Muscle-Builders: Trait Work + Portal Practice
TRAIT WORK: Pinpointing the muscles of forward as only you know them.
Capture a modified trait that powers each muscle of creative growth: specificity, the elysium lens, embracing your portal, never settling for the first taste of success, unleashing your olympic spirit, testing by taste (vs. judging), and letting go.
PORTAL PRACTICE: We want to build the muscle of embracing our portal fully.
Taste any specific question.
Embrace your “portal” by capturing it with Creative Communication.
Taste the Creative Communication and “ride the slide” to your knowing.
