money Tree, is out now. 

During this conversation, you'll discover the best path to clarity during this time of challenge, what it means to be unemployable, why crisis can bring out the best in us, how Chris got started on this path to being a pioneer in the self-development space and much, much more.

Creativity is not optional, it's who you are. In the last 24 hours, you have been creative —in some shape, way or form. Because being creative is not about art, painting, drawing.

It’s a muscle that we all have, we all tap into, we can harness to bring something to life: a meal, a conversation, a connection, a business, a book, anything.

Enter the latest Resist Average Academy guest —Chase Jarvis. Chase Jarvis is an American artist, director, entrepreneur and author who co-founded the on-line educational platform Creative Live.

Chase consistently uses his voice to educate and inspire people to achieve their creative potential, and the author of the brand new book, Creative Calling: Establish a Daily Practice, Infuse Your World with Meaning, And Succeed in Work + Life.

Make no mistake: this episode has the potential to shift every part of your life, and I was absolutely blown away by how Chase showed up in a time where we are all dealing with stress, the unknown, and uncertainty.

You’re going to discover why the old definition of creativity is a myth, how to tap into this power, why fulfillment is found when you are doing what lights you up, how to use your curiosity to find your purpose and passion —and so much more.

Ladies and gentleman, please share this episode with your friends, and tag @chasejarvis and myself on Instagram: we want to hear from you.

Ep. 163 | Chase Jarvis Quotes

“Creativity is a muscle. It’s a habit not a skill. It’s a process not a product.” - Chase Jarvis

"Everyone is creative." - Chase Jarvis

"It's in creating small ways everyday that you understand you're able to create the life you want." - Chase Jarvis
