We all need a reminder sometimes, of just what makes us tick, that drives us to want to succeed at what we are working on.
The Art? Fear of failure? Pride?
In an ideal world it would always be about the Art. But, in truth we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to the point, where we as creatives, worry about everything. Of course we don’t intend to put pressure on ourselves, but when we worry about what we perceive to be others expectations of us, we do.
We need to focus on what we are doing and our path, but this is easier said than done. Constantly, we see what others have achieved and we start to question our own achievements, rather than being proud of ourselves and what we aim for in the future. Why should it take others to validate us to give us self worth? Of course it’s a lovely feeling to get praise now and again, but it’s NOT the most important thing in the world.
Think of all the reasons why you love what you do..I know it’s a simple philosophy and the best part is it works. Write them down and then read the list, you will be amazed at how many wonderful points you have. This can unlock your consciousness and remind you of all the amazing reasons you enjoy a career in the Arts.
Be bold and be kind 🎭
