When you question your value and start to wonder why you bother…
When you doubt your ability and consider giving up the fight…
When you lose your focus and can’t seem to find your way in the dark…
If the answer is no, then you have some work to do. Maybe some internal work before you get to the act of creating. Some processing of the core issue before you try to tackle the practical.
This is the year of the creative, the enthusiast, the artist.
Be bold. Be brave. Be insanely great.
Day 3 of Project 365: Texture Series
Today’s background is an image I shot of a canvas painted over 7 years ago by my talented younger brother. He is an artist. He’s also an engineer. I imagine he uses his vision as an artist to work out engineering problems. Personally I’d love to see him create more art with the paintbrush. But all that really matters is whether each of us can answer this question in the affirmative.
It doesn’t matter if I think you’re brave, because deep down you know when you’re really pushing your own limits. Same goes for me. What you think may look to be brave from the outside, may be easier than you think. But other things you find easy may be a mountain for me to climb. We all have different strengths that equip us to fight the battles we need to fight. Are you ready to get brave this year? Isn’t it time?
Want a practical way to find your strengths and pick your battles? Check out StrengthsFinder 2.0. I recently re-took the test they offer when you buy the book and was amazed at the results. I’ll share more later, but it’s all part of an alpha test called Class 0 that I was chosen to participate in with John Saddington at tentblogger. It’s already amazing and we haven’t even met in person for the first time.
So what’s the truth? Has your art been brave enough?
