The Daily Scroll: A Mentorship Recap - December 11th, 2020 Show Notes

Kay:

Hey, Hey, there Questers, and welcome back. Happy Friday! It's December 11th, as we inch towards the end of 2020, and this is episode 245. We have a short but sweet quote for you today by Patsy Cline and she says, “If you can't do it with feeling, don't.”

Shi:

A classic quote from a classic country artist lady. Patsy Cline, "I want to go walking after midnight." I had a greatest hits album in high school somehow. Her song was in some movie or something and then I just fell in love with her. So, she is an amazing classic country star. She did everything with a lot of feelings. So, this is a quote is not surprising, but it is good advice if you can't do it with feeling then don't - because that mundane, bland existence is what so many of us don't want, but end up getting comfortable with. And this is just a good reminder to have some emotion and feeling.


Kay:

I think that this really, I think, speaks to the acts of creation - be it creating art or creating love or creating a relationship or creating a business. Well, if you can't do that with feeling then don't. It's like one of the differentiating factors of humans. Animals live on autopilot. The animal eats the grass, the animal poops the grass, the animal has the cycle and then it dies. I'm not saying that they don't have feelings and emotions but what I'm saying is that humans have this ability to utilize emotion for the act of creation and it's when we put the emotion into that creative act that we really find cool fulfillment around what it is that we're doing-especially if that emotion is positive.


Shi:

Steve Jobs talks about if you're not crazy about it, don't do it because it will drive you crazy. If you don't have that level of just investment, that feeling, that path he's talking about here, it's not worth it. So, doing whatever it is that you do, you've got to find the pieces of it that you love and try to accelerate and grow those pieces. Otherwise, try and find something else because just having that kind of gray going through the motions isn't, I think, a reality that most of us want to live or create. Certainly not the kind of people who are listening to a podcast like this. But really leaning into that - do it with emotion. Kay was just talking about how we want to bring that level of energetic signature to whatever it is that we're doing to help the universe know, “I like this,” or “I want more of this.” So often our feeling goes in the opposite direction and we train ourselves to feel, I don't like this but that's letting the universe know, “okay, we'll bring more of that to you.”


Kay:

Well, we hope that you guys feel quite a bit of emotion come through here in the Mentorship Quest. I mean, this is something we do with a lot of feeling and energy and intention because we love it, and we utilize this emotion in the act of creation. For this particular podcast, (I think any artist you'll see this happen), if it's a speaker on the stage, the speaker on the stage that says, "You can do it," versus the speaker on the stage, that says, "You can do it!" There's a difference in those two things. When you do it with that feeling, not only is it better for the recipient, it's also better for the person who's giving it. Now, I think we've talked about Tony Robbins in every single episode of this week's Mentorship Quest. So, he is the side mentor for the week.


Shi:

I think they just got done doing Date with Destiny.


Kay:

Fabulous. Well, here we are. So, Tony Robbins tells the story about his dear friend, Steve Wynn of the Wynn Casinos. Steve brings him over to see this painting at his house and he's like, “Dude, I paid like a billion dollars for this painting, God, yes this is the best painting ever.” Tony gets in and it's a painting of a red square and he's like, “What the heck? This isn't that interesting, I don't get it,” but that's Steve Wynn…


Shi:

Turn it around and it's like a Rampart, and one of like only a few in the world and it's just so beautiful to him and he loves it.


Kay:

It's like every brushstroke has a motion. Tony's like, it's a red square, but they would have never sold for the billions of dollars had the artist not done it with feeling.


Shi:

Oh, I love that. When we say artist, we don't necessarily mean the arts. You think about the bartender who just serves a drink versus the one who does the flair and the thing. That's emoting feeling, and I bet you can even think of a cashier who is doing it with feeling.


Kay:

Or an engineer who's designing a bridge using math... That's their strength, it's what they want to do and it's art for them.


Shi:

Yeah.


Kay:

It's creation.


Shi:

Yeah. Or leaders who just love to see a team grow and ignite are facilitators. There are so many different ways that we express our artistry so don't get hung up on thinking that that's just for those in that artsy creative space. But just to remind you here to wrap up your Friday, what Patsy Cline tells you is, "If you can't do it with feeling, don't."


Kay:

Alrighty, gang, that means today is a #FriYay feeling quest. We want you to make the decision right here, right now. Decide to act with intention in what you do this weekend. Feel out what feels good for you. We're in a little bit of a weird spot between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, now is the time to lean in and find out how fulfilling acting with feeling can really be. Are you ready?


Kay and Shi:

Let's quest!
