What You Believe About Yourself is How Far You’ll Go
So much of creative life takes place under the surface.
In the internal thoughts, struggles, choices, beliefs. What we believe about ourselves is ultimately how far we’ll go. No matter if you are just starting to make a living at your art or can command six, seven or eight figures, choices about what you believe determine what you do. Ultimately, the question you must ask is: what do you want? In the foray of voices, demands, expectations, assumptions, doubts, opinions, what do you want?
This is your creative life. Your talent. You are ultimately the only one who can determine if what you are doing fulfills you as a creative soul. And you are also the only one who can determine if what you are receiving from your creative work is aligned with who you are.
What do you want from a creative project?
What do you believe about yourself in this project?
Where do you want to go?
Sometimes it takes a big, bold step to stand up to what’s in your way and stand up for yourself.
Whether it’s saying yes to your first public presentation or saying no to a major deal that just doesn’t feel right.
The why of what we do as is just as important as the what.
Be brave in your choices.
