Andrea Sampson - "Step into the idea you have."

tips from podcast guests Feb 04, 2022

Insight and inspiration for flying higher in the difference only you can make from guests who have appeared on Creative on Purpose Live.

This week's wisdom comes from a conversation with Andrea Sampson, founder of Talk Boutique. Tune into the entire conversation here.

[ANDREA] "We all have ideas that can create an impact in this world and we often don't take the time to articulate those ideas. We think they're not important or we think that somebody else has already done them or we think that that it's a small thing."

"But what I've come to know really, really clearly is that while there are so many things out there in the world that are already being done, each one of us has our own unique specific thing that we can offer, whatever that thing is, and to look at it differently. And that will help. That will help in a broader way."

"We don't always know the impact we create and we're not meant to. It's not really important that we know. It's important that you step into the idea that you have. And that is really who you are."

"Now, that's a big idea so what I want you to do is to make it smaller and just think about what is the topic that you want to impact and what is your unique 'how' in activating that. And then the 'why?' You're doing it. What is the purpose? What is the impact that you could create if you were to do that how with that what?"

"I  just kind of gave you a little bit of framework. We use this a lot with our speakers. It's a 'what, how, why' framework. But it starts with the 'what.' The topic goes to the 'how.' The process. That's you. That's all you. And then it ends with the 'why.'"

"And I thought that would be helpful for people to maybe just define the idea that they want to get out in the world and to take one or two steps towards it."

[SCOTT] "Love it. Define and deliver the difference only you can make. That's awesome.'" 

Andrea delivered a powerful call to embrace the uniqueness of how you do what you do and why you do it and take a small step into possibility with it. How might checking in with your idiosyncratic approach to the difference only you can make help you step into your potential with greater focus, boldness, and discipline today?
