Motivation is a tricky thing — so many of us have a love-hate relationship with motivation. It’s the thing that gets us to the gym, it keeps on our diets, and it also helps you be a better you. But what happens when it’s not there? What happens when you turn to a motivation speaker and NADA? Motivation speeches are good at the moment you’re listening or watching…but when they’re over? Motivation is gone…yeah, that fast!
How to fix your relationship with inspiration isn’t something we think about yet it’s something important especially if you’re a creative. What defines a creative person? The beauty of being creative is as long you think you are — you are!
Whether your creativity comes in the form of a glue gun and pipe cleaners, a paintbrush or construction paper–pay attention.
As creative people, we believe that inspiration comes in waves and can’t be controlled, and if that’s the truth, we should certainly celebrate it when inspiration arrives, right? But what if we’ve been burned by inspiration?
Several struggle with the next project waiting for creativity and inspiration to hit only to be disappointed when we complete our masterpiece; art, book, blog, yet, success didn’t get the memo and your book goes unpublished, your artwork never sells or that amazing blog only gets read by you, your mom and a random person who came to your page because of a misspelled word in their search.
