You were born with everything you need to be creative
You don't have to wait for a muse to give you inspiration;
You don't have to wait until you know everything about your craft.
You only need to get still and listen to yourself.
Tara Leigh from How to be Creative if you never thought you could
As artists we create our own obstacles. We have a tendency to compare ourselves to other artists, other shops, and how we run our business. Not taking into consideration that if we are not creative in one area we are in others, not to mention learning anything is possible.
A couple of obstacles in the creative process are
FEAR - our inner critic and EXCUSES - waiting for inspiration.
The creative process require is a little courage, also
- Surrounding yourself with the tools you need
- Finding what inspires and encourages you
- Practicing often
Trust the voice inside of you that has never stopped telling you that you need to create.
What are your creative obstacle's? How do you overcome them?
