80 % of Success is showing up, how much are you choosing not to show up because of fear telling you, ‘you are not made for this’ or you should wait ‘until you are ready’?

 

 

Until a certain point in my life, I have lived a majority of my time through the values, beliefs and visions of someone else without being aware of it, of how I thought I should be and what I should do to be an ‘adequate’ lovable human being.

I thought, part consciously and part unconsciously, that pleasing others, and being the person I thought they would want me to be, would be the right way of living and would give my world meaning.

This got me so off track, that the decisions I made were based on anxiety and desire for safety. I decided on what felt most comfortable. m

My ‘most comfortable’ often relied on what others thought about it. If others approved and thought it was a good Idea I would feel comfortable. I got excited about things that were based on the dreams of others (particularly family members), because I was unconsciously shaped by the views and beliefs others had what was good for me.

So my driving force for comfort and excitement was shaped by how others viewed it, crazy right? And I thought 100% it was all me. Part of it probably was, because I had some core values that did shine through and were always there, but my actions and decisions were majorly fear based actions, some through physically felt fear other actions through unconscious fear based drivers I was unaware of.

Does that resonate?

You feel like you are made for more, your current direction is not making you happy, you have yearnings you keep putting off because you are waiting until the current plan works out and the ‘not fun part’ ends by itself and it finally  reaches it’ desired potential, when you finally feel you can do what you want to do. But reality is, that putting off to be happy and enjoy what you are doing, in hopes that this job or situation changes eventually, will not make you happy and the goal post will continuously shit, so it is never attainable until you change something now.

You have to identify YOUR ideals, identify what YOUR dreams are, stop to only make others happy without knowing what makes YOU happy, stopping to please others and live your life based on what the people around you think you should do and just finally discover the real YOU.

 

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face. “ Eleanor Roosevelt

I’m sure we can all relate to the experience of thinking of something and feeling nervous, anxious or uncomfortable. It can be a vast variety of things, from fears of flying, to fears of spiders or dogs or cats, to fears of public speaking, fears of addressing an important conversation with your mum or partner or simply voicing your thoughts in a conversation because of fearing confrontation or disharmony. It can be fears of failure or of success, fears of leaving the house or fears of forgetting something. Fears are limitless and innate in us, by the function fears itself has, that is to protect us. There are different layers of fears, some are associative, fear learns what scared us or shocked us once and will match new images we see with old images and react with the emotion you felt sometime ago with the hopes of protecting you. Some fears are passed on, and projected on.

Fears are not just the very obvious fears we are aware of and can name when asked, but they are even deeper than that.

The reason people, not just artists don’t self actualize into what they ACTUALLY would have liked is because of fear redirecting them off course in order to protect, to not feel scared and to not experience discomfort.

Any reaction with the root of a fear, creates a disconnection from your true self and teaches you to not trust yourself AND your dreams you have in life.

How vulnerable do you let yourself be to stand up for your true thoughts, feelings, desires and dreams.

People have learnt to live the life of someone else, through their ideals, visions and expectations rather than their own, thinking that it’s the right way to live, not knowing better (which was me, by the way). But it is not the way.

Your heart keeps trying to redirect you all the time, it knocks on your door and tries to bring you back into alignment with your true needs, desires, thoughts and actions, but it is so hard sometimes to ‘realise’ it, because you haven’t learnt to trust your heart force, your intuition, but learnt to listen to other peoples guidance, expectations and rely heavily on the direction from others.

You learnt to be someone else disguised by the sound of your voice, the look of you and actions by you, just if you are currently not working on the life YOU want to create for yourself, your actions are not yours and your fears are currently taking the lead.

 

“Many of us live in denial of who we truly are because we fear losing someone or something and there are times that if we don’t rock the boat, too often the one we lose is ourselves…It feels good to be accepted, loved, and approved of by others, but often the membership fee to belong to that club is far too high of a price to pay.” Dennis Merritt Jones

Creativity is often feared, (mostly unconsciously) because there is more at stake.

The need people have to be loved and accepted is at the core of everything and to lose the potential to be loved is the biggest fear, to be alone, unloved, excluded, rejected… The expression of the self feels dangerous, because of that fear.

This is a universal fear. That is also why there are so many artists out there in the world, like you,  who have taken a different route in life, which has nothing to do with art or with your natural and enjoyable creative expression,  because of fears at the root of it. The extend of this issue is very real! Fear causes pain, within the self and in others. You know the saying, ‘Hurt people hurt people’? Fear continues that chain. That is why it is so important to take care of your internal fear system you have created that is running your life so you can move beyond that and stop this cycle!

 

Fearless is not the absence of fear, fearless is living in spite of the fears that scare you and learn to master them rather than being defeated by them”

Shall we do this together, so you can live powerfully through your art, free from fears and create the art and art practice you are proud of?

Then sign up to the free challenge below 🙂

If you didn’t care what others thought of you, if you knew you would always be loved no matter what, and that you would financially always be taken care of, what would YOU create?

What do YOU want to do?

If you didn’t care what others thought of you, if you knew you would always be loved no matter what, and that you would financially always be taken care of, what would YOU create?

  • Do you want to create art that you are proud of?
  • Do you sometimes dream of creating your own art practice and be a successful artist?
  • Do you already create art, but as a hobby and sometimes dream about making it be more of a career, but fear that your friends and family think you are selling out, or judge you for having this dream?
  • Do you have this underlying powerful belief that you can’t make money as an artist and have an underlying belief of the starving artist being true?

 

 

Have you been thinking about starting your own art practice, but not sure how to get started?

 
Perhaps you have been fearing you are not good enough or what others may think of you, or even big financial investments and even losses you can’t afford, in order to get your Art Business started?
 
Perhaps you fear putting yourself out there in the open? Or you may think it will take up too much time that you don’t have?

 

Maybe it could be none of the above, and something more unconscious.  I

Maybe you feel uncomfortable marrying Art with Business and somehow hesitating because of that or you lack trust towards yourself to see things through.

It could be a variety of factors, and they are mainly hidden. 

Overall confidence in yourself, your Art, your path is the most crucial part to be established that will have an effect on all of the above in the best possible way and second comes Business Strategy.

You can have a business strategy, know the steps, but not pursue the steps because of the self doubt, fears and worries. 

 
That is why I want to help you really break the old repeating cycle of  self doubt and holding onto fears and worries to make way for a lighter you, free from internal burdens holding you back from pursuing your Purpose as an Artist.
Once you have clarity, you are grounded with confidence. 
Sometimes it is the practical things put in place that help confidence emerge, such as some simple and necessary foundations, eg. being clear on your chosen Art to sell and to who and for how much, your message etc. and other times it is the deeper rooted fears and worries and assumptions that need clarity in order for it to be replaced with confidence, which only happens when you look at them.
 
We will LITERALLY look at them in this Workshop! Because your fears, worries and doubts are rooted in internal images attached to those fears and feelings. 
In this Workshop we will bring out those images, onto paper and truly SEE them. When you can see them you can change them. 
 

We will create the necessary changes IN THE CHALLENGE on your internal images, so that your fear images within will be replaced with the Images that support your mission as an artist.

Do you want to gain confidence to set up your Art Business Foundations so you can go out and find actual Buyers for your Art Practice, but don’t know where to start?

Then this Challenge may be just the answer you’ve been looking for.
