What we’re talking about today is often a #sbd dream killer.

(#sbd = silent but deadly. Usually used to describe farts, but equally applicable to habitual mental patterns that limit your experience of success and happiness in life.)

This particular thought pattern often lingers in our minds and gets triggered when we compare ourselves to others. Sadly, it also leads to chronic creative wuss outs.

That’s when you never actually create anything because you’re too afraid it’s all been done before. The thought loop usually goes something like this…

“Whenever I see someone doing the same thing I want to do — it takes me down! It’s a confirmation there’s nothing unique or original about me or my ideas. I’m a fraud. And, they’re all light years ahead of me. What’s the use in trying anyway? It’s all been done already.”

Sound familiar?

If you’re human, it should. No matter how confident, forward-moving or creative you are, we’ve all had those kinds of #sbd thoughts at some point.

And, the more you peel back the layers in any industry, the more you start to feel like everyone is just doing the same ol’ shizz over and over and over.

But have no fear because in today’s MarieTV, we’ve got five cures for the “It’s All Been Done Before” Funk.

This is a really, really important episode for you to watch. Especially if you’re a big-hearted creative putting anything out into the world. Why? Because…

You matter.

Your ideas matter.

Your point of view matters.

And if you don’t express it and work every day to share your unique gifts, the world has lost something truly irreplaceable.

Now, I’d love to hear from you. Which one of these tips most resonates with you, and why? Or, what do you do to get yourself out of the “it’s all been done before” funk?

Remember that tens of thousands of ambitious, creative souls come here each week for inspiration and support so share with as much detail as you can below. You just never know if your share is one that can truly help another person break through.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. may be deleted as they can come across as spammy.

Thanks in advance for adding to the conversation and making this corner of the Universe absolutely amazing.

All my love,
