What does it mean to live a creative life? A life where you work when you want rather than nine to five. A life where you get a chance to live to the fullest. Where does a person begin to live this creative life? It’s simple. It all starts with you. You must want to take that step into the unknown where you are not sure if you will have money for rent or food next week. It is a scary step, but it is a step towards a happy life for you. It is a step towards an adventure that lasts for more than one day. These steps whether they are big or small build up to the goals you want whether it is acting, or starting your own business, or simply becoming a juggler. Every step taken, every plan you make towards the creative life you desire will make a difference for you to get you there. Remember it is all about you and your happiness. People do not have to understand your decisions, because these decisions are not for them. Some things to think about as you take your first steps into the path of the unknown.
Number one, always have a focused goal. I did not say plan because sometimes plans change. The goal, though, never changes. Keeping your eye on the goal will help you know exactly what you want. See, plans do not exactly work out as we want them to. They usually lead to disappointments or wanting to give up. The set goal will lead you towards the ‘how’ in getting to your creative life.
Number two, feed your mind with positive thoughts as you work hard. If you tell your mind ‘anything is possible,’ your mind will believe it. If you tell your mind ‘it can be done,’ you mind will believe it. In the process of achieving the creative life you desire, or any life for that matter, people will question you. People will question your skills, or say what makes you think you’re any different from professionals out there. Negativity like that will put you in a hole if you start believing it. You are different from every person out there already. Two people with the same goals do not make the same decisions. Professionals were once in your place.
Decisions, steps, goals all starts with you and how much you want this. A creative life is not simple, but it is not impossible either. The first steps into the path of the unknown are not easy, but they will be worth it in the long run. As long as the goals are set and the mind is positive nothing can stop you.
