As a muse, you bring art to the world simply by existing. You are a visionary, collaborator, and original thinker who loves to co-create. You put your stamp of beauty on the world and bestow it upon everyone in your presence. Your existence is a living work of art and all of the world is your canvas. Others witness the beauty that inspires you and it leads them to discoveries within themselves.
As a leader or team member, you have a unique, vibrant, and empathetic spirit that attracts others to your presence. Your commitment to co-creating breathes new possibility into thoughts and ideas. Your playful, warm, and engaging sense of humor creates a culture of freedom, fun, and creativity that inspires innovation without letting the atmosphere become “too serious”. You have a natural ability for identifying norms, patterns, values, and relationships, connecting and engaging through your ability to read the room and staying in tune with the energy of the team. You know when this energy needs to shift in order for an endeavor to be successful.
Your vitality inspires those around you to bring their best selves forward and create what might have been impossible without your inspiration. Because you are such an inspirational presence, you are an excellent collaborator and naturally elevate everyone on your team, helping the group to exceed expectations and reach new heights of achievement. You encourage others to think outside the box.
So, before you read the shadow side, I invite you to see this as an opportunity for growth. Feedback is often not your friend as your inner voice can tell you that it is criticism meant to box you in or telling you that your freethinking is flawed, but this is not so. Your intentions are pure, yet they can create discord in your collaboration.
When the muse is not serving you to be your best, your inspirational ability to think freely and act spontaneously can be misinterpreted as a disregard for standards and rules of operation. Within the workplace, there may be certain procedures or traditional ways of doing things that others around you hold on to, especially if they are not as comfortable with creativity as you are. It is important to remember that while your ability to push boundaries can elevate the projects you work on and inspire others to reach new heights, not everyone will be comfortable jumping into these uncharted waters, and it is best to be patient with them rather than seeing them as an impediment to your progress.
