The Journey of an Artist Mind turned Life Coach
Lately I have been thinking about limitless possibilities. Some of us put a cap and deadline on how far we can grow as people. Whether it is opportunity, trying new things, or opening our mind and hearts to new adventures. I understand that some believe they are limited because maybe that is how they were raised, or maybe their mentors told them they can only make so much out of their careers or life, or maybe they choose to stay where they are at and afraid of change. As an artist myself, I used to let myself think, there is NO possible way I can make great income off artwork, there is NO way I could be more than a local artist/writer/yoga teacher etc..., or there is NO way I can become successful because the average of all artists is "Broke". (Read The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron)But then I asked myself, is this all I can become because this is what others believe? If something happened to me tomorrow would I have done all I honestly could, with an open mind, to pursue being a successful artist? Have I really tried my all without letting others opinions tie me down? It became the fear that pushed me to do more, then it became the fuel to keep going and find more, and then it ultimately became the catalyst to do anything in my power to just make it happen because I believe I can BE, DO, and HAVE more. (Carmen Marshall) I read books, attended seminars, workshops, followed great mentors who were positive and supportive of my dreams and goals, and found a way to invest and achieve the artist dream life I have always wanted forever.
And for that I am Thankful!
