We all spin our tires. We all get bogged down with fear or rejection or the “reality” of what it means to pursue a creative career. It can be nasty. It can be incredibly discouraging when you look at the big picture, when you have 385 pages to edit. When you are just punching out keys to try to make your project move forward.
Inspiration isn’t always at hand. Previously great ideas don’t always pick up and soar.
If you’re feeling negative about pursuing the creative arts, stop what you are doing and start a new project.
Not forever. The hard work has to happen at some point, but it will seem a lot easier when you are gliding on the high of creation.
Because all the work is just work. But creating, that’s divine. That is the awesome and it is supposed to be.
Be excited about creating, even if its a challenge. Even if you’re not sure where its going to take you. Have fun with it! That is the point! Not the marketing plan or the sales charts or the end user. The creating.
Keep that in mind and you’ll find yourself succeeding every day.
