Do you Celebrate your wins or take yourself out?



     Are you celebrating your wins? Do you know how to celebrate your wins? 

This was something I have always struggled with, but I have learned it is important.

Whenever you reach your goal or take an important step in the right direction it's a good practice to enjoy it. Do something for yourself and appreciate what you have done. Appreciate why you are doing it and what you have accomplished. Not only will this feel good, but it will also encourage and inspire you to do better in the future. In the back of your mind you are being rewarded for doing and accomplishing your tasks and goals.

     It doesn't have to be anything big or insane but sometimes even the little things do help to keep you going. A small token or even a small donation towards a larger goal can make a big impact.

     I think this is an area everyone struggles with, myself included. Try it out and see if it works, watch how it changes your motivation and inspiration.

Make your creativity a Priority!


 
 Clock in and Clock out!

    This new creative venture is your dream, your true passion, and yet we do not put a priority on it. Our main goal is to live  our life correct and full? So put some priorities on how you spend it.

    Every day we go to our "day job." You know that place that just covers the bills so we can do what we want to on the side. That job we show up on time, we work, we take our breaks, and we also clock out on time. For the most part at least, so why can't we follow the same structure for when we create and follow our passions?

-Start the day doing something you love, even it its just for a few minutes.
-Decide on what's really important and set a deadline to go into the studio. Ex. I am going into the studio from 8-9 tonight, the hardest part is getting started. After you start you'll find you get lost and don't want to stop
-Find something that gets you motivated and in the mood. I put on my headphones and they cut off the world. Do you like to stand or dance while you work? Do you play movies in the background? Go outside at a  park or the woods. Find a way to kick yourself in gear and get yourself moving.

Please let me know if this had helped or if you have any questions. Leave a comment and let me know if you need help with this topic.

Get lost in your True Imagination

 


     True imagination and the world of fantasy lies just behind the eyes of a child. In a special place that has been untouched by the ways of the world and the society that surrounds us. They don't have anything holding them back. No filters, they just say what's on their mind and come up with the most outrageous stories you have ever heard.

     As we get older we start getting rules imprinted into our minds. We are told how to hold a pencil, how to color inside the lines, how art should look or the right techniques to use. Little by little true creativity and imagination is chipped away and drilled out of us.

    Dig back into that childlike wonder forget about the way you should or are suppose to do and create without a specific agenda. Let your subconscious take over and have fun in every moment.

What happens if you DON'T take the Chance!




Are You afraid to put yourself out there or to ask?
Are you afraid to share your work?

Think about the people you are taking your impact away from!
Think about the possibilities that are being crushed because you were afraid!

For ME,

What if I never reached out to Mayse's family?
What if I never made the effort to visit when she was in the hospital?

I have been on this project for about 6 - 7 months now and I have made an impact on 4 families. I started off rough and made some mistakes or maybe just figuring the plan out. The current legs of the project were created in the last 3 months that has truly connected with those 4 families. And I keep thinking that this is only the beginning.

I am so thankful that I stepped up and reached out and I am going to continue to reach out to as many people as I can.

Don't be afraid to ask for help or opinions!
Don't be afraid to put yourself out there!
Don't be afraid to share your genius with the world!
