The acquisition of any skill is a simple equation:

Consistency + Patience = Results.

Basically, practice without giving up.

But consistency doesn’t mean doing something all the time to the exclusion of everything else you love, it means doing something regularly.

This applies to any goal or desire. It works for something concrete, like improving your drawing skills, or something abstract, like overcoming your fear of selling what you make.

In a nutshell–you can do anything–as long as you’re not in a hurry.

And you can practice that too! ;)

 

Ain’t Life Grand?!

 You fulfill your commitments to other people because you are a LOVING and RESPONSIBLE person.

And basically, that’s super great.

Now, imagine committing to yourself with that same consistency and integrity.

 

 Seriously, close your eyes and imagine that.

I’ll wait.

 

WHOA, do you see what I see?

When you have a new idea for your art, it’s easy to feel that it’s not interesting enough,
or a little silly, or somehow, *not worthy.*

This is ESPECIALLY true in your first steps of working on the idea in earnest—putting paint to canvas, or pen to paper, or beads to wire, or eye to camera etc.—in fact, this is usually when your idea feels dumbest—and when most people stop.

Keep going.

It’s normal to have second thoughts—your idea is at its most fragile at this point, so of course it’s vulnerable. Don’t roll your eyes at yourself–have the courage to help your little baby grow. You’re exploring an idea, not insisting on it. :-)

You can always self-censor later, so what’s the hurry?

Isn’t this Fun?

Love, your Devoted Muse

Message from Your Muse from makegreatstuff.com

How can your environment better serve your creativity?

For instance, what’s put away that needs to be out?

What’s out that needs to be put away?

What do you need to carry with you?

What do you need to leave at home?

What outdated supplies do you keep that maybe another artist/teacher/kid can use instead?

Creating an environment that serves your creativity is truly empowering.

And YOU, my artistic friend, are worth it!

Yes, Create Your Power Space!

Love, Your Devoted Muse
