  1. This was my first time watching the Monday morning jump start. I was especially encouraged by the discussion of overcoming the guardians at the gate. Well worth the short time it took. I will be watching these regularly. Thanks.

  2. The fear guardians for me, are conditioned responses from my life. They can spur you on in the respect that you're not going to let anything stop you. Move through it and then it will be past. "Nothing happens until something moves." Einstein.

  3. Jade and Marcella, this was GREAT! I am not sure who reads these posts, and I would like to recommend to everyone who is on the path of becoming a "Pro" read "Turning Pro" by Steven Pressfield and "The War of Art". These are both excellent discussions on what keep us in the "amateur" mode and from moving to the "Pro" mode. Both great companion pieces to this Jump Start discussion.

  4. Thank God I don’t have to go thru all this. I have Jesus! This is easier now.
