Today – not tomorrow
As artists, our greatest obstacles come from within. (tweet this)
Steven Pressfield calls it Resistance. Seth Godin – the lizard brain. Eckhart Tolle – the ego.
Regardless of its name, the end result of embracing it is always the same:
A whole lot of bullshit – not enough creating.
It’s time for the bullshit to stop
We need to plant our proverbial flags and say “fuck the struggle – this is my art.”
But this can’t just be an act of verbal defiance or some paper-thin manifesto for change that disintegrates once it hits open air.
This is a level of commitment to our art that goes beyond talk and into action.
This is finding the courage to create right now instead of waiting for permission to do so.
This is discovering the strength and conviction needed to take control of what is rightfully ours.
This is making our own maps … and burning the rest.
It starts with a choice:
We can be an artist who waits, suffocating under the weight of fear and self doubt.
We can be an artist who relentlessly hunts for our own brand of success, refusing to watch from the sidelines as opportunity slips through the cracks.
This won’t be easy – because it’s not supposed to be
We’re not saying that this process gets any easier once you make the decision to take control of your art. Being an artist means accepting that you will suffer in the name of creating for the greater good.
We won’t promise any guarantees for your success as an artist either.
What we will do is join you in the trenches and offer as much help, insight and encouragement as we can muster.
